The ruling National Conference (NC) has described Israel's action in Gaza "a pre-planned aggression to carry out genocide of innocent men, women and children".
"Israel's relentless campaign of terror against innocent Muslims in Palestine was not only a blot on the conscience of Israel, but also an indictment of the international community for being silent spectators to this bloodshed," said NC leader Sheikh Nazir Ahmed.
He said Israel's stated position on its assumed sovereignty in Palestine lacked legality and the expansion of Israel's territory over the decades was a clear sign of Israel's colonial and aggressive designs under the diplomatic patronage of not only the United States, but also the European states who have maintained a criminal silence over this genocide.
"Israel's existence is a derivative of oppression, illegal occupation and institutionalised vandalism and plunder. In the recent past, Israel even went to the extent of uprooting hundreds and thousands of olive trees of the occupied lands to economically persecute the innocent Muslims of Palestine. The wall of neo-apartheid constructed to cage Palestinians and suffocate them has become a hallmark symbol of what Israel has come to stand for," said Nazir.
He said Palestine had been shrunk into a strip of caged land and transformed from a free state into a wired and barricaded ghetto by the Israeli forces.
Lashing out at the US' unconditional political and moral support to Israel, Nazir questioned the morality
and conscience of the Western leaders in allowing even unborn babies to be shot dead in the womb. "The American support to Israel is surreal and unfortunately consistent with American policy of appeasing Israel in spite of her war-crimes and genocide in Palestine. This patronage defies not only an inherent value-system of humanity that should govern all disputes in the world, but also tears covenants of the International Law to shreds".
More than 1,400 people have died in Israeli action in Palestine, sparking protests in several countries and civil society groups.
