Gaza, 9 Rajab 1436/28 April 2015 (MINA) – Member of Hamas political bureau Izzat al-Resheq said, “The United States has never been objective in dealing with the Palestinian Question”.
Commenting on an American draft law that bans the boycott of Israel, Resheq said in a statement on Monday, “The United States has always been bias to Israel and supports its aggressions against the Palestinian people”, The Palestinian Information Center (PIC) quoted by Mi’raj Islamic News Agency (MINA) as reporting.
The latest of its pro-Israel standings was the Congress’s voting in favor of the free trade agreement with Europe on the condition that the EU does not participate in any form of economic boycott against Israel”.
Resheq stressed the necessity to boycott Israel on both international and Arab levels.
He called on the EU not to accept such conditions which support Israel in killing the Palestinian women and children, displacing Palestinians, and destroying their houses.
Some of the US MPs submitted a draft law to ban the boycott of Israel and to confront its boycott campaigns especially in Europe.
The Ynet Hebrew newspaper website revealed that the new law grants Israel protection from sanctions as well as enjoying a special economic status with the US in particular.
The Hebrew newspaper stated that this move is due to the increasing of Boycott, Divest, Sanctions (BDS) activities. The BDS aim at imposing sanctions against Israel through boycott campaigns worldwide with great achievements in Europe.
The American draft law threatens boycotting the countries and institutions which boycott Israel. (T/P011/R03)
