Palestinians in Europe urge Ashton to condemn Israeli bombing

Nov. 25, 2012 11:46 A.M. (Updated: Nov. 25, 2012 11:46 A.M.)
BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- A coalition of Palestinians living in Europe wrote to the EU foreign policy chief Catherine Ashton on Saturday urging her to take a stronger stance condemning Israel's bombing of the Gaza Strip last week.

"To react to the onslaught by asking Israel to make sure that it does all it can to avoid civilian casualties in its onslaught, is, at best, an advice to a drunken driver to watch out for the pedestrians and, at worst, an endorsement of the aggression perpetrated by an occupying state," the letter from the General Union of Palestinian Communities in Europe said.

"This is not a conflict between two states. We need to remember this at all times. The occupier should not be allowed to attack the same people it occupies and add insult to injury."
