Palestinian ambassador to Greece condemns Nazi crimes in World War II

Headline: “Tubasi briefed Greek parliament members on the latest developments”

“Ambassador of Palestine in Greece Marwan Tubasi briefed Greek parliament members on the latest developments, and particularly American Secretary of State Mike Pompeo’s declaration regarding the settlements (refers to his statement that the US does not consider them illegal; see note below –Ed.)…

Tubasi emphasized that the rejection of Israel’s policies, the rise of fascism and racism there, the settlement policy, and the occupation’s crimes need not be considered an antisemitic position, as some of the Arabs in the area are considered Semites.

In addition, he emphasized that the Palestinian people condemns all crimes that have been committed throughout history against peoples and individuals, including the crime that was committed during World War II by the Nazis and was directed against all of humanity – the variety of religions and races. He also emphasized that our people, which is being subjected to the occupation’s despicable crimes, respects all members of the monotheistic religions and all the peoples’ freedom and self-determination.”

US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo announced the US administration’s new position on Israeli towns in the West Bank on Nov. 18, 2019, stating: "After carefully studying all sides of the legal debate... the establishment of Israeli civilian settlements in the West Bank is not, per se, inconsistent with international law."
