The Joint List announced on Monday, April 16, that it is weighing whether to lodge a complaint with the attorney general against the far-right Minister of Internal Security, Gilad Erdan, for incitement and endangering the life of Hadash MK Ayman Odeh, for remarks that Erdan made about the leader of the parliamentary bloc.

In an interview with Israel Army Radio on Sunday, Erdan launched a fierce personal attack on Odeh after the latter voiced a condemnation of the American, British and French air strikes on Syria.

Interior Minister Aryeh Deri refused to allow the mayor of the French city of Gennevilliers, Patrice Leclerc, to enter Israel on Monday, April 16. Deri’s move came in the wake of a recommendation by Minister of Strategic Affairs Gilad Erdan. Leclerc intended to enter the Israeli-controlled West Bank via the Allenby Crossing from Jordan with his wife.

Last November, Leclerc was part of a Communist and French Left delegation of mayors who unsuccessfully attempted to enter Israel to visit two Palestinians imprisoned by Israel: Fatah leader Marwan Barghouti and Addameer’s Palestinian-French field researcher and human rights defender Salah Hamouri, who is incarcerated under “administrative detention.” At that time, the Association for Civil Rights in Israel (ACRI) issued a statement protesting the decision to bar members of the delegation from entering the country. They called the Israeli law allowing authorities to bar entry by boycott advocates a violation of basic democratic principles by making political views a consideration in allowing foreign citizens to visit Israel and the territories. “Anyone seeking to enter Israel certainly shouldn’t have to toe the line with the current Israeli government position on the subject of the occupation,” ACRI maintains.

comunistaThe signatory Parties:

- express their vehement condemnation of the imperialist military aggression against the Syrian Arab Republic carried out by the USA, United Kingdom and France;

- consider that this unacceptable act of aggression, which is a clear violation of the United Nations Charter and of International Law, is an integral part of the escalation of confrontation and wars of aggression by imperialism, with unpredictable and dangerous consequences for Syria, the Middle East and the world;

The Tudeh Party of Iran strongly condemns the pre-planned military strike by the aforementioned imperialist countries on Syria in the early morning of Saturday 14 April 2018 and considers it to have been an open and flagrant violation of international law and the United Nations Charter.

The attack was carried out despite the dispatch of an investigation team commissioned by the secretariat of the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) which had been scheduled to begin its investigation of the alleged chemical attack in Douma, near Damascus, and the identity of its main perpetrators today - Saturday 14 April 2018.

Since the dawn of Saturday, the governments of the USA, Great Britain and France have launched a missile attack against Syria, fuelling the tensions in the Southeast Mediterranean region.

This attack was based, as in the recent past, on various pretexts (eg the never found weapons of mass destruction in Iraq) that cannot hide the real causes. The real reason for the attack is the relentless and endless competition of the killers of the peoples to control energy nodes, markets and transport routes.

Communist parties all around the world shared declarations condemning the imperialist operation on Syria launched by the airstrike by US-UK-France forces and organized mass rallies and protests.

The Communist Party of Turkey organized a rally on Saturday, 14th of April, denouncing the US-UK-France led attack on Syria. Following the public distribution of TKP's declaration condemning the attack by TKP members in various districts of Istanbul, hundreds of citizens gathered in Kadıköy and marched in a central square. The protesters held banners and chanted slogans in solidarity with Syrian peoples against the imperialist operation, including "Down with the US", "Down with NATO", "Invaders always lose", ""Killer US get out of the Middle East," "The people of Syria are not alone".

The Workers’ Party have condemned air strikes carried out by United States, French and British forces on Syria Friday night, saying they will only strengthen the hand of jihadi extremists who control territory inside Syria’s borders.

Speaking on the matter, Workers’ Party representative Gavin Mendel-Gleason said:
“Friday night’s attacks will doubtless have been welcomed with glee by the ‘Army of Islam’ jihadists who the Syrian army had only weeks previously successfully eliminated from Ghouta province outside Damascus.

Yesterday, Saturday, April 14, the United States together with the United Kingdom and France, launched strikes on a number of targets in Syria in response to the alleged chemical attack in the Damascus suburb of Douma which they blamed on the Syrian government. Damascus has rejected all the allegations, noting that all of its chemical stockpiles have been destroyed, for which confirmation has been provided by the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW).

The Communist Party of Britain unreservedly condemns the latest act of aggression in Syria by Britain, the USA and France today (April 14). International law cannot be upheld by breaching the most important articles of the United Nations Charter, which ban unprovoked military attacks by one member state upon another.

As the post-World War Two Nuremberg Tribunal ruled: 'To initiate a war of aggression is not only an international crime; it is the supreme international crime, differing only from other war crimes in that it contains within itself the accumulated evil of the whole'.
