Accordingly a group of Palestinian activists from ” Palestine Defense forces” team decided to tell him that the EU must oppose all actions of the so-called ‘Israel’.
Dear minister, you know full well this Israeli government, like those before, have no intention of advancing peace, only advancing their borders. I understand the need for diplomacy but only sanctions both at a national & EU level will stop them wiping Palestine off the map …

Israel is an illegitimate terrorist regime guilty of committing crimes against humanity it commits many crimes toward the innocent people in palestine !
Israel represents that It respects the humanity but it's 100% not like that … Israel is a racist state

Peace and Israel are words that do not come together, but war and crime suit them

The European Union is willing to support and facilitate resumed meaningful negotiations between the two parties, to resolve all final status issues and achieve a just and lasting peace. They expressed their intention to engage immediately with the new government and with all relevant stakeholders!
It is worth mentioning that The agenda of the new government includes a possible declaration of sovereignty over Jewish settlements and the Jordan Valley in the West Bank – a de facto annexation.
Such a move will likely cause international uproar and inflame tensions in the West Bank.
Any upcoming Israeli government coalition that annexes more occupied Palestinian land will not only pose a clear threat to the international system based on the rules of international law but would threaten peace, security and stability in the entire Middle East as well.
