Spain’s acting social rights minister on Sunday urged Europe to act urgently against planned genocide in Palestine. Ione Belarra’s remarks came in a video shared on her X account, in which she spoke to reporters during a pro-Palestine protest in Madrid.

All people throughout Europe ask and demand an end once and for all to this planned genocide, this ethnic cleansing of the people of Palestine that is being carried out by the State of Israel.

The European leaders, including the Spanish, are not up to the gravity of the circumstances. We do not want to be complicit in this planned genocide and we think that Europe must act urgently. I believe that Europe is going to pay dearly for this hypocrisy.

The public is astonished to see how the whole position of the EU is subordinated to the interests of the USA and the Zionist State of Israel. According to the BBC, the Israeli military drops about 6 bombs per minute on the Palestinians in the Gaza Strip.

Saying that such a position can change today, the minister called on European countries once again to suspend diplomatic relations with Israel, and apply exemplary economic sanctions against Israel’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and the entire political leadership, as well as an arms embargo!

Of course, (we should) take Netanyahu to the International Criminal Court to be judged as what he is, a war criminal, she said and added: I insist, not with our silence and not with our complicity. We need the European Union to act.

Israel has heavily bombarded Gaza since October 7 when the Palestinian group Hamas carried out a cross-border counter attack, killing 1,400 people, and taking many hostages.

The Israeli army’s spokesperson, Daniel Hagari, on Saturday announced expanding its operations, and moving to the next phase of our war against Hamas, which includes ground operations.

Gaza’s 2.3 million residents are also grappling with shortages of food, water, fuel, and medicine due to Israel’s blockade of the enclave.

Excellent declaration from the Spanish Minister of Social Rights. It’s good to see that she sees evil and smells the cruel scent of death and destruction carried out by the terrorist state of JEWISH Israel.

The Spanish government has “categorically” rejected Israeli accusations that remarks by ministers — who condemned the ongoing aggression against the Palestinians in the Gaza Strip — are “absolutely immoral”.
