Letter to Keir Starmer

GEORGE GALLOWAY OPEN LETTER TO DAVID CAMERON AND KEIR STARMER

ARE HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS OF GAZA MIGRANTS COMING TO UK?

George Galloway, former Labour and Respect MP and leader of the Workers Party of Britain will write to Lord David Cameron and Sir Keir Starmer today after the Israeli Intelligence Minister appeared to suggest a wave of Palestinian migrants could be sent to Israel’s allies.  

The Israeli Intelligence Minister, Gila Gamliel, writing in the Jerusalem Post on 19 November, called for a global resettlement scheme for Gaza’s entire population so that the ‘breeding ground of extremism’ which is Gaza would become Palestinian-free.

In the article the Israeli Intelligence Minister calls for pushing Palestinians out of Gaza and says that ‘Some world leaders are already discussing a worldwide refugee resettlement scheme and saying they would welcome Gazans to their countries.’

George Galloway asked of David Cameron, the new Foreign Secretary “given that the Prime Minister has said that Britain stands shoulder to shoulder with Israel, can the Foreign Secretary provide reassurance that Britain is not one of the countries discussing with Israel resettlement for hundreds of thousands of Gaza refugees, and will he join me in expressing the utmost abhorrence for this type of final solution for Gazans?”

Letter to Sir Starmer

The Israeli Intelligence Minister, Gila Gamliel, writing in the Jerusalem Post on 19 November, called for a global resettlement scheme for Gaza’s entire population so that the ‘breeding ground of extremism’ which is Gaza would become Palestinian-free. Given that you have promised unequivocal support to Israel will you clarify whether you support this chilling, utterly horrific proposal from a leading member of an Israeli government only too well able to bring it to fruition? Or has your Labour Party so lost its soul and its moral compass that there is literally nothing the Israeli government could do which would earn Labour’s censure?

Has the Labour Party become so indifferent to the views notably of its loyal support among Muslim communities, so complacent about winning the next election, that it will not even condemn brazen official calls for ethnic cleansing?

Yours,

George Galloway

Workers Party of Britain
