Chile has suspended Free Trade Agreement (FTA) negotiations with Israel and id considering the withdrawal of its ambassador to Tel Aviv in protest against the Israeli bombing campaign on Palestinian civilians in the Gaza Strip.

The Chilean-Palestinian parliamentary group told HispanTV that the Chilean government will also seek Israel's condemnation by the UN Security Council (UNSC) after meeting with the Chilean Foreign Heraldo Munoz.

Chilean deputies and senators of Palestinian origin went to the Foreign Ministry on Monday to demand a stronger position against Israel regarding its actions in the Gaza Strip.

With the number of victims of Israeli attacks passing the 200 mark, parliamentarians of all backgrounds have demanded urgent action by the Chilean government.

Home to a large Palestinian community, the aggression on Gaza has not gone unnoticed in Chile.

Michelle Bachelet's government last week condemned the Israeli aggression.

Activists calling for the boycott of Israel in response to its breaches of international law in ragards to its treatment of the Palestinians will hope the example set by Chile will open the way for other countries to do the same.

The Hypocrisy is Overwhelming

So....where is Chile's righteous and equivalent moral stance against Russia for their invasion of the Ukraine and slaughter of the innocent? Oh, wait, Russia is one of their largest economic trading partners- that's right!

Frankly, what of value does Chile export? Perhaps Israel should ban export of technology to Chile - see how they cope without microchips, mobile phones, medical equipment, drugs etc etc. This is nothing other than pandering to Arabist interests and Chile should be deeply ashamed. Still, perhaps it is hard for South American counties with their limited experience to back a lone democracy in the middle-east. I encourage people to boycott Chile - if only I could find products to boycott!

Thank goodness someone is talking about international law. Up here in Canada, we prefer taking sides and exchanging insults to actually looking at the evidence for a clear picture of who is doing what, in contradiction of which laws. Bravo Chile! I hope more countries of good conscience follow your example.
