Chile to suspend trade talks with Israel over Gaza bombing

World Bulletin / News Desk

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.

This step taken by Chile is a courageous one and should be followed by other countries, despite the aggressive propaganda campaign that Israel mounts with the help of the US and Western European countries to gag any criticism of Israel's policies of dispossession and murder against Palestinians. Any other country doing what Israel is doing to the Palestinians would meet the full wrath of the "international community". It seems Libyan civilians were worth saving, but not Palestinian lives.

Big big respect to Chile. As a UK citizen I'm disgusted at my governments lack of anything against the Israeli murderers. After all, they were responsible for this dating back to 1946!!!

After the fall of Muhammad Morsi, no active leader is there to stop Israel. Turkey, Qatar and now Chile need to take brave action to stop Israel for now and forever. Why is Iran quite by the way?
