Once again, a new episode of the Middle East conflict will end with a cease-fire which will hopefully occur as soon as possible. Time has come to call out the actors involved in this conflict and to tell them they must resume the political dialogue. We all know that there is no military solution. An actual resumption of the negotiations between the Israeli governement and the Palestinian Authority will be the only way to avoid a stalemate and the perspective of new clashes in the next few months.
Through an appeal to Euopeans leaders launched a few months ago, JCall pointed out that without an international political intervention, the situation was likely to deteriorate heavily. Unfortunately, this has come true. Our new appeal is even more urgent: it is not too late to propose a framework to both parties and to save the chances for peace in the region.
Besides, in several European cities, we have recently witnessed demonstrations which, under the guise of supporting Palestine, have turned into violent antisemitic demonstrations. It is thus important to recall that the Israeli-Palestinian conflict must not be imported to our countries, and that it falls to people in charge of associations to set themselves apart from extremists who distort the cause they pretend to champion.
