Greek Opposition Pushes for Palestine Recognition

Greece’s main opposition party, SYRIZA, urged the government to recognize Palestine. Party leader Stefanos Kasselakis cited historical ties between Greece and Palestine, highlighting the need to prioritize this issue in foreign policy. During his West Bank visit, Kasselakis witnessed the destruction in Gaza and criticized Israel’s actions as a “bloodbath.” He called for Europe, including Greece, to adopt an independent stance favoring peace, rather than following America’s lead. Since October, Israel’s actions in Gaza have resulted in nearly 36,000 Palestinian deaths, with the International Court of Justice accusing Israel of genocide.–News Desk
