Next June 9th, with UDMF and their European partners, vote for Palestine.

30 000 people died, thousands of people are injured, two million people have been displaced, hospital shave been destroyed, the population is facing famine and the territory has become unlivable : this is the tragic assessment of the slaughter that has been carrying out in Gaza by the israeli army for several months.

This follows on from decades of occupation, colonization, annexation of territories, blockade, violence, targeted assassinations, arbitrary arrests and

Facing this injustice, the French and European diplomacy have been disgraceful : unconditional support to Israel, demonstrations in favor of Palestine
prohibited, criminalization of anyone supporting Palestine…

That is why the Union of French Muslim Democrats (UDMF) has decided, along with other parties all across Europe, in Germany, Belgium, the Netherlands, Spain, Luxembourg and Sweden, to form a coalition in preparation for the European election of June 9th 2024 in order to have the Palestinian sheard. The goal is also to fight against the rise of islamophobic parties which are targeting Muslims all over Europe.

During this campaign, we will demand a radical change in the French and European diplomacy. Peace in Palestine can only be achieved through the end of occupation and colonization. And to do so, we must impose sanctions on Israel, just like we are imposing sanctions on Russia following the invasion of Ukraine.

We will demand, among other :

– A ban on selling weapons and military equipment to Israel.
– An embargo on Israeli products and the end of trading withIsrael.
– A ban for any European citizen to enlist in the Israeli army or be subject to legal proceedings.
– Closing down European airspace to Israeli aviation, European harbours to Israeliships and European routes to Israeli transportation.
– Exclusion of Israel from any international and European sport competition, like the 2024 Olympic Games or the Football Champions

The European Union, founded on the principle of peace, must no longer tolerate the injustice and suffering inflicted on the Palestinian people. That is why it is fundamental to send to the European Parliament deputies who will make the Palestinians’ voiceheard
