Israeli assassinations condemned
The Secretariat of the Communist Party of Australia denounces in the strongest terms the bloody campaign of assassination launched by the Israeli Government against those struggling to end Israeli occupation and establish an independent Palestinian state. Sharon and the military junta he directs are intent on violence. Sharon is a man of war and war erupts wherever he goes. He, however, continues to receive the unquestioning support of the US administration. The real aims of the Israeli Government's murderous actions are to destroy any and every attempt to reach a peaceful and just settlement, so that it can pursue its aim of a "Greater Israel". This includes saving the existing and building more illegal Israeli settlements on Palestinian land occupied following the 1967 war. Most of those killed by Israeli missiles and armoured incursions into Palestinian areas are Palestinian civilians. We support the proposal of many world governments that a UN peacekeeping force be sent to the area to protect the Palestinian Gaza Strip and the West Bank from Israeli military occupation and bloody oppression. The way to peace and an end to the killings is for all Israeli forces to withdraw and the immediate establishment of an independent Palestinian state.
