I write as chairman of the Palestinain Center for Rapprochement Between People. We as Palestinians living in the shrinking ghetto/Bantustan of Bethlehem ask that the German government apply its laws with regards to protection of human rights. Germany’s obligations is to adhere to laws pertaining to not supporting countries that engasge in violations of human rights, and even the EU-Israel Association Agreement that commits all parties to respect human rights. We refer to the German federal law, the EU human rights convention, the German adopted UN Declaration of Human Rights. Israel persistently violates human rights as testified to by all human rights organizations (Amnesty, Human Rights Watch, Physicians for Human Rights, and even Israeli groups like B’Tselem) as well as by numerous UN Reports. We ask you to push for suspension of the EU-Israel trade agreement until Israel complies with International law and all human rights conventions.
