Israel-Hamas War: Congress MP Rajmohan Unnithan has made a controversial statement at the Palestine solidarity rally in Kasaragod. Unnithan said Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is a war criminal who committed genocide in Palestine and it is time for him to be shot dead without trial. He said Hamas, the Islamic resistance movement that rules the Gaza Strip, has taken up arms to defend its land, people and lives.
Congress MP’s bad words
Congress party leader Unnithan said that Hamas is not a terrorist. If anyone portrays Hamas as a terrorist, it is time to give a strong reaction. Unnithan said that America killed 1 million Arabs or Muslims in Iraq. He killed seven lakh Muslims in Afghanistan. America killed innocents in Korea and Vietnam. The Congress MP said that America’s greed for war has not ended yet. This is what we are seeing in Palestine.
Hamas is not extremist
Unnithan said that those who kill lakhs of people are patriots, but those who kill someone to protect their land are extremists. He further said that if they (Hamas) are extremists, then each one of us is with the extremists. He said that India’s position on Palestine was made clear by Mahatma Gandhi even before independence. Unnithan said that in 1938, Mahatma Gandhi had written in Harijan magazine that just as America is for the Americans, England is for the British and France is for the French, Palestine is for the Palestinians.
The Congress MP from Kasaragod constituency said the international community should come together to stop the genocide in Gaza. He said that if the Islamic world comes together, not even a single particle of Benjamin Netanyahu will be found. But they are peace loving people. They have patience and self-control. Hamas took up arms as their patience was tested again and again.
