The head of the Kuwaiti Parliament Marzouq Ali Al-Ghenim has renewed his call to dismiss Israel from the international union of parliaments as a response to its continued aggression towards Palestinians, reported on Sunday.

Al-Ghanim’s remarks were delivered during the 133rd conference of the Inter-Parliamentary Union (IPU) held in Geneva last week.

“The least thing to do in the face of the Israeli violations and the bloodshed in Palestine is to dismiss those outcast people [in reference to the Israelis] whose crimes are chargeable on all levels,” Al-Ghanim said.

He also said that Israeli crimes are “contradictory” to the principles of the IPU, Geneva Conventions, all religions and every human covenant.

“With no doubt, I am repeating that we are not against Judaism as a religion and a value… but we oppose Zionism, which we have experienced as a synonym for racism,” he stated.

Calling for peace, he said: “We are not calling for genocide, but calling for peace based on justice, honour, UN conventions and international law… I am calling for the IPU members to support our measures aiming to put pressure on the Israeli occupation to help Palestinians establish their own state with occupied Jerusalem as its capital.”
