Despite the massacre in Gaza that horrified the world, they did not stop supporting Israel

The attacks launched by Israel on Gaza following the bloody Hamas incursion on October 7 and the deaths of hundreds of Palestinians, including children, sparked debates about the support provided by many countries to Israel.

A day after the attack on the Gaza hospital, which horrified the world, US President Joe Biden made a supportive visit to Israel yesterday and claimed that Israel did not carry out the attack, sparking reactions.

British Prime Minister Rishi Sunak will also travel to Israel today and meet Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. Both countries sent warships to the region to support Israel after the outbreak of war.

NOTABLE SILENCE IN EUROPE

In many European countries, governments continue to provide strong support to Israel while superficially criticizing Palestinian civilian deaths. While many European leaders reacted very harshly to the bloody Hamas attack, they remained silent about the massacres in Gaza.

Hugging Netanyahu, Biden said: “We will never leave you alone.”

Palestinian Prime Minister Mohammad Shtayyeh said international support encourages Israel to “commit more crimes.”

While the United States and the United Kingdom lead among countries supporting Israel, top European leaders such as German Chancellor Olaf Scholz, French President Emmanuel Macron and Italian Prime Minister Giorgia Meloni made a joint statement with the United States and the United Kingdom. United and stated that “they are united in their support for the State of Israel.” While the European Union announced that aid to Palestine would be reviewed, demonstrations in support of Palestine were blocked in many European countries.

The demonstration in support of Palestine held in London was the subject of controversy in England.

A DIFFERENT VOICE WITHIN THE EU: IRELAND

Among the EU countries, the country that gave the greatest support to Palestine was Ireland, as in previous years. Irish President Michael Higgins criticized European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen’s remarks on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, saying: “She does not speak for Ireland.”

German Chancellor Scholz also made a supportive visit to Israel this week.

Australia, Canada and New Zealand announced their solidarity with Israel.

Meanwhile, it is noteworthy that the Russian bill proposing a humanitarian ceasefire in Gaza was rejected by the United States, England, France and Japan with “no” votes in the UN Security Council last week.

ATTITUDE OF CHINA AND RUSSIA

China and Russia, which have recently been experiencing tensions with Western countries, reacted to the attacks on Gaza despite their economic relations with Israel.

Russian President Vladimir Putin stated that Israel’s ground operation in Gaza would have serious consequences for all parties. Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi said that “Israel’s actions went beyond self-defense.”

The loss of life is increasing rapidly in Gaza, which Israel has bombed for 13 days.

MEDIATION EXIT FROM Türkiye

Türkiye was one of the countries that reacted harshly to Israel’s attacks on Gaza.

Regarding the Israeli hospital massacre, President Erdoğan said: “I curse the perpetrators of this attack, which constitutes a crime against humanity and amounts to genocide against the people of Gaza.” Protests against Israel took place in Türkiye.

On the other hand, Turkey has been drawing attention since the beginning of the tension as a potential mediator to free the hostages held by Hamas and end the war. Finally, Foreign Minister Hakan Fidan proposed a guarantee for Palestine.

As Turkey steps up its diplomatic efforts, Foreign Minister Hakan Fidan met with Egyptian President Sisi last week.

THE ARAB WORLD IS STANDING

Countries like Egypt and Jordan, which have played a major role in the Palestinian issue for years, are increasing pressure on the West to stop attacks on Gaza.

The leaders of Palestine, Egypt and Jordan canceled their summit with Biden after the hospital attack in Gaza.

Reactions to the attacks in Gaza are also growing in countries such as the United Arab Emirates, Morocco and Bahrain, which have recently taken steps to normalize relations with Israel. Saudi Arabia reportedly suspended normalization talks with Israel. Qatar emphasized that Israel was solely responsible for the war.

Support for Palestine is growing from the governments of Iran and Syria, which are Israel’s biggest “enemies” in the region and whose potential for involvement in the war is causing concern.

Among the countries that condemn Israel’s actions are countries like South Africa and Brazil, which are far from the region but are important in world politics.
