General Chairman of the DPP Golkar Party Airlangga Hartarto strongly criticized the Israeli army’s attack on the Palestinian people. According to Airlangga, humankind should forgive each other and maintain peace, especially at this time it was still in the atmosphere of Eid.
“The Golkar Party strongly condemns the actions of the Israeli military that are responsible for the violence,” said Airlangga during a virtual halal bihalal event with Golkar Party officials.
Airlangga said the attack by the Israeli army at the end of Ramadan at the Al-aqsa Mosque was outrage. This is because this was done when Palestinian Muslims were praying tarawih.
“We have witnessed that until now there are still attacks by Israeli soldiers against Palestinians in the Gaza Strip which have killed at least 100 people. They have become martyrs, including children and women, as well as hundreds of other injured victims,” said the Coordinating Minister for Economic Affairs.
Airlangga agreed, if the Indonesian Government had taken the initiative and garnered support for the Palestinian settlement. He supports Indonesia to mobilize strength through the Islamic Cooperation Organization (OIC), the Non-Aligned Movement (NAM), and the CEIRPP (Committee on The Exercise of The Inalienable Right of The Palestinian People).
He stated that Indonesia’s support for Palestine was in line with the Golkar Party. Therefore, he urged the Government of the Republic of Indonesia to propose the Security Council (DK) of the United Nations (UN) to intervene and take concrete steps to stop the violence perpetrated by Israel.
“Real steps are needed so that more civilians do not become victims of the Palestinian-Israeli conflict,” hoped Airlangga.
Airlangga said that the Golkar Party also urged each party to refrain from committing acts of violence that could worsen the situation and cause more victims to fall.
He also emphasized that the war will not solve the problem between Palestine and Israel. He considered that the war would only harm both parties.
Airlangga also called for all parties to solve their problems in a one-table diplomacy path through the negotiation process in the framework of finding a peaceful solution to the conflict between the two countries.
“The world’s energy should be concentrated and focused on the humanitarian war against Covid-19 which currently still haunts 215 countries around the world. We should work together, collaborate and unite against Covid-19 which has taken its toll,” concluded Airlangga.
