The Muslim Association of Britain (MAB) has announced that a British MP and the European Campaign to End the Siege of Gaza have launched a legal action directed at the EU in regard to the Israeli blockade of Gaza. According to the announcement:
Clare Short MP and the European Campaign to End the Siege of Gaza have launched a legal action to require the European Union to uphold the human rights conditions entrenched in the EU-Israel Association Agreement. The action was launched in a letter sent to President Barroso and Javier Solana, the High Representative for the Common Foreign and Security Policy, spelling out the way in which the Treaty conditions are being breached and the way in which international law applies. The case is being taken forward on behalf of the complainants by Public Interest Lawyers of 8 Hylton Street, Birmingham.
An earlier post reported that a delegation from an anti-Gaza blockade campaign, likely the same group, had been expected to meet with high-ranking EU official Javier Solana.
A NEFA Foundation report documents the numerous ties between the European Campaign to End the Siege of Gaza and the Federation of Islamic Organizations in Europe (FIOE), essentially the Muslim Brotherhood in Europe. Previous posts have discussed the campaign aimed at ending the Israeli blockade likely orchestrated by the global Muslim Brotherhood and its European representatives. The MAB is the U.K. FIOE member organization.
