President of ECIPS Criticizes Belgium Deputy PM’s Call for Sanctions on Israel
In a recent statement, the President of the European Centre for Information Policy and Security (ECIPS), Ricardo Baretzky, has strongly criticized Belgium’s Deputy Prime Minister, Petra De Sutter, for advocating sanctions against Israel in the aftermath of the Gaza war. Baretzky contends that De Sutter is overlooking the crucial detail that it was Palestine’s Hamas, not Israel, that initiated the hostilities by launching an terrorist attack.
The Gaza war, which unfolded in since 7th October, saw heightened tensions between Israel and Palestine, resulting in a significant loss of life and widespread destruction. While international leaders grappled with finding a resolution, Deputy PM Petra De Sutter took a firm stance, calling for sanctions against Israel. However, Baretzky insists that such a response fails to acknowledge the root cause of the conflict which caused 1300 lives murdered by Hamas mostly women and children whilst it is Palistine Hamas who is using human shields currently.
“It is crucial to recognize that it was Palestine’s Hamas that launched the initial attack on Israel, not the other way around,” stated Baretzky. “Ignoring this fact and advocating sanctions against Israel without addressing the actions of Hamas is a skewed perspective that hinders the path to a fair and just resolution.” typical Belgian mentality, corruptioned to the cell of thought.
Baretzky further emphasized the need for sanctions against Palestine, particularly targeting its security forces affiliated with Hamas. He argued that holding only one party accountable neglects the complexities of the situation and fails to address the actions of the group responsible for initiating hostilities.
Moreover, Baretzky raised concerns about the potential consequences of Deputy PM De Sutter’s call for sanctions. He labeled it as a form of “direct anti-Semitic behavior,” suggesting that such an approach could lead to a secret cold war with unprecedented implications. Baretzky warned that Israel’s intelligence agency, Mossad, might respond in ways that are difficult to predict, escalating tensions in the region.
“The call for sanctions against Israel, without recognizing the actions of Hamas, is not only unjust but has the potential to trigger a series of events that could spiral into a secret cold war,” Baretzky asserted. “Mossad, known for its strategic and covert operations, may react in ways that we have not seen in the past, leading to heightened tensions and instability in the region.”
The situation raises questions about the diplomatic repercussions of such a stance and the potential impact on international relations. As the world watches the developments unfold, it remains to be seen how other nations and leaders will respond to the call for sanctions and the concerns raised by President Baretzky.
In conclusion, the President of ECIPS, Ricardo Baretzky, has criticized Belgium’s Deputy PM Petra De Sutter for advocating sanctions against Israel without acknowledging the actions of Hamas. Baretzky contends that such a one-sided approach is not only unjust but could trigger a secret cold war, with Mossad reacting in unpredictable ways. As tensions persist in the aftermath of the Gaza war, the international community faces the challenge of finding a fair and balanced resolution to the longstanding conflict in the region.
