    A total of 309 human rights groups, trade unions and political parties from across Europe called on the EU to hold Zionist regime accountable for its massacre committed in Gaza earlier this year by suspending the EU-Israel Association Agreement, the main treaty between the EU and Zionist regime. According to Iran Daily, the declaration, which has been jointly issued by major civil society bodies from across 19 countries said “Through the continued existence of the EU-Israel Association Agreement and the strengthening of the bilateral relations, the European Union and its member states are sending Zionist regime the message that it does not have to abide by international law.” The written statement calling for the suspension of the agreement was delivered to Federica Mogherini, the new EU foreign policy chief, who begins her new role this week and will make her first trip overseas to Occupied Palestinian Territories, said the European Cooperation of Committees and Associations for Palestine. Signatories to the statement include the Irish Congress of Trade Unions and national unions in Spain, France, and Belgium and political parties including Podemos, which currently tops the Spanish polls, and major NGOs including CNCD in Belgium and Trocaire in Ireland. The EU-Israel Association Agreement is the main framework for the close relationship between the EU and Tel Aviv, granting Zionist regime preferential access to European markets and allowing it to participate in more EU programs and projects than any other non-European country. The appeal for action condemns Zionist regime’s deliberate targeting of civilians during its recent attack on Gaza that martyred more than 2,000 Palestinians and argues that the failure of the EU to take tough action against Tel Aviv “contributes to the climate of impunity and lack of accountability”. “The EU is providing material support to Zionist regime’s violations of international law and failing to uphold its own commitments under international law,” the statement added. The EU has previously suspended its Association Agreement with Sri Lanka and recently introduced a raft of measures restricting trade and investment against Russia in relation to the Ukraine crisis. The failure to impose similar measures on Zionist regime despite decades of serious violations of international law amounts to a double standard, campaigners said. The statement also argues that the Zionist regime’s largely unrestricted access to European markets and participation in EU programs amount to “material support to Israel’s violations of international law”. Aneta Jerska, the coordinator of the European Coordination of Committees and Associations for Palestine (ECCP), one of the organizations that have signed the statement, said, “The huge number of mainstream organizations that are calling for the suspension of the EU-Israel Association Agreement reflects the growing frustration across Europe with the failure of European governments to respond to Zionist regime’s repeated massacres and violations of international law.” “The EU has long argued that its close relations with Zionist regime put it in strong position to engage in dialogue with Tel Aviv regarding its oppression of Palestinians, but Zionist regime’s brutal massacre in Gaza shows that this dialogue has failed. It is time for the EU to take action that will pressure Israeli regime to comply with international
