Colombia cuts diplomatic ties with Israel amid ongoing Gaza genocide

Colombia cuts diplomatic ties with Israel amid ongoing conflict, becoming the third Latin American nation to do so since the Israel-Hamas war began on 7 October 2023.



On 4 May 2023, Colombia became the third Latin American nation to sever diplomatic relations with Israel following the intensification of the Israel-Hamas conflict which began on 7 October 2023.

Colombian President Gustavo Petro announced the decision during a May Day rally in Bogota, where he condemned Israel’s actions in Gaza as “genocidal.”

President Petro’s statements at the rally included a poignant declaration that “if Palestine dies, humanity dies,” signaling a strong stance against Israel’s military campaign.

The Colombian leader has also aligned with South Africa in seeking to bring a case against Israel for genocide at the International Court of Justice.

In response to President Petro’s announcement, Israeli Foreign Minister Israel Katz labelled the Colombian President as “antisemitic and full of hate,” arguing that the move indirectly supports Hamas.

This military organization initiated a deadly assault on Israeli territory on 7 October, leading to significant Israeli casualties of 1,169 and numerous hostages taken, with 129 still unreturned.

This diplomatic break follows similar actions by Bolivia, which ended its relations with Israel in late October of last year. Other countries in the region, including Chile and Honduras, have also recalled their ambassadors in light of the ongoing conflict.

The situation in Gaza remains dire, with the Palestinian Health Ministry reporting a death toll of 34,596 and 77,816 injuries since the beginning of the Israeli offensive last October.

The ministry also reported that 28 Palestinians were killed and 51 injured in the last 24 hours alone on 2 May. Rescue operations have been hampered by Israel’s continued offensive in Gaza, with many people trapped under rubble or stranded on roads, unable to be reached by aid workers.

Terrorists need re-education. Also need condoms for family planning.

Who wants to accept Hamas?

Who wants to accept Palestine? tsk tsk tsk

Horse reader only quote horse’s fart from 2019, and not from the chronology of events since 1990s. No wonder can be confused with timeline when Hamas was formed.

During Netanyahu’s long tenure, his approach to Hamas’ regime in Gaza has been largely leaving it alone — even at times propping it up as a counterweight to the Palestinian Authority that rules the West Bank, through measures like facilitating cash transfers from Qatar to the Islamist group. The basic idea, he reportedly said at a 2019 meeting of his Likud party, was that the existence of Hamas foreclosed a negotiated two-state solution to the conflict. “Anyone who wants to thwart the establishment of a Palestinian state has to support bolstering Hamas and transferring money to Hamas,” he said in… Read more »

Israel helped to create hamas. Israel helped finance Hamas (even funded their schools), and supported Hamas in the overthrow of PLO, because hardcore zionists never wanted to negotiate for a 2-state solution. That’s why they assassinated Yitzak Rabin.

Shlomo Brom, a retired general and former deputy to Israel’s national security adviser, said an empowered Hamas helped Mr. Netanyahu avoid negotiating over a Palestinian state.

Do your research. There is more than meets the eye.

Nobody invites terrorists to attack Israel on 7th October 2023 and Sept 11.

They are all radicalized.

Netanyahu already said : No Hostages, No Cease Fire !!

Next is Rafah . lets watch

Let them be. We have US, UK , India, France, Singapore, Europe, etc supporting Israel. Not concern with those who likes to join terrorist countries.

Seems Israel’s circle of friends is shrinking.

The pro-Hamas lovers are glad to know that there is now another country that they can be deported to.

Israel has trained Singapore soldiers for many years.

We have received Israel training so as to protect Singapore .

We need to keep up the good relations with Israel

Israel has plenty of friends including me.

Look! He’s surrounded by characters who really look like drug dealers and drug lords! And he had just ditched Israel as drugs customer? That’s a plus for Israel! Good riddance!

Oh Dear…now Israel is going to suffer from shortage of cocaine. Oh Dear.
