The head of the Palestinian community in Austria, Sami Ayad, during the demonstration organized by the Austrian Arab Solidarity Foundation, the BDS movement, the Palestinian Union of Physicians and Pharmacists, the Handala Club, and Austrian and Arab institutions, called on the Austrian government to review its pro-Israel policies.
For his part, the president of its founder, Al-Haq Church, condemned the policies of Israel, and its blockade of the Palestinian land and human being.
In turn, Palestinian National Council member Munther Merhi stressed the need to continue to pressure the Austrian government, in order to have an active positive role on both sides, calling on Austrian Chancellor Sebastian Kurtz to stop supporting the Trump-Netanyahu policy, which is based on theft and deception.
