Council on International Relations in Palestine (CIR) expressed on Monday its extreme sadness for the death of Sir Gerald Kaufman, considered it a big loss for supporters of Palestinian people.
In a press release, the CIR said that the British Labour MP was an iconic figure that supported Palestine’s issue and worked for exposing the oppression and injustice the Palestinian people suffered.
Kaufman sent a message to the world through his activities that the Israeli occupation is an apartheid regime.
“After his death, Kaufman’s voice should remain alive so that humanity continues defending the Palestinian rights guaranteed by all international laws,” the CIR said.
The Jewish Labour MP, who died on Sunday aged 86, was known for his opposition to the Israeli occupation policies for decades. He once compared the Israeli occupation to the Nazis.
