Enhedslistens årsmøde afviser kontroversielle forslag om Israel og Gaza

At Enhedslistens (The Unity List) recent annual meeting, a number of controversial proposals regarding the party’s policies on Israel and Gaza were discussed and ultimately rejected. The proposals, ranging from cooperation with controversial groups to changes in the official stance on Israel, did not garner sufficient support among the delegates. The proposals presented during the meeting included, among others, a partnership with the organization DFLP, which is suspected of participating in terrorist activities alongside Hamas. Additionally, there were proposals calling for a more radical stance towards Israel, including a proposal to proclaim “From the river to the sea, Palestine will be free.” However, all these proposals were rejected through amendments or direct voting, confirming the party’s current political line.

Pelle Dragsted, the political spokesperson for Enhedslisten, expressed satisfaction with the outcome on the social media platform X: “I am very pleased that at Enhedslisten’s annual meeting, as expected, there was strong support for our position on Israel-Palestine.” Dragsted also emphasized the party’s continued support for international law and human rights, as well as a balanced approach to the conflict: “In our condemnation of both Hamas’ terrorism and Israel’s war crimes. In our consistent support for international law and human rights. And in our insistence that both Palestinians and Israelis have the right to live in peace and security behind secure borders.”

Trine Pertou Mach, the foreign affairs spokesperson for Enhedslisten, had stated to a Danish newspaper, Berlingske, before the meeting that the party clearly condemns Hamas and does not support the idea of Israel ceasing to exist. This viewpoint was also reflected in the voting at the annual meeting, where the more extreme proposals did not gain traction. The meeting, held digitally, marks a continuation of Enhedslisten’s current political course regarding the Middle East, where the party seeks a balanced and just solution for all parties involved in the conflict.
