23/01/2024 | 20:18:50 (Undelivered speech, Rules of Procedure Art. 31.2) Mr President, dear colleagues, I’d like to thank Mr Fassino for his balanced rapport. To those who accuse Israel of a lack of proportionality, I would like to remind that Hamas's main goal is that Israel must be eradicated as a state. In Hamas's doctrine, the Muqawwama doctrine, it is stated that the Jews can never exist as a people with their own country. After the barbaric attack on October 7, one of the Hamas leaders, Razi Hamed, said that... 12/10/2023 | 17:52:37 Mr President, dear colleagues, Imagine that you and your family are forced to flee your country in a rush, barely managing to pack a few belongings into a plastic bag before leaving your home behind. Because you hear the echoes of artillery and see the drones with deadly loads. Because you fear, because you recall the haunting memories of soldiers taking lives and torturing innocent civilians during the autumn of 2020. Consider the agony of hunger, the desperation of not having essential... 11/10/2023 | 20:02:16 (Undelivered speech, Rules of Procedure Art. 31.2) The images from the terrorist organization Hamas committing bestial murders of Israeli civilians, indiscriminately slaughtering women and children, and desecrating the dead have shaken and deeply disturbed all decent people worldwide.

It read: ”We swear. We will take part in the Olympic games in a spirit of chivalry, for the honour of our country and for the glory of the sport.” This oath actually explains everything about why Russian and Belarusian athletes shouldn’t be allowed to compete in the Olympic games, not even under a neutral flag... 22/06/2023 | 19:44:28 (Undelivered speech, Rules of Procedure Art. 31.2)   Mister President, I’d like to thank Mr Paul GAVAN for his excellent work. The humanitarian crisis in Nagorno-Karabakh is escalating. Unfortunately, the government of Azerbaijan has shown disregard for the pleas coming from institutions such as the European Parliament, the Secretary General of the Council of Europe, the Commissioner of Human Rights, as well as the orders issued by the European Court of Human Rights and the International...
