Israel’s aggression against Palestine, which is increasingly violent at this time, has resulted in an inhumane number of casualties and destroyed the foundations of Palestinian life,” said Koster.
Denpasar, SINARTIMUR.com – The attitude of the Chairman of the DPD PDI Perjuangan Bali, DR Ir I Wayan Koster, MM, towards Israel has not changed. The world still remembers Koster’s firm stance with Ganjar Pranowo (when he was Governor of Central Java) when they rejected the Israeli National Team’s participation in the 2023 U-20 World Cup.
The Bali Governor’s firm stance for the 2018-2023 period was again demonstrated when Israeli troops increasingly intensified their bombardment of Palestine, killing innocent civilians. Koster condemned Israel’s increasingly indiscriminate aggression against Palestine
Koster’s rejection of Israel’s military aggression is not without reason. There are four reasons that Koster uses as a basis for rejecting Israel’s aggressive military attitude towards Hamas and Palestinian society as a whole.
“The reason for the rejection, First, is that in fact independence is the right of all nations and therefore, colonialism in the world must be abolished, because it is not in accordance with humanity and justice,” said Koster, Friday (10/11/2023) coinciding with Heroes’ Day.
Second, said Koster, the Israeli Government’s political policy towards Palestine is not in accordance with the Indonesian Government’s policy, and there are no diplomatic relations between the Indonesian Government and the Israeli Government.
Koster again revealed the reason for his rejection of the Israeli U-20 National Team in the third reason for rejection which read, “The presence of the Israeli Team in the U20 world championship has the potential to disrupt national stability and security.”
In the fourth point, Koster stated that it had the potential to cause security problems in Bali, which would definitely disrupt the acceleration of tourism recovery, after the slump during the Covid-19 pandemic.
“Hard work to restore the decline in Bali tourism after the Covid-19 pandemic will be in vain, which will have a negative impact on Bali’s economy,” stressed the figure from Sembiran, Tejakula District, Buleleng Regency.
This strong candidate for Governor of Bali in 2024 stated that Israel’s policy of continuing to raid and attack the Palestinian territory and people is a policy that is not in accordance with human values. “Israel’s policy of continuing to attack the Palestinian territory and people is a policy that is not in accordance with human values,” criticized Koster.
“Israel’s aggression against Palestine, which is increasingly violent at this time, has resulted in an inhumane number of casualties and destroyed the foundations of Palestinian life,” said Koster, condemning Israel’s attitude.
