Sinn Féin‘s party manifesto is based on opposition to US Militarism policies. Sinn Féin is one of the few EU movements that has maintained the principles of the traditional left. The anti-militarism and extremist nationalism principles are preserved in Sinn Féin‘s ideological Cyber.
The Multitude of US Violations
Numerous cases of overt and covert violations of international law by US governments have made the country the flagship of international law violations. The current international order guarantees the observance of the minimum rights and regulations enshrined in the Charter of the United Nations following the founding of the United Nations. International law is a set of rules generally accepted by states and nations. The contemporary world will not be able to experience the naturalist theories of Pufendorf and Hobbes. The notion of a world without international law evokes disorder, chaos and greed that do not fit into the 21st-century human mind.
Sinn Féin Senator Paul Gavan believes that “the US military airstrike was completely illegal and incredibly reckless. This stupid and unlawful use of military force to murder Iranian and Iraqi military officials will have a major destabilising effect on the situation in the Middle East, and the US knows this. He further added that “the Irish government must immediately join the global condemnation of this illegal and reckless US action”. “As the US government announces that it is sending more troops to Iraq and tensions continue to rise, the Irish government need to urgently put an end to the use of Shannon Airport by the US military”, Gavan said.
The madness of violating UN resolutions, violating the most important international agreements and treaties, and moving toward inciting war, hatred and anti-peace in different parts of the world are warning signs that the world should not just watch. Today, international treaties are concluded to establish order and balance, and international organisations have been formed to strengthen and synergise the common thought of governments, establishing international rules and promoting cooperation instead of confrontation. For this reason, Article 3-1 of the UN Charter emphasises the need for international cooperation in resolving global issues of an economic, social, cultural or humanitarian nature. Chapter IX, particularly in Article 55 (b), calls for international cooperation on various topics to solve global economic, social and health problems.
Despite the existence of all the laws and regulations of the international system, the preparation and compilation of which has taken many years. Regardless of national interests, the degree of economic, military, and demographic power, Washington has violated many of these international treaties and institutions by pursuing its policies to impose its demands and interests and promote unilateralism. For example, the previous US president withdrew an average of four international treaties from his presidency each year, an unprecedented record. With the successive withdrawal of international institutions and treaties, the direct ordering of targeted assassinations, human rights violations, etc., Donald Trump has unequivocally targeted the rules and regulations of the world to fire his lawlessness. Trump’s addiction to corruption sounded the alarm for the peace and security of the international community.
Sinn Féin Strongly Supports Palestine
State Department spokesman and Member of Parliament for the Republic of Ireland Sean Crowe said recognition of a Palestinian state should be a priority for the Irish government. He added that the lower house of parliament unanimously approved the Sinn Féin plan to recognise the state of Palestine, which was part of the previous government’s plan but was never implemented. Speaking on the anniversary of the expulsion of hundreds of thousands of Palestinians from their land, he added: “I want to use this opportunity to commemorate the day of misery, an important moment in the history of the Palestinian people, when hundreds of thousands were forced to flee without return.” Sean Crowe added: “The recognition of Palestine by an Irish government contains a strong message of solidarity and the right path forward.” This is also justified given that the Israeli government has pursued a policy of more significant encroachment on Palestinian lands and annexation of the West Bank.
Belfast City Council, the capital of Northern Ireland, has approved a plan to expel the Israeli ambassador. Accordingly, the council called for the expulsion of the Israeli ambassador due to Israeli crimes and human rights violations. The council’s plan emphasises that the Israeli military, in its war against the Palestinians, carried out ethnic cleansing in the Gaza Strip. Israel’s actions are like an apartheid regime. Belfast City Council also called the development of Israeli settlements in the West Bank a clear violation of international law. The council called for an end to Tel Aviv’s inhumane acts against the Palestinian people.
In the Republic of Ireland, thousands of anti-Israel activists rallied in front of the Foreign Office in Dublin, demanding the expulsion of the regime’s ambassador. Sinn Fein, which has an anti-Israeli position, has issued statements condemning the continuing displacement of Palestinian communities in East Jerusalem and the West Bank, stressing that Israel has indeed annexed the lands of the West Bank where it has established settlements.
The United States is the biggest violator of human rights and world peace. Statistics show that the US government has produced 44 viruses in the world against humanity, which is separate from the violent war crimes they have committed against humanity. Undoubtedly, the international community should not watch the criminal actions of the United States, especially since the international community has no will to stand up to its unilateralism. If the US government’s illegal and unconventional acts are not stopped, the machine will drive its lawlessness and breach the covenant even faster. Punishing a government that violates UN rules and preventing systematic human rights abuses in the United States under the responsibility of protection is the least it should do to the US government in a global consensus.
