Ex-Dutch Premier Leaves His Party Over Its Lack Of Support For Palestine

Dries van Agt announces his resignation from Christian Democratic Appeal.

Former Dutch Prime Minister Dries van Agt has resigned from his party over its lack of support for Palestinians, local media reported Monday.
In a statement, Van Agt announced his resignation from the Christian Democratic Appeal (CDA) party for ignoring the "immense suffering inflicted on the Palestinian people" by Israel, according to the Amsterdam-based NL Times.
He said in the written statement that the CDA's vote against various proposals regarding aid to the Palestinian people, especially during the Israeli bombardment of the Gaza Strip in May, was an important factor in his decision to leave the party.
The 90-year-old, who was a member of the CDA and forerunner of its predecessor KVP for over 50 years, said he no longer felt at home with the party.
Van Agt served as justice minister in the Netherlands from 1971-1977 and also as deputy prime minister.
He became head of the CDA in 1976 and prime minister the following year. He served as prime minister until 1982 and later focused his work on the Palestinian cause after retiring from active politics.
In 2016, he described then-Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu as a "war criminal" and said he should be prosecuted. -
