The Nobel peace prize laureate Mairead Maguire has called on the United Nations to suspend or to revoke Israel"s membership in the international organization for ignoring a series of UN resolutions over the years.

Maguire, addressing a joint press conference in Ramallah on Thursday with Dr. Mustafa Al-Barghouthi leader of the national initiative party, asked the world community to pressure Israel to end its siege of the Gaza Strip and to start serious negotiators with the Palestinians.

She said that the Gaza Strip inhabitants need food and not Israeli shelling that is being financed by the US.

The peace activist described what is going on in Gaza as "very serious", affirming that the US, Europe and the UN should not remain silent towards Israeli practices against the Strip. She accused those parties of being accomplices to the current destruction of Gaza.

Maguire won the 1976 peace prize for her work with Catholics and Protestants in Northern Ireland. She is visiting the Palestinian territories to protest Israel"s blockade of the Gaza Strip. In October this year she arrived on a boat that sailed into the Gaza Strip carrying international protesters who wanted to bring attention to Israel"s blockade of the Strip.
