New Zealand must speak out for justice at the Security Council
Palestine has joined the International Criminal Court and provided it with comprehensive evidence of the crimes committed by Israel against the people of Palestine. Israel is striving to erase Palestinian history with actions aimed atturning Jerusalem into an exclusively Jewish city. With the present round of Israeli Al-Aqsa Mosque violations, the worst since 1969 according to the head of the Heritage and Manuscripts Department of the Al-Aqsa Mosque Compound, the PLO Executive Committee intends to refer Israeli attacks against Jerusalem and its Holy Sites to the Security Council. The right of return of Palestinian refugees is enshrined in UN Resolutions; this September's thirty-third anniversary of the Sabra and Shatila massacre is a fitting time to remind our leaders of the duty to raise New Zealand's voice at the Security Council on their behalf.
