'Strong statements' don’t work. To effectively support the Palestinians and end the occupation, the international community must stop treating Israel as a state above the law.
For 70 years, Greece and Palestine have been close friends and allies. Will short-term economic interests between Greece and Israel lead Greece's leaders to abandon us?
Many Palestinian lives and much political capital could have been saved over the last four years if President Obama had shown the determination to facilitate two-state solution negotiations. Now, rather than calling for the resumption of a meaningless 'peace process,' we Palestinians expect real action on the ground.
At a time of year when Christian faith and hope are renewed, we believe justice for the Palestinians is possible in 2013, if our brothers and sisters throughout the world act with us in bringing long-awaited peace to the region.
The enhancement of Palestine’s status is not an attempt to delegitimize Israel. It is designed to legitimize the State of Palestine. If the international community is serious about protecting the two-state solution, then each member country needs to make good on their word by voting with Palestine, today.
Is the government of Israel engaged in the negotiation process to reach peace, or is Israel engaged in this process to advance a public relations campaign and buy time to continue its colonial enterprise on our occupied territory?
