Yesterday (08.11.2010), a group of British parliamentarians and journalists on a tour of Palestine met with a delegation of Islamic deputies at their offices in Ramallah. The British visit aimed to explore the latest developments in Palestine.

The delegation of deputies was led by the head of the Palestinian Legislative Council, Dr Aziz Dweik and was made up of of several representatives including the Secretary General of the Legislative Council, Dr Mahmoud al-Ramahi, the former minister of finance, Dr Omar Abdul Razzak, Professor Muna Mansour and Dr Nasser Abdel Jawad.


The British delegation included a number of journalists, parliamentarians and members of the British Labour Party.

The two groups discussed the most recent developments related to the Palestinian issue including attacks being carried out by the Israeli occupation at all levels; from its Judaisation efforts and settlement activities, to criminal practices including killings, demolitions, siege and daily arrests.

The deputies also briefed the British delegation on the latest developments toward Palestinian national reconciliation stressing the necessity of reaching an agreement that would resolve the internal situation and extricate it from the deadlock and degradation it has reached. They also addressed the bitter reality faced by West Bank Palestinians as a result of the internal dispute which has given rise to the current reality in which crimes are being committed against the rights of Palestinians citizens including political arrests, prosecution and torture, which has led to the collapse of the Legislative Council and the paralysis of its work.

At the end of the meeting, the British delegation expressed their solidarity with Palestinians and their just cause shouldering responsibility for conveying Palestinian concerns, based on what they have witnessed and experienced during their visit, to European public opinion.
