Encourage your MP to sign this EDM calling on the UK government to make clear that Israeli annexation of occupied territory should have consequences

Posted by Caabu on 03 May 2019

An Early Day Motion (EDM) has been tabled on 30 April 2019 on the illegal annexation of Occupied Palestinian and Syrian territories by Israel. The EDM's primary sponsor was Andy Slaughter MP (Labour) and co-sponsored by Sir Nicholas Soames MP (Conservative), Lisa Nandy MP (Labour), Alistair Carmichael MP (Liberal Democrat), Richard Burden MP (Labour) and Tommy Sheppard MP (SNP). The EDM states:

"That this House condemns any annexation by the State of Israel of any part of the territories occupied in 1967; notes it has already illegally annexed East Jerusalem and the Golan Heights; further notes that Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu threatened during Israeli elections to annex part of or all of the West Bank; recalls that international law prohibits the acquisition of territory by force; believes that any such move threatens any solution to the Israel-Palestine conflict; and calls on the Government to make clear that any such Israeli annexation would entail significant consequences for UK-Israeli relations."

Caabu encourages its supporters and friends to contact their Members of Parliament, making them aware of this EDM and encouraging them to sign. Details of how to find your MP can be found here.
