Nick Clegg, Deputy Prime Minister and Leader of the Liberal Democrats travelled with Caabu to Palestine in November 2005. Caabu guided Mr Clegg through the West Bank, including occupied East Jerusalem, briefed him on the effects of Israel’s separation wall and ever expanding settlement programme.

Today, in a joint press conference with Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas, he condemns Israeli settlement expansion as an act of “deliberate vandalism” of prospects for peace in the region.
