Motion text

That this House notes that Israel continues to erect what it refers to as a security wall, in breach of international law; that the wall encloses land and resources which should be under the control of the Palestinian Authority; that Israel is constructing highways on Palestinian land which Palestinians are forbidden from using; that Israeli troops are maintaining more than 600 permanent roadblocks on Palestinian territory and many other flying roadblocks and enforcing no-go areas on Palestinians in towns such as Hebron; that hundreds of Palestinians are being held without trial by Israeli authorities; that such measures are damaging to the Palestinian economy, to human rights and to human dignity, and that whilst such measures are in place it will be impossible for the Palestinian general election of 25th January 2006 to be held in a manner which is open, fair and free from outside influence; and calls upon honourable Members, the British Government and national and international bodies to seek urgently to persuade Israel to withdraw from the occupied territories so that elections which can be seen to be free and fair can be held in Palestine in January.
