Motion text

That this House recognises the need to provide a framework for a reconciliation process as an integral part of any future peace agreements between Israel and Palestine; believes that reconciliation is a necessary condition for ensuring a lasting peace in the Middle East; applauds the work of the charity Parents Circle-Families Forum (PCFF) to make an emotional breakthrough; notes that the PCFF is made up of over 600 families, half Israeli and half Palestinian, who have all lost an immediate family member in the conflict; and supports the message of the Forum that if Palestinians and Israelis who have paid the highest price of a conflict can sit together and look for a way to peace, then surely others can.
