Motion text

That this House believes that the Prime Minister is being partial and selective in the principle he espoused that there should be a rules-based system where countries obey the rules; points out that while he was quick to cite that principle over the annexation of Crimea, he entirely failed to apply it on his recent visit to Israel; notes that in a speech to the Knesset he did not call for Israel to cancel its illegal annexations of Jerusalem and the Golan Heights; further notes that neither did he ask when Israel would be ending its 47-year military occupation of lands taken by force in 1967; and calls on the Prime Minister to be consistent by now calling on Israel to follow the will of the UN by relinquishing territories it seized by military might.
