SUPPORT FOR HUMAN RIGHTS ORGANISATIONS IN ISRAEL AND PALESTINE
EDM #1377
Tabled 13 April 2016
2015-16 Session
That this House supports Israeli and Palestinian human rights organisations and non-profits that have come under attack from all branches of the Israeli government; expresses deep concerns that officials in the Israeli government are collaborating with extremist right-wing and fascist organisations such as Im Tirzu in order to silence those who oppose the occupation of Palestine; believes that coordinated smear campaigns and intimidation are being pushed with the goal of shutting down Israeli and Palestinian non-governmental organisations (NGOs); unequivocally condemns the threats made against those effectively opposing the occupation and the attacks upon dissent and political freedom of speech; affirms that embracing a healthy civil society and human rights sector is a key aspect of a healthy democratic country; gives explicit support to Israeli NGOs B'Tselem, Breaking the Silence and Yesh Din, and Palestinian NGOs al-Haq and Addameer; and calls on the Government to engage more meaningfully with the Israeli and Palestinian human rights sector whilst pressuring the Israeli government to end its attacks on those carrying forward valuable, insightful and wholly legitimate human rights, peace and justice advocacy.
