Motion text

That this House condemns the annual Israeli flag march through Palestinian neighbourhoods of occupied East Jerusalem marked by widespread racist chants, including death to Arabs and we will burn your village; further condemns the frequent attacks on Palestinian residents of East Jerusalem by marchers, and attacks on journalists, including this year a BBC crew filming the event; notes with deep concern the endorsement and participation in the march of members of successive Israeli Governments; further notes the failure of the Israeli Government to issue its own condemnation of these events and to take action to prevent them, and believes this failure is indicative of broader discrimination against Palestinians in government policy which Amnesty International, Human Rights Watch, and the UN Special Rapporteur for human rights in the occupied Palestinian territory have all concluded to be the crime of apartheid against the Palestinian people.
