London, 29 March 2017
Two pro-Israeli activists were removed from the House of Lords last night for breaking the regulations of the parliament by carrying out an unauthorised recording.
This happened in a meeting on Palestinians Return Centre’s Balfour Apology Campaign hosted by Baroness Jenny Tonge and Lord Norman Warner.
The meeting was titled, "Balfour Declaration, No Marking No, Celebration, It is an Apology"
Activist/Journalist Jerry Lewis and Jonathan Hoffman were removed by police upon a request by Lord Warner. Their removal came after their refusal to abide by the rules and regulations of the House and the many calls made to them by Lord Warner.
Lewis who was not invited to this private meeting came middle of the seminar and switched on his recording device.
He did not get the required permission from the chair nor the Black Rod office.
The Police confiscated the Parliament Press accreditation from Lewis due to his behaviour and breaking the laws of the house. See the link: https://www.parliament.uk/visiting/access/photography-filming-and-mobile-phone-use/
Jonathan Hoffman was asked to leave the meeting for his disruptive and disrespectful conduct towards the chair. He also used abusive language against the Lord and event's audience. Hoffman has a history of attending pro-Palestinian meetings in order to cause disruption.
The Centre commends the position of Lord Warner and invite all attendees to respect the rules of the House.
The Centre also thinks that pro Israeli activists are attempting to sabotage the civilised discussion and freedom of expression in the UK by constant smearing and proppoganda campaigns.
LONDON – 28 March 2017
The Palestinian Return Centre (PRC) met on Monday evening with James Cleverly MP (Conservative Party) over the situation in the occupied Palestinian territories.
The two parties discussed the pro-Israel position adopted by the British government, which PRC said gives Israel a legal cover to whitewash its crimes against the Palestinians.
PRC called on Cleverly MP and the Conservative Party to speak up for Palestinians’ infringed rights, most notably the rights to self-determination, independence, and freedom.
PRC spoke out against the apartheid regime perpetrated by the Israeli occupation against the Palestinian people, as figures in the findings of a report recently released by the United Nations Economic and Social Commission for Western Asia (ESCWA).
For his part, member of Parliament for Braintree district, Cleverly, voiced his support for a two-state solution and stressed the need to halt the Arab-Israeli conflict through peace talks.
Geneva, London – 21 March 2017
As part of its active engagement in the interactive discussions held at the 34th Regular Session of the United Nations Human Rights Council (UNHRC), the Palestinian Return Centre (PRC) spoke up against the racist practices perpetrated by the Israeli occupation against the Palestinians.
Speaking during a debate staged under Agenda Item 9, PRC delegate Sameh Habeeb referred to the findings of a recent report issued by the United Nations Economic and Social Commission for Western Asia (ESCWA) accusing Israel of imposing an apartheid regime on the Palestinians. The report was later pulled out following pressure by the US-Israel lobby.
PRC speaker pointed out that 300,000 Palestinians living in East Jerusalem have been shorn of their right to education, health care, employment, residency, and construction permits.
Mr. Habeeb added that Palestinians living in East Jerusalem have been subjected to forced deportation, banishment, and arbitrary home demolitions, policies which he said all emanate from Israeli intents to strike a demographic balance in favor of Jewish settlers.
PRC orator further warned of Israel’s underway attempts to prevent Palestinian refugees from returning to their homeland by all means possible and under racist pretexts including the alleged fact that Palestinians represent “a demographic threat” to the self-proclaimed Jewish State.
PRC’s statement is the fifth of its kind delivered during the 34th Session of the United Nations Human Rights Council (UNHRC) held in the Palais des Nations in Geneva from 27 February to 24 March 2017 to address the 47-member Council on human rights matters of national and international concern.
Geneva – London, March 21st 2017
The Palestinian Return Centre (PRC) delivered two oral statements during the 34th Session of the Human Rights Council in Geneva under Agenda Item 7.
The first oral intervention was during the Interactive dialogue with Michael Lynk Special Rapporteur on the situation of human rights in the Palestinian territories occupied since 1967. PRC’s statement focused on the Israeli attacks against Palestinian Human Rights Defenders (HRD). PRC highlighted the coordinated campaign against HRDs, which attempts to delegitimize their human rights advocacy.
The second oral intervention was delivered during the General Debate on Human rights situation in Palestine and other occupied Arab territories. PRC’s representative “Sameh Habeeb” stressed that inside the occupied territories Palestinian refugees continue to suffer from Israel’s illegal military occupation, colonial policies and apartheid regime. This is entrenching the prolonged exile of Palestine refugees, and their descendants, forcibly displaced after 1947 and intentionally denied the right to return as stated in UN resolution 194.
LONDON- 20 March 2017
The Palestinian Return Centre (PRC) hailed the Executive Secretary of the United Nations Economic and Social Commission for Western Asia (ESCWA), Dr. Rima Khalaf, for firmly rebuffing to succumb to pressure to rescind a recent report accusing Israel of apartheid.
A letter by PRC acclaimed the “brave” position adopted by Dr. Khalaf, dubbing it a “badge of honor” earned by the world’s human rights advocates.
PRC letter condemned the apathy maintained by the international community vis-à-vis the Palestinian-Israeli conflict.
PRC believes Khalaf’s resignation is an alarm bell sounded at a time when several parties have been on Israel’s side. It is high time the world showed concern about the excruciating situation endured by the Palestinians under the Israeli occupation.
A resignation letter was submitted by ESCWA Executive Secretary Rima Khalaf in response to the formal request by the UN Secretary-General to withdraw a report that asserts Israel is committing Apartheid against the Palestinians.
“I am not oblivious to the vicious attacks and threats the UN and you personally were subjected to from powerful Member States as a result of the publication of the ESCWA report,” Mrs. Khalaf’s letter read verbatim. “It is only normal for criminals to pressure and attack those who advocate the cause of their victims. I cannot submit to such pressure.”
“Not by virtue of my being an international official, but simply by virtue of being a decent human being, I believe, like you, in the universal values and principles that have always been the driving force for good in human history, and on which this organization of ours, the United Nations is founded,” added Mrs. Khalaf.
“I cannot but stand by the findings of ESCWA’s report that Israel has established an apartheid regime that seeks the domination of one racial group over another,” the letter went on. “The evidence provided by this report drafted by renowned experts is overwhelming. Suffice it to say that none of those who attacked the report had a word to say about its content. I feel it my duty to shed light on the legally inadmissible and morally indefensible fact that an apartheid regime still exists in the 21st century rather than suppressing the evidence.”
LONDON – Geneva, 16 March 2017
The Palestinian Return Centre (PRC) acclaimed a report by the United Nations Economic and Social Commission for Western Asia (ESCWA) accusing Israel of apartheid.
PRC believes ESCWA report is another goal scored by the human rights institutions and a sign of the inherently illegitimate nature of the Israeli practices against the Palestinians. The report is also the natural outcome of Israel’s incessant violations against the Palestinians under a legal cover.
PRC calls for making other steps to bring such racist practices to a halt and to impeach those held accountable before international courts.
The solution to Israel’s breaches lies in implementing international law, observing the principle of non-discrimination, and upholding peoples’ rights to self-determination.
A report by ESCWA concluded that Israel is imposing an apartheid regime on the Palestinian people.
The findings of the report were released by ESCWA Executive Secretary Rima Khalaf during a press conference held at the UN House, in Beirut, when she launched the report entitled “Israeli Practices towards the Palestinian People and the Question of Apartheid.”
Khalaf noted that Israel, encouraged by the international community’s disregard for its recurrent violations of international law, has succeeded over the past decades in imposing and maintaining an apartheid regime that works on two levels; first, the political and geographic fragmentation of the Palestinian people which enfeebles their capacity for resistance and makes it almost impossible for them to change the reality on the ground; second, the oppression of all Palestinians through an array of laws, policies and practices that ensure domination by a racial group and serve to maintain the regime.
ESCWA Executive Secretary further stressed that the importance of the report is not limited to the fact that it is the first of its kind published by a United Nations body, clearly concluding that Israel is a racial State; It also provides fresh insight into the cause of the Palestinian people and into how to achieve peace.
Khalaf maintained that the report shows that there can be no solution, be it in the form of two States, or following any other regional or international approach, as long as the apartheid regime imposed by Israel on the Palestinian people as a whole has not been dismantled.
Apartheid is a crime against humanity. Not only does international law prohibit that crime, it obliges States and international bodies, and even individuals and private institutions, to take measures to combat it wherever it is committed and to punish its perpetrators.
