Massacre In Jerusalem

EDM number 1398 in 1989-90, proposed by George Galloway on 15/10/1990.

That this House, deeply shocked by the massacre of more than 20 unarmed Palestinian demonstrators on the Temple Mount, Jerusalem, conscious that a great many other Palestinians were wounded and maimed in the incident, aware that in the more than 1,000 days of the Intifada the Israeli Defence Forces have killed almost 1,000 Palestinians, mainly children and young teenagers and have wounded and maimed tens of thousands, again mainly children and young people, unreservedly condemns the killings in Jerusalem; deplores the continuing 'iron fist' policy of the Israeli occupiers; demands the release of the Palestinian leaders, including Feisal Husseini, held in prison after the massacre; and demands the United Nations Security Council convene itself as the International Peace Conference awaited so long and start the process of Israeli withdrawal from the territories acquired by force, the foundation of a Palestinian state alongside Israel, and thus demobilise this the greatest threat to peace and stability in the Middle East.

This motion has been signed by a total of 34 MPs, 1 of these signatures have been withdrawn.
