Israel And Palestinian Funds

EDM number 1737 in 2007-08, proposed by Tom Levitt on 10/06/2008.
Categorised under the topics of International politics and government and Middle East.

That this House notes that the Israeli government has yet again delayed the hand over of part of the tax revenues owed by them to the Palestinian Authority; further notes that these funds are used to pay more than 165,000 Palestinian workers in a situation of acute economic crisis; further notes that in withholding such funds the Israeli government is violating its commitments under international peace agreements, and is again collectively punishing hundreds of thousands of innocent civilians; therefore urges the Government to insist that the government of Israel hands over immediately the funds concerned and if Israel fails to do so within days further urges the Government to give increased opportunities to Palestinian representatives to make known their objections about Israeli actions to EU leaders; and further urges the Government to make clear to the government of Israel, that this action, together with the continued expansion of Israeli settlements in the Occupied Territories, seriously endangers Israel's chances of upgrading its ties with the European Union.

This motion has been signed by a total of 46 MPs.
