Pending Demolition Of The Shawamreh Family Home In East Jerusalem

EDM number 1686 in 2008-09, proposed by Lynne Jones on 16/06/2009.
Categorised under the topic of Middle East.

That this House notes that since 1967, the Israeli authorities have demolished more than 24,000 Palestinian homes in the Occupied Territories; further notes the Israeli Supreme Court recently ruled that the home of Salim and Arabiya Shawamreh in Anata, already demolished by the Israeli authorities four times, can be demolished again; applauds the courageous resistance of the Shawamreh family; and calls on the Israeli authorities to grant the Shawamreh family a permit to build and to halt their illegal programme of demolition of Palestinian homes in line with the UN's call for Israel to freeze all pending demolition orders in East Jerusalem.

This motion has been signed by a total of 37 MPs.
