Israel's Treatment Of Non-Jewish Refugees

EDM number 345 in 2015-16, proposed by Tommy Sheppard on 20/07/2015.
Categorised under the topics of Africa, Asylum and Middle East.

That this House condemns the abysmally low proportion of non-Jewish, African asylum seekers who have been granted refugee status in Israel; notes with concern that less than one per cent of applications by African refugees are successful; further notes that Israel's closest neighbours, Jordan and Lebanon, have each accepted millions of refugees fleeing Syria; commends the work of Hotline for Refugees and Migrants Israel, and the Assaf Aid Organization for Refugees and Asylum Seekers in Israel in promoting African refugee rights in Israel; and calls on the Government to demand immediate action from the Israeli government to behave in line with international legal norms and obligations.

This motion has been signed by a total of 42 MPs.
