Press Statement by Minister Riad Malki on Australian Reallocation of Assistance to Palestine
Wednesday, 04 July 2018 14:38


The Palestinian government takes note of Australia’s predictable position of tailing the Israeli rightwing agenda in hostility against Palestinian rights by using the social safety net provided to the families of Palestinian prisoners as pretext to reallocate its aid to Palestine. This position coming from the current Australian government is unfortunately not surprising, as it has consistently and shamelessly failed to meet its obligations under international law in relation to Palestinian rights and Israel’s systematic violations and abuse of international law. It also consistently opposes the application of international law in relation to Palestinian rights.

June 2018 Incitement Report
Monday, 02 July 2018 13:49

PLO Executive Committee Member Dr. Hanan Ashrawi:

“The real incitement stems from Israel’s military occupation of Palestine and its enslavement of an entire nation. The Israeli hardline extremist government led by Benjamin Netanyahu is responsible for generating a culture of hate and racism in Israel, inciting violence and feeding extremism. Updated monthly, this report includes samples of recent derogatory and inflammatory comments and incitement by Israeli government officials and leaders specifically meant to distort reality and mislead public opinion.”

Statement of Dr. Saeb Erekat on the Trump Administration's Withdrawal from the UN Human Rights Council
Thursday, 21 June 2018 16:32

The Trump Administration continues its efforts to promote international anarchy by withdrawing from the UN Human Rights Council, after having withdrawn from UNESCO and the Paris Agreement, among others. Their choice has been to side with the Israel's colonization of Palestine, rather than the rule of international law and UN resolutions.
Attempts by the Trump Administration to normalize the illegal Israeli colonial-settlement expansion and its other systematic violations of Palestinian national and human rights, the imposition of an Apartheid regime in Palestine, as well as presenting Israeli crimes against civilians as “self-defense”, have failed and therefore they have decided to withdraw from the Human Rights Council.
We value the position of majority of the international community that have rejected US attempts to normalize the Israeli occupation by considering Jerusalem as Israel’s capital, by rejecting the condemnation of Israeli settlements, by withdrawing support to the two-state solution and by even taking out the word "occupation" from their political dictionary in reference to the legal status of Palestine.
The Palestinian leadership will continue to work with the international community and organizations, including the International Criminal Court, the International Court of Justice and the Human Rights Council’s facts finding mission on the crimes against Palestinians civilians in Gaza, despite the threats and tactics of intimidation and extortion by the Trump Administration.
