NATFHE 2001 conference motion condemns Israel’s actions 

This resolution was passed by the 2001 Conference 

Conference notes with deep concern that the election of Ariel Sharon as Israel’s Prime Minister on 6h February 2001 has led to further escalation of the conflict in occupied Palestine. This includes a threat of all out war by an Israeli Minister and the use of F16 bombers. 

Conference calls for a withdrawal of Israeli troops from occupied Palestine, dismantling of settlements which are illegal under international law and compliance with UN Resolution (242 and 338); and

welcomes the formation of the campaign for Palestinian rights; agrees to circulate information about its activities and support demonstrations on these issues.
