IPSC determined to help push Occupied Territories Bill forward

The Ireland-Palestine Solidarity Campaign condemns the failure of the negotiating parties to include an explicit reference to the Occupied Territories Bill in the Programme for Government. The IPSC will, nevertheless, continue to hold the government accountable to the Programme for Government’s clearly stated commitment that Ireland will be adhering to its “obligations under international law” with regard to Israel’s illegal settlements in Palestine. IPSC members are aggrieved  that the Occupied Territories Bill was discarded from the Programme for Government at the last minute, seemingly to mollify the Fine Gael leadership who, for political reasons, continue attempts to block this legislation. … Continue reading

Sunset for international law? Israel’s annexation plan and the re-partition of Palestine

From the first of July the government of Israel is planning to bring forth legislation to unilaterally annex Israel’s illegal settlements and the Jordan Valley region of the Palestinian West Bank. This constitutes an area of roughly 30% of the West Bank, and will be in addition to Israel’s already illegal annexations of Palestinian East Jerusalem and the Syrian Golan Heights. This is an attempt to re-partition Palestine, and represents the latest phase in the ongoing Nakba endured by the Palestinian people. The annexation plan eliminates whatever diminished prospect still exists of achieving a viable sovereign independent state. In its … Continue reading
