New Foreign Affairs Committee Report


In early 2009 the Foreign Affairs Committee, House of Commons decided to conduct an inquiry on Israel and the Occupied Palestinian Territories. They were prompted to do this primarily by the conflict in Gaza in December 2008/January 2009 (“Operation Cast Lead”), and also by the advent of new governments in Israel and the United States.

Along with others I was invited to appear before the committee and give evidence. The committee, led by Mike Gapes MP, has just published its findings in a Report called “Global Security: Israel and the Occupied Palestinian Territories”. It’s a fascinating document and I invite you to read it by clicking on the following link.
