Dr. Saeb Erekat on the Irish Senate’ approval of a Bill Banning Israeli Settlement Products

2018-07-11

On behalf of the Palestinian people and the Palestinian leadership, I extend our sincere appreciation to the Irish Seanad for standing tall for the principle of justice by approving this historic motion banning trade with the illegal Israeli colonial-settlements in Occupied Palestine. This courageous step builds on the historic ties between Ireland and Palestine, as well as it shows the way forward for the rest of the European Union.

Aid cuts show Australia's true attitude to the Palestinian cause Saeb Erekat

While some people were dismayed by the latest decision by the Australian government to cease its financial contributions to the Palestinian government, we weren’t. It was not a complete surprise following Australia’s alignment with the current US administration during the latest United Nations vote, whereby Australia and the US voted against the Palestinian right of self-determination, an international commission of inquiry following the killings of over 100 civilians,

Statement by PLO Secretary General Dr. Saeb Erekat on the Trump Administration’ withdrawal from the UN Human Rights Council

2018-06-21

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continues its efforts to promote international anarchy by withdrawing from the UN Human Rights Council, after having withdrawn from UNESCO and the Paris Agreement, among others.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.

Dr. Saeb Erekat on Israel's Plan to Commit a War Crime Against the Palestinian Bedouin Community of Khan al-Ahmar...

2018-05-29

Last Thursday, Israel's Supreme Court approved the demolition and forcible transfer of the entire community of Khan al-Ahmar Abu al-Helu, a home to 35 Palestinian families with a total population of 180 people, for the expansion of more Israeli colonial settlements on lands belonging to the State of Palestine in the eastern Jerusalem governorate.
