Seventeen European Parliament members from all across the political spectrum are opposing their leftist colleagues’ initiative, which would invite family members of convicted terrorists to the Parliament building.
In a letter to the European Parliament President Antonio Tajani, the signatories wrote, “We are utterly appalled with the understanding that our colleagues from the Delegation for Relations with Palestine (DPAL), under the pretext of discussing ‘the situation of the Palestinian prisoners in Israeli jails after the hunger-strike,’ are in fact offering a public platform to relatives of convicted terrorists.”
“We, Members of the European Parliament, are seriously concerned with the message this forum sends to our constituencies amidst such turbulent times in Europe.
“Given that the Israeli-Palestinian conflict involves a wide range of issues, we encourage our colleagues, who choose to show their support for the Palestinian self-determination, to engage with Palestinian actors pursuing peace, and not with convicted terrorists.”
