USA and Palestinians clash over plan for peace with Israel

Stores have reopened for customers and people have resumed their work after the ceasefire

"Palestinians should be able to live free from ever expanding settlements on stolen land".

The protest was timed to coincide with the 1948 Palestinian exodus in which hundreds of thousands were forcibly displaced from their homes during the 1948 and 1967 wars that resulted from the state of Israel being created.

Palestinian ambassador to the UK Dr Husam Zomlot stood on the stage next to Ahed Tamimi, the protester who became a globally known after slapping an Israeli soldier in the West Bank previous year.

A key architect of the long-awaited United States plan for Israeli-Palestinian peace lashed out at the UN's "anti-Israel bias" yesterday while urging support for the Trump administration's "vision" - but the Palestinian foreign minister dismissed the USA peace effort, saying all indications are it will be "conditions for surrender".

There was applause as Ahed Tamimi took to the stage.

"The Labour Party is united in condemning the ongoing human rights abuses by Israeli forces, including the shooting of hundreds of unarmed Palestinian demonstrators in Gaza - a lot of them refugees or families of refugees - demanding their rights", he wrote. Efforts continue in the USA and Europe to suppress free speech by falsely labelling criticism of Israel as 'anti-Semitic'.

Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn, a far-left and anti-Israel politician who has faced allegations that he himself is promoting anti-Semitism in Labour, a party that has been accused of fomenting institutional racism, offered his support to the demonstrators in a statement that he also posted on Facebook. For more than seven decades later houses are still being demolished, children are illegally detained and the people of Gaza have been under siege for 13 years.

The rally was organised by the Palestine Solidarity Campaign. We need your help to continue this work.

"Every decision the USA administration has taken since has simply confirmed its disregard for Palestinian lives, for Palestinian rights" and for the two-state solution, he said.
