Media Statement: ICV objects to visit by Israeli PM and calls for Australia to recognise Palestine


The policies of the Israeli government led by PM Benjamin Netanyahu have caused tremendous hardship and suffering for the Palestinian people and have effectively extinguished hopes for a viable two state solution. The recent UN Security Council resolution condemned Israel’s settlement building as a “flagrant violation” of international law and a major obstacle to a lasting peace.

It is thus very disappointing that the Australian Government has seen fit to invite the person ultimately responsible for Israel’s flagrant violations of international law.
