AJC Transatlantic Institute welcomes a “more balanced” resolution on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict adopted by the European Parliament earlier today.
The resolution condemns Palestinian incitement and acts of terrorism committed against Israelis, as well as Israel’s settlement building in the West Bank.
The text says a two-state solution is “the only way” to end the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.
The AJC in a statement says the previous resolutions generally contained vague language which suggested both sides were equally responsible for violence.
“While we would have wished for even clearer language, we appreciate the important step Parliament has taken to end the counterproductive habit of sheltering the Palestinians from legitimate criticism,” AJC Transatlantic Institute Director Daniel Schwammenthal says in a statement.
The AJC Transatlantic Institute is the Brussels-based office of the American Jewish Committee, a global Jewish advocacy organization.
