AL Za’noon- Irish Senate bill is a Prelude to Siege and Isolation of Israel Colonial Settlement in Palestine

The Palestine National Council Speaker Saleem Al- Za’noon praised the Irish Senate’s vote on a bill that would punish anyone who imports or assists in importation, sale of goods or services of Israeli settlements in the occupied Palestinian territories.

 In a letter addressed to Irish Senate Speaker Dennis O’Donovan, AL Za’noon praised the brave stance expressed by the Council members in support of rights of the Palestinian people and rejection of Israeli occupation and colonization, which is contrary to international law and relevant resolutions of international legitimacy.

 Speaker AL Za’noon stressed the strength of bilateral relations between Palestine and its people with the Irish government, parliament and people. Ireland was one of the first countries in the European Union to call for the establishment of the state of Palestine and all Irish governments continued their unlimited support for the Palestinian people. AL Za’noon greatly appreciated these firm stances towards the Palestinian cause, which has a special place in the conscience of the Irish people.

 Speaker AL Za’noon expressed his thanks and appreciation to the Irish senators who resisted pressure, sent a strong message and a principled rejection of the colonial occupation policy in all its forms and shapes. The rest of world parliaments, especially the European ones, should follow the footsteps of the Irish Senate, which refuses to be a partner in crimes of occupation, siding, in deeds not in words, with the Irish people’s values in defending the rights and rejecting continuation of injustice.

 AL Za’noon stressed in his letter that this advanced and courageous step of the Irish Senate reflects the conscience of the Irish people and actual translation of their constant support and firm solidarity, considering it a prelude and practical action to besiege and isolate the colonial settlement and apartheid policy in Palestine on the road to ending the Israeli occupation and the Palestinian people gaining of freedom to establish their independent state with Jerusalem as its capital.

The PNC represents the supreme authority of the Palestinian people in all their places of residence. It sets PLO policies and plans to achieve the goals of the Palestinian people for self-determination, the establishment of an independent Palestinian state with Jerusalem as its capital and the return of refugees to their homes.After Al-Nakba (catastrophe) of 1948, the Arab Higher Committee for Palestine, headed by Haj Amin Al-Husseini, decided to call for the convening of a Palestine National Council which met in Gaza in 1October 1948, which was the first Palestinian legislative authority to be established in the Arab state of Palestine. The Council then formed an all-Palestine government headed by Hilmi Abdel Baqi, who represented Palestine in the league of Arab States.The first national conference was held inJerusalem on 28May -2June 1964. This first National Council had 422 members, declared the establishment of the PlO, which represents the leadership of the Palestinian Arab people. The most important of which is the Palestinian National Charter, the Statutes of the Organization and others, and Mr. Ahmad Al-Shukairy was elected Chairman of the PlO.
