Ashrawi applauds German's stance against illegal Israeli settlements

Oct. 22, 2018 12:17 P.M. (Updated: Oct. 22, 2018 12:37 P.M.)
RAMALLAH (Ma'an) -- Palestinian Liberation Organization (PLO) Executive Committee Member, Hanan Ashrawi, expressed her appreciation to the German government for its stance against the illegal settlement enterprise and on occupied Jerusalem and its positive voting record at the United Nations, as well as its increased financial contribution to UNRWA.

Ashrawi traveled to Berlin last week, where she gave a lecture at the Ibn Rushd Fund for Freedom of Thought entitled "Peace in Palestine - can this dream still come true?"

Following her lecture, Ashrawi was joined by Ruth Fruchtman, author and co-founder of "J dische Stimme f r gerechten Frieden in Nahost," the German chapter of The Jewish Voice for a Just Peace in the Middle East, and Housammeden Darwish, a member of the Ibn Rushd Advisory Committee.

Ashrawi also participated in a seminar organized by the BMW Foundation Herbert Quandt, the Ibn Rushd Foundation and Al-Tawila, during which she focused on the deteriorating conditions on the ground and Israel's willful destruction of the two-state solution and the prospects for peace and stability, as well as future Palestinian developments and moves in the international arena.

The discussion also focused on the latest political and regional developments.

She stressed the detrimental impact of the US administration's reckless and disastrous moves and how they have emboldened Israel to continue with its egregious violations of international law and Palestinian human rights.

Ashrawi also stressed the importance of multilateral intervention and the urgent need for a rapid and collective European effort to end the military occupation and to rescue the chances for a just peace.
