Yesterday, July 6th 2011, ICAHD founder and Co-Director, Prof. Jeff Halper briefed the UK Minister of State for International Development, Rt. Hon. Alan Duncan, now visiting the Occupied Palestinian Territories. The brief revolved around civil society mobilization around the United Nations General Assembly decision on Palestine’s admission into membership, and the alarmingly growing trend of house demolitions since the beginning of 2011. Following the meeting, the Minister was quoted saying: “Our long term goal is a sovereign and viable Palestinian state […] and a fair settlement for refugees.”
