STATUS OF JERUSALEM

That this House believes that Jerusalem is a shared city, sacred to Jews, Muslims and Christians; notes with alarm the systematic attempts to reduce the Palestinian population of East Jerusalem and the Jerusalem periphery through evictions of Palestinian families, demolition of Palestinian homes, expansion of Israeli settlements, removal of residency rights from many Palestinian residents of Jerusalem and refusal of access to Jerusalem and its holy sites to most Muslim and Christian Palestinians from the West Bank, resulting in the gradual destruction of Palestinian life and culture; supports the Government's position of not recognising Israel's unilateral annexation of East Jerusalem, of regarding Israeli settlements in East Jerusalem as contrary to international law and of refusing to recognise Jerusalem as the capital of Israel until it becomes the shared capital of both nations; and calls on the Government to take steps to ensure that the Israeli authorities respect the rights of Palestinians as well as Israeli citizens and the freedom of worship of all faiths in Jerusalem.

Amendment 2436A1 - STATUS OF JERUSALEM

leave out from `House' to end and add `notes that Christians, Muslims and Jews are all free to worship according to their own beliefs in Jerusalem; further notes that Israel handed over control of all Muslim holy sites to the Islamic Waqf in 1967; draws attention to the fact that prior to 1967 Jews were not free to worship at the Western Wall in Jerusalem; supports the Israeli government's security decisions and steps to ensure that all faiths can gain access to holy sites, including by building special gates in the Security Barrier; and further notes the offer by the Israeli government to give Palestinians living in Jerusalem the choice of whether to become full Israeli citizens or whether to remain Israeli residents with Palestinian Authority citizenship.'.
