Unfortunately in Europe those self-proclaimed ‘pro-Palestinian’ organisations do not share the same approach as JCall, regarding the simultaneous recognition of both the legitimate rights of Israeli Jews and the legitimate rights of the Palestinian Arab people. The principle of equal rights is asserted by the Palestinian organisations that belong to the Forum of NGOs for Peace, and is supported by the United States by the American Task Force on Palestine. The principle of ‘two states for two peoples’ is not only an answer to what is best for Israelis, but also – and just as importantly – to what is best for Palestinians. We believe that those amongst the European pro-Palestinian activists who persist in denying national rights to Israelis endanger the interests of both sides and the cause of peace.
