Palestine yesterday gained membership of the Human Rights Committee of the Arab League.

The State of Palestine will be represented by Legal Adviser Majdi Hardan from the Ministry of Justice.

In accordance with the membership, Palestine will be required to report on human rights situations; in particular violations of human rights by the Israeli occupation authorities.

The elected members of the committee will begin serving for a period of four years from today after received nine votes in favor of its inclusion in the committee.

The Arab League is a regional multi-national organization of Arabic-speaking countries in Africa and the Middle East. Its mission is to promote trade and economic growth as well as sovereignty and political stability in the region.

Our Vision For Liberation: Engaged Palestinian Leaders & Intellectuals Speak Out


  1. This is excellent -but meetings have to be specific with excellent written & visual profile of young Palestine children shot or jailed by Israel. This is a major human rights violation by Israel & they need to be made accountable to this. A photo of each child shot & their age & name, the location, dates, specific circumstances, extent of injury or loss of life. Make this progressive & dated in a concise form as used by a prosecuting lawyer in court. THIS WRITTEN WAR ON ISRAEL MUST BE ASSOCIATED WITH CALM & PEACE IN GAZA SO THAT THIS VIOLATION OF HUMAN RIGHTS CAN BE THE ABSOLUTE TOTAL POINT OF FOCUS BEYOND REASONABLE DOUBT- ISRAEL IS IN VIOLATION OF HUMAN RIGHTS. Palestine EMPOWERMENT-STRONG

    • An excellent move! I would hope it goes back over say the last twenty years if not earlier. Perhaps when this is published internationally, it may make the Israeli government more aware of the injustice of its policies. I am aware that their policy is to ‘get rid’ of all non-jews, but surely has it not occured to them that we are all humans and we achieve good results by working together.

      However, there seems to be an increasing number of governments that do not subscribe to this view!
