On Sun, 27 July 2014,The Hon. Shaoquett Moselmane MLC had the honour, as a member of the NSW Parliament and as Chair of the Arabic friends of Labor, to present The Hon Bob Carr with a certificate of recognition for his support for Justice for Palestine.

Middle East peace process draft resolution

 Deploring the tragic conflict in Gaza, Conference supports an end to rocket attacks by Hamas and an end to Israeli incursions, which have led to the deaths of innocent civilians.

 ALP Conference applauds the last Labor government for its commitment to a two-state solution in the Middle East and specifically:

          voting to enhance Palestinian status in the General Assembly;

         restating the West Bank, including East Jerusalem, is occupied territory;

         opposing Israeli settlements on occupied Palestinian land; and

         joining the world community in branding settlements illegal under international law.

 NSW Labor recognises a Middle East peace will only be won with the establishment of a Palestinian state.

 The state of Palestine should be based on 1967 borders with agreed land swaps and with security guarantees for itself and Israel.

 NSW Labor welcomes the decision of the Palestinian Authority to commit to a demilitarised Palestine with the presence of international peacekeepers, including US forces.

 If, however, there is no progress to a two state solution, and Israel continues to build and expand settlements, a future Labor Government will consult likeminded nations towards recognition of the Palestinian state.

Hon. Shaoquett Moselmane MLC and  The Honourable Bob Carr
