On 11th of November 2015, EIPA’s team had the privilege to meet MK Hilik Bar, Deputy Speaker of the Knesset and Secretary General of the Israel Labour Party (Avoda).
MK Bar displayed his Peace Plan to Members of the Parliament, and to our team.
MK Bar’s Diplomatic Outline was quoted several times in resolutions coming from the socialist group in the EP. However, they never accepted to write “Two states for two people”, recognising a sovereign Jewish State and a sovereign Palestinian State. MK Bar repeadly said yesterday that the only solution was two states for two people, and that History taught us the Jews need a state.
We presented to MK Bar to MK Bar our ongoing campaign on the conditionality of EU Aid toward the PA. EIPA is asking the EU to pressure the PA to stop incitement to violence.
The Congress already cut US Aid taking Abbas and other Palestinian leaders to task for “incitement” of violence against Jewish Israelis.
As a cross party organisation, it is important to meet representatives of Israel’s second largest party, as we work with MEPS from across the political board.
