UN backs Palestinian ‘armed struggle’

As war criminal Sharon and his backers in Washington accuse Palestinian freedom fighters of ‘terrorism’, a resolution endorsing "the legitimate right of the Palestinian people to resist Israeli occupation" was passed on 17 April in Geneva by the UN Human Rights Commission. The resolution passed by 40 countries of the 53-member commission, supports the use of "all available means, including armed struggle" to establish a Palestinian state. 

The resolution divided the European Union which normally votes as a bloc. Six of the nine EU members on the Commission--Austria, Belgium, France, Portugal, Spain and Sweden--approved the resolution. 

Germany and Britain opposed it while Italy abstained. Canada, the Czech Republic and Northern Ireland also opposed the resolution. The U.S. lost its seat on the commission last year and could not vote. A European official, speaking in Washington on condition of anonymity, said "armed struggle" is different from "terrorism." "The resolution," the official said, "endorses armed struggle as a legitimate means to obtain freedom and statehood for Palestine. There is a difference between terrorism and armed struggle." 

While approving the resolution, Austria's delegation issued a statement objecting to certain phrases in the resolution as passed, including condemnation of the Israeli occupation as "an offence against humanity." The resolution was sponsored by Arab nations and introduced by Pakistani Ambassador Munir Akram.
