The issue of justice for Palestine will not be far from the minds of many voters going to the polls today.
Before heading to the ballot box, you will have been able to check your candidates’ views on Palestine thanks to an extensive survey carried out over the last three months by Palestine Solidarity Campaign (PSC).
In the biggest poll of Parliamentary candidates conducted by a Palestinian rights organisation, we have gathered the views of more than 1,000 candidates on a series of questions relating to Palestinian human rights.
In England, Scotland and Wales, candidates have given their opinions on issues ranging from whether Israel should immediately lift its blockade of Gaza to whether the next UK government should impose an arms embargo on Israel until it abides by international law.
Thanks so much for all your efforts writing to parliamentary candidates and sending us the information. All their replies can be found on PSC’s website, providing voters with an important resource as they go to vote.
The reality of Israeli ‘justice’
On Wednesday 6 May, Ayelet Shaked was appointed as the new Israeli ‘Justice’ Minister, representing the far right ‘Jewish Home’ party. Last summer, Shaked effectively called for the genocide of Palestinians. Now she will be in the ministerial cabinet, and head the Israeli ministerial committee for legislation.
Meanwhile, ethnic cleansing of Palestinians is continuing apace. Israel’s supreme court has agreed that the Bedouin village of Umm Al Hiran, situated within Israel, will be demolished and the residents displaced to make way for a Jewish settlement.
In the occupied Palestinian territory, Palestinian residents face a similar future. Residents of Susya were refused a temporary decree to prevent demolitions in the village until a final decision is made by the high court in their case. The judge who made the decision is an illegal settler.

Keffiyehs ‘made in Palestine’
In 1961, Yasser Hirbawi started a keffiyeh factory in the West Bank town of Hebron. But in 2000 he was forced to close the factory as China and India flooded the global market with cheap keffiyehs. Then, in a show of Palestinian resistance, the factory made a comeback ten years ago, focusing on quality and authenticity. Each keffiyeh now proudly bears the label: ‘Made in Palestine’.
These are the keffiyehs sold by Palestine Solidarity Campaign, straight from Hirbawi’s Hebron factory, now run by his two sons, and the last keffiyeh factory left in Palestine.
