If not now, when? US Veto of the UN Security Council Draft Resolution condemning Israeli Settlements (Joint Letter to President Obama - 24Feb2011)

JOINT LETTER
(Sent by fax)
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
REF.: 83/2011
DATE: 24 FEBRUARY 2011

Dear President Obama,

As Palestinian human rights organisations committed to the protection and promotion of international human rights in the Occupied Palestinian Territory (OPT), we express our profound dismay at the US decision to veto the draft UN Security Council resolution seeking to condemn Israeli settlements in the West Bank, including East Jerusalem, as illegal.
