Press Release: Fallacy of “Only Democracy in Middle East” Exposed

The Islamic Human Rights Commission today condemns the Israeli decision to prevent Palestinians in Occupied Jerusalem from voting in the upcoming Palestinian parliamentary elections.

IHRC views the move as a calculated attempt to prevent Palestinians from choosing their representatives, and thereby exercising their right to self-determination.

IHRC Chair Massoud Shadjareh stated:

“It is the height of hypocrisy that it is perfectly democratic for a war criminal like Sharon to be elected to rule over illegally occupied territory while Palestinians are denied the right of self-determination in their own land.

The true nature of the 'only democracy in the Middle East' has now been exposed.”
