That the Parliament commends those people attempting to travel from Scotland to the West Bank as part of the Welcome to Palestine initiative on 15 April 2012 at the invitation of Palestinian civil society in order to take part in political discussion and education projects in Bethlehem, to bring attention to the fact that Palestinians have been denied visitation rights in the occupied territories, to highlight what is considered the repressive nature of the Israeli state, which it understands jailed and then deported 150 peaceful individuals in the 2011 initiative, to raise awareness of the lack of freedom of movement endured by Palestinians both inside and outside the occupied territories and to show solidarity with the Palestinian people who it believes continue to be denied the most basic of rights.
