EU Parliament Was Scheduled To Discuss Palestine In Brussels Today

One of the topics planned for discussion at the EU parliament in Brussels today was, Palestine.

Palestine’s Foreign Affairs Minister Riad Al-Malki was scheduled to attend a seminar at the EU Government HQ according to this weeks agenda:

“Palestine: Palestine’s Foreign Affairs Minister Riad Al-Malki will join Foreign Affairs Committee Members to debate the political situation there, including the inter-Palestinian reconciliation talks, the economic and humanitarian situation in occupied Palestinian territories, initiatives for re-launching Middle East peace process, and the regional situation.

Grand Mufti of Egypt: Shawki Ibrahim Abdel-Karim Allam, Grand Mufti of Egypt, will also join the Foreign Affairs Committee to debate inter-religious and inter-cultural dialogue.”

The EU government building is very close to where the Metro bomb exploded earlier in the morning.

According to reports the European Commission’s vice-president Kristalina Georgieva said all meetings were cancelled and urged people to “stay home or inside buildings” following reports of an explosion at Maelbeek station.

A European Council tweet said: “Closely monitoring the situation. All meetings cancelled this morning. Priority to ensure safety of staff & visitors.

Despite that, however it turns out that the Palestine debate went ahead.

This may be nothing more than a coincidence, although it is worth going back to the sinister threats that were issued to France in 2014 by Israeli prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu.

He warned: “It would be a grave mistake for France to recognize Palestine as a free and independent state”.
