First Voice


During the 21st Doha Forum in Doha, Qatar, the Palestinian Ambassador to the United Kingdom, Husam Zomlot, passionately argued for a historical perspective on the Palestinian-Israeli conflict. He stated, "The United Kingdom, Great Britain, has contributed to the situation that we live in today.

He pointed out that "It was started by global powers and continued by the U.S."
