European Jewish Congress President, Moshe Kantor, has called on European nations to reject the Palestinian United Nations status upgrade to non-member observer status.

“The recent conflict proved beyond any doubt that the Palestinian Authority does not meet the criteria of statehood as it exercises absolutely no authority over part of its territory and is not ‘peace seeking’ as is required of any nation according to the United Nations Charter,” Kantor said.

The EJC believes that accepting the upgrade only a few days after the recent conflict in Gaza and southern Israel would be used to open another front against Israel.
