British MP David Burrowes is on a three-day trip to Israel and the PA-run territories organized by the Israel Allies Caucus. Seeing “reality on the ground,” he opposes the UK’s vote on Palestinian statehood.

The House of Commons’ symbolic debate and vote on Palestinian statehood in London Monday is a mistake and does not advance the cause of peace, British parliamentarian David Burrowes told The Jerusalem Post.

“The vote to look at a pre-emptive recognition of a Palestinian state, way before successful peace negotiations, is not right,” Burrowes said.

“It might make a political statement, it may have meaning to Labor politicians, but it won’t go anywhere in being able to support peace.” said Burrowes.
