The Member of Parliament for Assin South Constituency in the Central Region, Rev. John Ntim Fordjour, has appealed for a co-existence between Israel and the rest of the world.
According to him, the people of Israel have the right to exist and to live in peace, just like every other people in the world.
The MP said “if the world would incline towards Israel’s narrative, we would appreciate even the more, the challenges of the people of Israel, and the fact that they have the right to exist and to live in peace, just like every other people”.
“Israel has a tenable story worth upholding, but unfortunately, the narrative of Israel has seldom come to the fore and hardly found expression in global media reportage”, he made the statement on the floor of the House.
Also, he said he supported the UN Security Council Resolution “calling for a two-state solution to the Israel-Palestine conflict” and acknowledged former UN Secretary-General, Kofi Annan, for “charting the path towards the peaceful resolution of the Israel-Palestine conflict.”
“Contrary to the entrenched position and regrettable actions of Hamas against the state of Israel, I appeal to the UN, AU, and Ghana in particular, to arise in solidarity with Israel, to recognize the State of Israel and uphold that indeed, the good people of Israel have a right to exist and to live in peace,” the MP added.
