Prince William please do not let your visit to Israel be used as an endorsement for Israeli policies

Prince William, if your trip to Israel includes a visit to Yad Veshem, please ask about Deir Yassin, one of many Palestinian villages destroyed in 1948.
Speak to members of Breaking the Silence, B'tselem and Ta'aush - all Israeli human rights organisations.
In Bethlehem please go to the Gilo checkpoint, the Aida refugee camp, the Wall and Wi'am (the Christian Conflict Resolution Centre).
Visit Hebron and go to Shuhada Street in the Old city and ask about the Palestinians still trying to survive there, and the Bedouin communities attempting to hold on to their land in the South Hebron Hills.
And please don't forget Gaza. Remember that Hamas was a product of Israeli policies, not the cause of them.
Listen to the voices of the many children trapped in that huge, overcrowded and wretched giant prison and the hopelessness imposed on them by Israel.
Finally remember that the Balfour Declaration promised to protect the non-Jewish population of Palestine and that Britain has a responsibility towards them. FULL READ AND SIGN HERE.
