Nicaraguan president Daniel Ortega government is hosting an international conference on Occupied Palestine in Managua on February 4, 2017. The UN sponsored conference would focus on strengthening ties between Palestinians living in central America and the occupied Palestine.

Belize, formerly known as British Honduras, will be represented by its former prime minister Said W. Mousa, a Palestinian whose father Hamid Musa immigrated to British Honduras from Ramallah (British occupied Palestine) in 1930. He married a native woman and started a small business. His son Said went to Britain to study law and later entered politics.

Said visited the occupied Palestine in 1965 for the first time to discover his Palestinian roots while studying law in London. Since he couldn’t speak Arabic, he took an Arab friend along on the trip.

Said was one of the authors of Belize’s Declaration of Independence. After Belize gained independence from Britain in 1981, he was appointed foreign minister. In 1998, he led the Popular Union Party to victory in national elections, and became the first Muslim prime minister of the tiny country.

Prime minister Said Musa appointed Assad Shoman, the only Palestinian Jew in Belize as his ambassador to London. Listen to Musa’s interview below.

British Jewish oligarch Lord Michael Ashcroft has sued financially-battled government of Belize for $50 million in US court after prime minister Dean Borrow refused to pay the Shylock.
