Also what were the basic contents of Palestine's speech after inscription. The German delegate did stay for the remainder of the nominations, no?
Í cannot really quote what the Palestine's speech was, but it referred directly to the Israeli occupation and long struggle and so on. It was unnecessary political in my view. The other acceptance speeches are all like "thank you St. Petersburg, thank you ICOMOS, we will look after it carefully".
The Israeli delegate responded to the Palestine's speech, and I feared that it would turn into a full battle of words. But he restrained himself, said that the Church of Nativity fully deserved inscription (Germany also said so), but not via this procedure. Palestine could have taken measures a long time ago to prevent it from falling apart. There's no urgency.
The German probably stayed, but she had been very active during the days before and had to comment on almost everything. The only thing she did after Palestine got the inscription was to congratulate Israel on its inscription of Mount Carmel.
