Only one resolution (B7-0135/2010) was rejected. Here’s the EU Parliament press release:

Gaza conflict: implementing the Goldstone recommendations…

  • All parties should respect human rights
  • Independent and impartial investigations within the next five months
  • Implementing and monitoring the Goldstone recommendations
  • No restriction of NGO activities

Finally, Parliament welcomes the Council’s 8 December 2009 call for “an immediate, sustained and unconditional opening of crossings” along the Gaza-Israel frontier as the blockade has further worsened the humanitarian crisis in the Gaza Strip.

The resolution was approved with 335 votes in favour, 287 against and 43 abstentions.
