Statement by Council on International Relations on the International Day of Solidarity with the Palestinian People
CIR: Celebrating the world with this day requires more solidarity and support for our people
On 29 November of each year, the world celebrates the International Day of Solidarity with the Palestinian People in accordance with the resolution adopted by the General Assembly of the United Nations in 1977.
As we pass through this day, our Palestinian people continue to live under the Israeli occupation, which diversities its criminal policies that target everything related to the rights of our people, foremost of which is their right to live in dignity on their national soil and their independent state.
The seventy years since the establishment of the Israeli occupation state on the soil of Palestine and the expulsion of our people from their villages and cities and obliterating everything that is related to their existence was not enough for the world to move and take measures to do justice to this oppressed people and restore some of their rights, primarily an independent state with Jerusalem as its capital, as recognized by international legitimacy.
Therefore, the celebration of the world on this day requires more solidarity and support for the causes of our people and their continuous struggle to achieve their rights, not less than to condemn the policies of the occupation and its actions against our people, and to carry out boycott campaign of everything related to him at all political, cultural, economic and diplomatic levels. Moving the embassies of countries to the holy city of Jerusalem should be condemned as well as the crimes of the occupation against the population in the city, the most recent decision to deport more than 700 citizens of Jerusalem from their homes on the pretext of possession by Israeli institutions, not to mention what is happening in Al Khan Al Ahmar and not far from the crimes of the occupation against the people in the Gaza Strip through the destructive war machine.
We, in the Council, hope that the positions of these countries will be strengthened to form a unity of a pressing position on the occupation in all international forums, especially the United Nations and its organs, the UN Security Council and the International Criminal Court in particular until a clear message is sent to the occupation that its criminal policies are no longer unknown to anyone, and its falsification of the facts will not be useful in changing the right to nullity, and sooner or later the right holders of Palestine will have their rights.
On this occasion, we condemn some juggling in the normalization of relations between some governments in the Arab region and the state of the Israeli occupation, with the knowledge of the reality of the popular position in these countries, which we cherish and consider as the true position of the nation. We call on the vital forces of our Arab and Islamic nation to express their positions on what is happening and condemn this strange behavior of our nation. In the same context, we highly appreciate the positions of countries that refused to deal with the infiltration attempts by the occupation and demand more steadfastness on the road to support our people and cause.
