The Arab Peace Group has followed the stormy developments in the territory of the State of Palestine, with Jerusalem as its capital, since the beginning of the blessed month of Ramadan, which witnessed a dangerous escalation by the Israeli army against the Muslims stationed and praying in the blessed Al-Aqsa Mosque, as well as the Palestinian Christian Arabs in the church The resurrection of the Lord Jesus Christ, and it resulted from the successive incursions by the colonists’ flocks, which led to the fall of hundreds of wounded and imprisoned Palestinians, and the great destruction that resulted from that, with the aim of imposing the temporal and spatial division in the first of the two Qiblas and the third of the Two Holy Mosques, and changing the historical character of Jerusalem, And the dropping of the Jordanian guardianship over the Islamic and Christian holy sites, in addition to the fall of nearly twenty martyrs in many areas of the West Bank.
In the same context, and on the eve of the Palestinian Christians’ celebrations of Easter, the occupation authorities restricted the worshipers’ access to the Church of the Holy Sepulcher, which reflects the insistence of the Israeli government of change on violating human rights, the freedom of Palestinian citizens to practice their religious rituals, and turning their back on international laws, customs, charters and treaties, especially the four Geneva Conventions, and all Resolutions of international legitimacy related to the holy places.
Accordingly, the Arab Peace Group announces:
First: Its clear and explicit condemnation of the crimes of the Israeli ethnic cleansing state against the Palestinian Arab people who follow the Islamic and Christian religions, and it declares its firm rejection of the incursions into Al-Aqsa Mosque and the Church of the Holy Sepulcher.
Second: It rejects what the Israeli government aims at imposing temporal and spatial division, and changing the historical character of the city of Jerusalem and its sanctities, and stresses adherence to the Jordanian guardianship over Islamic and Christian holy sites.
Third: It appreciates the statement of the Arab Committee on Sanctities, which was issued yesterday, Thursday, at its meeting held in Amman. And it calls for the intensification of official Arab efforts to stop the serious Israeli violations in the holy places throughout Palestine.
Fourth: It calls on Islamic countries in general, the Organization of Islamic Cooperation and international and continental organizations to take positions condemning and rejecting the Israeli violations and crimes, and to support the struggle of the Palestinian people to achieve their freedom and independence and their return to their lands and homes from which they were expelled in the year of the 1948 Nakba.
Fifth: The United States, the European Union, and the Security Council call for the adoption of international standards governing conflict resolution, stopping the policy of siding with the state of organized Zionist terrorism, and supporting the peace option based on the two-state solution on the June 4, 1967 borders, and ensuring the return of Palestinian refugees to their homes on the basis of the international resolution 194 and full equality for the Palestinian people inside the Palestinian territories.
Sixth: The Arab Peace Group affirms its firm and firm stance on the side of the Palestinian Arab people, and calls on them, at this historical moment, to bridge the divergent positions and advance the vehicle of national reconciliation on the basis of the agreements concluded between Fatah and Hamas and the factions of the Palestine Liberation Organization, and to strengthen the factors of unity and confrontation facing the Arab people.
