People’s Assembly condemned the US administration’s decision to recognize occupied Jerusalem as capital of the Israeli occupation entity and to move its embassy to it.
“ The US decision constitutes a flagrant violation of the UN Charter and the resolutions of the international legitimacy, a desecration of the national and historical rights of the Palestinian people, and a clear attempt to liquidate the Palestinian Cause,” the Assembly stressed, in a statement on Wednesday.
“This decision will not change the truth that occupied Jerusalem is an Arab Palestinian city and it is one of the rights of the Arab Palestinian People which couldn’t be tampered with by any state, whatever the military power it possess, as it is the case with regard to every inch of the Palestinian lands,” the statement said, adding that “this decision is an extension of the Balfour Declaration.”
It pointed out that the US administration should be aware that the rights, which the peoples have acquired through their cultural eligibility, couldn’t be dropped by improvisational decisions which do not realize the truth of the conflict taking place in the region.
The Assembly concluded its statement by saying that this measure will constitute a new cover by the US administration to the Israeli entity to go far in violating the legitimate rights of the Palestinian people and continue displacing them and depriving them of their right in establishing their independent state with Jerusalem as its capital, calling upon the Palestinian people to unite their ranks and to adhere to the resistance option as the only choice.
