The Arab Ministerial Committee that deals with Israel’s illegal actions in Jerusalem held its emergency meeting today in capital Amman as per the invitation from Jordan, which is heading the committee. The purpose of the meeting is to discuss the dangerous situation in Jerusalem and Al-Aqsa Mosque in order to put a stop to the escalation and restore peace. The meeting was attended by the Secretary General of The Arab League. Jordanian Foreign Minister Ayman Safadi emphasized Arab and Islam’s stance on the historic and legal status in Jerusalem, stressing the need to stop the escalation. The Secretary General of The Arab League suggested sending letters of protest to the UN and EU explaining Israel’s escalation in Jerusalem and Arab world’s stance against it. This is the fourth meeting held by the committee that was formed by The Council of the Arab League last year.


Soundbite (Ayman Safadi – Jordanian Foreign Minister):

            “Today’s meeting reflects the situation on occupied Jerusalem. We refuse to let it be violated in an attempt to strip it of its Arab, Islamic and Christian identity. The Arab Ministerial Committee is here on behalf of the Arab League to state our protest against any violation of Al-Aqsa. We are here to request peace and the end of violence, which is though respect of the historic and legal status of Jerusalem.”

Soundbite (Riyad Al-Maliki – Palestinian Foreign Minister):

            “Israel is violating Palestinians right to access holy places and perform their religious rituals. Israel is violating Palestinians human rights and International humanitarian law. Israel wishes to actualize its vision that contradicts Al-Aqsa’s historic and legal status, which has not changed since 1902.”

Soundbite (Ahmed Aboul Gheit – Secretary General of The Arab League):

            “The Secretariat will request the UN and its Secretary General to distribute this statement as an official document of the UN, Genral Assembly and Security Council. Letters containing this meeting’s contents and statements will be sent to foreign ministers of the five permanent members of United Nations Security Council as well as EU presidnecy. Many procedures will be be adopted and implemented in the next few hours in order to inform the International Commission of Arab world’s protest and point of view regarding the current situation.”
