Palestine rejects UAE decision on Jerusalem



The Palestinian leadership announces its strong rejection and condemnation of the surprising American, Israeli, and Emirati tripartite declaration on a complete normalization of relations between the Israeli occupation state and the United Arab Emirates, in exchange for claiming a temporary suspension of the plan to annex Palestinian lands and extend Israeli sovereignty over them, and in light of the occupation state’s insistence on establishing an occupation  And annexation of parts of the Palestinian territories, especially the city of Jerusalem, and violating the sanctities of religious sanctities, especially the blessed Al-Aqsa Mosque.The Palestinian leadership considers this step to blow up the Arab Peace Initiative and the decisions of the Arab and Islamic summits, and international legitimacy, as an aggression against the Palestinian people, and as neglecting Palestinian rights and sacred things, especially Jerusalem and the independent Palestinian state on the borders of June 4, 1967. The Palestinian leadership rejects what the United Arab Emirates has done as a betrayal of Jerusalem, Al-Aqsa and the Palestinian cause, and recognizes Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, and demands that it immediately withdraw from this disgraceful declaration. It also refuses to barter an illegal annexation suspension for Emirati normalization and to use the Palestinian cause as a cover for this purpose.  Bowing to American pressure, following in the footsteps of the UAE, and free normalization with the Israeli occupation state at the expense of Palestinian rights. The leadership affirms that the UAE, or any other party, has no right to speak on behalf of the Palestinian people, and does not allow anyone to intervene in the Palestinian affairs or report on their behalf about their legitimate rights in their homeland. The Palestinian leadership also affirms that the Palestine Liberation Organization is the sole and legitimate representative of the Palestinian people, and that the Palestinian people stand today in every place united behind their legitimate leadership, headed by President Mahmoud Abbas in the face of this brutal tripartite declaration. In the face of these dangerous developments, the Palestinian leadership calls for an immediate emergency session of the Arab League, as well as the Organization of Islamic Cooperation, to reject this declaration. The Palestinian leadership also calls on the international community to adhere to international law and resolutions of international legitimacy that form the basis for resolving the Palestinian-Israeli conflict, and that peace can only be achieved through the complete end to the Israeli occupation of the Palestinian territories.
