In a speech which was read at the UN on the occasion of International Day of Solidarity with the Palestinian People, Palestinian Ambassador Dr. Zuhair Al-Wazeer, on behalf of President Mahmoud Abbas, thanked the efforts of the United Nations and its support to the Palestinian people. The president urged the United Nations, represented by its Secretary-General, to continue in its efforts until they reach a comprehensive, lasting and just solution to the Palestinian cause which ends the Israeli occupation and enables the Palestinian people’s the right to self-determination
The Palestinian President called in the speech on the international community for action to compel Israel to abide by all resolutions of international legitimacy, which states for Israeli withdrawal from all Arab territories occupied in 1967, pointing out that the peace process and negotiations will not lead to results, but will only exacerbate the violence and extremism if Israel does not commit to the implementation of the UN resolutions of the Security Council No. 242 of 1967 and No. 338 of 1973, which are the basis for the peace process in the Middle East
President Abbas also called on the international community to put an end to all unilateral acts by Israel which undermine the peace process in front of Palestinian and global public opinion.
He said: “The essence of the conflict is the occupation and the settlements, and the time has come for the world to address the roots of this conflict to end the occupation and achieve the Independence State of Palestine, which we hope it will be a new active member recognized by the United Nations in the next year”. He added: “we assure you all that the United Nations and international legitimacy will remain the reference and sanctuary for us to take any decisions if all the efforts failed in the negotiations, which we assure you that we will do our best to make it success”.
The Palestinian president asked repeatedly in his long speech for the support the international community and the Arabs, most of whose representatives were absent from the event of solidarity with the Palestinian people. He said: “The Palestinian people derives its unwavering faith from the justice of their cause and your support and solidarity (he meant the support of the international community, most of whose representatives and ambassadors were not present at the official ceremony) and the support and the solidarity of all the brothers and friends (he meant the Arab countries, most of whose ambassadors and representatives did not attend the event of solidarity with Palestine this year or in the past three years).
The Palestinian President also asked the efforts of co-sponsors of the peace conference, including President Obama (who has repeatedly proved his incompetence and failure, and who clearly supports the zionist State through generous financial gifts of billions of dollars gifts of US arms and other destruction equipment banned internationally so that Israel accepts “temporarily freezing” their colonies in occupied Palestine). Abbas also begged the Russian and the European Union and Japan, China and the Non-Aligned Movement for support in the speech read on his behalf, and he did not forget to beg the support of all the so-called friends of Palestine … everywhere, particularly in the United Nations.
He ended his speech read by Ambassador Al-Wazeer on his behalf by sending a message to the Israelis: (the Zionists), saying that our hand will still be able to carry the dry olive branch from the rubble (he meant the ruins of neighborhoods which were destroyed by Israel in various cities of the West Bank, in occupied Jerusalem and the Gaza Strip, in the largest ethnic cleansing operation of Palestinian people in the history of the occupation). He added that “we will continue to extend our hand for just peace in order to secure a safe future for our children and the children of Israel”. (He meant the war criminals and the murderers children who crushed our nation in Gaza and the West Bank and who stole our land and built their Zionist organization).
Also, the previous sentence could be understood to mean that the PA will continue playing the game of “peace process” to ensure the salaries of the corrupt system of the Palestine Liberation Organization and until the Palestinian nation will not find one meter to negotiate about, which is when they will announce an end to the Palestinian National Authority and run away to other countries with all the money from their betrayal stashed in their bank accounts.
As a Palestinian I feel deeply sad and ashamed that the Palestinian Authority goes to the UN to ask for alms in my name, under the pretext of solidarity with a Palestine and a Palestinian people. Our rights are inalienable, based on international law, they are non-negotiable. Period. Our rights need not be asked or begged for, they do not depend on the benevolence of our Arab or other “friends”. I hope that in the future the representatives of Palestine will find a far more assertive tone, reminding the world that the time has come to trim back Israel and its supporters, what is certainly possible with very little effort. Israel has no standing in law or otherwise to exist. Also, every power in this world can be broken, and the apparent power of the zionists is no exception to this rule. Before this background and with this understanding it is that all future conversations regarding the future of Palestine should be held.
