Under the patronage of the Speaker of the Malaysian Parliament and the presence of YAB Tun Dr Mahathir Mohammad Prime Minister of Malaysian and the participation of more than 400 MPs from 65 countries, the League of Parliamentarian for Jerusalem held its 3rd international conference under the title of “towards effective strategy to defend Jerusalem” in the Malaysian capital Kuala Lumpur on 8 and 9 February 2020.
This conference comes shortly after the announcement of the so-called “Deal of the Century” by US President Donald Trump which represents new aggression on the Palestinian people and the denial of their historical rights to their homeland and a stark violation of international laws and norms and human rights.
The conference participants discussed over the period of 2 days the dangers of the continuation of Israeli occupation towards the region and the world and, the necessary roles to end it and achieve justice for the Palestinian.
The conference also witnessed several workshops and meetings to emphasize the role of parliamentarians in mobilizing solidarity for the Palestinian people and their just cause, and to fulfill their legitimate aspirations.
The conference participants emphasized on the following:
Supporting Palestinian right of return and self-determination and the establishment of a sovereign independent Palestinian state with Jerusalem as its capital
Rejecting and condemning the so-called “Deal of the Century” which represents a continuation of the systematic American policy which is bias towards Israeli occupation and discrimination against the Palestinian people and represent a stark violation of international law and human rights: it is the deal of the one who does not own with the one who does not deserve.
Condemning all forms of normalization with the occupation, and considering that as an award for its crimes and aggression.
Any major or decision that does not grant the Palestinian people their full right will end in failure and will only result in more enmities and hatred, will prevent the achievement the peace and stability in the region and the world
The cover that the American administration provide for: the repeated Israeli violations in Jerusalem against Al-Aqsa Mosque and other Islamic and Christian sanctuaries, the torture of the Palestinian people, the construction of the illegal settlements, the annexation of land and the blockade of Gaza are an act of aggression and will never serve the goal of achieving justice and peace.
The Zionist aggression and violations against the Palestinian people and their rights and the continued American bias towards Israel require the unification of the Palestinian, Arab, Islamic and international front to face this aggression and violation.
