70th anniversary of Nakba Day

As the Palestinians across the world are  marking  the 70th anniversary of the Nakba Day (the Day of Catastrophe), the US took the provocative  decision of moving the US embassy to Jerusalem.The moving of the US embassy to Jerusalem is a grave development that puts Washington on the same side as "occupation" and the violation of international law.The moving of the US embassy  to Jerusalem is illegal and a dangerous violation of international law. It's a dangerous development that places the United States at a position of complete bias in favor of the occupation and the violation of international law and resolutions.

This provocative measuremeans the death of the two states solution.It  is a declaration of war in the Middle East. Trump is declaring war against 1.5 billion Muslims and hundreds of millions of Christians that are not going to accept the holy shrines to be totally under the hegemony of Israel.

The transfer of the US embassy to Jerusalem on Nakba Day is a blatant violation of international legitimacy resolutionsand clearly shows how the United States takes lightly the will of the international community and its hypocrisy when it talks about this international community to implement its hostile policies.

The US administration’s decision proves once again its hostility towards the Arab nation and its disregard for the nation’s people, proving that the US policies are employed to serve the Zionist project in the region.

The current Arab situation and the collusion of certain Arab regimes with the nation’s enemies have set the stage for this disgraceful US decision, which requires correcting the Arab situation and putting an end to the course of subservience, lethargy, and conspiracy followed by these regimes, and it requires building a unified Arab stance that reflects the will of the people and that can defend the nation’s interests and existence.

As the Palestinians commemorate the 70th anniversary of the Nakba Day, they are more determined to liberate their occupied lands and establish their independent state with Jerusalem as its capital. They are also more determined to the repatriation right which has been guaranteed by UN resolutions.

On the 15th of May 1948, more than 800 thousand of Palestinians were forcibly displaced, by Zionists, from their indigenous towns and cities into the West Bank and Gaza Strip to neighboring Arab countries, and other countries of the world. Since then, the Zionists have been committing heinous massacres against the Palestinian people with the aim of perpetuating the Israeli occupation of the Palestinian territories and obliterating the repatriation right of the Palestinian refugees to their indigenous homeland. The Zionist criminal record includes scores of savage massacres against the defenceless Palestinians. The Zionist gangs confiscated 775 towns and villages and destroyed 535 Palestinian towns and villages during the Nakba. The atrocities of Israeli Zionists also included over 70 massacres in which 15 thousand Palestinians were killed by Zionist terrorist gangs. The Zionist terrorist paramilitaries carried out massacres and forced expulsions, including the infamous massacre of Palestinian men, women, and children in the village of Deir Yassin in April 1948. The Israeli military continued to carry out a campaign of uprooting and expelling the indigenous Palestinian people, forcing Palestinians to flee their homes and land. Altogether Israel expelled more than 80 percent of the Palestinian population. This campaign continued long after hostilities ceased and included the razing of nearly 400 Palestinian villages.

Zionism and Wahhabism are two faces of the same coin, where events bring to light the clear cooperation between the Zionist entity, Gulf States and Turkey that involved in the aggression on Syria by supporting terrorist organizations infinitely. The Zionist entity aims at obliterating the Right of Return for the whole Palestinian people through its clear support for the terrorist organizations in Syria which launched intensive assaults on the Palestinian camps and displaced their residents. The Israeli regime has denied Palestinian refugees the right to return, despite UN resolutions and international laws upholding the people’s right to return to their homelands.

 Palestinians have held rallies in various parts of the world to commemorate the 70th anniversary of the Nakba Day. Palestinians took to the streets of various world capitals to demand that the Israeli regime leave their lands after decades of occupation.

  Today the Palestinian refugees and their descendants number 4 million people, many still living in refugee camps in the occupied territories, Syria, Lebanon, and elsewhere. Israel has been refusing the right of these refugees to return to their homes in violation of international law and numerous United Nations resolutions. At the same time, in a striking example of inequality and discrimination, Israel has declared itself the state of all the Jews in the world and automatically grants citizenship to any Jewish person anywhere in the world who seeks to immigrate to Israel. A Jew living in Texas, for example, who has never lived in Israel, can automatically gain the benefits of citizenship under the so-called "Law of Return", one of Israel's racial Laws.

Successive Zionist governments have been following a racist settlement policy through confiscating Palestinian lands and constructing Jewish settlements with the aim of changing the geographic and demographic status of the occupied Palestinian territories and perpetuate the Israeli occupation. But the Palestinians will not be subjugated by the racist Zionist measures and will press ahead with their struggle until the achievement of their noble rights, especially the right of return and the establishment of an independent Palestinian state with Jerusalem as its capital.
