New York, (SANA) – Syria's Permanent Representative to the UN Bashar al-Jaafari said that the Israeli occupation entity seeks to find conditions of explosion in the region because, as its leaders admit, it can’t continue without a war, so it sponsors terrorism in the region.
In a speech during the meeting of the Committee on the Exercise of the Inalienable Rights of the Palestinian People (UNISPAL) at the UN on Tuesday, al-Jaafari said that in light of the policy of fait accompli which Israel tires to impose, it's unacceptable that the UN and the member states deal with it in routine or solidarity without any productive act.
He reminded of the UN general Assembly resolution No. 273 for 1949 which specified the acceptance of Israel's membership at the UN, mainly on the condition that it would commit to resolutions relevant to the Palestinian issue which affirm the Palestinian people's right in establishing their state with Jerusalem as its capital and their right to return home.
Al-Jaafari said that Israel's escaping from punishment encouraged it to escalate its hostile practices and violation of human rights and international law.
"Part of the Syrian territories is still under occupation, since more than 45 years, despite the Security Council unanimous resolution No. 497 for 1981 which considered Israel's decision to annex the Syrian Golan in 1981 null and void and without legal basis, and based on this, the UN is required to shoulder its responsibilities to force Israel to apply to its resolutions," al-Jaafari said.
" It is unacceptable that the UN has failed in forcing Israel carry out the international resolutions, stop its flagrant, systemized violations of the Syrians' right under occupation in Golan, put an end to the apartheid, looting the natural Golan resources, including oil, gas and water ," al-Jaafari said.
He added that Israel has lately marketed for a kind of wine produced in its settlements in the occupied Syrian Golan; it markets it in a number of UN member states which vote against Israel polices, and perhaps these countries don't know that the wine comes from the Israeli settlements in Golan.
"It is also unacceptable that Israel continues the campaigns of the feverish settlement in the Syrian Golan, building a racial separation wall to the East of the occupied Majdal Shams city and rejecting handing over the mine fields' maps, planted in the Golan termites, to the international organizations," al-Jaafair said.
He held Israel and its politicians responsible for sponsoring terrorism and involving in cooperation, protecting the armed terrorist groups in the UNDOF.
Al-Jaafari affirmed that the choice of the just and comprehensive peace wouldn't not be achieved except by Israel's full withdrawal from the Arab territories into the line of June 4th, 1967, the establishment of the Palestinian independent state with Jerusalem as its capital and resolving the Palestinian refugees issue according to resolution No. 194 for 1948.

Brussels, November 19, 2013
The Dutch liberal politician and former EU Commissioner Frits Bolkestein has launched a scathing attack against Guy Verhofstadt, who leads the liberal and pro-European ALDE group in the European Parliament,
Guy Verhofstadt dreams of a federal European superstate: “A federal EU is the only option. The EU should have its own president, foreign minister, army and prosecutor”.
Verhofstadt on Lybia: “The weak position of the EU makes me sick”
Verhofstadt on Syria: “The time for peace talks is over, we need action now. If the UN doesn’t react, then NATO should.”
Verhofstadt is since 2012 a Board Member of the Brussels-based, Brussels-quoted Sofina holding (petroleum gas and oil platforms). The Belgian industrialist Viscount Etienne Davignon, Chairman of the Bilderberg Group, is Honorary Director of Sofina.
On 20 February 2009 the European Parliament voted in favour of the creation of Synchronised Armed Forces Europe (SAFE) as a first step towards a true European military force. SAFE will be directed by an EU directorate, with its own training standards and operational doctrine. There are also plans to create an EU “Council of Defence Ministers” and “a European statute for soldiers within the framework of Safe governing training standards, operational doctrine and freedom of operational action”.

Damascus, (SANA)- The activities of Extraordinary Session of the Arab Parties' General Conference kicked off in the Damascus-based Dama Rose Hotel on Monday.
The conference is scheduled to discuss the political scene in Syria in light of the war waged against it by Arab, regional and international forces.
A number of party's representatives from Egypt, Jordan, Lebanon, Palestine, Morocco, Yemen, Tunisia and Bahrain are participating in the Conference.
The Conference's chairman, Safwan Qudsi said the conference is convened at an ''intricate political juncture'' that is the result of a major conspiracy intended to fracture the Arab world and restructure it according to the US interests.
The conspiracy started with the wars launched in Iraq, Lebanon and Palestine, Qudsi said, and ''has today resurfaced through adopting a misleading concept: moderate Islam'' that was popularized by the so-called 'Arab Spring.'
Member of the regional leadership of al-Baath Arab Socialist Party, Youssef Ahmad said that meeting of the Arab parties is an opportunity for thrashing out ideas on the Arab causes, crises and concerns.
The tough crisis in Syria notwithstanding, al-Baath Party has not absolved itself, as leader of the stat, of responsibility for wrongs and shortcomings that happened at a particular stage and "created loopholes in the state and society,'' Ahmad pointed out.
The participants saw that some Arab regimes who are speaking about democracy, elections and regime change in other Arab states are ''silencing the voice of the opposition in their own countries and oppressing change.''
They hailed the Syrian army, state and people who stood fast against the aggression, voicing confidence that Syria's victory over the conspiracy is close at hand thanks to the sacrifices of Syrian army.
Syria will outline the features of a new Arab regional system, the participants stressed, affirming that the conspiracy is aimed at destroying the Syrian state, army and infrastructure but ''is doomed to failure.''

The ceremony was attended by Prime Minister Wael al-Halqi, Assistant Regional Secretary of al-Baath Party Hilal al-Hilal, a number of ministers, members of al-Baath Party Regional Leadership, Governors of Damascus and Damascus Countryside, and party, union and vocational figures.
In a statement to journalists, Premier al-Halqi said that the working class is the most important pillar of the achievements made under the Correctionist Moving, and that this class is becoming more productive under the leadership of President al-Assad.
He lauded the efforts of Syria's workers who helped bolster Syria's steadfastness by building, producing and protecting their facilities, resulting in many of them being killed or injured at the hands of terrorists.
Al-Halqi appreciated the role of workers, particularly in the electric power sector, in preserving the dignity, sovereignty and independence of Syria alongside the Armed Forces, voicing hope that Syria will witness more security, stability, construction and achievements.
He said that the history of the working class in Syria is an honorable one marked by knowledge, faith, creativity and innovation, and that this class is still the basis of building national economy and achieving comprehensive development.
In turn, member of al-Baath Party Regional Leadership and head of the General Federation of Trade Unions Mohammad Shaaban Azzouz said that the sacrifices of workers, Armed Forces, security forces and the masses will pave the way to victory, noting that throughout the crisis in Syria, there have been more than 3,500 workers who died working and defending their facilities from terrorism.

UN Secretary-General Ban Ki Moon's statement
Your Majesties, Prime Minister, Distinguished Heads of State and Government, Ladies and Gentlemen:
Why have you invited me to speak here? Because terrorism is a threat to all states, to all peoples, which can strike anytime, anywhere.
It is a direct attack on the core values the United Nations stands for: the rule of law; the protection of civilians; mutual respect between people of different faiths and cultures; and peaceful resolution of conflicts.
