Syria, Palestine: Israeli occupation

November 26, 2013

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.

Polio Vaccination Campaign Syria: A Trojan horse

Along one side the West wants a puppet government in Syria and delivers constantly weapons to the terrorists and opposition fighting the Syrian government.

On the other hand, it makes publicity for its 'Global Poverty Project' by advertising mass vaccination campaigns simultaneously in Syria and other countries (Iraq, Pakistan,).

That's pure hypocrisy because polio is a result of a lack of hygienic conditions (water, food).

It is therefore that the Syrian Health Minister, Dr. Saad al-Nayef, has requested the International Concerned organizations to demand the economic embargo on Syria lifted as it targets the health, food and medicine of the Syrian children.

Let us wait and see if Western organizations and government leaders dare to be honest...
