Al-Thani addressed the Palestinian cause, saying: “The issue of Israel’s deportation of the residents of Sheikh Jarrah and Silwan neighborhoods in occupied Jerusalem, the recent storming of Al-Aqsa Mosque by settlers, and the angry Palestinian, Arab and international reactions, reaffirmed the centrality of the Palestinian cause, and that there is no way to circumvent. on her”.
And he added, “This year has witnessed numerous Israeli violations in occupied East Jerusalem, repeated attacks on Islamic and Christian sanctities, especially the Temple Mount during the holy month of Ramadan, and the seizure of Palestinian homes in the context of the policies of Judaization and settlement.”
He stressed that “the international community bears the responsibility to achieve a comprehensive and just peace settlement of the Palestinian issue by establishing a Palestinian state on the 1967 borders, with East Jerusalem as its capital, alongside the State of Israel, ending the occupation of Arab lands, and a just solution to the refugee issue.”
He added, “As a result of this continuous procrastination, it appears from time to time that the Palestinian issue can be marginalized on the international agenda, or that a deeply rooted national issue can be circumvented by putting forward ideas such as improving the economic situation of the population under occupation instead of removing the occupation.”
