Palestine Solidarity Day Being Observed in Pakistan Today
The demonstrations this week became particularly violent as the 70th anniversary of the creation of the modern state of Israel approached and the USA embassy in Israel officially moved to Jerusalem.
Arab League Secretary-General Ahmed Aboul Gheit said the organisation should revise relations with the US, Guatemala and other countries that may recognise Jerusalem as the capital of Israel and move their embassies to the city.
"Today is an occasion to reflect on the costs and consequences of the 1948 War - which resulted in the mass displacement and dispossession of hundreds of thousands of Palestinians from their homes", said Ms. Mohammad, referring to what Palestinians call "Al Naqba", or catastrophe. Hamas and the leaders of the demonstrations have a responsibility to prevent all violent actions.
Pope Francis said he was "very worried" by escalating violence in the Middle East, with Arab foreign ministers set to hold an "extraordinary" meeting yesterday to discuss the situation. Others also condemned the United States, but none of the members said they would recall their ambassadors.
Palestinians are seeking East Jerusalem, which Israel captured in the 1967 Arab-Israeli war and later annexed in a move not recognised by the worldwide community, as the capital of their future state.
He called on the global community as a whole to work hard to achieve a just and comprehensive peace and enforce worldwide resolutions on the city of Jerusalem, stressing that East Jerusalem is part of the territories occupied in 1967, as recognized in the resolutions of the United Nations itself and supported by the global community.
"The unacceptable violence and incitement exacerbate mistrust between Palestinians and Israelis", she said, noting that intra-Palestinian reconciliation remains critical to restore hope for the future and a political horizon.
"Israel has the right of self-defense and it has the right to protect its border", Pentagon spokesperson Dana White said in response to a question if the Pentagon justifies the civilian casualties.
Avi Benlolo - CEO of the Friends of the Simon Wiesenthal Center - said that "Canada should steadfastly condemn Hamas for inciting violence and for attempting to enter a sovereign nation to carry out terrorism..." Palestinian security sources confirmed the target was a Hamas base, saying there were no reports of injuries.
