New York, 17 Dzulhijjah 1436/30 September 2015 (MINA) – The Emir of Qatar Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad al-Thani held the international community partly responsible for the terrorism perpetrated by the Israeli occupation in Occupied Jerusalem, pushing for urgently ceasing aggressions an al-Aqsa and lifting the siege on Gaza.

Addressing the opening meeting of the 70th session of the General Assembly at the UN headquarters in New York, the Emir said that persistent violations of al-Aqsa Mosque’s sanctity showed the absence of Israel’s will for peace.

He also said that ultra-orthodox fundamentalist and nationalist elements had taken control of Israeli policy, The Palestinian Information Center (PIC) quoted by Mi’raj Islamic News Agency (MINA) as reporting, Tuesday (30/9).

“Look at what is happening in Occupied Jerusalem,” the Emir added. “They do this in order to desecrate other people’s sanctities, occupy their land and settle on it.”

“Isn’t this tantamount to religious fundamentalism? Isn’t this violence an act of terrorism carried out by radical religious forces?” he wondered.

The Emir reiterated, in a message to the international community, that ongoing failure to find a permanent and just solution for the Palestinian cause is a scar on the face of mankind.

“The international community is failing in what is less than a fair peace process, it did not even succeed in forcing the reconstruction of the Gaza Strip in the aftermath of the aggression.”

“We are providing aid to Gaza Strip until the end of implementing our commitment, but we wonder: What happened to the (Gaza reconstruction) conference and its decisions,” asked the Emir.

“The international community, represented by the Security Council, must assume its responsibilities, by taking a firm stance forcing Israel to comply with deliverables of peace, namely, halting of all forms of settlement activity in the occupied Palestinian territories, lifting the unjust siege on the Gaza Strip and to be committed to implementing the resolutions of the international legitimacy that recognize the Palestinian people’s right to regain their legitimate national rights, and establish an independent Palestinian State according to 1967- borders,” the Emir further stated.(T/P008/R03)
