The Secretary-General of the League of Arab States, Ahmed Aboul Gheit, said that the Palestinians have suffered a lot, but they have not been defeated and will not surrender.
Aboul Gheit added during the session to discuss the Palestinian issue, Sunday, within the activities of the Munich Security Conference, that “if the Palestinians decide something about their future, then all Arab countries will support them, rejecting what is being raised about the disappearance of the Palestinian issue.”
Aboul Gheit warned, that the alternative to the two-state solution is known, which is the one-state solution that includes two peoples, knowing that the Palestinian people will be more numerous in the near future, and therefore this state will not be democratic, as the Israelis will not be satisfied with treating the Palestinians as equal citizens to them, This means that it will be a state based on the outdated apartheid system.
“We should be careful to avoid such a scenario by working quickly to salvage the two-state solution.”
The Secretary-General of the League of Arab States stressed that the Arab peace initiative represents the foundations of a peaceful settlement with Israel from the Arab point of view, and it is a comprehensive initiative based on the principle of land for peace, presented from 2002.
Aboul Gheit pointed out that “the positions of the Palestinians during the various rounds of negotiations with the Israelis reflected a tremendous amount of rationality and moderation, as they accepted a demilitarized state, and they accepted the presence of international forces between them and Israel to reassure the latter, and they even accepted that these forces be from NATO or from the states United States.
Aboul Gheit pointed out that he is concerned about the talk of some Israelis about the removal of Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas as a problem or obstacle to peace, noting that the Israeli representative to the United Nations expressed this explicitly during the Security Council session held a few days ago to discuss the American plan.
He explained that “this approach is very dangerous and may represent a repeat of the Israelis’ experience with (Yasser) Arafat.”
