By JT – May 24,2018 – JORDAN TIMES

AMMAN — State Minister for Media Affairs Mohammad Momani on Thursday condemned the Israeli government’s announcement of 2,500 new settlement units in the occupied Palestinian territories, the Jordan News Agency, Petra, reported.

Momani, who is also the government’s spokesperson, stressed that Israeli settlement activities are illegal and absolutely rejected as they pose a direct threat to peace and challenge the will of the international community and relevant international resolutions, the minister also emphasised that the entire international community rejects settlements and considers them illegal, in addition to Security Council Resolution 2334, which clearly reflects the international community’s stand on this regard.

Momani also condemned Israeli unilateral measures aimed at changing the status quo in the occupied Palestinian territories, especially the settlement activities, which constitute a systematic undermining of the prospects for peace and a threat to security and stability in the region.

  1. 2500 new settlements. And this short article is the only response. Yes, rather hopeless, is it not? I hesitate to say it (because it is up to the Palestinians do see what they want to do), but: Is it not time to forget the two state solution and admit that the Israelis managed to destroy it with all their settlements? Just push for a one state solution, of course with equal rights for all. Arabs should have a united plan with of course the Palestinians agreeing to it. And then they should enforce it with all their financial and economic might. Unity is strength, even without nuclear weapons.

  2. You can dream on— but Arab ( tribes) tradition or DNA has shown that all Arab tribes can not be united— Allah describe in Holy Quran that most Arab leaders do not trust each other— mist of them are hypocricy Q.3:109.

    Have you ever seen Arab united till to day?
    I have never seen Arab nations are united—
    Eventhough Islam cannot unite Arab converserely Islam devide Muslim many sects

    What do we hope from Arab Muslim?

    Read these verses Rafiq— you will understand well about Arab Muslim.

    Allah describe clearly:
    “Remember the grace of Allah to you when you first [period of ignorance] hostile hostility, then God unites hearts, then God becomes for you because ni’mat those brothers, and you have to be on the brink of hell, ( killing one another ) then God save you from it. Thus Allah explains His verses to you, that you get a guide.” QS. 3: 103.

    And among those Arab who are around you there are hypocrites, and among the people of Madinah as well. They are adamant on hypocrisy. You do not know them. We know them. We will chastise them twice, then they shall be driven to a terrible punishment (in the Hereafter). QS 9;101.

    This hostile culture to this day is still happening in the Arab countries because of different religious beliefs as Sunni Muslim (Wahhabi-Salafi) and Shia Muslims, Ahmadis, Christians, Jews, Muslims Secular-democracy etc

    The Messenger of Allah came to the rescue of the Arabs to unite the Arabs no longer on consanguinity, but the religion of Islam.

    So most Arab clerics and political leaders are so hypocrite, no doubt about it, this is true fact. Arab kill Another Arab is usual tradition —no suprise.

    Rafiq— because you live Arab tradition for years I see your behaviuor like Arab ? Not the Westren white tradition. Maybe you do not realize it— other people can see it.

    I wish you a blessed and peaceful Ramadhan

    • In the early days of course the Arabs united, that is why and how they were able to spread Islam far and wide.

      • Yes I think before The book of Hadith Muslim are united but after 200 years later, because of hadith—divided Muslim many setcs— till to day—

        Because of Hadith The extremist Muslim persecute Ahmadiyya, Christuan and Shiah

        Because of Hadith Muslim became poverty

        Because of Hadith the image of Islam is primitive style.

        Because of Hadidt the extremist Muslim persecute Blasphemer, apostate, gay lesbian and infidel.

        Because of Hadith Most Muslim become Syrick :
        They kiss and cry STONE KAABA—STONE Asward
        They worship IDOL Muslim Bukhari instead of Allah alone
        They pray Taraweeh more than Wajjb Shalat 5 times a day
        They associete the name of Prophets with Allah while praying.

        Very sad indeed—-Hopefully God guide Rafiq to the right path of Islam. Amen

        All love ❤️
        I wish you all a bkessed and happy Ramadhan.

      • That is why Allah has appointed Imam Mahdi the Promised Messiah to correct the wrong interpretations that has seeped in. When will Somi understand that? You should listen to the lectures of the Khalifa of this time with an open heart and learn its meaning and join together in unity. As we believe that Allah has appointed the Khalifa of this time only by trying to understand his guidance and following it there will be peace and unity. (may be not in our generation, but we can work towards it).

      • in reverse order:

        I am not aware of anyone who associates the name of prophets while praying. We pray FOR the prophet and not TO him. Do you not pray ‘darood shareef’? What is wrong with that? (‘

        Taraweeh. Yes, it is not an obligatory prayer. But why complain if someone wants to do voluntary prayers? You do not need to do it if you do not like to.

        Worship Idol Bukhari: We do not ‘worship’ Hadith from Bukhari or any other. We learn from those that are in accordance with the Qur’an and ignore the ones that are not. If you are not sure about which one to follow ask our learned Imams who study in Islamic University for years (or ultimately ask the Khalifa of this time who is the ultimate guide).

        Stone of Kaaba. Shirk would be to pray TO the stone. No one does that. If you touch it because Mohammad (peace and blessings of Allah be on him) had held it in his hand there is no big harm. Shirk is in the mind.
