Arab League rejects so-called peace plan for Mideast

Pan-Arab bloc rules out US president’s so-called ‘Deal of the Century’ from consideration

The Arab League on Saturday announced that it rejected U.S. President Donald Trump’s so-called peace plan for the Middle East.

In a statement following an extraordinary ministry-level session requested by Palestine, the pan-Arab body said it would not consider the proposed plan announced last week in Washington.

According to the statement that followed the meeting held in Egypt’s capital Cairo, the plan would not lead to peace, but would rather be an obstacle in the 30-year peace process.
Asserting that the “unfair” plan did not meet the minimum rights and aspirations of the Palestinian people, the statement announced that the members agreed not to cooperate with Washington in its implementation.

It added that Israel would be solely responsible for the consequences of such policies, warning Tel Aviv against any unilateral actions on the plan.

Egyptian Foreign Minister Sameh Shoukry announced full support during the meeting for the establishment of an independent Palestinian State with its capital in East Jerusalem, according to the 1967 borders.

On Tuesday, Trump announced his so-called plan to end the Israeli-Palestinian dispute at the White House alongside Netanyahu, with no Palestinian officials present.
During the event, Trump referred to Jerusalem as “Israel’s undivided capital.”

The so-called “Deal of the Century” unilaterally annuls previous UN resolutions on the Palestinian issue and suggests giving Israel almost everything they have been demanding.

    • When will you learn some diplomacy? Instead of saying ‘your mind was brainwashed’ you could have said ‘I acknowledge that with your years of experience in Arab countries you have become sort of an export in Middle East Affairs’. Right? – (while my own knowledge of the Middle East is sort of ‘Kushner-style’ because I read some books, may be not 25, but still …) Right?

      • I do not know how to convince you Rafiq/- you still support terorist idea of Islam like: Hamas, Iran, etc.

        Isreal treat Ahmadiyyah kindly and fairly. Jews cannot treat Hamas like Israel treat Ahmadiyyah—

        You should know why!!

      • Please stop saying that I support terrorist ideas ! That is absolutely wrong !!! Because in one case Israel is treating us (Ahmadiyya) well that does not mean we should ignore their human rights violations …

      • As long you support Hamas it means you support terorist. Hamas is Islamic terorist who want kill Jews and PLO too.
