Supporting the Palestinian people is one of the most important duties
Fadlullah: The war of genocide the Palestinians are facing is a Jewish, Arab and American responsibility

Date: 02/12/2007 A.D 22 Zul Kaada 1428 H

The Religious Authority, Sayyed Muhammad Hussein Fadlullah stressed that the tragic reality the Palestinians are living and the barbaric and brutal occupation that does not stop practicing serious aggressions against them, are the responsibility of the Jewish and the Arabs. His Eminence also noticed that the Arabs are about to hand in the Palestinians to Israel in order to wash their hands of the blood of this veracious people.

His Eminence asked the United Nations and all the organizations of human rights the following question: Do the barbaric killings and collective punishments that are made against the Palestinians agree with the principles of human rights and international law? The Sayyed also indicated that the peace conference held in Annapolis has given Israel, with an Arab consensus, a free hand to impose collective sanctions against the Palestinians, calling for supporting the Palestinian people with all means because that is considered one of the most important duties.

The Sayyed also issued a statement in which he condemned the Israeli Supreme Court that has upheld the Israeli governmental decision to reduce electricity supplies to Gaza strip … H. E. said:

At a time the Arabs return from Annapolis bowing their heads before the enemy's Prime Minister who looked proud because it is possible to think that this group was applauding for Israel, the Supreme Israeli Court was upholding the decision of the Israeli government to reduce liquid fuel supplies to Gaza strip and delaying the decision to reduce electricity supplies, while ignoring all this large quantity of liquid fuel that comes out from the Arab countries and goes to the Western and other countries…

At a time we know that the democracy the enemy is talking about is but a new form of racism because the enemy does not call for this democracy except in what serves the Israeli interests, we notice that the Israeli courts represent the judicial echo of the security and political decisions that are pronounced by the Israeli officials or the Israeli government. Thus, the Israeli judiciary is not more than a beautifying means to the operations of subjugation, killings and sieges that are practiced by the Israeli authorities. Consequently, the rulings of the Israeli courts fall in line with the Israeli acts which include widening the sphere of settlement and the separating wall, as well as judaizing Jerusalem, taking hold of the water resources, continuously humiliating the Palestinians on the cross points, shelling randomly and imposing all kinds of sanctions against the civilians... despite all that, the enemy tries to claim that it is acting according to the legal and judicial logic!

This tragic reality the Palestinians are living and the barbaric and brutal occupation that is still practicing all serious aggressions while ignoring all norms of international law, are the responsibility of the Arabs and the Jewish because the Arabs are about to hand in the Palestinians to Israel. This is because the Arabs seek to liberate themselves from the Palestinians cause and shake off their hands of all what is related to Palestine, as well as to wash their hands of the blood of this veracious people to the level that we listen everyday to their "achievements" in confiscating weapons and ammunition which ought to be delivered to the Palestinian people to defend themselves. Thus, instead of supporting this people with all means of power and help in providing them with the fuel supplies in the coming cold winter or paving the way for their pilgrims to pass instead of confronting death and diseases on the crossing points that were turned into new prisons for the Palestinians.

Faced by this tragedy that targets the Palestinian society in its innermost, we ask the Security Council of the United Nations and all the human institutions and organizations the following question: Do all the massacres and wars of genocide against the Palestinians agree with the human rights and with the most basic humanitarian concepts? Is the Annapolis Conference just an international demonstration for giving Israel the full power to besiege the Palestinians and impose on them a reality that is similar to a war of genocide, with an Arab consensus and Islamic silence on the level of the mother organization – The Islamic Conference Organization!

We call upon those in the Muslim and Arab world, who still have conscience, to hasten to support the Palestinian people with all media, political and financial and other means. That is because protecting these people and supporting their steadfastness is one of the most important duties, especially in this critical and dangerous stage that the Arab and Muslim world is passing through, especially that they are faced by an unjust and arrogant world that does not have in its heart human feelings or principles of humanity, while it waves with human rights here and there.
