Gemayel calls for condemning Israeli plan for Jerusalem

Share:

Lebanese former president and Phalange Party leader Amin Gemayel called on the Lebanese cabinet to convene quickly and condemn Israel for its intent to announce Jerusalem a capital for the Jewish people, according to a statement issued by Gemayel’s press office on Saturday.

“Such a step defies all religions and the entire world, particularly the Vatican as well as the UN. It must stimulate the national-unity government to overcome its absurd disputes and meet to take a position that would prevent this,” Gemayel said, adding that such an Israeli action would put an end to Arab-Israeli peace negotiations.

Gemayel’s statement comes after Israeli right-wing Knesset member called for changing the text in the Israeli basic law which describes occupied Jerusalem as Israel’s capital into the capital of the Jewish people.

Israeli newspapers reported on Friday that the Israeli ministerial committee for legislation would discuss once again early next week the proposal submitted in this regard by Knesset member Zevulun Orlev.

Zevulun introduced his bill for the first time more than two years ago and the Knesset approved it in its first reading, but the ministerial committee for legislation declined to put it to the vote.

Meanwhile, preacher of the Aqsa Mosque Sheikh Ismail Nawahda warned on Friday that the Mosque is exposed to real dangers threatening its existence and called on the Muslim nation to defend it by all means.

The preacher also denounced the Israeli occupation authority for demolishing Palestinian homes, property and holy sites, especially a Mosque in Tubas city on Thursday.

  1. Some of you Lebanese need to shut your damn mouths. And then you always complain about others getting into Lebanese politics bla bla bla. Jerusalem has nothing to do with Lebanon. You should worry about Syria and Iran arming a trained a proxy army getting ready to take complete control of your country by force once the indictments come in.

      Yury,
      You should practice what you preach too. You should keep your nose out of Lebanese politics too. You should worry about your leaders getting tried for war crimes before you worry about The indictment.

      1. I can’t wait until the Wikileaks documents are released and we see what America was saying to Israel. I am sure
        we will hear about how the US was pleading with Israel to follow a settlement freeze, trying to politically bribe Israel to follow international law. It’s incredible how much pressure Israel has on America. As Gideon Levy of Israel would say, it’s hard to know if Israel or America is the superpower. Partially, thanks to Israel, America has been seriously damaged. One major reason America went to war in Iraq was because many pro-Isreali Americans kept pushing for it. That did not help America. They have no problem using America for their interests and then tell the Lebanese not to interfere?

    3. First of all, East Jerusalem is an important place for Catholics and Greek Orthodox and all Christians, not just Jews.
      Second, East Jerusalem is not recognized by one single country in this world as Israeli except Israel. Under international law, East Jerusalem is occupied. The US doesn’t recognize it. It’s clear that is a violation of international law. UN Security Council resolutions based on international law have ruled against Israel, but Israel feels it is above the law, above other nations and other religions, so it should do what it wants international law be damned, but then they want us to care about them for being Jewish but not care about the feelings of Muslims or Christians or international law and other countries of the world. I am sorry, but this attitude will not work or stand. You are destabilizing the region. European leaders feel the same way. Some Israelis do, too. We need peace, dividing Jerusalem, you to have a Palestinian state there and not to keep kicking the Palestinians from their homes like others did to your ancestors.

    5. A friggin russian in the Middle East go back to your real home and STFU. Your family never stepped one foot into the Middle East EVER. You just came for the free house and free land on the backs of someone else. Typical Israeli beggar.

    6. We will never shut our mouth for any usurper of any land. Aren’t you supposed to defend Russia you traitor? But NO you will come to Israel’s rescue because you are a Jew. Get it through your stupid egg head being a Jew does not give you the right to Jerusalem neither to be Israeli. You are born a Russian Jew then you are a Russian NOT an Israeli. Damn FOOL.

    Role reversal. Lebanese people are portrayed as serving Sri Lanki and Filipino patrons and subject to the daily humiliation that comes with the job.
    I love it. I hope Lebanese can learn to be more human toward their poor servants.

    2. As vocal as I am against maltreatment of ANY worker, after seeing the sketch, I tell you, wulak ma facharo on three accounts. First we will never become servants to anyone and second if we were servants we will beat the crap out of the master/mistress who would treat us that way (after all we are Lebanese) 😛 and third Syrians are not 100 times better than Lebanese. WULAK MA FACHARO MIIT MARRA… 😛 LOL

        Funny video, but Hannibal I have to disagree with you. Syrian maids are 100 times better than Lebanese maids as depicted in the video, and why wouldn’t they be, they are cut out for it!
