Algerian diplomat slams “inaction” towards Israeli assaults on Al-Aqsa, Palestine
Algeria's ambassador to the United Nations, Nazir Al-Arbawi, slammed what he termed as the Al-Quds Committee's inaction toward the Israeli brutal assaults on Al-Aqsa and all of Palestine.
Algeria strongly denounced what it called the inaction and abandonment of some Arab and Islamic organizations and bodies in the face of Israeli ongoing assaults on the Palestinian people, most notably the occupation's attack on Al-Aqsa Mosque.
Commenting on this issue, Algeria's ambassador to the United Nations, Nazir Al-Arbawi, stated during the deliberations ahead of the Al-Quds Committee’s meeting that the situation in Palestine, particularly in Al-Quds, has become too grave for it to simply be met with courtesies and formalities from the Al-Quds Committee, which is headed by Morocco.
Al-Arbawi went on to say that the Al-Quds Committee, which was established under the supervision of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation, has only met twice in the last twenty years, the most recent being in 2014, emphasizing the importance of convening the Al-Quds Committee as soon as possible to assume the responsibility entrusted to it in defending Al-Quds.
During these deliberations, an amended version of the project was agreed upon and presented in its final form, after consulting with the Omani delegation, the current president of the Arab group, and the representative of Palestine, Al-Arbawi stressed.
According to Al-Arbawi, this Moroccan maneuver raised concerns about the country's intentions, as well as the suspicious behavior coming from a country that chairs the Committee.
“Morocco is expected to defend the just Palestinian cause and Al-Quds, rather than the other way around,” he added.
“The mere invitation of the Al-Quds Committee to meet in defense of Al-Aqsa, Al-Quds, and Palestine is inconceivable unless there is a premeditated intention aimed at avoiding and preventing the issuance of a statement condemning the Zionist entity's practices and violations in Al-Aqsa, Al Quds, and Palestine as a whole”, the top Algerian diplomat concluded.
It is worth mentioning that Algeria severed diplomatic ties with Rabat last August, as Morocco is the only Arab country in North Africa that supports “Israel’s” admission to the African union as an observer, stressing that his country "has been patient with the incessant hostile acts carried out by Morocco".
Morocco is the fourth Arab country to agree to normalization with the Israeli occupation in 2020, after the UAE, Bahrain, and Sudan.
