From the official Wafa news agency:
The Permanent Representative of the State of Palestine to the United Nations, Riyad Mansour, told the Security Council that the question of Palestine is just and the Middle East cannot be addressed without talking about the issue of Palestine.
“Efforts to downplay the devastating effects on the entire region as a result of the uprooting of the Palestinian people more than 70 years ago, and to overlook the practices of the occupying Power to this day, serve neither peace nor security in the region,” Mansour added.
Ambassador Mansour spoke to ambassadors and representatives of the countries of the world of the absolute immunity accorded to Israel and the double standards in the world of the state of sorrow and the disruption of confidence in the international system, especially among young people who lose hope in international law and fairness.
If you read a little between the lines, this is a plea by the PLO for relevance. They are very upset that the Gulf states are no longer looking at a Palestinian state as being a prerequisite for dealing directly with Israel.
His pretense on defending international law is amusing, considering that even “moderate” Palestinians publicly say that terrorism against Israeli Jews are acceptable under international law.
“We warn against creating a fertile environment for a religious war in Palestine because of the acts and inflammatory statements carried out by Israel, including violations in the Haram al-Sharif by extremists supported by the army in a clear contempt for the sanctity of the place and its historical status and the status of religious sites and sensitivity surrounding the site, all contribute to fueling religious sentiment and thus the risk of a religious war. “
