In his speech, he called on the international community to get involved in order to “defend” the Arab residents of Jerusalem who are dealing with “illegal” activities from Israel “that oppose international law and human rights.”
Hamdallah’s call to take action against Israel urged international pressure so as to end the “occupation” and establish an independent Palestinian state along the 1949 Armistice lines, with Jerusalem as its “eternal capital.”

He accused Israel of trying to wipe out the “Arab national identity” of Jerusalem, which is in fact the ancient 3,000-year-old capital of the Jewish people. Continue Reading »
