Arab League Still Firmly Rejecting Israel as Jewish State

By: JTA

The Arab League refused to recognize Israel as a Jewish state in the framework of current peace talks with the Palestinians, as per Israel’s demand.

On Sunday, Arab League foreign ministers released a resolution at a meeting in Cairo that supported the decision by Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas.

“The council of the Arab League confirms its support for the Palestinian leadership in its effort to end the Israeli occupation over Palestinian lands, and emphasizes its rejection of recognizing Israel as a ‘Jewish state,’” the resolution said.

The demand, the statement said, “aims to annul the right of return and compensation for Palestinian refugees.”

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has made the signing of a peace agreement contingent on the recognition of Israel as a Jewish state, the first prime minister to do so.

The U.S.-backed peace talks are scheduled to end on April 29. Abbas has said he will not allow for an extension of the nine-month process.

Abbas is scheduled to meet in Washington with President Obama on March 17. Obama met with Netanyahu last week.

  1. Ronnie Pleet says:

    They do not want an Arab state they only want Israel

  2. Who cares what the arab legue claims..Israel exists and there is nothing they can do about it! God Bless Israel!

  3. Arab league can not be more benevolent whit Israel than Obama administration. Psaki said before that the Palestinians need not recognize Israel as Jewish state. Psaki confirms the Obama/Kerry doctrine. Rape the allies and love the enemies. America is disfunctional and the American administration is not a rational actor.

  4. God bless Israel, long live Israel.

  5. Lani Lowell says:

    So preposterous to even consider them as a peace partner. Where do they think they will go with this? ESPECIALLY since their missile back up plan just failed???

  6. How much Israel conceded lands, released those prisoners, and freeze and uprooted settlements in the name of peace negotiation were all useless then. In this case Israel should continue with their plans on settlements for this is God’s plan for peace, a victory for Israel. Isaiah 60:12-14.

  7. Politics, one day God will rid the world of politics. There will only be peace for Israel.

  8. Eduardo Mazo says:

    a wild tribe think they are Pharaoh of Egypt refused to release the Jews to become state as origin not like them a wandering.

  9. Alan Kardon says:

    So we are nowhere new. Except Israel released terrorist for nothing.

  10. To expect otherwise is an exercise in futility that only the likes of POTUS Obama and the cowardly Kerry would pursue and attempt an imposition on Israel…any islamic that would do such a thing signs his/her own death warrant. The real solution is so much easier: "They Must Go!"
