MK Danon: Stop Arab MKs from Joining Qatar Anti-Israel Conference

Ma’ariv reported that MK Danny Danon (Likud) requested that the Knesset Ethics Committee ban Arab MKs from going to the “International Conference for the Defense of Occupied Jerusalem,” to be held in Doha, Qatar next week.

“The conference will include many haters of Israel and therefore the Arab MKs are guaranteed front row seats,” Danon stressed. “The State of Israel should defend itself, and not allow those who take advantage of democracy to attack her from the inside.”

Danon said the Arab MKs are going the way of terror-supporter, former MK Azmi Bishara, and the Knesset must forbid them to participate in forums that have the potential for planning anti-Israel initiatives.

The Qatar News Agency reported that some 350 representatives from Arab, Islamic and other countries will discuss “the legal status of Jerusalem before and after the Israeli  occupation, the reality and the future of Jerusalem under occupation, and the status of the holy places under international law.”

The Qatar Tribune reported that Arab League Assistant Secretary-General for Palestine and the Occupied Arab Territories’ Affairs Ambassador Mohamed Subeih on Thursday said he was confident of the success of the International Conference for the Defence of Al Quds (Jerusalem), scheduled to kick off in Doha on Sunday.

Subeih, who arrived in Doha on Thursday as the head of a high-profile delegation of the Arab League general secretariat to prepare for the conference, said that the Palestinian issue in general, and the issue of Al Quds in particular, are at the top of Qatari policy agenda.

“Preparation for the conference began a long time ago. Qatar and the Arab League general secretariat headquarters constantly consulted each other and coordinated their efforts to ensure success of the conference. It will help provide real support to the city of Al Quds”, he said, adding, “This has been a pledge on part of Qatar and its policy.” “The large number of people participating in the conference demonstrates the interest in the Al Quds issue. The participants realise the gravity of the legal violations, forgery and counterfeiting constantly done by the Israeli occupiers,” Subeih said.

The conference will focus on the topics of “Jerusalem and International Law,” “History of Jerusalem,” “Jerusalem and Settlements,” “Israeli Violations and Jerusalem and Civil Society Organizations.”

Jerusalem and International Law will see discussions on the legal status of Jerusalem before and after the Israeli occupation, the reality and the future of Jerusalem under occupation and the status of the holy places under international law.
