The American Veto -Arrogance, Violation of UN Charter and Principles

The Palestine National Council stressed, in a statement, issued Tuesday, that disgrace and shame was brought on US after its veto on the Egyptian- drafted resolution which affirmed « that any decisions and actions which purport to have altered the character, status or demographic composition of the Holy City of Jerusalem, as an occupied Palestinian city, have no legal effect, are null and void and must be rescinded in compliance with relevant resolutions of the Security Council. »
The National Council condemned the US disgraceful position at the Security Council, in which the US, as a permanent member did not fulfill its responsibility in maintaining world peace and stability. 14 of the 15 Security Council members vote for the annulment of US recognition of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel. Thus the United States was further isolated over Trump’s decision.
The National Council stressed that the arrogance, violation practiced by the US against the Palestinian people’s rights, against UN Charter, aims, and resolutions, against international community will not change the clear reality, legal, political and historical status of Jerusalem as an occupied Palestinian city, the statement said.
The National Council stressed that the US, with its position, bears direct responsibility for instability and anarchy in the region, giving green light, in that way, to Israel’s occupation army to continue its killing policies, which cause Palestinian civilian casualties, including among children, women and crippled people as it happened with martyr Ibrahim Abu Thraya in Gaza.
The National Council said, “we are the Palestinians and the whole Arab nation, are at a distinctive moment, bearing main responsibility in confronting aggression against the Islamic and Christian holy places.
The National Council pointed out that the US sponsorship of Middle East peace process led to Israel’s annexation of large territories of our Palestinian state through creating settlements, practicing its systematic policies of human rights violations of the Palestinian people, enacting racist laws, adopting decisions to alter the demographic character of the city of Jerusalem and rest of occupied lands.
The National Council called upon world parliaments to declare their clear position in defense of principles of international law, UN Charter and holding Israel’s Knesset responsible for its false claim of democracy, emphasizing the continuation of challenging the US shameful decision at all levels.
The National Council saluted the steadfastness and courage of our people in confronting the American Israeli dual aggression, emphasizing that Jerusalem is the eternal capital of State of Palestine, renewing its firm standing with the Palestinian leadership of president Mahmoud Abbas, in all its resolutions and measures taken in defense of Islamic and Christian holy sites, and our national project aimed of establishing an independent state with Jerusalem as its capital and return of refugees to their homes

The PNC represents the supreme authority of the Palestinian people in all their places of residence. It sets PLO policies and plans to achieve the goals of the Palestinian people for self-determination, the establishment of an independent Palestinian state with Jerusalem as its capital and the return of refugees to their homes.After Al-Nakba (catastrophe) of 1948, the Arab Higher Committee for Palestine, headed by Haj Amin Al-Husseini, decided to call for the convening of a Palestine National Council which met in Gaza in 1October 1948, which was the first Palestinian legislative authority to be established in the Arab state of Palestine.
