The League of Arab States intends to develop a plan to counter the recognition of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel by the United States and any other state, a document released after an extraordinary ministerial meeting of the organization in Cairo said on Thursday.

“The organization’s secretariat has been tasked with developing a comprehensive action plan that includes measures that can be used to counter the decision of the United States or any other state to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel or to move the embassy to this city,” the document said.

It is noted that the plan, which must be prepared in two weeks, will include political, judicial and economic measures.

Earlier this week, Egyptian Foreign Minister Sameh Shoukry said that the relocation of the US embassy to Jerusalem and its recognition as the capital of Israel does not change the judicial status of the city and does not abolish the legitimate rights of the Palestinians to their land.

The relocation of the US embassy to Jerusalem on Monday, claimed both by the Israelis and the Palestinians, was met with riots at the Gaza Strip border, which had been suppressed by the Israeli security forces. Since the beginning of this week, over 60 Palestinians died, and over 2,700 others were injured in the Gaza violence.

On Wednesday, Guatemala’s embassy in Israel officially opened in Jerusalem after relocation of its operations from Tel Aviv.

Arab League Secretary-General Ahmed Aboul Gheit said on Thursday that the organization should revise relations with the United States and Guatemala and other countries that may recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel and move their embassies to this city.

I doubt that the Arab League can change facts. The members have lost all their wars against Israel. On 15 May 1948, the then seven Arab League members coordinated an invasion of what was by then the former British Mandate, marking the start of the 1948 Arab–Israeli War. The Arab League lost the 48 war and Israel was created. They made a “population exchange” with Israel. Now they complain about the results. The Muslim Arab League countries must start to accept historical results. Only their Muslim Arab faith prevents them to accept that Muslim Arab League lands can get lost… Read more »

Efficiency of the influence of the Arab League in Syria… “Why isn’t there an investigation on Saddam Hussein’s killing? An entire Arab leadership is killed and hanged on the gallows! Why? In the future, it will be your turn too! Indeed!” – Muhammar Gaddafi @Arab-League summit, 2008. A fact is that the Arab-League should rename itself the Dictator’s League. Actually, all countries out of the Arabic peninsula should take example on what is happening in Maghreb : many many many schools have opened where your 1st language will be Tamazight instead of Arab, then kids learn French and English… There… Read more »

Susan, our Abu Bakr does not know what a Munafiq and his punishment on the 1. Day is. He pretends, he knows the Noble Quran but does not know that all nations of the book are accepted by the Lord.

Abu Bark at the Moon, Na’al ‘dine bebek! (this means : “I fück the religion of your ancestors”). Oh, BTW, did I told you that DGSI has received your IP from the Danes as AMN site is based in Denmark? This means that Interpol has your name and picture, so have ALL intelligence services! Who is the moron who grilled himself all over the planet? You’re in the light baby, you’re monitored from all sides, all your moves are under watch! I just hope you to do a bad move, so we’ll come to get you! To be frank, I… Read more »

No virgins for idiots that throw away their lives. They get wiser after death. Because 72 grapes are a symbol of wisdom. p.s. There’s growing evidence that many words in the Quran are Syriac or Aramaic. The Quran says martyrs going to heaven will get ‘hur,’ and the word was taken by commentators to mean ‘virgins’. But in Aramaic, hur meant ‘white’ and was commonly used to mean ‘white grapes.’ Christoph Luxenberg, who pioneered this research, noted that grapes made more sense in the context because the Quran compares the hur to crystal and pearls, and because contemporary accounts have… Read more »
