Kuwait parliament speaker Marzouq AlGhanim said Tuesday AlQuds Waqf (endowment) Fund’s Board of Trustees was playing “an important” role in confronting Israeli plans aimed at undermining Palestinians and Arabs in Jerusalem.
Kuwait parliament members are showing keen support for the Palestinian question in all international parliamentary conferences because they believed in its just causes, AlGhanim said in a speech before a meeting of the Fund’s Board of Trustees. AlGhanim said desperation should not find a way “to our hearts,” because victory of the Palestinians would be achieved.
The speaker condemned the Israeli systematic aggression in AlQuds and occupied Palestinian territories. “We are not against any heavenly faith, rather encourage peaceful coexistence among religions.
We are against a discriminatory entity which confiscate the land and displace people,” said AlGhanim. “Our objective is to oust the zionist entity from the InterParliamentary Union … I am confident we can succeed in our mission but I can’t promise a date, but this will be the biggest political blow to oust this entity from the world’s second largest organization after the UN,” he said.
Prince Turki AlFaisal, Chairman of Board of Trustees, expressed gratitude for His Highness the Amir Sheikh Sabah AlAhmad AlJaber AlSabah for his relentless support of the Palestinian cause.
Prince Turki, who cited Saudi Arabia’s historic backing of the Palestinian people, said people were eagerly awaiting to see Jerusalem as capital of the Palestinian State.
Mohammad Shatayya, representative of Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas, said support of charity groups and AlQuds University, as well as renovation of houses would contribute to protection of Arab, Islamic and Christian identity of AlQuds.
Shatayya, who thanked Kuwait, Saudi Arabia and many Arab countries for their political and economic support, warned against considering Jerusalem the capital of Israel.
