Information / Baghdad

The Badr Organization said on Saturday that the 30th summit in Tunis faces a historic responsibility that has not been witnessed by any Arab summit before.

"The 30th Arab Summit will be held tomorrow in Tunisia and this summit will face the historic responsibility which is the most difficult in the history of the Arab summits," the organization said in a statement. "The Arab countries attending the summit face extremely dangerous files, Said that "American custody of the Arabs has reached a level that can not be tolerated when the American president (Donald Trump) presented the annexation of the Golan to the Zionist entity and Judaizing it."

"After its previous decision to Judaize Jerusalem and declare it the capital of the usurping entity, the project of historical strife opens the door to an era of wars and serious conflicts, and supports the expansionist approach of the Zionist entity."

"This summit coincides with the annual Land Day in Palestine on March 30th, which symbolizes legality and the right of sacred return at a time when Israel is continuing aggression against the Gaza Strip, targeting civilians with air raids and artillery shelling," she said.

"As the summit coincides with the entry of the Saudi-UAE illegal alliance into Yemen, its fifth year is supported by the United States and its allies, while ignoring the tragedy of Yemen and the historical crimes committed against it, such as killing children and women, bombing hospitals and schools, starvation and displacement," she said.

She pointed out that "the summit with bright glimpses was the exit of Iraq and Syria from the draft of the invasion of the terrorist Da'ashi victorious after all the sectarian killing of the two peoples and the destruction of cities and take millions of the two countries from their homes displaced, and Bahrain's injustice and repression and displacement of the majority claim their legitimate rights, Libya is facing the support of the American-Zionist alliance of the armed gangs that have been sacrificed by the brotherly Libyan people. "

She stressed that "Arab politicians at this summit must feel the plight of the nation and face the most severe onslaught of evil alliances that aim at the lives, fate and dignity of the people. Therefore, Arab leaders must take a decisive stance towards these challenges, not only statements and shy statements. In preparation for the project of a strong front to counter the false guardianship of America and Israel to the governments and peoples of the region, and put an end to America's arrogance and aggressive approach by all means available.

The Arab leaders are called on to warn America to prevent its allies by any means from using Arab oil and Arab capabilities to fight the peoples and spread the approach of atonement, killing, sectarianism and spreading terror. The summit is supposed to invest the nation's energies and human, economic and media capabilities in this confrontation, Revitalize Arab solidarity projects and joint Arab action, rebuild the system of common Arab interests on the basis of equality and cooperation, respect for the sovereignty and independence of each country, and adopt a approach of rapprochement, dialogue and peaceful understanding to resolve Arab-Arab disputes and confront soft war. The fierce attack aimed at the ignorant people and undermine the foundations of the ideological and moral and obliterate the Arab-Islamic identity of the peoples of the media and cultural joint programs. "

"The legitimacy of the Arab regimes today is threatened if it does not place the interests of the nation above all else," the organization's political bureau said. End 25 n
