Warning against the escalation of the Israeli occupation’s crimes in the wake of the Israeli Minister of Internal Security’s permission to hold the so-called flag march in the
occupied city of Jerusalem, and its passage through Bab al-Amud on May 29, 2022.
The International Commission to Support Palestinians’ Rights (ICSPR) highly appreciates your acclaimed role in serving the aspirations of the peoples of the world, including the State of Palestine.
With reference to the above subject, we are addressing you today to inform you of the provocative and aggressive decision against Jerusalem, its citizens and its sanctities, regarding allowing the so-called flags march.
the International Commission for Supporting Palestinian Rights (ICSPR) sent all the institutions of the international community Among them: UN Special Rapporteur on violence against women, its causes and consequences , UN Special Rapporteur on arbitrary detention , UN Special Rapporteur on torture and other cruel, inhuman or degrading treatment or punishment , Secretary-General of the United Nations ,Secretary-General of the Organization of the League of Arab States , Secretary-General of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation , High Commissioner for Human Rights ,UN Special Rapporteur on human rights in the occupied Palestinian territory , Director of the Red Cross Mission in the Palestinian Territories.
The decision of the “Minister of Internal Security of the Occupation Government” issued on Wednesday, 18/5/2022, regarding allowing the holding of the so-called flag march in Jerusalem on the 29th of this month, is a blatant and aggressive attack on the feelings of Muslims, especially the Palestinians. A decision that inseparable from the open occupation war against Jerusalem, its citizens and its sanctities, and an extension of the continuous Israeli escalation campaigns that threaten to worsen and lose control of the situation.
The decision entails a violation of the sanctity of the holy places, and falls within the framework of the processes of Judaizing Jerusalem and perpetuating its annexation and attempting to abolish any aspect of the Palestinian presence in it, which is a blatant challenge to states’ positions and their condemnation of the occupation policy in Jerusalem, deliberately sabotaging efforts to stop the escalation and calm the situation, an insistence on adhering to the occupation, settlement and Judaization operations, and a rebellion against international law, United Nations resolutions and the international will for peace, and proves that the Israeli occupation chose to escalate against the Palestinian people.
ICSPR appreciates your role in promoting the rights of the Palestinian people and responding to violations against them, and stresses the danger of this decision, and its imminent repercussions that the Palestinian arena will face. Therefore, ICSPR calls on you to take a firm stance to pressure the Israeli occupation government to cancel this decision.
