Al-Qathafi questions the why the Arab states are not more united
Libya-Regional, Politics, 3/24/2005
The second open session for the Arab summit on Wednesday was limited to two speeches by the Libyan leader Muammar al-Qathafi and the secretary general of the UN Kofi Annan.
Al-Qathafi's speech before the summit repeated his call for the establishment of one state that includes both of Palestine and Israel. He added that such a solution can be maintained at the hands of the new generation of the Palestinians and the Israelis, describing that the Palestinians dealt with their cause in stupidity "because they failed to establish their state on lands that had been under their control since 1948."
Meantime, JANA reported that "The Leader explained in his speech at the Arab summit today that expelling the Palestinian people and occupying their land, and their fight to return are the causes underlining what is going on in Palestine whether it is called terrorism or otherwise. He pointed out that the enemies of the Palestinians consider what is going on as terrorism, where as the Palestinian consider themselves martyrs, and wage a sacred struggle, and indeed the most sacred struggle. The Leader said; If you want to get rid of terrorism in Palestine, you must be serious, and then it would be guaranteed, i.e. no bomb will go off in Palestine, if the Palestinian people return to their land, and restore their rights, especially so as their cause has become a sacred one and recognized by the whole world."
Al-Qathafi indicated that terrorism in the Islamic world is not because of poverty or the absence of democracy, rather the feeling of repression, warning that such oppression would "bring up another Osama Bin Laden."
Meantime, JANA reported that:"The Leader of the Revolution expressed his profound concern over the future of the Arabs in the new world map, where the nature of the era is imposing itself, and in which the national state is withering away, and all its national standards are to be replaced by new union standards, thereby the establishment of major spaces in each of which a group of national states melts away such as the European Union, and the African Union, NAFTA, and like what is happening in Latin America, the SAARC association in South Asia, ASEAN and the CIS comprising the independent states, which used to be called the Soviet Union.
"In his address on behalf of the Arab Leaders taking part in the 17th Arab Summit held in Algeria, the Leader stressed that there is no safe shore for the Arab ship to lay anchor, in the future, in the new world map, since the world is forming into spaces, each of which will turn into a state with one army, one security, one currency, one central bank, one market, and one negotiating power, one export and import, i.e. "One identity". The Leader explained that for every one of these spaces, it must have a criteria of a space, wondering where are we (Arabs) in the new world map?," JANA reported.
Before al-Qathafi, the UN chief Kofi Annan made a speech in which he said he got a commitment from the Syrian president Bashar al-Assad to full withdrawal from Lebanon.
