Lebanese President Michel Sleiman addresses the 66th session of the United Nations General Assembly at UN headquarters on Wednesday, Sept. 21, 2011.
Lebanese President Michel Sleiman has vigorously supported the Palestinian Authority’s proposal for full United Nations membership as a state.

“It is important to underscore the rightful Palestinian efforts aiming at earning the recognition of the state of Palestine and its full membership to the United Nations,” Sleiman told the UN General Assembly on Wednesday.

“Lebanon will back these efforts in order for the latter to succeed with the coordination and cooperation of brotherly and friendly countries,” AFP quoted him as saying.

Lebanon is a nonpermanent member of the UN Security Council and currently holds the presidency of the Council.

Lebanon’s support has come as acting Palestinian Authority (PA) Chief Mahmoud Abbas is planning to submit a formal bid for UN membership for a Palestinian state based on the pre-1967 borders at the General Assembly.

Sleiman, however, cautioned that recognizing the Palestinian state does not give all the rights back to the Palestinian people and therefore could not be considered as a final solution, reports said.

He stressed that the final solution should guarantee the right of return to the Palestinian refugees, and rejected any form of naturalisation of the Palestinians.

The Palestinian right of return is a principled political position stating that Palestinian refugees, both first-generation refugees and their descendants, have a right to return, and a right to the property they or their forebears left or which they were forced to leave in 1948 and then 1967.

Elsewhere in his remarks, Sleiman stated that Lebanon has the right to liberate its occupied lands using all possible and legal means from Israel.

He also explained to the UN body the dangers Lebanon is facing because of land mines placed by Israel in his country during the 33-day war, and called on the General Assembly to condemn these criminal acts and demanded compensation for the Lebanese people suffering because of this atrocity.

Something to ponder about…
For who not sees or who’s eyes are still closes. IOA has become exactly and even worse than those, they feared and hated once themselves. Using the same atrocities, policies to oppress, ethnically cleanse and eradicate human beings. Creating a new Shoah (Holocaust) for the Palestinians in 1948 with Al Nakba, and sustaining it by hasbara and the world’s ignorance or at least those not using their own mind to reconsider the realistic facts. So Hasbara in 16 words explained:

“Make the lie big, make it simple, keep saying it, and eventually they will believe it…”
