CAIRO, (PIC)– The Arab League ignored in its meeting on Sunday the latest Israeli threats against the Aqsa Mosque and focused on the peace process with the Israeli occupation.

The League stated in a draft resolution that the just and comprehensive peace is a strategic choice to the Arab states.

“The just and comprehensive peace with Israel can only be achieved through its withdrawal from the occupied Palestinian and Arab territories, including the occupied Arab and Syrian Golan, the line of June 1967 and the area which is still occupied in southern Lebanon, and through the establishment of an independent and sovereign Palestinian state with east Jerusalem as its capital,” the League emphasized.

Its resolution also stressed the importance of holding an international conference addressing the Palestinian-Israeli conflict.

For its part, the freedom and justice party of Egypt, which has a parliamentary majority, strongly denounced the latest Israeli calls for destroying the Aqsa Mosque .

The party warned Israel that there would be no more condemnations by the Arab governments following the Arab spring of revolutions and that the Arab peoples would never accept in any way the demolition of the Aqsa Mosque.

In a press release posted on its website, the party demanded the Arab leaders to take urgent action to protect the Aqsa Mosque against Israel’s malicious intents.

In a related incident, the Jordanian security forces used force to disperse hundreds of angry young men who rallied on Sunday afternoon near the Israeli embassy in Amman to protest Israeli threats to demolish the Aqsa Mosque.

Violent clashes broke out with the Jordanian forces that used batons to prevent the young men from approaching the embassy.
