استراليا تتخلى عن الاشارة الى القدس الشرقية بـ"المحتلة"

Read this story in English W460

قررت استراليا التخلي عن وصف القدس الشرقية بـ"المحتلة"، في خطوة اعتبر احد اعضاء مجلس الشيوخ بانها تمثل "تحولا كبيرا" في سياسة البلاد الخارجية.

واثار الموضوع جدلا في مجلس الشيوخ الاسترالي هذا الاسبوع عندما اصدر النائب العام جورج برنديس بيانا اوضح فيه موقف كانبيرا ازاء مشروعية الاستيطان الاسرائيلي في المدينة المقدسة.

وجاء في بيان النائب العام انه "من غير المفيد وصف المناطق موضع التفاوض ضمن عملية السلام باستخدام عبارات ذات مرجعية تاريخية. ان استخدام صفة +المحتلة+ على القدس الشرقية يحمل ايحاءات غير لائقة وغير مفيدة".

واضاف برنديس انه "ليس من المفترض ان تعمد الحكومة الاسترالية الى وصف مناطق هي موضع تفاوض من خلال عبارات توحي باحكام مسبقة".

وتابع ان كانبيرا تؤيد التوصل الى حل سلمي للنزاع "يعترف بحق اسرائيل في العيش بسلام ضمن حدود امنة ويعترف ايضا بتطلع الشعب الفلسطيني لتاسيس دولته".

وكانت اسرائيل احتلت القدس الشرقية بعد حرب حزيران/يونيو 1967، ثم ضمتها في خطوة لا يعترف بها المجتمع الدولي.

واثار برنديس جدلا حاميا في مجلس الشيوخ عندما اعلن مساء الاربعاء ان الحكومة الاسترالية "لا تعترف ولا توافق" على استخدام تعبير "المحتلة".

واعترض عدد من عناصر مجلس الشيوخ مشددين على ان استراليا صوتت لصالح قرارات مجلس الامن الدولي في 2011 و2012 والتي استخدم فيها التعبير للاشارة الى مستوطنات في القدس الشرقية.

واعتبر السناتور المستقل نيك كزينوفون ان الغاء كلمة "المحتلة" يشكل "تحولا كبيرا" في السياسة الخارجية الاسترالية، حسبما نقلت عنه وكالة استراليان اسوشييتد برس.

واعتبرت زعيمة حزب الخضر كريستين ميلن الجمعة ان قرار الحكومة بزعامة توني ابوت "تراجع شائن".

وقالت ميلن في بيان "انه سلوك تحريضي يتعارض مع عملية السلام... واستخدام تعبير +الاراضي الفلسطينية المحتلة+ مقبول ومستخدم لدى الامم المتحدة".

واضافت ان "المستوطنات الاسرائيلية التي اقيمت بعد 1967 غير شرعية وتتعارض مع اتفاقية جنيف الرابعة".

This is to satisfy the Israeli lobby in Australia. The Australian government knows that the worthless "Arab" puppet head of states will not take ANY political or economic steps against Ausrialia. The Arab league should change its name to the "worthless puppet dictators League".

jerusalem should be neither arab nor israeli... it should be an international city under the supervision of the UN as it belongs to humanity not just one people!

@Southern : no offence but you're late in the game. Jerusalem was here long before the arabic language and Islam ever existed. It's not an Arabic city, never was and never will be :)

If you need to answer the question of "who" was here first, Muslims are actually the last people who can claim any belongings there.

Needless to say that Jerusalem is a symbol for all "monotheistic" religions, source of wars and conflicts much older and larger than "arabs". It has witnessed human stupidity and greed throughout millennia and as such should become an independent and open city managed by a council of all religions, independent, the same way the Vatican is today in its own right.

Well, you're calling Jerusalem an Arabic city. All 3 religions originated here. There are Arab Muslims, Christians and Jews.

But Jerusalem was founded long before Arabs. The Arabic Language, Islam and Christians came to "existence" long after the city came to light. In fact, the Christian religion appeared long before Arabic appeared too.

So there can be no claim that Jerusalem is an Arabic city.

However, the descendants of the people of this land, originaly pageans and jews have become christians, muslims and jews today which means all have a claim on the land. It happens that most of those speak Arabic or are Arabs today.

I'm just saying it's wrong to call Jerusalem an Arabic city.

hey southern seems you forgot that jerusalem DOES NOT belong to anyone...but to everyone... so the best thing and smartest thing to do is to place it under international control... but no wonder you cannot understand smart things....

I understand the religious significance for Jerusalem, but since the 'end" of colonialism Sovereignty and self determination rests with the Indigenous population. Religious sites must be respected for all religions, but NO religion has a right to impose its will on another. The indigenous people are Palestinian Arabs. What language was used and what religion existed over a thousand years ago has NOTHING to do with the post colonial world. I, like many other persons from a Christian background may have ancestors who were Judiac 2000 years ago who have converted and many Christians have converted to Islam.

Also, Why just JERUSALEM. Why not Nazareth and Bethlehem whose population was up to 20 years ago mostly Christian and NOW mostly muslims.

Jerusalem should be the capital of one democratic state where jews and muslims and christians live side by side. Abolish zionism now.
