Second Conference of
the International Union of Parliamentarians for the Defense of the Palestinian Cause
BEIRUT, LEBANON 24 Feb 2005

 
 

A delegation of Anti-Zionist Orthodox Jews traveled to Beirut, Lebanon from the United States and the United Kingdom to join "The Second Conference on The Palestinian People's Right of Return" hosted by The International Union of Parliamentarians for the Defence of the Palestinian Cause Under the auspices of His Excellency The president of the Lebanese Republic, General Emile Lahoud, for the purpose of clarifying the Torah-faithful Jewish position on the issue of the Palestinian Right of Return and the Middle-East conflict in general by conveying that:

  • The Jewish people feel the suffering of the Palestinian people.
  • We accept G-d's decree to be loyal citizens in every nation where we reside and will not rebel against any nation.
  • Jews true to the Torah accept G-d's decree of exile and will not make their own entity, any type or form of state but rather are waiting patiently for the revelation of G-d's glory when all mankind will recognize and serve the one G-d together in peace and harmony.
  • "Zionism does not represent the world Jewish view"
  • "Judaism and Zionism are extreme opposites"
  • "the 'state' of Israel does not represent the Jewish People"
  • The Palestinian people should be granted the full and immediate right of return.
  • The transformation of rule over the complete Holy Land to the Palestinian people, in which Jewish people would be their loyal citizens.

The conference was attended by delegations from over thirty countries.
