the Palestinian Cause Under the auspices of His

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
- 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
- "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.

over thirty countries.
