[05/October/2004] The leading national daily, Al-Thawrah, focused its editorial on the circumstances in the Arab arena and the passive stance of Arab leaders toward the on going developments in the region.
The paper stated that the serious upheavals in the Arab World has revealed the weakness of Arab political regimes which recently have lacked the minim effectiveness. But , what is too strange and astonishing is that Arab leaders try to play down the crucial deteriorations in the region.
The bloodshed in Palestine and Iraq do not provoke any sort of Arab leaderships reaction. However , everyone is a ware that the nation's fate is heading for the edge.
Al-thawrah called for an urgent Arab initiative based on mutual understanding, trust and solidarity so as to help the nation playing an effective role in the regional and international arena.
Al-Thawrah, also commented in its daily column on the Palestinian-Israeli conflict.
The columnist commenced his comment saying Israel used to pretend that it won't halt its military operation unless the Palestinian resistance has already given up its armed struggle.
Likewise , the Palestinian resistance movement confirms that it would never renounce its legislative rights in fighting the occupation troops until regaining the occupied territories and establishing the Palestinian independent state.
The writer went on his arguments saying it is logical that if the reason eliminated , the result will be removed.
The Israeli occupation is the reason of the conflict consequently the Palestinian resistance is the result. Hence, it is illogical to say that the resistance must be ended in order to put an end to the conflict.
All the world leaders realize this fact, however they turn the blind eye on the logic for the sake of America's desire.
When would the American administration come to realize the fact that if the reason is removed, the result absolutely would be disappeared. The writer enquired.
