QUESTION OF THE VIOLATION OF HUMAN RIGHTS AND FUNDAMENTAL FREEDOMS IN ANY PART OF THE WORLD, INCLUDING:

(a) QUESTION OF HUMAN RIGHTS IN CYPRUS (agenda item 9) (continued ) (E/CN.4/2002/3, 4, 9, 10, 33-40, 41 and Add.1, 42-49, 124, 144, 149-151, 156-158 and 164-167; E/CN.4/2002/NGO/14, 36, 52 and 54)

65. Ms. INAYATULLAH (Pakistan), speaking on behalf of the member States of the Organization of the Islamic Conference (OIC), said that the recent Extraordinary Session on terrorism of OIC Foreign Ministers had denounced all forces that threatened Islam and Muslims and rejected attempts to link Islam to terrorist acts. Steps must be taken to protect the rights of innocent citizens.

66. The recent invasion and reoccupation of the Palestinian territories by the Israel Defence Forces (IDF) had been a source of deep anguish for the Islamic world. The OIC strongly condemned Israel’s use of force and its attempts to undermine Palestinian national institutions and elected leadership. It called for the full implementation of Security Council resolution 425 (1978) and the withdrawal of Israel from all occupied Lebanese territories, including the Shebaa Farms. Israel should release the Lebanese civilians detained in Israeli prisons, and provide maps showing all the landmines left behind by the occupation forces in southern Lebanon, which continued to pose a threat to human life.

84. Mr. KHABBAZ-HAMOUI (Syrian Arab Republic) said that his delegation was most concerned at the accusations made by Western countries and directed at developing countries during the discussion of agenda item 9. He regretted that Western countries kept silent in the face of flagrant human rights violations by Israel in his region, in particular the detention of thousands of Lebanese, Syrians and Palestinians in Israeli prisons where they were denied fundamental human rights.

97. Mr. RANJHA (Pakistan) ...

99. The gravest violations of human rights occurred during armed conflict and foreign military occupation, as was the case in both the Palestinian territories occupied by Israel and Indian-occupied Jammu and Kashmir. The campaign against terrorism was being used as a pretext to justify the suppression of the legitimate rights of the Palestinian people and it was high time that the nations of the world told the Government of Israel to stop perpetrating such atrocities.

STATEMENT BY THE MINISTER FOR FOREIGN AFFAIRS OF THE LIBYAN ARAB JAMAHIRIYA

113. Mr. SHALGAM (Libyan Arab Jamahiriya) ...

119. He deplored the decades of suffering inflicted by the occupying Power upon the Palestinian people, as they tried to exercise their legitimate right to self-determination. Israel had responded to the criticisms of the international community with greater intransigence and increased force. The real terrorists were not those who were defending their land but those who had usurped the land and displaced the people of Palestine, subjecting them to oppression. The Commission must make every effort to provide full protection for the Palestinian people and help them to establish an independent State, with Jerusalem as its capital, where Arabs and Jews could live together.
