RESOLUTION NO. 1/11-P
ON THE SITUATION IN THE MIDDLE EAST

The Eleventh Islamic Conference of Foreign Ministers held in Islamabad, Islamic Republic of Pakistan, from 2 to 7 Rajab, 1400 H (17 - 22 May, 1980).

Invoking the principles and objectives of the Islamic Conference Organisation, as well as the principles and aims of the U.N. Charter,

Guided by the resolutions of the Conference of Heads of State and Government of Islamic States and those of the Foreign Ministers concerning the
situation in the Middle East.

Stressing the unswerving commitment of Islamic states in respect of their obligations towards the aims of the common struggle for peace, justice
and progress, and with a view to combating colonialism racial discrimination, foreign occupation, Zionism and racism,

Gravely concerned at the increasingly retrogressive situation in the Middle East which could result in a new war breaking out, thus endangering international peace and security, in view of Israel's persistence in following an aggressive colonialist and racist policy, and a result of her collusion with the Egyptian regime and the United States.

Viewing with considerable anxiety the recent developments of the Middle East Problem and the Palestine cause in the region, in particulars the Egyptian regime's normalization of relations with the Zionist entity and its implication, which imperil Islamic principles, ideals, heritage, culture and civilization,

Convinced that the liberation of Al-Quds and its return to Arab and Islamic sovereignty, as well as the rescue of the holy places from Zionist occupation, are a prerequisite of the holy struggle incumbent on all Islamic peoples and governments, commensurate with their capabilities,

Convinced that the time has come for taking deterrent measures, as provided for in chapter VII of the UN Charter, and applying them to Israel, as the latter is persistently violating the principles of the Charter and is constantly refusing to implement the resolution of that international organisation and is, moreover, steadily pursuing her aggression on the Arab States and the Palestinian people,

Convinced of the necessity for the Islamic States to take stern and practical measures to counter the Zionist enemy's continued aggressions and violations,

Taking due account of the fact that the liberation of the occupied Palestinian and Arab territories, and the full exercise by the Palestinian people of their inalienable national rights have received the support of the Sixth Conference of Heads of State and Government of Non-Aligned Countries, held in Havana, and the Assembly of the OAU Heads of State and Government at their Sixteenth Session held in Monrovia,

Recalling its previous resolutions concerning the Middle East and the Palestinian cause,

1. Reaffirms the fact that there can be no solution to the problem of the Middle East and the cause of Palestine without putting into effect the following principles and tenets at one and the same time and without excluding any:

a) The cause of Palestine is the core of the Middle East problem and the crux of the Arab Israeli struggle;

b) The cause of Palestine and the Middle East problem form an indivisible whole when dealing with the problem, or seeking a solution to it, and hence any solution must never be a partial one or concern some parties to the exclusion of others; or relate to some of the causes and not to others; nor can any partial peace be attained, for peace should be comprehensive and include all parties to the dispute, and should, moreover, eliminate all the causes that led to it, in addition to being a just one;

c) A just peace in the region can only be achieved on the basis of total and unconditional withdrawal by Israel from all the occupied Palestinian and Arab territories, and of the recovery by the Palestinian people of their inalienable national rights, including the right to return to their land, to self-determination and to establish their independent national State in Palestine, in accordance with UN General Assembly resolution No.3236(XXIX - S);

d) Al Quds is part of occupied Palestinian territory, and it is imperative that Israel should unconditionally and totally withdraw from it and that it should be restored to Arab and Islamic sovereignty;

e) The P.L.O. is the legitimate and sole representative of the Palestinian people and it, alone has the full right to represent that people and to participate independently and on an equal footing in all conferences, activities and international fora connected with the Palestinian cause and the Arab-Israeli struggle, with a view to realizing the inalienable national rights of the Palestinian people. No solution can be viewed as comprehensive or just or acceptable unless the P.L.O. participates in its enactment and accepts it, as an independent party and on an equal footing and parity with the rest of the parties concerned;

f) All the acts perpetrated by Israel in the occupied Palestinian and Arab territories, including Al Quds, that is to say all measures, constructions modifications or alterations in the political, cultural, religious, civilizational, physical, geographical, demographic and other conditions and features are considered illegal, null and void;

g) Any settlement that Israel has established or would establish in the occupied Palestinian and Arab territories including al Quds, are illegal, null and void and constitute an impediment to the realization of peace. Such settlement should therefore be immediately removed and Israel should abstain from establishing any new ones, in accordance with UN resolutions in connection with that question and in particular Security Council resolutions 452(1979) and 465 (1980).

2. Affirms that any solution that is not founded on all those principles and tenets can never lead to a just peace, indeed it can only exacerbate tensions in the region and lead to the policies which are being applied by the parties to the Camp David agreement and are designed to liquidate the cause of Palestine and help Israel achieve her objectives and expansionist, colonialist and racist policies. It would, moreover, encourage bilateral and partial solutions while disregarding the essence of the
problem;

3. Emphasizes the fact that any infringement of the resolutions of the Islamic Conference Organisation connected with the Middle East problem and the cause of Palestine and Al Quds would lead to an attenuation of the struggle to liberate Al Quds and the occupied Palestinian and Arab territories and secure the inalienable national rights of the Palestinian people, and would harm the struggle of the Organisation being waged against colonialism, foreign occupation, racism and zionism and could be viewed as an impairment of the member states determination to put an end to Israeli occupation of the Palestinian and Arab territories and their resolve to assist the Palestinian people in realizing their inalienable national rights;

4. Reaffirms its rejection and condemnation of the Camp David agreements signed on 17.9.1978, and the Israeli-Egyptian treaty signed on 26.3.1979 and all the results and repercussions related to these agreements and calls for them to be resisted by all means and methods;

5. Strongly condemns any partial or separate solution and any agreement that would be harmful to the rights of the Arab nation and the Palestinian people, or could be viewed as a violation of the principles and resolutions of the Islamic Conference Organisation and UNO; or could prevent the liberation of Al Quds and occupied Palestinian and Arab territories or prevent the Palestinian people from securing and fully exercising their inalienable national rights, including their right to return to their homeland as well as their right to national independence and sovereignty in Palestine;

6. Condemns the collusion between Egypt, Israel and the United States in all fields and deems it a direct aggression on the rights of the Palestinian people, their homeland and future, and a serious threat to the security of Arab and Islamic States and their stability;

7. Strongly condemns the Egyptian Government's initiative in normalizing its relations with the Zionist entity and considers it a rejection of the principles of the sacred Jihad and as a danger to Islamic principles, ideals heritage, culture and civilization;

8. Strongly condemns the USA's persistence in its inimical attitude towards the inalienable national rights of the Palestinian people, and the total withdrawal from all the occupied Palestinian and Arab territories, including Al Quds, which constitutes a violation of the principles and objectives of the UN Charter and of resolutions of the General Assembly pertaining to the cause of Palestine and the Middle East, and can be viewed as an obstacle to the establishment of a just peace in the region. The Conference also condemns the policies, the United States of America seeks to impose on the region at the expense of the liberation of the occupied - Palestinian and Arab territories, including Al Quds, and at the expense of the inalienable national rights of the Palestinian people. The Conference affirms that the United States' persistence in following these policies can only be reflected negatively on the relations and interests between the Moslem States on the one hand, and the United States, on the other.

9. Strongly condemns Israel for pursuing its policies and practices in Al Quds and the occupied Palestinian and Arab territories, and more particularly her annexing part of them, establishing Israeli settlements and bringing in alien settlers; for destroying houses, seizing and confiscating property, evicting the Arab inhabitants and deporting, expelling, despoiling, exiling, transferring and ejecting them; in addition to denying them the right to return, their massive detention and whole-sale torture, the obliteration of national, archeological, spiritual and cultural features; for obstructing the freedoms and beliefs and the exercise of their religious rights and rites; for disregarding the laws relating to personal status; for illegally exploiting the heritage and natural and human resources of the occupied Palestinian and Arab territories and their populations;

10. Condemns Israel for refusing to abide by Security Council resolution 446 (1979), 452 (1979) and 465 (1980) in which the Council fully confirmed that all measures taken by Israel to alter the features of the occupied Palestinian and Arab territories, including Al Quds, are illegal and denounced Israeli policy and practice in establishing settlements while stressing that it was imperative to cancel these measures and remove the current settlements, and abstain from setting up new ones;

11. Declares that such Israeli policies and practices constitute a dangerous violation of the UN Charter, and in particular the principle of sovereignty and territorial integrity, the principles and provisions of international law, UN resolutions, the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and the Fourth Geneva Convention on the protection of civilians in times of war. Such policies and practices constitute a major impediment to the establishment of a just peace in the Middle East;

12. Reaffirms that all measures taken by Israel to alter the political, demographic, geographical, civilizational, cultural and religious features of the occupied Palestinian and Arab territories, or any part thereof, are illegal null and void, and demands the canceling of all such measures and abstaining from putting them into practice, while calling on all the States of the world to abstain from any act likely to be exploited or used by Israel when applying the above-mentioned policies and practices;

13. Holds Israel responsible for alterations, exploitation, sabotage or the expropriation of land being carried out in the occupied Palestinian and Arab territories;

14. Calls upon all the States and people of the world to take a firm stand against Israel's obstinacy and her persistent policy of aggression, expansion and rejection of UN resolutions connected with the cause of Palestine and the Middle East;

15. CALLS UPON all the States and Peoples of the world to abstain from giving military, human, material or moral support to Israel likely to encourage her in perpetuating her occupation of Al Quds and the Palestinian and Arab territories, and declares that these states that continue to support Israel will induce Islamic States to adopt an unfavourable attitude towards them;

16. Deplores the attitude of these states that provide assistance and arms to Israel and considers that the real purpose underlying the lavish flood of weapons of wars destruction being showered on Israel is to establish it as a colonialist and racist base in the third world in general, and in Africa and Asia in particular;

17. Condemns the collusion between Israel and South Africa and their twin policy of aggression and racism and condemns as well cooperation between them in all fields since it threatens the security of African and Arab States and their independence;

18. Reaffirms the need to sever all kind of diplomatic Consular, economic, cultural, sporting and touristic relations, as well as all forms of communication links with Israel at all levels official or otherwise, and requests the Islamic States that have not yet severed these relations to do so immediately;

19. Invites all Member States to sever diplomatic and economic relations with any state that resolves to move its embassy to Al Quds, or recognizes its annexation by Israel or its status as her capital.

The Conference requests the Al Quds Committee to study such cases as they arise and bring to the notice of Islamic States, through the General Secretariat, the importance of implementing this resolution.

20. Invites all Islamic States to impose an Arab boycott against Israel and coordinate their efforts in this regard with the other Third World countries with a view to imposing such boycott against all racist regimes, particularly in occupied Palestine and Southern Africa;

21. Calls upon Islamic States to take all positive measures within the widest possible international scope at the United Nations, and its specialized institutions and at the various international organisation and conferences, with a view to bringing greater pressure to bear on Israel, including the expulsion from such organisations and agencies;

22. Reaffirms the right of Arab peoples and States, whose territories are under Israeli occupation, to total permanent and effective sovereignty over their natural and other resources, riches and economic activities as well as full control over them. It also reaffirms their right to recover them and to receive full compensation for all damages incurred through exploitation, draining away of resources, and losses;

23. Reaffirms the right of Arab States and the Palestine Liberation Organisation to struggle militarily, politically and by any other means with a view to liberating their occupied territories securing the national inalienable rights of the Palestinian people and foiling by all possible means any solution or settlement which is detrimental to such territories or rights;

24. Affirms its support for the unity of the people of Lebanon, its territorial integrity, independence and sovereignty, and strongly condemns Israel for her continued attacks on Lebanon, especially the southern region, and her delaying tactics in withdrawing from territories occupied in that region; calls upon the Member States to support Lebanon at the United Nations and the International Organisations to exert the utmost pressure in stopping Israel's aggression and in securing her withdrawal from Lebanese territories she occupies; and calls on the Security Council to implement the resolutions adopted, in this respect, and the measures and sanctions stipulated in chapter VII of the United Nations Charter;

25. Affirms that the support of Islamic States to the Arab States with a view to enabling the latter to liberate their territories, and their support to the Palestinian people to help them restore their inalienable national rights are both a responsibility and a duty made imperative by the principles and objectives of the Charter of the Islamic Conference Organisation. The Conference also affirms that such support should be clearly expressed in practical and effective measures and stands on the part of all the member States;

26. Requests the Islamic States to seek to convene the UN General Assembly to an extraordinary or special meeting before the end of July 1980 to study the Palestinian cause with a view to adopting measures conducive to the achievement of the Palestinian people's inalienable national rights and to ensure withdrawal from the occupied Palestinian and Arab territories, including Al Quds;

27. Invites the Foreign Ministers of Islamic States to expound, in accordance with the provisions of this resolution, the Organisation's viewpoint concerning the Middle East problem and the Palestinian cause before the Fifth Session of the UN General Assembly;

28. Decides to include an item (the situation in the Middle East) in the agenda of the next Conference of Foreign Ministers of Islamic States;

29. Requests the Secretary General to follow up the implementation of this resolution and to report thereon to the next Conference.

RESOLUTION NO. 2/11-P
ON PALESTINE CAUSE.


The Eleventh Islamic Conference of Foreign Ministers held in Islamabad, Islamic Republic of Pakistan, from 2 to 7 Rajab, 1400 H (17-22 May, 1980);

Prompted by the principles of the Organisation of the Islamic Conference and, the principles and aims of the UN Charter;

Guided by the resolutions adopted by the Islamic Conference of Heads of Governments and of Foreign Ministers on the Palestine problem;

Noting the explosive situation obtaining in the Middle East as a result of the Camp David Agreements and its sequels, as well as Israel's determination to usurp Palestine, and its adamant refusal to recognize the inalienable national rights of the Palestinian people as approved by the General Assembly of the UN, which constitute a threat to the security and territorial integrity of the Islamic States;

Reaffirming that the Palestine problem is the core of the anti-zionist struggle, and that Israel's continued refusal to withdraw from the occupied Palestinian and Arab territories, and its flouting of the inalienable national rights of the Palestine people are totally unacceptable, and constitute a flagrant violation of the principles of the UN Charter, the Universal Declaration on Human Rights and a grave menace to World peace and security;

Considering that Israel's refusal to cooperate with the Committee set up by virtue of UN General Assembly Resolution 3376(XXX) in order to enable the Palestine people to exercise their inalienable rights, as stipulated in General Assembly Resolution 3236 (XXIX), underlines Israel's persistence in its flagrant defiance of the will of the International Community and international law, its violation of the UN Charter and its refusal to abide by the UN resolutions;

Reaffirming the legitimacy of the Palestine people's struggle under the leadership of the Palestine Liberation Organisation (PLO) against colonialism, occupation, zionism and racism by all possible means in keeping with the UN principles, including the armed struggle for the liberation of Palestine as an integral part of the world Liberation Movement;

Reaffirming its commitment to the resolution 3379 (XXX) which equates zionism to a form of racism and racial discrimination;

Reaffirming that the Zionist and racist régime in occupied Palestine and Southern Africa stem from one and the same imperialist source and are organically linked with the racist policies and practices aimed at suppressing the freedoms of man and undermining his dignity;

Expressing the conviction that the military, economic, political and moral aid Israel gets from some countries, particularly from the USA, encourages it to persist its aggressive policy its usurpation of Palestine;

Considering the maintenance of political, economic, cultural, technical and other relations with Israel helps it to continue its usurpation of Palestine and the national inalienable rights of the Palestinian people, and to persist in flouting the will of the international community and the UN resolutions, and encourages it to pursue its expansionist, colonialist and racist policy based on aggression;

Considering that Israel's continued membership of the United Nations is inconsistent with the U.N. Charter and encourages it to ignore the U.N. resolutions and to connive with the various aggressive racist and expansionist regimes;


1 - DECIDES:

A - To reaffirm its full and effective support of the Palestinian people's legitimate struggle led by the PLO, their legitimate and sole representative, inside and outside the occupied homeland for the liberation of their homeland for the restoration of their national inalienable rights in Palestine which include;

- The right to their homeland - Palestine,
- The right to return to their homeland and recover their property, as stipulated in U.N. resolutions,
- The right to self-determination without any outside interference,
- The right to freely exercise their sovereignty over their land,
- The right to establish their independent national state in Palestine under the leadership of the PLO,

B - To strive in all fields and on the widest international scale to promote recognition of the Palestinian people's inalienable national rights and of the PLO as their representative, wherever they may be;

C - To coordinate the activities of the Organization of the Islamic Conference and the PLO to draw up a strategy aimed at liberating Palestine and enabling the Palestinian people to exercise their inalienable national rights;


2 - AFFIRMS the right of the Palestinian people to pursue their struggle in all its military and political forms and by all means in order to recover their inalienable national rights including the establishment of their independent state in Palestine;

3 - CALLS on all the Islamic countries to support the Palestinian people's legitimate struggle against the Zionist racist occupation of Palestine, in order to recover their inalienable national rights, whose restoration constitutes a basic requirement for the establishment of a just peace in the Middle East;

4 - CALLS on all the Islamic States to abide by all the resolutions adopted by the Islamic Summit and Foreign Ministers' Conferences on the Palestine problem, and to implement them in the shortest possible period, particularly those on the severance of political, economic, cultural, technical, tourist relations and all forms of communication and ties with the Israeli enemy;

5 - REAFFIRMS the necessity of adopting adequate measures for the acceptance of the PLO representation in Islamic capitals, in its capacity as the legitimate and sole representative of the Palestinian people, granting it all the rights, privileges and immunities to which diplomatic missions accredited to states are entitled and calling on Muslim States that have hitherto taken no such measures to do so;

6 - AFFIRMS that the Palestine problem is at the core of the Middle East conflict and that any disregard of this fact would not serve the cause of peace in the area; and that the endeavours and attempts made by the United States of America to further its interest and influence in the area, and to liquidate the cause of occupied Palestine by its encouragement of bilateral and partial solutions and its disregard for the core of the problem will not lead to any just solution. Accordingly, the Conference condemns these attempts and endeavours and calls for resisting them and further condemns all the policies, practices and concessions which constitute a breach of or departure from the resolutions of the United Nations General Assembly and the conferences of the Islamic States;

7 - CONDEMNS the Camp David Accords signed in September, 1978 and the Washington Agreement signed between Israel and Egypt on March 26, 1979, and the conspiracy surrounding autonomy, and considers them a blatant departure from the Charter of the Organization of the Islamic Conference and a violation of international law - and the United Nations resolutions related to the Palestine problem and the occupied Palestinian and Arab territories and repudiates all their results and effects and considers them null and void and not binding to all Arabs and Muslims, particularly the Palestinian people. It further considers these agreement a bilateral and unjust solution which ignores the core of the problem - namely the Palestine problem - and an attempt to liquidate the inalienable national rights of the Palestinian people, notably their right to return to their homeland, to self-determination and to the establishment of their independent state on their national soil. Accordingly the Conference calls for resistance of the agreements by all ways and means, and condemns the role of the United States of America. in the signing of these agreements and the attempt to impose them on the Palestinian people;

8 - REAFFIRMS the right of the PLO to reject and thwart all forms of settlements, projects and solutions aimed at liquidating the Palestine problem and infringing the inalienable national rights of the Palestinian people in Palestine, notably the self-rule provided for in the Camp David and Washington Agreements;

9 - AFFIRMS the right of the PLO to participate independently and on an equal footing in all the International Conferences, fora and activities related to the Palestine problem and the Arab Zionist conflict, with a view to the achieve of the inalienable national rights of the Palestinian people approved by the United Nations General Assembly, particularly its resolution 3236 (XXIX);

10 - CONDEMNS Israel for its continued refusal of the United Nations resolutions on the Palestine problem, notably resolution 3236 (XXIX) on the inalienable national rights of the Palestinian people, and further condemns the refusal of Israel to cooperate with the committee formed by the United Nations General Assembly by virtue of its resolution 3376 (XXX) to enable the Palestinian people to exercise their inalienable national rights;

11 - CONDEMNS the policies and practices of racist, expansionist, terrorist Israel and its plans and measures for building settlements and Judaising the occupied Palestinian and Arab territories and for altering their political, demographic, geographic, social, cultural and economic features, including the Judaisation of the cities of Al Quds, Al Khalil, Al Nisirah and the areas of Al Jalil, Al Nagab, Golan and Sinhai, and decides that all these measures are null and void and illegal, and that under no circumstances whatsoever can there be any recognition of them or of their results;

12 - Condemns Israel's repeated violations of Arab and Palestinian human rights in the occupied territories since 1948 and 1967 and its refusal to implement the Geneva Conventions of 1949, notably the fourth Convention on the protection of civilians in wartime; and further condemns the Israeli policies and practices of seizing territories, the continued displacement of the Palestinian people, deportation, the banishment of the political leadership, the obliteration of the cultural, civilizational and religious heritage of the Palestinian cities and the Palestinian people, and the desecration of the Islamic holy places especially in Al Quds and Al Khalil. The Conference considers these policies and practices war crimes and a challenge to the whole of mankind;

13 - Condemns the policy of the United States of America which supports the Israeli occupation authorities' continued aggression and settlements on Palestinian and Arab occupied land; and which sides with Israel against the Palestinian rights - in world fora - in a manner which is in contradiction with the Charter of the United Nations, the Security Council resolutions and the Universal Declaration of Human Rights;

14 - Condemns all the states that provide Israel with military, economic, political, or human support, and calls upon them to desist forthwith from providing Israel with any material or moral support in any form whatsoever;

15 - Affirms that Resolution 242 does not constitute a sound basis for the solution of the Palestinian question, and that the just solution lies in the complete implementation of the United Nations resolutions pertaining to the national inalienable rights of the Palestinian people, especially General Assembly resolutions 3236 and 3237;

General Assembly and the unanimous demand of the Islamic Conference of Foreign Ministers, foreign troops were still there in Afghanistan in large numbers, and the peoples of Afghanistan were deprived of their legitimate right to determine their form of government and to order their lives in accordance with their traditions. Men, women and children in Afghanistan were being obliged to leave their hearths and homes because of the situation prevailing in that country.

8. His Excellency then posed the question "Can this state of affairs be allowed to continue for and indefinite period? Were the children the aged and the disabled doomed to live in a state of homelessness? Were they not entitled to live in dignity and honour in their own country? Was it not the duty of the entire international community to safeguard this right? The President emphasised that the international community was duty bound to decide that it would have no peace until this objective was attained, and that it was incumbent on this Conference to study the problem in all its aspects and to consider setting up a committee whose only aim would be to keep watch over the development in Afghanistan and to find ways and means of implementing the resolutions to be adopted.

9. Concerning the Middle East region, the President said that it was another area of conflict, where Israel continued to violate all the universally recognised international principles of ethics, justice and conduct. He stressed the fact that the so-called Israeli peace efforts were but a pretext to perpetuate Israel's occupation of the Arab territories. Pakistan's firm stand, the President said, was to secure the right of the Palestinian people to self-determination clearly and unequivocally, Israel's withdrawal from all the occupied territories including AL-QUDS, and the national inalienable rights of the Palestinian people to enable them to establish their own independent and sovereign state. Lasting peace in the Middle East would not be attained unless these demands were met.
