Jeddah, Dec 5, 2018, SPA -- The Permanent Representatives Committee of the Member States of Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) has expressed its strong condemnation and rejection of the "Nation-State of the Jewish People" which aims to abolish historical, political, legal, religious and cultural rights of the Palestinian people, including the right of refugees to return to their homes and compensation and the right of the Palestinian people to self-determination.
In a statement issued after its meeting here today, the Committee warned against "the danger of this Israeli law which attempts to legislate racial discrimination on the basis of the Jewish religion''.
OIC stressed that this law aims to abolish the identity and the Arabic language of Palestinian citizens in general and to deny the existence and identity of the Palestinian people.
