Hundreds Join “United against Normalization” in Arab and Islamic Countries
The general Arab conference “United against Normalization” took place on over the internet on February 21 and 22, 2021, with the participation of people from most Arab Countries.
The conference aimed to unify fronts resisting the normalization that some Arab regimes rush to with the aim of eliminating the Palestinian cause, ending wars and internal conflicts.
This conference was sponcered by The Arab National Conference, the Islamic National Conference and the General Conference for Arab Parties, as well as Al-Quds International Foundation, the Arab Advancement Front and the Arab Left Meeting.
Numerous leaders of the movements resisting normalization with the Zionist occupation, parties, conferences, institutions, active Islamic movements, and Christian sects gave speech during the conference which had many different effective political, intellectual and ideological figures in the majority of countries in the Arab world.
The discussions of the first session of the conference took place after leaders of the resistance in Lebanon and Palestine spoke, directing strong criticism to governments which normalized relations with the Zionist occupation state, as they considered their actions -especially the UAE and Saudi Arabia- as a treason to the Palestinian cause, adding new obstacles to the restoration of the occupied lands and the liberation of Al-Aqsa, describing this as a betrayal of peoples, sanctities and religions.
They also called on all actors in resisting normalization to interact and revitalize the Arab arena against the systematic campaign launched against the Palestinian cause and the resistance.

This conference is the first of its kind to unify the efforts of those working to resist normalization, hence the importance of forming a united Arab front against the project of normalization and integration of the occupying state with the Arab and Islamic surroundings against the will of the peoples, while neglecting the Palestinian cause, ending it and make turning it to a memory.
This conference works on confronting the Zionist-American project, under the auspices of the former US President Donald Trump, and the UAE on behalf of some Arab normalizing regimes.
