THE LAITY COMMITTEE IN THE HOLY LAND

A CHRISTIAN PALESTINIAN CALL TO THE WORLD
February 15, 2002


At a time when the Israeli government is desperately searching for
somebody as an alternative to President Yasser Arafat,  the LAITY
committee in the Holy Land, would like to remind the world that we have
full faith in our leader, Mr. Arafat, who was democratically elected by
the Palestinian people to be the President of the Palestinian State.

We urge the International Community to support President Arafat and the
Palestinian people and not to blind themselves to Sharon's aggressive
and provocative measures against innocent Palestinian civilians who have
been under occupation for the past 53 years.  This is the longest
ongoing occupation in the history of the 20th Century, and the only
occupation, which has spread into the 21st Century.

The world has blamed the Palestinian Authority for not accepting the
Camp David 2 negotiations. There were valid reasons that the
Palestinians did not welcome this agreement. The terms which were
offered would have only placed the Palestinians in cantons separated by
by-pass roads built to illegal settlements,  and facilitating the
Israeli control over the Palestinians, making it more difficult for
Palestinians to govern a normal and unified state. Those who wish to
learn more about Camp David, please refer to
www.palestine-pmc.com/camp.html

In order for President Arafat to implement what the International
community is expecting from him, we urge them to equally pressure Sharon
to ease restrictions, stop the demolition of houses, stop the
assassination policy and remove the siege placed on President Arafat.

The Palestinian authority's policy is determined to accomplish peace
based on UN resolutions 242, 338 and 194, which is the only way to
ensure a just and lasting peace in the area.
