A Syrian delegation led by parliamentary speaker Hammouda Sabbagh arrived in Amman for the 29th conference of the Arab Inter-Parliamentary Union (AIPU) on Sunday, marking the first time that Syria had attended the conference since the eruption of the Syria conflict in 2011.

The two-day meeting, held under the theme of ‘Jerusalem – the eternal capital of the Palestinian state,’ was attended by parliamentary speakers from 16 Arab countries and representatives from the parliaments of other states.

This is a Civilized Place for Public Discussion

Please treat this discussion with the same respect you would a public park. We, too, are a shared community resource — a place to share skills, knowledge and interests through ongoing conversation.

These are not hard and fast rules, merely guidelines to aid the human judgment of our community and keep this a clean and well-lighted place for civilized public discourse.

Improve the Discussion

Help us make this a great place for discussion by always working to improve the discussion in some way, however small. If you are not sure your post adds to the conversation, think over what you want to say and try again later.

The topics discussed here matter to us, and we want you to act as if they matter to you, too. Be respectful of the topics and the people discussing them, even if you disagree with some of what is being said.

Be Agreeable, Even When You Disagree

You may wish to respond to something by disagreeing with it. That’s fine. But remember to criticize ideas, not people. Please avoid:

  • Name-calling
  • Ad hominem attacks
  • Responding to a post’s tone instead of its actual content
  • Knee-jerk contradiction

Instead, provide reasoned counter-arguments that improve the conversation.

The theme of the conference is ridiculous : never ever in history there was any “Palestinian state” and considering how PA/PLO and Hamas are stupid, it’s likely to never happen, moreover,…

… forget about Jerusalem as a capital city : the Jews would prefer to spread nuclear waste on the city rather to let it to Arab occupiers!

Jerusalem as capital for a Pali state = won’t happen. Dream on!

Politics is the art of the possible, not of the impossible. Insanity is doing always the same f*cking failing thing, thinking that this time, it will work. It failed every time they tried, it will fail again…

@Daeshbags-Sux, mon cher, in the former Ottoman-UK owned province-mandate of Palestine, I already count two states: Israel and Jordan, formerly called Trans-Jordan, and eventuality there will be a third state made up for those who are usually called Palestinians. On the long run two of the states will have their official capital in Jerusalem for religious reasons and for Hubris.
