BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- Minister of Foreign Affairs Riyadh al-Malki participated in the 23rd African Union Summit in Equatorial Guinea on behalf of President Mahmoud Abbas on Thursday.

Al-Malki made a speech briefing African leaders and participants on the updates in the region, and the Israeli escalation against Palestinians being undertaken under the pretext of looking for the three missing Israeli youths.

Al-Malki called upon Africa and the world to not only condemn Israel but also to hold it accountable and pressure it until the occupation ends and a Palestinian state is created.

Al-Malki made his speech after the Israeli delegation left the hall after a number of states raised protests at its attempts to attend as a guest in the summit.

The Arab delegations at the conference protested the presence of the 14-member Israeli delegation, according to the Turkish Anadolu Agency.

"We reject Israel's presence as an observer at the summit," Arab League representative Samir Mohsen was reported saying by the agency, adding that the Israeli delegation was "illegitimate."

Kuwaiti Ambassador to Ethiopia Rashid al-Hajiri, for his part, described Israel's attendance of the A.U. summit as "unacceptable."

"As an Arab bloc, we will reconsider our relations with Equatorial Guinea," the Kuwaiti Ambassador to Ethiopia Rashid al-Hajiri was reported by the Anadolu Agency as saying, calling the decision to invite Israel as "reckless."

izrael needs to be kicked out of every single world organization they currently belong to...because the terrorist 'state' does not belong! but getting their criminal butts kicked out of the AU Summit is very good & enjoyable news. SMART MOVE!!!!!!!!

The "Israelis" in attendance were, in fact, AMERICAN JEWS. Their ejection was an act of pure racism. Shame.

I reject the notion of dual citizenship. Any two countries may hold policies that are conflicted in the interests of one or both nations. If such is the case an individual cannot be persuaded to act in the interests of both.I contest the interests of Israel .they are not consistent with American Ideals regarding democracy.,,race or religion.I contest the notion that Israel is an ally to the USA I do not hold Jewish people as being liable for this except to the extent they are accomplices.

Would someone please explain to me why Africa is under the spell and influence of Arabs. All my life I have been told that the Jewish people were wanting take over the world yet what I see happening all over the world is the Islamists meddling and warring to take power.
