In the face of the accelerated pace of official normalization steps with the Zionist entity carried out by some Arab governments and in the region, we in the Kuwaiti Progressive Movement reaffirm our position rejecting and resisting normalization, based on the fact that the Zionist danger does not extend to the Palestinians alone, but targets all of us Arabs... It is also based on the fact that the basis of the Palestinian cause is that it is a cause of national liberation in the face of a usurping Zionist entity planted by imperialism in our Arab region to assume its functional role in serving Western imperialist interests and projects and establishing its dominance over our region, our countries and peoples.
The excuse that is given by some that normalization will bring stability and prosperity to the countries and will bring peace to our peoples is nothing but illusions that support the narrative of the occupation that it markets for itself to continue with its expansion and crimes. Once we look at the countries that signed normalization agreements with the Zionist entity, we will see that those agreements have brought nothing but tyranny, militarization, oppression, impoverishment and deprivation to the peoples, and also consecrated dependence on imperialism, undermined the sovereignty of states and restricted the freedom of peoples.
Even though the current government of the occupation entity is considered the most extremist and racist government, and its stated and main goal is to liquidate the Palestinian cause, and this is clearly shown by its escalation of systematic cleansing operations against all the Palestinian people; however, we see some regimes rushing to normalize with this usurping entity, which is going through unprecedented structural crises that threaten the Zionist entity. What requires us, in the interest of our peoples and Arab countries, to provide support for the steadfastness of the Palestinian people and support their resistance, and to expose the crimes of the Zionist entity, boycott it and impose a cordon of isolation on it, and turning solidarity into a tangible material, political and military support It is moral to support the steadfastness and resistance of the Palestinian Arab people.
It also means to point out that what some Arab regimes, including the Palestinian Authority, are doing with the occupation entity represents a deviation from the national and Palestinian national line, and that exploiting the Palestinian official cover to pass normalization agreements to save the entity is a betrayal of the cause of the Palestinian people steadfast behind their valiant resistance... We affirm that there is no alternative but resistance, steadfastness and militant solidarity of the peoples of our nation until liberation and the establishment of an independent democratic state on the entire Palestinian national territory with Jerusalem as its capital.
It is of particular and direct interest to us to emphasize the importance of steadfastness on the coherent national and national position of Kuwait in rejecting normalization with the usurping Zionist entity and adhering to legislation, which criminalizes dealing with the Zionist entity in any way, including law no. 21 for the year 1964 on the unified law of the boycott of Israel, Which prohibits, and still remains in its first article, on every average or legal person to conclude by himself or by means of an agreement with bodies or persons residing in Israel or belonging to it by their nationality or working for it or for its benefit wherever they reside… and in its second article it is prohibited to enter, exchange or possess Israeli goods and products of all kinds… As well as the Amiri decree declaring a defensive war between the state of Kuwait and the occupying Zionist gangs, on the 5th of June 1967 a decree that is still valid to this day.
The Kuwaiti Progressive Movement also calls on all political forces, unions, trade unions, students, civil society organizations, professional associations, human rights organisations and members of the National Assembly to assume their responsibilities at this sensitive stage in the history of our Arab nation to resist the occupation and all forms of normalization and advocate for our central cause Palestine and its honorable people.
