The Arab League warned against Israel's continuous efforts to Judaize the city of al-Quds (Jerusalem) and change its historic and geographic features by confiscating lands and expanding settlements at the expense of the inhabitants of the city.

"What Israel is currently doing is flagrant breach of international laws pertaining to the territories under occupation including the Geneva conventions of 1949," the Palestine sector at the 22-nation Arab League said in a statement out here on Tuesday.
The statement called on the international quartet committee (the United States, the United Nations, the European Union and Russia) to live up to its responsibilities and work on halting the "new Israeli crime", which is being manifested by the construction of 20,000 settlment units in Jerusalem.

Israel has continued such violation as a result of the international community's silence regarding "the open war" against the Palestinian people and their lands, the statement said.

The settlement plan declared by Israel recently and its insistance that a green line did not exist in Jerusalem manifested a continuous policy to turn over facts and realities on the ground and a unilateral imposition of a state of defacto racial separation ahead of the negotiations for the final settlement, said the statement.

The Arab league underlined the Arabic character of the city, denouncing all illegal measures by Israel including ethnic cleansing, displacement and isolation practiced against the Palestinian people, Christians or Muslims alike
