AMMAN, Nov. 3 (Xinhua) -- Jordan's Senate President Faisal Fayez on Sunday called on the international community to shoulder its responsibilities to support the Palestinians in establishing a sovereign and independent state on their national soil, the state-run Petra news agency reported.

He made the remarks on the 102nd anniversary of the signing of the Balfour Declaration, a statement signed on Nov. 2, 1917 stating British support for "the establishment in Palestine of a national home for the Jewish people."

"The Israeli occupation of Palestine, which is the longest in the world, is no longer accepted," said Fayez.

Jordanian MP Yahya al-Saud also called on all regional and international institutions to intensify their support to the Palestinians and their fair cause.

He added that the dilemma of Palestinians is repeated every day due to the continuous Israeli practices seeking to "Judaize" Jerusalem, according to Petra. Enditem
