Cairo, Jan.23 (Petra) — Arab Information Ministers hold a meeting on Sunday to discuss proposals to forge a commonÂ media strategy to counter Israeli plans to JudaizeÂ Jerusalem and demolish Al-Aqsa Mosque Compound.
The Arab Information Ministers’ Council will discuss setting up anÂ Arab media commission and US Congress legislation that calls for punitive measures against satellite providers who contact entities accused of fueling terrorism and anti-American incitement.
The meeting will also discuss recommendations by the council’s standing committee, including a proposal to form a panel of legal and media experts and media people to finalise a study by the Arab League Secretary General on setting up a new body, theÂ Arab Media Commission.
The recommendations censured the US Congress legislation as meddling in the internal affairs of concerned sovereign nations, arguing that those countries should address their own media issues in accordance with their national legislations.
The proposals also underscored Arab states’ determination to pursue the fight against extremism, violence, terror and incitement since they themselves are victims of terror and called for drawing a distinction between terrorism and the right to resisting occupation.
They also call for Arab diplomacy with the U.S administration to shed light on the negative impact of imposing a U.S embargo on Arab satellite channel providers and to coordinate such moves with the main satellite operators Arabsat, Nilesat and Noursat.
The recommendations also commit Arab satellite channels to refrain from broadcasts that incite violence and extremism and call for a pledge by European satellite channels not to air material sensitive to Arabs and Muslims.
Jordan’s delegation to the meeting, which will be held atÂ Arab League Headquarters inÂ Cairo, will be headed by the kingdom’s Ambassador to Egypt Hani Mulqi, and Director-General of theÂ Jordan News Agency (Petra) Ramadan Rawashdeh.
