There are Offices of the organization resides in Amman, Bethlehem, Tel Aviv and includes people from Jordan, Palestine and Israel.  This organization is leading political normalization between Arabs and the tools of the occupiers; they are working to legitimize the presence of colonial settlement and install and looting Palestinian lands, also their resources and Arabic language, and the consecration of "coexistence" between the occupier and people under occupation, under the cover of "the solution towards the environmental problems do not know political boundaries."

The occupied Palestinian territory is occupied land, by force and violence and blood, and that existing settlements are illegal, and therefore cooperate with the illegal and immoral according to international norms and conventions and treaties.  According to the international economic and academic boycott of the occupation and settlement campaigns, besides as the international confession of our rights as Palestinian and international treaties that criminalize occupation.

Thus, we emphasize the counties to boycott and refusal to deal with the normalization because of the dangerously of absence and ignore the responsibility of the occupation in the destruction of the Palestinian environment and plunder our resources and our resources institutions.
