Arab League Secretary-General Nabil al-Araby held a press conference on Wednesday, September 19, at the Arab League headquarters in Cairo, where he addressed various issues including the ongoing UN General Assembly meetings, the Syrian crisis and the recent anti-Islam film produced in the United States.

Al-Araby told reporters that the Organization of Islamic Cooperation, the Arab League, the African Union and the European Union are working on reaching an agreement against religious defamation.

SOUNDBITE 1 (Arabic) – Arab League Secretary-General Nabil al-Araby:
“We’re working on it. Thank God, it’s not only the Organization of Islamic Cooperation and the Arab League but also the European Union and the African Union showing interest in this issue to put together the measures to start preparing an international convention prohibiting defaming or insulting religions.”

As for the Syrian issue, Al-Araby detailed the mission of the new UN-AL envoy to Syria Lakhdar Brahimi and his recent visit to Damascus where he met with President Bashar al-Assad, Syrian officials, opposition members, Syrian Free Army members and representatives of civil society organizations.

He added that the Egyptian and the Arab League positions are clear on the issue, demanding Al-Assad to step down.

SOUNDBITE 2 (English) – Arab League Secretary-General Nabil al-Araby:
“I stick to what the resolution of the Arab League pronounced, that what is needed is the beginning of a transitional period which will entail of course a new government – a coalition government or whatever it is. And also the Arab resolution said or issued an appeal to President Assad to step down.”

Al-Araby stressed in the press conference he held before heading to New York to take part in the UN General Assembly meetings, that the reason for the failure in dealing with the Syrian crisis is the international system established since 1945 and the veto used by China and Russia.

He clarified that the Arab League and the United Nations were unable to resolve the Syrian crisis due to the non-cooperation of Al-Assad and his regime and their rejection of all previous initiatives over the past few months.

An estimated number of five million illegal migrants live and work in the European Union. A number growing with at least 500.000 each year, despite great efforts by the EU, and in particularly the border states Spain, Greece and Italy, to prevent them from entering the EU.
In an area in the outskirts of Calais which goes by the name “the jungle", Afghan children and adolescents as young as 12 years of age, wash themselves in the waste water of the local factory.
They seek shelter and try to keep warm under blankets in the bushes and in tents donated by local charity organizations. It has been a very long and harsh winter. Should the migrants by any chance have assumed to have reached a peaceful place to rest after fleeing the war in Afghanistan, they have very soon been met by a quiet different reality. In the jungle of Calais the Afghan boys also seek shelter from a different power: the local riot police.

This young afghan boy is 12 years old and have done the trip from Afghanistan on his own.
