ALGIERS (AFP) - Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad called on Muslim countries on Sunday to unite to bring about an end to Israel's "genocide" against the people of Gaza, Algeria's APS news agency reported. Following talks with Algerian counterpart Abdelaziz Bouteflika, Ahmadinejad said that if "urgent and global measures are not taken by independent and free countries" to end Israel's deadly attacks on Gaza, "the region, the Muslim world and humanity as a whole will be confronted with a humanitarian catastrophe on a historic scale." Calling for coordinated political and economic sanctions against Israel, Ahmadinejad said Iran would offer "every support" to combat the Israeli offensive and prevent "a new genocidal stage" in its campaign against the Palestinian people. Meanwhile, Arab foreign ministers will hold an emergency meeting in Kuwait on the Gaza Strip conflict later this week, Arab League chief Amr Mussa said on Monday. Warning that the Muslim world and its leaders have a "historic responsibility" to act, Ahmadinejad said Islamic peoples and governments "are capable of injecting dynamism into the Palestinian intifada." Meanwhile, Jordan's King Abdullah II said on Monday the kingdom backs an Egyptian truce proposal to end Israel's war in the Gaza Strip, according to the palace. "Jordan supports Egypt's efforts to reach an immediate ceasefire and end the suffering of our brothers in Gaza," a palace statement quoted the king as telling President Hosni Mubarak over the telephone. It added that Jordan and Egypt, the two Arab countries, which have made peace with the Jewish state, "have agreed to provide the Palestinians in Gaza with all types of support." Meanwhile, Brazil said Monday, as its top diplomat toured the Middle East, that international talks including Israeli and Hamas representatives should be held to resolve the conflict in the Gaza Strip. "All the people who have something to do with the conflict in the Middle East have to be involved so we can find a path (to peace)," Brazilian President Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva said in his weekly radio programme. He said that an international forum that brought delegates from 40 countries, including Brazil, as well as from the UN and the EU together in Annapolis, in the US state of Maryland in Nov 2007, should be revived. "It's important that there is not only Israel and the Palestinian Authority around the table, but also those within Israel and the Palestinian Territories who don't want peace and who are making exaggerated demands," Lula said. Hamas should be part of the talks along with Israeli groups, he added. "Those who want conflict have to be identified and these people put at a negotiating table, along with the forces that have an influence on the Palestinian Authority " especially Hamas " and on the population in Israel," Lula said. Brazil's foreign minister, Celso Amorim, on the weekend made a trip to the Middle East to discuss the situation.
