Gaza - Representatives of various Palestinians factions yesterday paid tribute to President H.H Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan for his unfailing political and humanitarian support to the Palestinians, particularly during Al Aqsa Intifada. The support accorded to the Palestinian cause by President Sheikh Zayed and the entire people of the UAE was the backbone of the Palestinian resistance and struggle+ said the representatives in remarks made here on the occasion of the 36th anniversary of the accession to the throne of Sheikh Zayed as Ruler of the Abu Dhabi emirate.



The Palestinian representatives who also included officials from the Palestinian National Authority (PNA) hailed the UAE assistance for reconstructing demolished houses, saying that it had made an enduring effect on those who had been aggrieved. Earlier, the Palestinian Satellite television ran an hour-long programme featuring the accession day. The programme was extended for another hour by orders of President Yasser Arafat. +President Sheikh Zayed is a wise leader, a brother and a friend. We are obliged to celebrate the anniversary of his accession with our beleaguered people, who much to this great Arab leader+ said President Arafat.



Other Palestinian intellectuals who were hosted in the programme unanimously praised the UAE under the leadership of Sheikh Zayed for its stance, which they said was unique among Arab and Islamic nations. (The Emirates News Agency, WAM)
