The streets of the Arab countries were witnessed the amazing response to the Intifada. Numerous demonstrations were held in support of Al-Aqsa Intifada in countries which have never protested, such as the Gulf States. This made the ruling regime feel ashamed that they held an emergency meeting in Cairo in about one month after the Intifada. The result was a statement that didn’t grant the Arab nation’s wishes on supporting and legitimating to Al-Aqsa Intifada.
The streets of other Islamic countries were filled with protesters. As the result, an Islamic summit was held in Doha in 2000, which was named Al-Aqsa summit. The declaration of summit criticized US permissive stance towards the Israeli crimes, and also expressed hostility to Israel.
The Intifada made Arab society sober again. They launched campaign calling for boycott of Israeli and American goods, enabled Arab Office for the Boycott and held a meeting in Damascus, the Syrian capital, which didn’t have a notable aspect.
Once again, art movements were witnessed national anthem and poems of resistance. Arabic media covered al-Aqsa Intifada to the extent that most of its production programs were about the Intifada.
