Gaza6Dec7KUALA LUMPUR (PNIC):-The American president's announcement of his decision to recognize Jerusalem as Israel's capital will have very severe repercussions in Palestine, the Arab world and the Islamic arena, Dr. Maher Salah, head of Hamas Movement in the diaspora, said on Thursday.

Salah, who is currently heading a Hamas delegation on a visit to Malaysia, said in a press statement, “This is an illegitimate and ill-advised decision, which contradicts international laws and resolutions, and violates the sanctity of the holy city of Jerusalem.”

He empathized that the decision is refused and will be resisted by all the Palestinian, Arab, Muslim and free peoples of the world.

“Jerusalem (Bait Al-Maqdes) is a sacred city for both Muslims and Christians. It is the united capital of Palestine. It has been, and will always be the first qibla, and the third most sacred mosque. It is a verse (ayah) in the Quran (the Book of Allah).”

Salah affirmed that Jerusalem will always be a Palestinian, an Arab and an Islamic city.

“We, in Hamas, call upon the Arab and Muslim Ummah and the free peoples of the world to stand firm and united against this dangerous decision and support the Palestinians in their continuous struggle to liberate their homeland and establish their independent state with Jerusalem as its capital,” he added.

He concluded by saying, “This American move serves as a blatant reminder and a loud wake-up call to all Arab and Muslim countries and leaders that their true and only enemy is the illegitimate Zionist occupation. All their efforts and means should be directed towards uprooting this occupation, freeing Palestine and returning the Palestinian refugees to their homeland.”
