Or­ga­nizer of the sym­po­sium ti­tled ‘Jerusalem and the Is­lamic Union’ Has­san Al-Qazaf stated the United States’ de­ci­sion to move its em­bassy to Jerusalem is cat­a­strophic in­deed, re­ports Al-Anba daily.

Al-Qazaf called on the Arab and Is­lamic coun­tries to de­clare an Is­lamic con­fed­er­acy to in­sti­gate prac­ti­cal ac­tion to save Jerusalem. He sug­gested a merger of the Arab League, Gulf Co­op­er­a­tion Coun­cil and the Is­lamic Co­op­er­a­tion Or­ga­ni­za­tion and mov­ing its head­quar­ters to Jerusalem un­der the name ‘Is­lamic Union’. He sug­gested mak­ing the de­ci­sions oblig­a­tory to all mem­bers, while tak­ing peace­ful po­lit­i­cal steps to sus­pend the US de­ci­sion.

For his part, Pales­tinian Am­bas­sador to Kuwait Rami Tah­boub praised the Kuwaiti stance on the Pales­tinian is­sue, and added the US de­ci­sion was planned years be­fore 1967 war and the oc­cu­pa­tion of Jerusalem. He pointed to re­lated de­ci­sions taken by Is­rael that pre­vent the re­turn of Arab in­hab­i­tants of Jerusalem stay­ing out­side for more than three years.

He added the Is­raeli au­thor­i­ties have im­posed high tax on the in­hab­i­tants of Jerusalem to force them out.

For his part, Bishop Ghat­tas Huzaim stressed the im­por­tant role Chris­tians play in de­fend­ing the Pales­tinian cause.
