Making Jerusalem capital of Israel unacceptable: Jama’at

SRINAGAR: Jama’at-e-Islami Jammu Kashmir on Tuesday said some western powers led by the world imperialist “so-called” super powers have hatched a “vicious conspiracy” to declare Jerusalem as the capital of Israel and shift the US Embassy there which will be a “great injustice” to the entire Muslim community across the world.
In a statement, Jama’at spokesperson said the Jerusalem has always been a sacred place of the Muslim Ummah and a part of the Muslim Caliphate. “It was forcibly occupied by the European crusaders but Salahuddin Ayubi conquered it back. Under a well-oriented plan of Balfour Agreement in 1917, Palestine was invaded by Jews in 1948 with the help of the world powers and Jerusalem was once again occupied by force with the exodus of almost entire Muslim population there,” he said.
“This holy city of Muslims was divided into East and West parts and the sacred Masjid-e-Aqsa was forcibly occupied by Jews. The entire Muslim community has been demanding the freedom of Palestine from the illegal occupation of the illegal state of Israel created by Jews with the help of European and American block, since 1948. But despite the passage of about 70 years, the genuine demand of Muslim Ummah is not accepted and Israeli Jews are still occupying Palestine including Masjid-e-Aqsa without any legal or moral justification.”
“So many resolutions passed in UN Security Council in this regard are yet to be implemented because of the rigid attitude of USA misusing and abusing its Veto power,” he said.
The spokesperson said Jama’at-e-Islami strongly condemns the “vicious plan of the imperialist powers of America and Jews” to make Jerusalem as the capital of “illegal” state of Israel and asks the international community in particular the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) to “frame such a strategy that will frustrate the Israeli plans to justify its illegal occupation of Palestine and turning Jerusalem as the capital of Israel”.
