The leader of the Sadrist Movement in Iraq, Muqtada al-Sadr, condemned the US President Donald Trump's decision to recognise Jerusalem as the capital of Israel and to move its embassy there. "The Muslim world would undoubtedly stand against this conspiracy and the Zionists will be dealt a heavy blow with this move and dear Palestine will at last be liberated without doubt", he added. "It will always host Christian, Jewish and Muslim holy sites".
Israel illegally occupied Palestinian territories in the 1967 war, including East Jerusalem in defiance of the worldwide community, and wasted no time in declaring the city as its "eternal, undivided" capital.
The move was in violation of global law and undermined numerous United Nations resolutions, he said. "All the Muslim countries under the Organisation of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) should understand that apart from USA and may be India (covertly for now), most of the world powers including Britain, Russia and China are in opposition of this move, so it would be better for the Muslim world to stand united against this anti-Muslim declaration", she said.
The DeM general secretary said any silence by the Muslim world over the issue at this juncture will be an utter disregard to millions of sacrifices of the Palestinian people. A statement released by the group said it is a "duty" for Muslims to urgently act and "do everything that is needed to stop the madman sitting in White House and stop him from dishonoring the sacred land of Bait al-Maqdis", referring to Jerusalem by its Arabic name.

"It will be also interesting to see what comes out of the emergency meeting called by the UN Security Council which has said that such unilateral decisions can't be taken in such matters", she said.
The Treasury and opposition benches in the National Assembly joined hands to pass the resolution which termed Trumps decision as a direct attack on Muslims at a time when the Middle East is already beset with wars and conflicts.
But this time he has done a silly mistake which has provided us a great opportunity to unite a divided Muslim Ummah. Al-Qaida in the Islamic Maghreb (AQIM) expressed solidarity with Muslims on the issue and urged all fighters to make the liberation of Palestine their "central cause".
