The head of the Board of Trustees of the International Jerusalem Institution called on Monday for the leaders of Arab and Islamic states to carry out political and diplomatic moves to isolate Israel.
Shaikh Yusuf Al-Qaradawi made his comments in response to Israel’s violations of the sanctity of Al-Aqsa Mosque, Safa news agency reported.
The veteran scholar’s message to the heads of state appealed for them to turn to the UN and the Security Council for resolutions reinforcing the Islamic identity of the Noble Sanctuary of Al-Aqsa in order to undermine Israeli plans to partition the holy site. Shaikh Al-Qaradawi also called on Arabs and Muslims to move against the Israeli occupation authorities to prevent them from splitting Al-Aqsa Mosque as well as to stop their “arbitrary measures” against Palestinian Jerusalemites.
“Today, the government of the Israeli occupation consists of a coalition of extremist Zionists, so it is internally unstable,” Al-Qaradawi said in his message. “The occupation government is afraid of a new intifada in the occupied lands, including Jerusalem.”
The shaikh added that the US and European cover provided for Israel’s occupation is in retreat.
“Hence, the occupation is unable to impose a new reality regarding the issue of Al-Aqsa Mosque.”
For this reason, he stressed the importance of taking this opportunity to undermine the Israeli plans targeting Al-Aqsa and the city of Jerusalem, in addition to the rest of the occupied Palestinian territories.
Al-Qaradawi hailed the popular efforts being exerted by Palestinians all over the occupied territories.
He said that these efforts are essential to undermine Israel’s Judaisation plans.
