Jordan: Israeli practices against Al-Aqsa fuel global extremism

Israel’s continued aggression against Al-Aqsa Mosque will “inflame and stimulate the environment that increases the behaviour of extremism and hatred all over the world”, the Committee of Palestine in the Jordanian government warned yesterday.

In a statement, the committee said: “Jordan has a firm position in support of Jerusalem and the holy sites therein. It calls on Israel to respect all agreements, international conventions and various bilateral and multilateral treaties regarding the situation within the city of Jerusalem.”

It stressed on the need to resolve the Palestinian issue through a “just and comprehensive solution in accordance with the resolutions of international legitimacy”. It also emphasised that a solution to the issue would ensure the establishment of an independent Palestinian state on Palestinian national soil, being the real gateway to resolve all disputes and conflicts in the region.

The commission invited the international community to assume its legal and moral responsibilities towards this issue by exercising real pressure on Israel to prevent it from continuing such provocative practices and push it in the direction of returning to the peace process and accepting the two-state solution.
