Chairman of the International Union of Muslim Scholars Yusuf Al-Qaradawi said that all Muslims around the world should be concerned about Jerusalem and defend it, stressed that this is not only a matter that affects Palestinians and Arabs.

“We emphasise and reiterate that Palestine is the first cause for all Muslims and it is a religious and moral duty to defend it,” Al-Qaradawi wrote on Twitter after the United States transferred its embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.

In December 2017, US President, Donald Trump announced his administration’s decision to recognise Jerusalem as the capital of Israel and transfer its embassy to the occupied city. The new embassy was inaugurated on Monday.
