Call for Urgent Action Against America's Quds Decision

Hours after Trump's declaration, Ministry of Awqaf and Islamic Affairs urged all imams to dedicate their Friday sermon's to talk about Al Quds and Al Aqsa Mosque.

Egypt and Morocco have moved swiftly to censure a controversial decision by the United States recognizing Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, warning that the move will offend cultural and religious sensibilities and provoke unnecessary tensions in the Middle East.A Foreign ministry statement released in Cairo on Wednesday said the adoption of such unilateral resolutions is contrary to global legitimacy and will not change the legal status of Jerusalem as being under occupation and the inadmissibility of any actions that would change the status quo in the city.

Iranian President Hassan Rouhani denounced as "provocative and dangerous" the USA decision to recognize Al-Quds (Jerusalem) as the Israeli regime's capital, calling for concerted action by Muslim and peace-loving nations to defy such an illegal measure.

Palestinian leaders had previously warned the move would threaten a two-state solution.

Alwasat Islamic Party denounced the move by saying that the U.S. decision is against all global treaties and decisions which recognise Israel as an occupying power, which highlights the fact that United States disrespects the worldwide legitimacy. It annexed the area in 1980 and sees it as its exclusive domain.
