Steps must be taken on an urgent basis to stop the Judaization of Jerusalem. We must move quickly to protect the holy city.

Sheikh Hamad bin Khalifa al Thani, Qatar Emir, in opening remarks at the International Conference for the Defense of Al Quds in Doha.

“The return to Jerusalem cannot be achieved through slogans, speeches and conferences,” he continued in remarks made public through QNA.

Gulf News reports:

The UN Security Council should adopt a resolution for the formation of the fact-finding committee, Al Thani said, adding that it would be consistent with previous decisions taken by the Council calling on Israel to reverse the actions it took for the Judaization of the holy city, claimed as capital by both Palestinians and Israelis…

Palestinians should exert “every possible effort to preserve the Arab identity of Jerusalem”, “reinforce the national reconciliation process” and “prepare a comprehensive and expanded strategy for the various sectors and projects needed by the city,” he said.

Forceful words! Thoughts?
