OIC criticises bill declaring Al Quds as Jewish capital

(Wam) / 28 December 2011

JEDDAH - The Secretary General of the Organisation of Islamic Cooperation (OIC), Professor Ekmeleddin Ihsanoglu, strongly condemned the bill on the declaration of the occupied city of Al-Quds “a capital of Israel and of the Jewish people”, regarding it as a direct aggression against the Palestinian people and their inalienable rights.

Ihsanoglu added that the legislative and administrative measures being taken by the Israeli occupation authority with a view to altering the legal status of the occupied city of Al-Quds are a flagrant violation of international law and international legitimacy resolutions which state that Al-Quds is part of the Palestinian territories occupied in 1967, stressing that all these procedures are both invalid and illegitimate.

The Secretary General called on the UNSC, the Quartet and all actors to intervene in order to put an end to Israel’s policies of racial discrimination.
