Senior Palestinian Official: Bringing Jerusalem Back Under Muslim Control Is Main Objective of Islamic Awakening
Earlier this year Khaled al-Qoddoumi told Ahlul Bayt News Agency that the ultimate goal of the movement was to free the entire Palestinian land, destroy the Zionist regime and rescue the revered Quds from the claws of the Zionists.
Khaled al-Qoddoumi, the senior Hamas representative in Iran, announced today that the main objective of the Islamic Awakening is to bring Jerusalem back under Muslim control.
Iranian Fars News reported:
Collapse of dictatorial regimes by popular uprisings in the region has posed a major threat to the Israeli regime, a senior Palestinian figure said, and added that bringing Beit al-Moghaddas (Jerusalem) back to Muslim control is the main demand of the recent Muslim revolutions and growing Islamic awakening in the region.
The representative of the Palestinian Hamas movement in Tehran, Khaled al-Qoddoumi, pointed to the recent popular uprisings in the region and their effects on the Palestinians’ popular movements, and said, “Today, the enemy is really feeling a threat and danger because those regime which unfortunately served Israel’s goals and supported it have now collapsed.”
“Governments in Egypt and Tunisia that were supporters of the Israeli regime on the Middle-East’s political scenes have now collapsed and this is a threat to Israel, the enemy,” he stated.
Qoddoumi pointed to the expulsion of the Israeli envoy from Egypt and anti-Israeli demonstrations in Tunisia, and stressed that people in region want a return of Beit al-Moghaddas to Muslims.
“The return of Beit al-Moghaddas is the demand of Islamic awakening,” he reiterated.
He further stressed unity among Palestinian groups as a priority for all Palestinians given the changing climate in the Middle-East.
Egyptians raided the Israeli embassy in Cairo earlier this month and forced the Israeli ambassador to leave their country.
