The Honorary President of Parliamentary Assembly of the Mediterranean (PAM) Mohamed Abul Enein said that he expects that Al-Azhar’s conference would be the spark for a worldwide revolution calling for liberating Palestine.
On the sidelines Al-Azhar International Conference to back Jerusalem as the main capital of occupied Palestine currently held in Cairo، Abul Enein told Sada ElBalad that now is the time to reclaim our rights.
“The time has come to plan for it adequately; as the Grand Imam (of Al-Azhar) said،” he said، adding “no one can defeat us، but we are the ones who have defeated ourselves with our wrong plans.”
Abul Enein stressed the need to support the Palestinians، providing funds and all forms of support for them.
Abul Enein is currently participating in Al Azhar’s two-day international conference on January 17-18، for backing Jerusalem as the proposed capital of Palestine.
Al Azhar invited scholars and politicians، Islamic and Christian leaders، and regional and international organisations concerned with the Jerusalem case. The conference will discuss several working papers on 3 main points under its theme "The Arabian Identity of Jerusalem and its Message."
The conference is set to issue several recommendations emphasising the Palestinian people's rights in establishing their state with Jerusalem as its capital، and also to protect sacred areas in the city.
