TEHRAN (Tasnim) – The secretary general of the Palestinian Islamic Jihad movement said Palestine and Jerusalem al-Quds will not be liberated without the unity of the Islamic and Arab world.
“There will be no unity without Jerusalem al-Quds and Palestine, and there is no Jerusalem al-Quds and Palestine without unity of the Ummah (community),” Ziyad Al-Nakhala said during a speech at the 35th International Conference of Muslim Unity in Tehran on Tuesday.
“The hostile Western campaign targeting all components of our Ummah … is the major threat to our unity and our heritage.”
He went on to say that “final victory over the Zionist occupation entity needs the development and progress of the Arab and Muslim nations, as well as a real Islamic unity which will be able to defeat the Zionist project which is targeting our history, land and the region.”
The International Islamic Unity Conference is organized annually by the World Forum for Proximity of Islamic Schools of Thought.
