JERICHO, President Mahmoud Abbas said in a televised statement on Friday that our Palestinian people rise from the rubble of disasters and conspiracies, in order to restore their existence, identity and rights, as he launched the activities of the Jerusalem as Capital of Islamic Culture 2019.
He said the “Jerusalem as Capital of Islamic Culture” activities confirm that Jerusalem will not be alone, and that the steadfast Palestinian people will not remain alone in the face of colonialism and occupation.
The President continued, The people of Palestine, and millions of Arabs and Muslims and the free of the universe, are standing in the face of the shame deal [of the century] that aims to take away Jerusalem from our hearts and minds and our reality.
He called on the friendly and brotherly nations to visit Jerusalem as a token of support for its people and the entire Palestinian people facing prolonged Israeli occupation.
last January, the Islamic Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (ISESCO) announced Jerusalem as the Capital of Islamic Culture for 2019.
