Trump's unilateral illegal decision condemnable: MCSL

Trump-MCSL-860-01

The Muslim Council of Sri Lanka has charged that the unilateral and illegal decision made by US President Donald Trump recognizing Jerusalem as Israel's capital is condemnable.

This is stated in a letter addressed to President Trump with a copy to the US Ambassador in Sri Lanka. The letter states: "This is a totally illegitimate and ill-advised decision, which contradicts international laws and resolutions, and violates the sanctity of the holy city of Jerusalem. This is a declaration of war against the entire global Muslim population. All Palestinians, Arabs and Muslims will resist this across the world.

We are certain the majority of people in the USA and the peoples of the free world too will not condone your unilateral illegal decision. Both Muslims and Christians revere Bait Al-Muqaddes also known as the Al Aqsa Mosque, the third most important mosque and the sacred city of Jerusalem. It is also in Islamic history that Muslims first turned towards its direction in prayer. It without a doubt should be the capital of free Palestine. Your unilateral decision is seen as dangerous and provocative by everyone in the Muslim world.

We kindly urge you to reconsider your decision, and lead a peace process that will give the legitimate rights of the Palestinian people and bring peace to the entire Middle East and the world. We thank you for your consideration and look forward to your help in realizing the dreams of the Palestinian people to live in peace and dignity."
