The Muslim world stands united in support of Palestine — Momani

AMMAN — The outcome of Wednesday’s meeting of Organisation of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) has shown that the Muslim's world stands united in support for the eternal right of Palestinians to Jerusalem, a senior official has said.

Minister of State for Media Affairs Mohammad Momani told Jordan TV on Thursday that the Islamic World made it clear that it rejects the US’ decision to recognise Jerusalem as Israel's capital and move the US embassy to the occupied city. 

Momani underlined the vigorous Jordanian diplomatic, political and media efforts that preceded the OIC extraordinary summit in Istanbul, adding that during the time when US President Trump's announcement was looming, Jordan’s position by His Majesty King Abdullah was a step ahead of all other players, as it was “courageous and carried a clear warning of the repercussions of this decision, which is a violation of international legitimacy”. 

Momani, who is also the government spokesperson, stressed that Jordan was at the forefront of countries that faced the decision firmly, calling on the Arab League to meet and take part actively in the OIC extraordinary summit.

Momani said that the Jordanian-Palestinian coordination is constant and there are ideas already contemplated by the two sides, aimed to create the right international impact to address the repercussions of the move.

Momani said that Jordan has been warning that extremist would take advantage of such a situation and the absence of regional stability to advance their agendas. 

In regards to Jordan and the decision of the International Criminal Court regarding the Sudanese president, Momani said that Jordan would deal with the situation within a legal framework.

 

Momani praised the media coverage and media outlets in Jordan for the efforts in covering the events following Trump’s announcement on Jerusalem.

The American TRUMP World is also United. NO MUSLIMS SHOULD BE ALLOWED INTO THE UNITED STATES. STOP AIDE TO ALL ISLAMIC TERRORIST BRUTAL NATIONS. WE ARE A CHRISTIAN-JUDAIC NATION. TAKE YOUR OIL AND GET OF OUR COUNTRY.

IF THERE IS ANY ONE POLICY THAT I AM 100% IN SUPPORT OF THE MINISTER AND THE JORDANIAN GOVERNMENT, IT IS THIS ISSUE OF THE ICC AND THE SUDANESE PRESIDENT. ITS HIGH TIME THAT SMALL AND SO-CALLED POOR COUNTRIES EXERCISE THEIR INDEPENDECE. ALL STATISTICAL CASE CONTROL STUDIES ABOUT THE ISSUE OF CRIME AGAINST HUMANITY WILL SHOW THAT IT IS ONLY THOSE ALLEGED COMMITTED BY POOR AND DEVELOPING COUNTRIES THAT GOES TO ICC. DOES THIS MEAN THAT DEVELOPED COUNTRIES HAVE NEVER BEEN ENGAGED IN WAR CRIMES?. I DO SUPPORT JORDAN FOR NOT ENFORCING A ONE-SIDED ENFORCEMENT OF CRIMES COMMITTED ON DAILY BASIS BY THE MASTERS OF THE WORLD. WHAT MORE, THERE ARE LOTS OF LEGAL DOCTRINES THAT PROTECTS JORDAN FROM NOT BEING THE POLIMAN OF THE SO-CALLED ICC.
