Sheikh Ekrema Sabri, the head of the higher Islamic authority in Palestine, has said that Jerusalem is an Arab, Islamic city and none is authorized to give up one inch of it.

 

He said in a press statement on Saturday that Jerusalem should return to Arab, Islamic sovereignty and the Israeli occupation should come to an end.

 

The Sheikh warned that the Israeli leaders are adamant on going ahead in the settlement drive in occupied Jerusalem and would only stop when faced by serious pressure from the world community.

 

He pointed to the growing demolition of Palestinian homes and rapid judaization steps, asking Arabs and Muslims, rulers and ruled, to shoulder their responsibilities toward the holy city.

 

There could be no peace in light of continued settlement activity and there could be no viable Palestinian state amidst such "cancerous" expansion of settlements, Sabri concluded.
