Chairman of the International Union of Muslim Scholars Yusuf Al-Qaradawi said that all Muslims around the world should be concerned about Al-Quds (Jerusalem) and defend it, stressed that this is not only a matter that affects Palestinians and Arabs.

“We emphasise and reiterate that Palestine is the first cause for all Muslims and it is a religious and moral duty to defend it,” Al-Qaradawi wrote on Twitter after the United States transferred its embassy from Tel Aviv to Al-Quds (Jerusalem).

In December 2017, US President, Donald Trump announced his administration’s decision to recognise Al-Quds (Jerusalem) as the capital of Israel and transfer its embassy to the occupied city. The new embassy was inaugurated on Monday.
