AMMONNEWS - Arab scholars on Saturday sent a cable to His Majesty King Abdullah, in which they expressed appreciation and respect for his “brave” efforts in defending Jerusalem and its holy sites.

The scholars and researchers were participating in a workshop organised by “A doctor at every factory” programme that was held at the University of Jordan, in cooperation with the Arab Industrial Development and Mining Organisation and the Islamic Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organisation, the Jordan News Agency, Petra, reported.

In the cable, the experts — representing Egypt, Iraq, Algeria, Tunisia, Morocco, Palestine, Libya, Bahrain, Sudan and Lebanon — said that the Hashemite custodianship over holy sites dates back to era of Sherif Hussein Bin Ali, and the world has realised the important role of Jordan in defending Islam’s tolerance and holy sites.

They also expressed their appreciation and respect for His Majesty’s continuous efforts in supporting science and scholars, and his vision for developing academic research and innovation.

They also issued a statement denouncing the US decision and expressing their support to Jordan in defending Jerusalem.

In the statement, they said: “As Arab scholars, experts and researchers representing our countries... and based on the history of the Arab and Islamic nation, we reaffirm that Jerusalem is an Arab city and is the capital of Palestine.”
