The General Secretariat for Fatwa Authorities Worldwide: Moving the US Embassy to Jerusalem Disrupts Regional Religious-Based Conflicts and Wars

Wednesday, December 6, 2017
In a news statement issued on Wednesday, the General Secretariat for Fatwa Authorities Worldwide warned of the ramifications of moving the US embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.
The American President, Donald Trump’s resolution to move the US embassy to Jerusalem and declare it Israel’s capital is a dangerous step that will create more tension, instability and conflicts within the Middle East.
From his part, the Secretary-General of the General Secretariat for Fatwa Authorities Worldwide, Dr. Ibrahim Negm, stated that President Trump’s resolution will be strongly rejected by the Muslim and Arab world and it will give ground for dangerous ramifications including endless regional chaos and religious-based-conflicts. “The US entirely disregards the efforts exerted to achieve peace and a two-state solution to the Palestinian-Israeli conflict,” Dr. Negm said.
