Sharjah 24 – WAM: The Muslim Council of Elders, chaired by the Grand Imam of Al Azhar Dr. Ahmed Al Tayyeb, has warned of the consequences of the US President's decision to move the US embassy to occupied Al-Quds.
In its statement on Wednesday, the Council said that everyone had hoped that the US would fulfil its role and grant the appropriate rights to the true owners of the disputed territories.

The council added that it will hold the US fully responsible for the consequences of its hasty and erroneous decision to transfer its embassy to the Arab City of Jerusalem, a provocative step for over 1.8 billion Muslims around the world.

While voicing its complete rejection of the move, the Council stressed that at a time when the world’s intelligentsia is urging for more efforts towards fighting terrorism in all its destructive forms, there are some who are adding fuel to fire, giving terrorists further ground to wreak more havoc, and trigger more destructions and killings around the world.
