ISESCO calls world to stop Jerusalem Judaization

RABAT, Sept 4 (KUNA) -- The Islamic Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization (ISESCO) called here Friday the international community to exert immediate effort to stop the "Zionist settlement plans in Jerusalem" that aim to Judaize the holy city and kick out its Palestinian residents.
In a press release, ISESCO voiced the call to member countries of the Organization of the Islamic Conference (OIC), permanent members of the United Nations Security Council (UNSC), international and legal organizations, and bodies concerned with peace and justice in the world.
It said that Israeli forces are planning to provide housing units to 2,000 new Jewish settlers in the city and to connect Israeli settlements in the West Bank, making Palestinian residential areas scattered isolated islets.
ISESCO pointed out that Israeli forces were also expanding settlements in the West Bank, especially around Jerusalem and in Palestinian neighborhoods in Old Jerusalem.
It emphasized that it was important that the presidency of the Islamic summit takes a strong stance as soon as possible and to hold an immediate meeting to discuss the dangerous developments that threaten the holy city.(end) sf.ris KUNA 041314 Sep 09NNNN
