Attacks on Al-Aqsa Mosque may cause undesirable consequences, Warned the OIC secretary general. The Israeli police incursions into the Muslim Al-Aqsa mosque in Jerusalem could lead to undesirable consequences, the Secretary General of the Organization of the Islamic Conference (OIC), Professor Ekmeleddin Ihsanoglu, said. "The intensification of Israeli aggressions against Islamic sanctities in the holy city of Al-Qods entails an earnest and firm stand by the Ummah [nation] to defend its holy sites," Well, his warning is beginning to come true it seems.
Troops could possibly be coming to Jerusalem to protect Palestinians and the Al Aqsa Mosque. This report comes from Mamuju, the capital of the Indonesian province of West Sulawesi. The Partai Keadilan Sejahtera or commonly known as the Justice and Prosperous party, is Islamist in the sense that it calls for a central role for Islam in public life. The PKS wants to send troops to Jerusalem and are calling on their President to enact this. Given this tiny little province has the “Chutzpah” that other Arab nations seem to have lost, maybe this will embarrass a few of them to step up to the plate:
Mamuju, West Sulawesi (ANTARA News) - The Mamuju chapter of the Justice and Prosperous Party (PKS) has urged President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono to send troops to help restore peace in Jerusalem.
"It`s has been one of our agreements in our coalition that SBY has been asked to be active in restoring the world`s peace, especially in supporting the struggle of Palestine,"
Hajrul Malik, secretary of the local PKS chapter, said here on Wednesday. The supports should be delivered not only through diplomatic channel, but also by sending peace keeping troops, he said. He also asked President SBY to maintain the policy of having no diplomatic ties with Israel.
"We have witnessed that the Israeli military has violated the international humanitarian law, especially when they attacked the place of worship (Al-Quds in Jerusalem)," he said. source
