Grand Ayatullah Sistani Condemns the Trump Administration’s Decision on Jerusalem

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم
In the Name of God, the Beneficent, the Merciful

Commenting on the United State’s decision to recognize the city of Jerusalem (al-Quds) as the capital of the Israeli entity, an official source from the Office of Sayyid Sistani in the Holy City of Najaf announced the following:

ان هذا القرار مدان ومستنكر، وقد اساء الى مشاعر مئات الملايين من العرب والمسلمين، ولكنه لن يغير من حقيقة ان القدس ارض محتلة يجب ان تعود الى سيادة اصحابها الفلسطينيين مهما طال الزمن ، ولا بد ان تتضافر جهود الامة وتتحد كلمتها في هذا السبيل والله ولي التوفيق.

Indeed, this decision is condemned and denounced, and it has offended the feelings of hundreds of millions of Arabs and Muslims. However, it will not change the fact that Jerusalem (al-Quds) is an occupied land that must return to the sovereignty of its owners, no matter how much time comes to pass. The efforts of the community (ummah) must come together and its position must be united on this path. God is the guardian of success.

(Note: the Palestinians)
