OCCUPIED JERUSALEM, (PIC)– Islamic and National forces in Jerusalem held a press conference of Thursday entitled “From Jerusalem to the Tahrir Square” in which they expressed their support for the Egyptian people and their revolution.

Sheikh Ekrema Sabri, the head of the Supreme Islamic Council, said that it was natural for Jerusalem to relate to Cairo and for Palestine to relate to Egypt, as we are one Umma and one land and stressed that the conference was to express affinity for Egypt and its people, adding that people’s wishes should be respected.

“We, in Beit al-Maqdis [Jerusalem] and the precincts of Beit al-Maqdis send our warmest greetings to the [people in] Tahrir Square,” said Sabri, praying for justice and freedom from oppression for all peoples of the world.

He also expressed support for the Egyptian people and wished them success in their revolution.

For his part, Sheikh Raed Salah, head of the Islamic movement in 1948-occupied Palestine, said that Egypt was behind the victory in Hittin, which was a prelude to the liberation of Jerusalem from the European Crusaders and Egypt was behind the victory at Ein Jalout which opened the way for liberating Palestine from the Tatars.
