Chairman of the International Union of Muslim Scholars Yusuf Al-Qaradawi said that all Muslims around the world should be concerned about Jerusalem and defend it, stressed that this is not only a matter that affects Palestinians and Arabs.
“We emphasise and reiterate that Palestine is the first cause for all Muslims and it is a religious and moral duty to defend it,” Al-Qaradawi wrote on Twitter after the United States transferred its embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.

7. Police in Swedish Municipality Refuse to Consult Public on Islamic Call to Prayer Broadcast
Police in the Swedish municipality of Karlskrona are expected to grant the local Islamic association the right to broadcast the call to prayer in public and are refusing to consult local residents on the decision because it would be too much hard work.
The Islamic Cultural Association in Karlskrona expects to receive a positive decision from the local police early next week on whether they will be allowed to continue to broadcast the call to prayer, Swedish broadcaster SVT reports.
The request, which was passed on to the police following a referral by the environment and social committee, would see the call to prayer be broadcast from the minarets of the Kungsmarken mosque, one of the largest in the country.
8. OIC to impose political and economic sanctions on supporters of US Embassy move
The Organisation of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) has said that it will impose economic and political sanctions on countries, officials, parliaments, companies or individuals who support the US Embassy move from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem. The OIC condemned “in the strongest terms” the illegal US decision.
“This is an attack on the historical, legal, natural and national rights of the Palestinian people,” said the OIC, “which undermines the standing of the United Nations and rule of international law and thus represents an affront to international peace and security.”
It urged all states not to support the US decision to recognise Jerusalem as the capital of Israel and not to move their diplomatic missions to Jerusalem. “The OIC shall adopt actions to ensure that companies and other actors that choose to benefit from the Israeli colonial regime are deprived of the opportunity of accessing OIC markets.
