Jordanians back King’s custodianship over Jerusalem sanctities, says House speaker

Doha, Head of the Arab Parliamentary Union (AIPU), Atef Tarawneh said Jordanians stand united behind His Majesty King Abdullah II’s in his custodianship over Islamic and Christian sanctities in Jerusalem.

In a speech at the 140th session of the General Assembly of the Inter-Parliamentary Union (IPU) in Doha, Tarawneh warned of the continuing Israeli violations against the holy sites.

Stirring up sentiments of Arabs, Muslims, and the region’s Christians causes grave harm and dwarf efforts of fighting terrorism across the world, he told the participants.

Tarawneh warned of the U.S. step to recognize Israel’s legitimacy over the occupied Syrian Golan territory, adding this decision is “improvised and arbitrary and may have a great danger and catastrophic consequences on the region and the world.”
