Muslims in Oyo State on Friday organised a peaceful protest against the continued occupation of Palestinian land by Israel as well as the transfer of the United States Embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.

It would be recalled that the United States had on May 14 formally opened her embassy in Jerusalem, saying it remains the capital of  Israel.

But speaking on the sidelines of the protest,  Mr Atta Rasheed, the Coordinator of the Al-Qudus Foundation, said Israel had been occupying portions of Palestine land unlawfully since 1948.

Rasheed called on all peace-loving people of the world and nations with sympathy for justice and human dignity  not only to condemn the act but sanction Israel, US and their allies.

He urged other nations to severe their relationship with Israel by withdrawing their ties.

In his contribution, the Chief  Imam of Alegongo, Sheikh Ismail Bushari, said Muslims were unhappy with the wrongful occupation of Palestine land by Israel.

“Muslims, Nigerian government, United Nations and other countries are not in support of the US moving her embassy to Jerusalem because it is against the rights of the Palestinians,’’ he said. (NAN)
