The gathering for Jerusalem in the heart of London is very symbolic. As the country that settled the occupation in Palestine and facilitated the migration of the occupier from all over the world to settle them in Palestine during British mandate started 1917.
Accordingly, the call of the Palestinian Forum in Britain was renewed annually for the eighth time to rally the Arabs in Britain all around Jerusalem, where Love of Jerusalem is a very clear signal of its ultimate importance to Arabs, Muslims and Christians.

Jerusalem unites us all. It is one of the rare issues that people always united on, and have never disagreed upon.
Salah al-Din al-Ayyubi was able, under her banner, to mobilize the powers of the nation, unify its states, transcend its differences, and gather its word until it was clearly possible that it was the right moment to liberate it on a remarkable night and a great historical mobilization, from which the world continues to draw lessons until now.
Salah al-Din had successfully managed to stop the injustice and oppression of the rulers. He said: “Some sultans believe that oppression preserves the ruling regime and that the public usually follow their rulers, so they think that stillness is subjection until people surprise the world with devastating revolution to oust the injustice.
Jerusalem is an issue that does not accept any kind of manipulation or ill-treatment. Throughout history it has been a lever for those who care about it.
Accordingly, the high profile reputation for Al-Faruq Omar Ibn Al-Khattab, and its liberator after him, Salah Al-Din, was so exceptional, while people don’t even remember the name of the ruler who abandoned Jerusalem after the Omari conquest and does not care about him or even mention his name.
Today, the Israeli Occupation is doing all possible means and tricks to annoy locals in Jerusalem, the most prominent of which is replacing Muslim and Christian people in Jerusalem by Jewish settlers from all over the world.
Even the Christians of Jerusalem, who exceeded thirty-five thousand seventy years ago, dwindled to a few hundred instead of increasing and multiplying by the natural logic of population growth; The Western countries colluding with Israel facilitated their immigration to various countries.
In addition to the dangerous excavations under the Al-Aqsa Mosque, the frequent incursions into it, the pursuit of sharing worship in it in time and space, the demolition of Jerusalemite homes, the imposition of exorbitant taxes on them, the continuous efforts to purchase their real estate, the termination of lease contracts for the tenants, and the seizure of absentees’ properties and many other details that one article narrows down to listing.
Caring for Jerusalem and its cause is a priority that should not be neglected. Accordingly, all should do whatever they can to end the unlawful Israeli occupation of Jerusalem and strongly reject their claim that Jerusalem is their undivided Capital.
Let us ask ourselves every night before we sleep what we have presented to Jerusalem and what we can offer tomorrow, and how we can join forces for the sake of its blessed cause. We are totally confident that the Liberation of Jerusalem is now within the reach.
