Lawmakers described the newly passed law in Israel that aims to strengthen the occupying regime’s hand on Beit-ul-Moqaddas as yet another “futile step”, stressing that the international community would stand up against the move.

In a recent talk with ICANA, Mohammad Reza Amirhasankhani said that “Israel’s actions are all against human rights and international laws, yet it carries out what it wishes since it is backed by the US.”

“But these actions will not be ignored by governments [around the world], and Israeli-US actions [against Palestinians’ rights] will only backfire,” he said. Israeli legislators have approved a bill that would streamline procedures for Israeli construction and expansion in the holy city. The bill, passed last week, effectively annexes Israeli settlements in the occupied West Bank.

It is widely seen as intended to make it more difficult to give up a part of Beit-ul-Moqaddas to the Palestinian Authority, which wants the city’s eastern half to be the capital of an independent Palestinian state. Israeli Public Security Minister Gilad Erdan said at the time that “we are telling the world that it doesn’t matter what the nations of the world say,” adding that “the time has come to express our Biblical right to the land.”

Pointing to the widespread condemnation of the US decision to recognize Beit-ul-Moqaddas as the capital of Israel, Amirhasankhani said the Palestinian issue is alive and will be more rigidly followed after the recent law passed in the Israeli parliament.  He blamed the US for the move by the Knesset, saying it was the outcome of the decision by US President Donald Trump on Quds.

Trump also said he intended to move the country’s embassy from Tel Aviv to the holy city.

Lawmaker Farhad Falahati said, “Israeli plans [regarding Beit-ul-Moqaddas] will not materialize, for we saw how the international community stood against [the US decision] to move its embassy to the holy city.”

He added that even many non-Muslim countries have now come to the defense of the Palestinian nation after seeing the irrational and lawless Israeli behavior. He also expressed regret over reports suggesting that some Muslim countries have covertly established relations with Israel, saying that they will feel regretful for their mistake.

Israel’s News 10 said in Dec. 2017 that Saudi Arabia and Egypt gave Trump the go-ahead to recognize Beit-ul-Moqaddas as the capital of Israel. Israel took control of the entirety of Beit-ul-Moqaddas after the 1967 Arab-Israeli war. It later annexed East Beit-ul-Moqaddas in a move that remains unrecognized by the international community.

Iran does not recognize the Israeli entity and considers it an occupying regime. It believes the entire land belongs to the Palestinian people.
