The Zionists used the Covid-19 issue to accelerate the “Deal of the Century” plan.

“Muslims must unite,” said Ismail, while asking Jokowi to help protect the Muslim holy sites from the Judaization process.

Second, he requested Jokowi to intensify communication with other countries in fighting for the rights of the Palestinian people.

It includes mobilizing support from organizations at regional and international levels in investigating crimes committed by Israel.

“Such a position will certainly be able to suppress Israeli occupation,” he continued.

Third, he called for an Islamic Summit to support the Palestinian position. According to him, Muslims must also strengthen political, diplomatic, economic and media networks to realize Palestinian independence, in accordance with their rights and rights.

Fourth, he asked Jokowi to reject the exploitation of normalization carried out by several Arab and Islamic countries in implementing Jewish settlements.

“It’s like stabbing the Palestinian people from behind, while Israel continues to launch aggression and violations against the Palestinian people and their land,” he added.

Finally, he said, the illegal occupation was part of an Israeli provocation scheme to increase tensions in the West Bank.

“The Palestinian people will certainly not remain silent watching the Israeli occupation and such violations. The Palestinian people will be strong in defending their land and upholding their rights, “he said. (T/RE1/P2)
