Sudan Says Arab Revolts a Prelude to Liberating Jerusalem
Zechariah 12:2-3, “Behold, I will make Jerusalem a cup of trembling unto all the people round about, when they shall be in the siege both against Judah [and] against Jerusalem. And in that day will I make Jerusalem a burdensome stone for all people: all that burden themselves with it shall be cut in pieces, though all the people of the earth be gathered together against it.”
SNLM – “A senior figure in the ruling National Congress Party (NCP) in Sudan said today that recent revolts in the Arab world is the beginning of the move towards liberating Jerusalem from Israeli occupation.
The secretary for organizations at the NCP Qutbi Al-Mahdi told the founding conference of the Association of Women for Jerusalem held in Khartoum that the revolutionary tide and awakening in the region is a precursor to the liberation of the disputed city.
Popular revolts sweeping across the Arab world over the past two months have toppled the leaders of Tunisia and Egypt, inspiring protests in some Gulf countries and an outright rebellion in Libya. Sudan says that these regimes are gone because they oppressed the local Islamist movements.
Israel considers all of Jerusalem its capital, a claim that has not won international recognition.
Al-Mahdi said that once the unrest unfolds the people in the Arab world will then devote all their energies towards Al-Aqsa holy mosque in Jerusalem.
The NCP official urged Muslims to counter what he described as the Jewish conspiracy to displace the inhabitants of Jerusalem and building The Temple Mount of King Solomon.
The 8th-century Al-Aqsa mosque also stands on the stone esplanade, about the size of a large city square. Judaism’s Western Wall, a Jewish prayer site believed to be a perimeter wall of the second biblical Temple, sits just below.
In Muslim tradition, prophet Mohammad ascended into heaven from the rock at the center of what is now the Dome of the Rock.
Al-Mahdi suggested that Arab regimes are complicit in what the Jews are doing to Al-Aqsa mosque and their plans to make Jerusalem their capital.” Read More.
