Morocco: Minister Highlights Al-Quds Committee’s Role in Defending Palestinians’ Legitimate Rights

Cairo — The important role played by the Al-Quds Committee, chaired by His Majesty King Mohammed VI, in defending the legitimate rights of the Palestinian people and the Arab-Islamic identity of the Holy City, was highlighted, Thursday in Cairo, by the Minister of Youth, Culture and Communication, Mohamed Mehdi Bensaid.

Speaking at the opening of the 52nd Ordinary Session of the Council of Arab Ministers of Information, Bensaid emphasized the efforts of the Al-Quds Committee to confront the settlement plans and violations targeting Al-Haram Al-Qudsi Al-Sharif and the Al-Aqsa Mosque, and to support the resilience of the Holy City and its residents.

In an address, read on his behalf by the Secretary General of the Ministry, Mustapha Timi, Mr. Bensaid dwelt on the “honorable” record of the Bayt Mal Al-Quds Agency, under the direct supervision of His Majesty King Mohammed VI, Chairman of the Al-Quds Committee, in implementing field programs in cooperation with various official institutions of Arab and Islamic countries and civil organizations to support the Holy City, particularly in the field of education and schooling.

Given the centrality for Morocco of the Palestinian cause and the Arab identity of Al-Quds, the various media in the Kingdom “give an important place” to the Palestinian news to lift the veil on the suffering of the Palestinian people brother, and on the attempt to Judaize the monuments of the Holy City, which affects Muslims around the world, he added.

In this context, Bensaid called on the Council of Arab Ministers of Information to adopt effective media initiatives to monitor the implementation of decisions issued by the Al-Quds Committee and highlight the actions of the Bayt Mal Al-Quds Agency.

Thus, he stressed the need to mobilize all available means in the media and communication sector in Arab countries, to urge the international community to assume its responsibilities towards the Palestinian cause and work together to defend it.

The Minister noted that the current situation is witnessing increasing challenges facing the joint Arab action in the field of media and communication, due to the repercussions of COVID-19, calling, in this wake, a synergy of efforts to develop “our media” so that they are an effective tool to accompany the current developments and defend “our common causes.

In addition, the Minister highlighted the importance of coordination and joint cooperation between experts and actors in the field of media in the Arab countries, at a time when the Arab world is facing a real war on terrorism, and given the leading role of these media in the collective awareness.
