1.    Emphasize that the cause of Palestine and Al-Quds shall remain the main focal cause which makes it necessary for all our states, Parliaments and civil organizations, in the OIC space, to cooperate and coordinate in international and regional fora in order to support and defend it until the realization of the legitimate and inalienable rights of the Palestinian people in terms of the return of refugees, liberation from occupation and establishment of the independent Palestinian state with Al-Quds as its capital. As the city of Al-Quds is the spiritual capital of the Islamic Ummah and the eternal capital of the state of Palestine, we consider it as a red line which cannot be crossed.
2.    Re-emphasize that the city of Al-Quds is an integral part of the occupied Palestinian territories as stated in Security Council Resolutions No. 242 of 1967 and 338 of 1973, to which the Fourth Geneva of 1948 is applicable, as provided in several UN Security Council Resolutions. Strongly condemn authorities of occupation for the repeated violations of sanctities in the city of Al-Quds by building the separation wall and settlements as well as continuation of excavation works under the blessed Al-Aqsa Mosque which will lead to undermine the supporting pillars. Also denounces Israel’s illegal measures and practices which run counter to international resolutions and laws carried out by the occupations authorities in the city of AL-Quds, aimed at the Judaization of the Holy city and obliterating its Arab and Islamic landmarks.
3.    Strongly rejects the plan by Israel to declare the occupied City of Al Quds as the Capital of the Zionist entity and the Jewish People. This declaration is considered a direct aggression on the Palestinian people and their inalienable rights. Categorically reject all the Israeli discourses mentioning “The Greater Al-Qods along with any other statements concerning the solution of Al-Quds issue on the basis of placing it under international mandate.
4.    Stress the importance of following up and implementing the international resolutions on the Palestinian cause, especially those concerning ensuring the political and civil rights of the Palestinian people which will enable them to establish their independent state with Al-Quds as its capital.
5.    Welcome achievement of the Palestinian national unity, and consider it as the corner stone for renewal of the Palestinian drive aimed at realizing its sublime aims of the total liberation of the Palestinian soil and the establishment of the independent Palestinian state with Al-Quds as its capital. Commend the reconciliation agreement which was signed by the delegations of both Fatah and Hamas on 23rd April 2014 which is considered an implementation of the Cairo and Makka agreements as well as Doha Declarations.
6.    Stress our strong backing to the efforts of the State of Palestine to rally international support for achieving the inalienable Palestinian rights, for most of which is their right to self-determination and the establishment of their independent state with Al-Quds as its capital. Renew in this respect our appeal to the Security Council to consider with an approving eye the request submitted by the State of Palestine to gain the full membership of the United Nations.
7.    Emphasize our categorical rejection of “the Jewishness of the Israeli state”, and strongly support the stance of the Palestinian people and leaders of rejecting the Jewishness of the Hebrew state. Stress that resisting occupation is an inherent right of the Palestinian people.
8.    Call for lifting the blockade imposed on the Palestinian people, especially on Gaza strip, we call also for supporting the steadfastness of the Maghdessi citizens and for serious action to ensure release of the administrative detainees and prisoners. We condemn the criminal Israeli practices of torturing, isolating and humiliating them, we demand their immediate release.

Demand the prosecution of the Israeli officials for the war crimes which they have committed in Gaza strip and the rest of the occupied Palestinian territories. Denounce the continuing practices of isolating and blockading the Palestinian people and the Israeli repressive measures such as murder, demolition of houses, bulldozing lands, establishing settlements and erecting the racist separation wall. Call for wide actions for ending the blockade. We also request to expedite action in order to finalize the operations of rehabilitating the strip and eliminating the effects of the barbaric Israeli aggression from its landmarks.
10.    Support the accession of the State of Palestine to all international agreements and organizations, including the International Criminal Court (ICC) and the International Court of Justice.
11.    Strongly condemn Israel’s refusal to allow UNESCO’s technical mission to investigate attacks on Holy places in the old Al-Quds, denounce Israel’s attempts aimed at usurping and Judaizing the Palestinian heritage as well as falsifying the history of Palestine, and the inclusion of the Holy Ibrahim Mosque in the city of Al Khalil (Hebron) and Bilal Ibn Rabah Mosque in Bethlehem in the list of its heritage. Call, in this regard, the UNESCO to implement the resolutions adopted by its Executive Council (186th session) concerning Palestinian historic and cultural sites ; in order to prevent Israel from destroying the Palestinian heritage, and warn that the Israeli attempts to legalize its null procedures in the occupied territories may lead to the explosion  of the situation in the region and rekindle religious conflict in the area for which Israel should be fully responsible. Calls on the international community to curb Israel – the occupation force – to compel it to halt its serious aggressions and disregard of peace and security in the region.
12.    Request the managers of the funds created for AL-Quds to operationalize them in support of the steadfastness of Al-Quds people and settling them in their city. Also appeal to the Arab and Muslim Ummah, peoples and governments for further solidarity to confront the Israeli arrogance and the occupation authorities’ express disesteem of the historical, cultural, and religious rights of the Palestinian people.
