Islam Times: The conference was addressed by the leaders of Palestine and Pakistan and they stressed upon the Muslim world, specially the Pakistanis that it was high time they step up their efforts for mobilizing global support for Palestine ’s liberation from Israeli occupation in order to avert Zionists’ plans of razing Al Aqsa mosque.
Representative of the Hamas movement in Lebanon and member of its political bureau, Osama Hamdan, who made a recorded address to the conference, emphasized that defense of Palestine was in fact defense of Pakistan because Zionists believed they could never successfully occupy Palestine without first destroying the ideological Muslim nations like Pakistan.

God willing, the day will come when the Palestine will be freed from the Zionist occupation,” he said, adding that it was foremost duty of Muslims was to put pressure on those countries responsible for Gaza siege and other neighboring countries to open their borders with Gaza so that vital supplies could reach to the Palestinian Muslims.
He warned that “Palestinians could never give up their struggle for freedom because of siege. Palestinians prefer honorable death to ignoble compromise and subjugation.”
He stressed that Muslims must work to remove American pressure against Palestinian cause which had been the main stumbling block in resolution of Palestinian problem by ending Israeli occupation.
