AMMAN — Secretary General of the Royal Committee for Jerusalem Affairs (RCJA) Abdullah Kanaan stressed the importance of supporting Jerusalem’s youth to face Israel’s daily fierce attacks that target their life, education and future, according to the Jordan News Agency, Petra.اضافة اعلان

In a statement on Saturday, on the occasion of the International Youth Day (IYD), Kanaan referred to the pressing and prompt need to support young Jerusalemites in line with the supportive pan-Arab and Islamic stances.

Despite the comprehensive Israeli restrictions, Jerusalem’s youth still constitute the first line of defense for Palestine, he said. He cited their initiatives to revive the holy city’s economic conditions and develop their skills to join the labor market.

Kanaan maintained that other initiatives seek to expose Israel’s practices in the town of Silwan and Jerusalem’s Sheikh Jarrah neighborhood.

RCJA affirms Royal directives, primarily His Majesty’s calls for the necessity to engage youth in the decision-making policy and push the reform path forward, he said.

On the educational level, Kanaan stressed the need to revisit Jordan’s school and university curricula and educational platforms to teach mandatory courses on the Palestinian cause and Jerusalem.

This plan would also counter Israel’s programs that tamper with Palestine’s history and its Arab identity, which would retain Jerusalem alive and keep Jerusalem’s youth at the forefront of pan-Arab priorities, he added.
