Hezbollah Secretary-General Hassan Nasrallah said on Monday that Israeli-Palestinian negotiations were doomed to fail, and called on Muslims and Christians to take Jerusalem from Israel.

“Every Palestinian, Arab, Muslim, and Christian has a national, popular, and ethical responsibility towards Al-Quds. It needs from all of us seriousness and action," Nasrallah said at a forum entitled “Declaration of Al-Quds as the capital of Palestine, the Arabs and Muslims,” according to Hezbollah media station Al Manar.

Warning that Israeli settlers were "Judaizing" and "desecrating" Jerusalem, Nassrallah said, “We are not responsible for the occupation of Al-Quds, but we bear the responsibility for the continued occupation of Al-Quds, and every faction and people should be prepared for questioning on the Judgment Day over what actions he took towards Al-Quds's liberation."

Any sort of peace Negotiations, the Hezbollah leader said, are bound to fail. “The choice of negotiations to return Jerusalem to the Palestinians is not realistic because Israel considers the city to be its permanent capital - something being adopted by the West - and this is what US President Barack Obama indicated in his ‘holy commitment’ towards Israel’s security.”
