Arabic media is reporting on an event called the Youth Gathering for Al-Quds [Jerusalem] which took place in Valencia, Spain between 14-19 August and organized by the European Assembly for Al-Quds in participation with The Youth Association for Al-Quds. Perhaps the most important speaker listed in the event’s closing statement was Majed Al-Zeer, the Director-General of the Palestinian Return Centre, a part of the UK Hamas support infrastructure and that is close to the Global Muslim Brotherhood. Other speakers of note included Raed Fathi, said by knowledgable sources to be linked to the Muslim Brotherhood in Palestine (Islamic Movement) and Dima Tahbub likely a spokesperson for the Islamic Action Front, part of the Jordanian Muslim Brotherhood.
According to a GMBDW translation of the closing statement from the event:
- It was decided to open new branches of the European Assembly for Al-Quds in all European cities.

- Further efforts will will take place to encourage European youth to become involved in the Palestinian cause in genera and the issues of Al-Quds and the Al-Aqsa Mosque in particular;
- The participants called on EU officials to place Al-Quds at the heart of its humanitarian efforts and view it in terms of justice and freedom
