The Aqsa foundation for endowment and heritage warned that a Zionist group called “Haliba organization for Jewish freedom on [the alleged] temple mount” issued and distributed last Saturday a four-page magazine inciting Jewish settlers to desecrate the Aqsa Mosque.
The magazine was issued particularly to urge the Jewish settlers in occupied Palestine to defile the Aqsa Mosque, and contained calls and religious views by rabbis and intelligence figures in this regard.
Large numbers of this magazine were distributed in all synagogues throughout occupied Palestine, especially in Jerusalem. The magazine was the first issue and others would be issued later, according to the Jewish organization.
In a press release, the Aqsa foundation said this magazine was clear evidence of the dangers threatening the Aqsa Mosque and called on the Palestinians to intensify their presence at the Mosque in order to protect it against any such malicious plans.
In another context, grand Mufti of Jerusalem and Palestine Sheikh Mohamed Hussein warned of the new Israeli decision to reduce the sound of adhan (prayer calls) at all mosques of occupied Jerusalem.
Sheikh Hussein stated on Sunday that this new measure is part of the warfare that the Israeli occupation has been waging since a while under different pretexts against the Palestinian mosques throughout Palestine, especially in Jerusalem.
He stressed that the mosques are Islamic sites administered by Islamic bodies and thus Israel and its institutions have no right to interfere in them.
The grand Mufti said that Israel flouts and disrespect all divine and earthly laws and pursues a systematic plan aimed at obliterating and Judaizing the Arab and Islamic identity of Palestine.
He appealed to the international community to curb Israel’s violations against the Islamic holy sites in Palestine, especially the Aqsa Mosque and prevent it from interfering in the religious affairs of the Palestinian Muslims.
