Israeli Communications Minister Ayoub Kara praised Saudi regime’s Grand Mufti Abdul Aziz al-Sheikh’s comments attacking the Gaza based political and militant group, offering the zionist mufti an invitation to visit Israel.
“We congratulate Abdul Aziz al-Sheikh, the Grand Mufti of Saudi Arabia, as well as the head of Ulema for his fatwa forbidding the fight against the Jews and forbidding to kill them,” Kara tweeted.
The Saudi cleric made the comments on a television programme after he was asked about the anger witnessed in July as Israel closed down al-Aqsa Mosque following a shootout. He said fighting Israel was inappropriate and described Hamas as a ‘terror organisation’.
The measures continued for 12 days, until Israel dismantled the security apparatus around the mosque following Palestinian protests and international pressure.
