No Room For Non-Muslims on Temple Mount - The Palestinian Authority Mufti of Jerusalem
Jerusalem Post - “There is no place for non-Muslims in any way in this mosque, whether through schools, churches or other places of worship.”
The Palestinian Authority Mufti of Jerusalem, Sheikh Mohammed Hussein, on Tuesday warned of attempts by Jewish groups to establish a presence on the Temple Mount. Hussein told the Palestinian news agency Khabar that the entire holy site is Islamic and belongs only to Muslims.
“We affirm, time and again, that the blessed al-Aqsa Mosque, with its entire area of 144 dunams [144,000 sq.m.], is Islamic and only for Muslims,” he said. “There is no place for non-Muslims in any way in this mosque, whether through schools, churches or other places of worship.”
Jordan, meanwhile, has again condemned visits by Jews to the Temple Mount as a “reckless provocation and a violation of international law and the legal and historical status quo.”....READ MORE
