Jordan’s Islamic Endowments Minister Abdul-Salam Abadi has accused Israel of planning to partition the courtyards of Al-Aqsa Mosque, the country’s Al-Ghad newspaper reported on Wednesday. The move, claimed Abadi, is in preparation for the building of the so-called “Third Temple” on the site of the mosque in occupied Jerusalem.
Abadi told a delegation of Australian Muslim clerics about Jordan’s efforts to protect and preserve the real, Islamic identity of the Holy City. He said that he has received “clear instructions from the Hashemite leadership to safeguard the Islamic and Arabic identity of Jerusalem.”
The minister stressed the importance of supporting Palestinians in Jerusalem in the face of repeated Israeli attacks on Al-Aqsa Mosque and Islamic holy sites in the occupied city.
Mr. Adnan Husseini, Minister for Jerusalem Affairs in the Palestinian government, accused the Israeli occupation authorities of procedures of Judaization and unloading of the holy city of war crimes in particular, and it is working to impose a new reality fake in this city that was sought by the Palestinian people as the capital of an independent state next.
Someone else was inciting, too:
The former Chief Justice of Palestine Sheikh Tayseer Tamimi warned of the seriousness of the fall of the Al Aqsa Mosque because of excavations under the walls of Zionism and its surroundings at a meeting with the Secretary General of the Arab League, Nabil Elaraby last Thursday at the headquarters of the university in Cairo, hard reality in the occupied city of Jerusalem and its holy sites and ways to mobilize support.
By the way, there's this:
The reconstruction work to restore the Dome of the Chain adjacent to the Dome of the Rock after three years of continuous work by the engineers and technicians in the Al-Aqsa Mosque has been completed.
Chairman of the Board of Awqaf, Sheikh Abdel Azim Salhab said "Dome of the Chain is the oldest vessel [?] in the Al Aqsa Mosque, the Umayyad prerogative [?] had not been altered..."
Here are scenes from yesterday - all peaceful and quiet.
And here is another 'Kollel student'
