scuffles and verbal altercations between the supporters of the Islamic Liberation Party's pro-revolution against the regime of Bashar in Syria, Sheikh Salah Abu Arafa, imam and preacher of Al-Aqsa Mosque, and supporters.
This came after Abu Arafa rejected Dr. Yusuf al-Qaradawi's fatwa jihad against Shiites and Alawites in Syria, saying that this fatwa hit Muslim unity and assists the Israelis in their aggression.
At the same time, this did not prevent bickering within the courtyards of Al-Aqsa, prompting the Israeli occupation forces to attack a peaceful march organized by the national forces in the Damascus Gate, one of the most prominent and most famous gates of Jerusalem's Old City.
And that group, Hizb ut-Tahrir, thinks this:
...This blessed land has been tended with the pure blood of the martyrs of the Islamic armies over many periods of the Islamic Khilafah. Not a single inch of Palestinian land is there that has not witnessed the blood of its martyrs or the dust flying from the footsteps of the Mujahid’s horses.
Indeed, the Palestine has remained custody over the necks of Muslims; it was first opened by Muslims during the era of syeddina Omar’s Khilafah. It was this period of Omar (r.a) that established and consolidated the authority and rule of Islam over Palestine and ruled that especially Jews will not reside in this blessed land….this remained so throughout history. Whenever the enemy cast his evil eye on Palestine, there would rise a Salahuddin who cleansed it of the crusaders, or Qutz or Beybrus who rid this blessed land from the Tatars… And then there was Khaleefah Abdul Hameed towards the very end of the Khilafah period who protected this land from being occupied by Hertzel and his band. A person like him would be here if there was Khilafah in existence, and would have rid this land from the usurpation of the Jew occupiers and brought the entire territory to the fold of the Islamic State.
