Sheikh Yusuf Adeis, head of the Supreme Court and chairman of the Supreme Judicial Council for the Sharia Judiciary in Palestine, said that the Al-Aqsa Mosque is suffering from Jewish daily attacks.
"The Jews are desecrating Al-Aqsa through the repeated raids into its courtyards and the continued excavations under it, in addition to preventing the Muslim worshipers from performing their religious rites there," Adeis said in a press statement on Thursday, on the 44th anniversary of the burning of Al-Aqsa mosque.
He added that "all indicators and data confirm that the collapse of Al-Aqsa Mosque is close. This is confirmed by the successive collapses in Al-Aqsa mosque and its surroundings, the latest of which was the collapse that took place on Wednesday night in Housh Asila, which is 20 meters away from the Selsila gate, due to the continued excavations."
Sheikh Yusuf Adeis pointed out that the occupation authorities, in coordination with the Municipality Jerusalem, the Israel Antiquities Authority and leaders of extremist Jewish groups, are trying to divide the Al-Aqsa Mosque in preparation for demolishing it and building the alleged temple on its ruins.
He also warned that the Israeli authorities are taking advantage of the current conditions in the Arab region to implement its plans that aim to Judaize Jerusalem and its holy sites and to displace its indigenous population.
As much as I sympathize with his concern, for my own reasons, and others, too, I think only an earthquake will radically alter the situation in our favor in the near future.
But you never know when an earthquake strikes.
