A senior member of the Palestinian Liberation Organization (PLO) has warned against the provocative actions of Israeli settlers in the Al-Aqsa Mosque.
In reaction to reports that a group of Israeli settlers recently drank wine on the grounds of the holy mosque, Ahmed Qurei warned that such provocative acts threaten the security of al-Quds (Jerusalem).
Also some background from a few days ago.
As I wrote previously:
- no wine; grape juice
- not in a mosque but in the courtyard's open space off to the side
- Muslims eat and drink there, play soccer, children's activities with balloons take place, not to mention kids with toy rifles, paper-mache rockets, Hamas flags, etc.
