The Thousand and Umpteenth Night

Leave it to the Arab imagination:

Raef Najm: Israel will demolish the Al Aqsa mosque

The former Jordanian Minister of Awqaf – a well-known expert on Al-Aqsa Mosque and the city of Jerusalem affairs- Mr. Raef Najm said that he expect that Israel will manage at the very end to destroy Al-Aqsa mosque.

Najm who was interviewed by Aljazeera channel said that he expect also that it is more likely that the Israeli occupation will deport the Arab Jerusalemites from the holy city, if the Arab formal stance remained as it is appeasing Israel. Najm stressed that what is delaying the Israeli plan is the support that the Arab Jerusalemites received by their Arab brothers inside the Green Line area.

He added that the late Palestinian President Yasser Arafat ceded the Jewish Quarter (Al-Sharaf neighborhood) and part of the Armenian Quarter and the Mount of Olives and the territory of the so called "Talmudic gardens" in Camp David negotiations.

He's been at it before.
