Turkish President Recep Tayip Erdogan continues to indulge in political acrobatics by playing both sides of the divide in Palestine. He mouths slogans in support of the Palestinians but continues to maintain close ties with zionist Israel.
The protection of Masjid al Aqsa is not only the responsibility of the Palestinians but of all Muslims especially the Muslim governments. Zionist settlers, protected by Israeli police have been encroaching on the noble sanctuary. Muslim governments must step up to their responsibility.
The Zionists are terrified of Palestinian youth flying kites over Gaza. They have used missiles fired from drones as well as artillery fire against the youth flying kites.
Ordinary Muslims have vigorously protested Trump’s Jerusalem move but some Muslim regimes, especially those in the Muslim East have sided with the enemies of Allah and His Prophet.
Muslims have historically respected the rights of other religions—Christianity and Judaism—and it is only Muslims that are the rightful custodians of Jerusalem/al-Quds and the Holy Land.
The Zionists not only want to occupy the whole of Palestine but their special target is al Masjid al Aqsa, the holy sanctuary. They have intensified their attacks in recent weeks as Muslim attention is diverted elsewhere.1
The illegal Zionist squatters are at it again: storming the Masjid al-Aqsa, vandalising it and attacking Muslim worshippers. The armed Zionist marauders are backed by the occupation regime's police and other forces. Palestinians are left alone to defend the first qibla of Muslims and the third holiest site in Islam. What will it take to arouse the Muslim world to realize their responsibility toward Masjid al-Aqsa...
Zionist provocations at Masjid al-Aqsa and the Haram al-Sharif are likely to lead to another intifadah in Palestine. The zionist occupying regime is discussing a draft law that would provide access for zionist Jews to set foot on the Haram al-Sharif and pray there. Muslims consider this to be an extreme provocation. Muslim reaction is likely to be strong and widespread. Perhaps this is what the zionists want.
History repeats itself. The less people know their history, the more inclined they are to repeat it. We find this particularly applicable to the affairs of the Muslim Ummah. For example, we know the Dome of the Rock in Jerusalem to be one of the most beautiful buildings in the Muslim world, testament to the glory and magnificence of Islam and a matter of pride for Muslims.
Allah (swt), however, works in His own mysterious ways. Regardless of what the condition of Muslims may be at any given time, there is always something positive in it for them...
The Israeli war against the Palestinian people reached new heights on May 18, when Israel used F-16 fighter aircraft supplied by the US to attack targets in Nablus and Ramallah. A total of 10 people were killed in the two attacks.
Palestinians in Zionist-occupied Jerusalem last month marked the 30th anniversary of the arson attack on the Masjid Al-Aqsa on August 21, 1969. Palestinian Islamic leaders used the occasion to highlight continuing threats to the mosque, as well as other Islamic sites under Israeli rule
