Sheikh Kamal Al-Khatib, deputy head of the Islamic Movement in the 1948 occupied lands [aka Israel], said the Israeli occupation regime would never succeed in his attempts to divide the Aqsa Mosque.
In a statement to the Aqsa foundation for endowment and heritage, Sheikh Khatib warned the Israeli regime that the Muslims would respond strongly if it tried to take such step..."you cannot take us away from the Aqsa Mosque,’” Sheikh Khatib highlighted.
The Israeli Knesset has declared its intention to table a new draft law soon proposed by its right-wing member Arieh Eldad calling for dividing the Aqsa Mosque between Muslims and Jews, and specifying days for their visits as is the case in the Ibrahimi Mosque of Al-Khalil city.
Ah. Not a physical divide. Simply permitting Jews some rights we deserve at appropriate times and certain places. But the esplanade remains whole.
