PA Claims ‘Western Wall is Muslim’

611716PA claims Temple Mount and Kotel as ‘Muslim holy sites,’ as PA mufti calls for ‘physical’ response to possible ban of Muslim rioting groups.

The Palestinian Authority’s (PA) Grand Mufti Sheikh Mohammed Hussein on Tuesday condemned Internal Security Minister Gilad Erdan’s (Likud) call the day before to ban the Islamist organizations that routinely riot on the Temple Mount, the holiest site in Judaism.

Hussein claimed that Israel prevents Muslims from fully controlling Al-Aqsa Mosque, where Islam claims its founder Mohammed “ascended to the heavens” in a night vision. He also accused Israel of allowing “Jewish extremists to breach in and desecrate it (the site – ed.).”

The PA Mufti accused Israel of being “haughty,” and for indirectly seeking equal rights for Jews at the holy site by dividing time between Muslims and Jews at the Mount – as is currently done at the Cave of Machpelah in Hevron.

He called for Muslims to strengthen their hold on the Al-Aqsa Mosque through protests and showing a physical presence, in a call to action that eerily echoes that of PA Chairman Mahmoud Abbas last November, when he urged Palestinian Arabs to wage holy war over the Mount as his aides later explained his comments to mean.
