    South Africans stand in solidarity with Al-Aqsa

    July 21, 2017

    South African Muslim leaders and civil rights groups have condemned Israel’s restrictionon Al-Aqsa Mosque, Islam’s third holiest site.Moulana Ebrahim Bham, secretary-general of the Council of Muslim theologians (Jamiatul Ulama) told Anadolu Agency today that the restrictions were a collective punishment on Palestinians and a blatant disregard for internationally recognised conventions.Shakir Baker, operations manager of the Al-Quds Foundation, told Anadolu Agency,

    We have appealed to Imams across the country to concentrate their sermons this Friday on what is happening in Al-Aqsa and rally solidarity for fellow Muslims in Palestine
    Baker, whose organisation works to safeguard the city of Al-Quds (Jerusalem) by preserving its Arab identity and sacred Islamic and Christian sites, said, “We have called on Muslims worldwide to fast every Thursday until Al-Aqsa is liberated.”

    Israeli authorities closed down the Al-Aqsa compound and cancelled weekly Friday prayers for the first time in nearly five decades, following a shootout last week which left three Palestinians and two Israeli policemen dead near holy site in East Jerusalem.On Wednesday, Israeli soldiers wounded nine Palestinians and arrested four others during protests against the closures.

    Sabri Slams Arab Leaders for Attributing Aqsa Victory to Themselves

    Aqsa preacher, Sheikh Ekrima Sabri, said on Friday that Palestinians are the ones who achieved al-Aqsa victory.

    Sheikh Sabri criticized some Arab leaders for attributing the victory to themselves, stressing that Palestinians, who decided to do their duties toward al-Aqsa Mosque and protested at its gates, are the real reason behind the victory.

    Sabri, head of the Supreme Islamic Council in Palestine since 1997, told al-Quds al-Arabi newspaper that the people of Jerusalem as well as the Palestinian crowds coming from the West Bank and the 1948 occupied Palestinian territories were able to force Israel to remove the metal detectors and cameras and reopen the Mosque.

    He stressed the importance of preserving the Islamic identity of al-Aqsa Mosque, rejecting Israel's sovereignty claims over the holy site.
