Israeli administration occupying the Palestine indefinitely closed off Masjid al-Aqsa for visit by Muslims and visitors after an extreme right-winger rabbi was critically wounded in an armed assault in West Jerusalem.
The occupying Israeli administration murdered a Palestinian in East Jerusalem in the operations following the attack and made the city uninhabitable because of the lack of security caused by terror.
Neither Masjid al-Aqsa, a place of worship, nor the Muslims praying in Al Aqsa can be held responsible for the attack on the rabbi. The fact that the occupying administration wants to punish all Muslims as a response to the attack reminds us of the time when Hitler oppressed and murdered Jews, just because they were Jews. By doing so, the occupying administration admits once again that it looks up to Nazi Germany, adopts its practices, and sees it as a leader when it comes to cruelty.
The right to open or close places of worship, use them, or pray in them belongs to the members of the religion, according to their religious rituals and rules. Occupant Israel is abusing the freedom of worship by shutting down Masjid al-Aqsa for the first time since 1967.
We invite the occupying Israeli administration to abandon this provocative, despotic and unlawful practice. We remind the public opinion that occupying administration will be the only one responsible for all the tension and violence that will happen from now on in Palestinian.
The occupying Israeli administration must open Masjid al-Aqsa which is considered sacred by Muslims, to visitors without imposing any conditions, and leave the occupied Palestinian territory with all of their armed gangs.
