  Al Aqsa Imam: Western Wall Belongs Only to Muslims
by Abra Forman

In another egregious step towards claiming the whole of Jerusalem for the Muslim world, two Arab leaders said on Friday that the Western Wall, or Kotel, belongs exclusively to the Muslims.

“It is an Islamic endowment that absolutely cannot belong to non-Muslims,” Mahmoud Habash, a Palestinian Authority Fatah official and President Mahmoud Abbas’s religious affairs advisor, declared during a sermon. “It is our property and endowment. It is impossible to concede one millimeter of it.”

Sheikh Ikarma Sabri, imam of the Al Aqsa Mosque on the Temple Mount, echoed his words on Friday, claiming the Western Wall as part of the Islamic Waqf that controls the Mount.

Repeating the ludicrous Arab idea that Islam’s claim to Jerusalem predated that of Judaism, Sabri said that Israel was attempting to “convince the world” to “create” its right to sovereignty in Jerusalem.

Both statements were likely a desperate attempt to walk back the damaging assertion of senior Fatah official Jabril Rajoub, who said last week on Israeli television that in terms of a peace deal splitting Jerusalem, the Western Wall “must be under Jewish sovereignty.”
