Official Palestinian Authority TV - Feb. 21, 2014

 


PA Minister of Religious Affairs Mahmoud Al-Habbash:‎ ‎“This is our land and we will not leave our land. ‎Our Al-Aqsa Mosque – no one has the right – no one has the right to a single millimeter of it. The ‎entire Al-Aqsa Mosque is a pure Islamic-Palestinian right. It is not permissible or acceptable that even a ‎single millimeter of it will be ruled, dominated or seized by these usurping terrorist settlers... The right ‎to pray at the blessed Al-Aqsa Mosque belongs exclusively to Muslims, exclusively to Muslims... The ‎Al-Aqsa Mosque with its courtyards, its colonnades, its stone benches, its domes, its trees, its walls, ‎includes the Al-Buraq Wall (i.e., the Western Wall of the Temple Mount), especially the Al-Buraq ‎Wall... Our land is our land. Our Jerusalem is our Jerusalem. Our Al-Aqsa is our Al-Aqsa. The names will ‎not change. The identity will not change. The place will not change. The Al-Aqsa Mosque will remain ‎the Al-Aqsa Mosque until the Hour [of Resurrection]. We ask Allah the Almighty to watch over it, ‎protect it and liberate it.”‎
