Official PA TV program In The Midst hosted Supreme Shari’ah Judge and Mahmoud Abbas’ Advisor on Religious and Islamic Affairs, Mahmoud Al-Habbash

Supreme Shari’ah Judge and Mahmoud Abbas’ Advisor on Religious and Islamic Affairs, Mahmoud Al-Habbash: "The use Americans or others make of the term 'Temple Mount' rather than the 'Al-Aqsa Mosque [plaza]' is unacceptable and should be condemned... The Al-Aqsa Mosque, which includes its plaza, all the gates, all the walls, all the facilities with and without a roof, and all the walls, including the Al-Buraq Wall (i.e., the Western Wall) which is an Islamic wall, an Islamic Waqf - a property of the Muslims - no one can deprive them of this ownership... The Al-Aqsa Mosque according to this description - its whole area is 144 dunam, 100 square meters, including its internal and external walls and the gates – is all an Islamic Waqf and an absolute Islamic right. No one except the Palestinians and Muslims is entitled to even a millimeter of it, not even a single grain of sand... The visit to the Al-Buraq Wall (i.e., the Western Wall) is a right every Muslim is entitled to. Not only the inside of the Al-Aqsa Mosque, the Al-Buraq Wall (i.e., the Western Wall) is [also] an Islamic right… This property belongs to me and all Muslims."
