Jews have no right to Western Wall

Ikrima Sabri, Head of the [Palestinian] Organization of clerics and Disseminators of Islam and former Mufti of Jerusalem:
“Sheikh Sabri said that in the holy texts of the Quran and the Hadith, the Jews do not have any rights to the blessed Al-Aqsa Mosque. Therefore, this site is holy only to Muslims, and no one among the heavenly [monotheistic] religions shares it with them. Dr. Ikrima emphasized that no [Muslim] can bargain or give up [even] the smallest bit of the Al-Aqsa Mosque, and anyone who does is considered a traitor of Allah, his Messenger, his religion and his homeland. [The Mosque] is a trust that passes from generation to generation. Sheikh Sabri demanded of all the Arab and Muslim states to bear responsibility and unite in their position on the protection of the Al-Aqsa Mosque.”
[Note: The PA argues that the area of the Western Wall to be part of Al-Aqsa Mosque even though it is 80 meters away.]
