PA Minister of Religious Affairs claims Israel plans “religious war,” only Muslims have the right to Western Wall

Headline: "The occupation has placed the Al-Aqsa Mosque under siege with metal detectors, and the residents of Jerusalem refuse to pass through them"

"[PA] Minister of Religious Affairs Sheikh Yusuf Ida'is emphasized that the occupation's steps at the Al-Aqsa Mosque (refers to temporary closure and placement of metal detectors after a terror attack there on July 14, 2017; see note below –Ed.) are clear proof that the extremist right-wing government plans to ignite a religious war in the region that will have disastrous consequences for the entire region…
Ida'is said that the Israeli government’s actions express a clear rejection of the entire international community and of the decisions it has made about Jerusalem, the Al-Aqsa Mosque, and the Al-Buraq Wall (i.e., the Western Wall of the Temple Mount), which have confirmed the Muslims' absolute right to them."

Muhammad Ahmad Muhammad Jabarin, Muhammad Hamed Abd Al-Latif Jabarin, and Muhammad Ahmad Mufaddal Jabarin - Israeli Arab terrorists aged 29, 19, and 19, who shot from the Temple Mount at Israeli policemen, murdering 2 Israeli Druze border policemen - Haiel Stawi and Kamil Shnaan, on July 14, 2017. Two of the terrorists were shot and killed by other policemen during the attack. The third terrorist was shot and killed while trying to flee.

The Al-Buraq Wall - Islam's Prophet Muhammad is said to have rode during his Night Journey from Mecca to "al aqsa mosque", i.e., "the farthest mosque" (Quran, Sura 17), and there tied his miraculous flying steed named Al-Buraq to a "stone" or a "rock." (Jami` at-Tirmidhi, Book 47, Hadith 3424). In the 1920's, Arab Mufti Haj Amin Al-Husseini decided to identify the Western Wall of the Temple in Jerusalem as that "rock" or "stone," and since then Muslims refer to the Western Wall as the "Al-Buraq Wall."
