Headline: "Al-Habbash: Jerusalem is the embodiment of the conflict between truth and falsehood and it needs its people, the Muslims from the entire world"
"Supreme Shari'ah Judge of Palestine and [PA] President [Mahmoud Abbas'] Advisor on Religious and Islamic Affairs Mahmoud Al-Habbash said that Jerusalem is the embodiment of the struggle between truth and falsehood, and it is one of the religious symbols that are connected to the Islamic faith – like the sanctuary in Mecca and the sanctuary in Medina – and it needs its people, the Muslims from the entire world in order to protect its identity, history, and sanctity.
During a Friday sermon at the great Moscow Cathedral Mosque in Russia, Al-Habbash called to visit [Jerusalem] and pray at its mosque…
The supreme Shari'ah judge said that Jerusalem is the city of peace, whose residents must live in security and peace like the rest of the peoples of the world by ending this oppressive occupation that weighs on our land and our Jerusalem and prevents us from reaching our [Al-Aqsa] Mosque, which will never be anything but an Islamic mosque."
Mahmoud Al-Habbash also holds the position of Chairman of the Supreme Council for Shari'ah Justice.
