     “The Executive Director of the Department of Mosques in the Ministry of Religious Affairs said, in a speech delivered on behalf of the Minister of Religious Affairs [Mahmoud Al-Habbash] during a ceremony held at the Ibrahimi Mosque: ‘I direct a message to the occupier (i.e., Israel): We pray that you will be expelled, you and those who are with you. This mosque will remain Arab, Islamic, and belonging to Muslims alone. It will not be left to you as an inheritance, because the Ministry of Religious Affairs will continue to be the devoted guardian and defender of the mosque as Islamic.”
