Israel is “transient,” “your foolishness will bring about your end” - Egyptian cleric

Official PA TV program Topic of the Day, hosting Sheikh Yasser Mustafa Younes from Al-Azhar – a prominent Muslim academic institution in Cairo


Al-Azhar Cleric Sheikh Yasser Mustafa Younes: “Read the history, as your state [of Israel] is transient,the entire occupation is transient, Allah willing. What did these states that occupied [other] states do? They gave and did a lot, but the right was restored to its owners, as this is an Islamic waqf, and the Al-Aqsa Mosque is an Islamic waqf.

A waqf is an inalienable religious endowment in Islamic law. Palestinians define all of Israel as waqf, and thereby Israel exists on Islamic holy land. Palestinian leaders have explained that under Islamic law Muslims are commanded to free the waqf from non-Muslims.
