Dividing Palestine forbidden; liberation mandatory for all Muslims

Sheikh Yuosuf Abu Sneina, Official Preacher of the Al-Aqsa Mosque:
 “The Islamic Land of Palestine is one and cannot be divided. There is no difference between Haifa and Nablus, between Lod and Ramallah, between Jerusalem and Nazareth. Dividing Palestine into cantons and giving recognition to the occupation is prohibited by Shari'ah (Islamic religious law), since Palestine is Waqf [Islamic Trust] for all Muslims in the East and in the West. No one has the right to give it up or to forsake it. The liberation of Palestine is a mandatory obligation for all Muslims and not only for our Palestinian nation.”
[Note: Haifa, Lod, Jerusalem, Nazareth are all Israeli cities.]
