PA Minister of Religious Affairs: Al-Aqsa Mosque is in “grave and immediate danger” from Israeli plans to divide it or build the “alleged Temple”

Headline: “Ida’is: 109 Israeli violations…”
“[PA] Minister of Religious Affairs Sheikh Yusuf Ida'is stated… that the Al-Aqsa Mosque is in grave and immediate danger, and that this danger increases with every passing day. He noted that this requires the consolidation of a method of action on the Islamic, Arab, and international levels in order to fight against the Israeli plans and save the mosque from the threats of demolition, division, or the building of the alleged Temple.”

"Division according to areas and times" refers to a proposed law (May 2013) being reviewed in Israeli Parliament that would allow for both Jews and Muslims to pray on the Temple Mount. The law seeks to designate separate prayer times and areas of the site for Muslims and Jews.
