The head of the Islamic Movement in Israel (“1948 occupied Palestine”) has briefed Malaysia’s Prime Minister about the threats to the Holy City of Jerusalem and Al-Aqsa Mosque. Sheikh Raed Salah met Mohammed Najib Abdul-Razaq on Friday along with a delegation of senior Palestinian officials in Kuala Lumpur.

The Prime Minister asked Sheikh Salah about his experience on board the Marvi Marmara, which was part of the Freedom Flotilla to Gaza in 2010 when it was attacked by Israeli commandos in international waters. Nine Turkish citizens were killed during the murderous assault.

After the meeting, Mr. Abdul-Razaq drove Sheikh Salah personally to the Putra Mosque, where the visitor led the communal prayer and supplicated to the Almighty for Muslim unity and the liberation of Al-Aqsa. Afterwards, Sheikh Salah and the delegation attended an official lunch hosted by the Malaysian Minister of Religious Affairs, Jamil Khair Haj Bahroum. Sheikh Salah told the audience about the suffering of the Palestinians in Jerusalem and the threats facing Al-Aqsa Mosque.
