Sheikh Raed Salah, head of Islamic Movement in Israel, yesterday called for saving Al-Aqsa Mosque from the continuous Israeli aggression, Safa news agency reported.
He called for Palestinians to visit it, pray and stay in it to defend it from the Israeli forces and settler violations.
This came in a speech he delivered to mark the birthday of Prophet Mohammad (peace be upon him).
“Every single stone in Al-Aqsa Mosque longs to Prophet Mohamad (peace be upon him),” Sheikh Salah said, urging Muslims to follow the footsteps of the prophet who led a prayer at the mosque.
He also said that “every inch in Al-Aqsa Mosque is suffering from the Israeli occupation,” pointing out that male and female worshippers are being beaten and forced out of the blessed mosque.
Sheikh Salah called for all Muslims and free people around the world to stand up for Al-Aqsa Mosque and stop Zionist forces and settlers from desecrating it.
