Grand Mufti of Jerusalem warns of devastating religious war
Grand Mufti of Jerusalem warns of devastating religious war
Gaza: Grand Mufti of Jerusalem Sheikh Mohamed Hussein strongly denounced the arson attack waged by Israeli settlers on the main mosque in Luban Al-Sharqiya village, south of Nablus, at dawn Tuesday, warning that such crimes would lead to a devastating religious war.

Sheikh Hussein said during a tour of the attack scene that the attacks on mosques fall within a systematic policy aimed at fueling a religious conflict and insulting humanitarian and religious values of other peoples. He referred to the arson attack on Yasuf mosque, the annexation of Ibrahimi and Bilal mosques and the repeated settlers’ attacks on the Aqsa Mosque.

The grand Mufti highlighted. that the divine religions prohibit inflicting harm on places of worship and call for sparing them from any conflict.

He also deplored Israeli jailers for tearing a holy Qur’an book in Ashkelon prison, holding Israel fully responsible for the consequences of such an act.

For his part, Dr. Salah A-Bardawil, the spokesman for Hamas’s parliamentary bloc, said that the burning of a mosque in Nablus is a fruit of the frivolous negotiations between the Palestinian Authority (PA) and the Israeli occupation.

Dr. Bardawil stressed in a press release on Tuesday that the sole beneficiary of the peace talks is Israel which seeks to implement its schemes and commit its crimes under the guise of negotiations.

He noted that the Arab follow-up committee is not empowered to issue decisions that cover up Israel’s violations, but its job is to follow up the Arab peace initiative, adding that Fatah faction took advantage of the Arab decision to get engaged in negotiations with Israel, the thing which could undermine the Palestinian rights and constants.
