The Mufti of Jerusalem Sheikh Mohammed Hussein has released a fatwa saying, "Arabs and Muslims should visit the Al-Masjid Al-Aqsa in support of the Palestinian opposition against the Israeli occupancy."
Speaking to AA on Tuesday, Sheikh Hussein said that the fatwa given by the chairman of the International Union of Muslim Scholars, Sheikh Yusuf Al-Qaradawi which forbidden Arabs' visit to the Al-Aqsa Mosque during the Israeli occupancy, was not a well-directed fatwa.
Sheikh Hussein said, "We are Palestinians and we give our fetwa basing on religious evidences. By doing this, we refuse the Israeli occupancy. If you go to Al-Aqsa Mosque, you see people coming from Jordan, Egypt, Malaysia and Turkey. Al-Qaradawi only forbids Arabs from visiting the mosque and that is why his fatwa is discriminative. If a fatwa is given, then it should involve everybody."
Sheikh Hussein also added that he is aware of Turkey's point of view about Palestine and said, "We see Turkish people as brothers, sisters. They always support Palestinians in any way. The support that Turks give to Palestine is enormous."
