Al Aqsa imam and preacher  Sheikh Ikrima Sabri was interviewed by Turkey's Anadolu Agency during a visit he is making to Turkey.

He praised the "wise Turkish policy towards the occupied city of Jerusalem," calling on "everyone" to follow it.

Sabri said, "Turkey's relationship with Palestine is not new, but it is centuries old, and it has been strengthened even more through its wise policy of extending bridges of brotherhood with the Arab world," stressing that "this is a policy that we always demand." 

The implication is that the centuries of Ottoman rule of Jerusalem and Palestine was not an occupation of Palestinian land, barring Palestinians from having their own independent nation. It was rather a wonderful time period when non-Arab Muslims ruled Arabs.

Only when Jews control the land is it an "occupation" and a prevention of Palestinian national aspirations. 

Speaking of Jews, Sabri stressed that there is no relationship whatsoever between Judaism and the Temple Mount.

"It is our duty to clarify our strategic position, which is that Al-Aqsa is for Muslims alone, and the Jews have nothing to do with it. It is linked to a decision from God Almighty, not from a security council or a body of nations."

Remember, one of the names of Jerusalem in Arabic is Bayt al-Muqaddas, a direct Arabic translation of the Hebrew Beit HaMikdash, or Holy Temple.

The imam added that when Jews visit their holiest site, "the intruders come with an (Israeli) escort, while the foreign visitor comes without it, and this confirms that the intruder is an aggressor who wants to prove his existence."

The idea that armed guards are needed to protect Jews from the antisemitic incitement  from people like Sheikh Sabri whipping up Muslims to attack them is not considered.

We have lots of ideas, but we need more resources to be even more effective. Please donate today to help get the message out and to help defend Israel.
