      "[PA] Minister of Religious Affairs Yusuf Ida'is yesterday [Jan. 24, 2019] inaugurated the Al-Salam Mosque in the village of Dir Balut in the Salfit district. Ida'is emphasized the importance of the mosque’s construction and its natural role in conveying the message of peace and its importance in the people's daily lives. Ida'is said: 'The mosque's message is the message of Islam, monotheism, guidance on the straight path, and adherence to Allah's covenant. Also, the preachers' pulpits are a means of our national unity and our resolve against the occupation's policy and the cancer of its settlement, and not of separation and division."
