“[PA] Minister of Religious Affairs Yusuf Ida’is consecrated the Al-Sahabah Mosque yesterday [June 5, 2016] in the village of Farkha in the Salfit district…
He said: ‘The mosque’s message is really the message of Islam, monotheism, guidance on the straight path, and a request for shelter in Allah’s religion. The preachers’ pulpits are a means of uniting, to achieve our national unity, and to resist the policy of the occupation and the cancer of its settlement.’”
