PA Minister of Religious Affairs: Israel’s goal is destruction of the Al-Aqsa Mosque, building the alleged Temple, and inciting religious war in the Middle East
Official Palestinian Authority TV - July 26, 2015

 

PA Minister of Religious Affairs Sheikh Yusuf Ida'is:
"The Israeli occupation’s goal is to destroy the Al-Aqsa Mosque using rabbis and groups of extremist Jews, and to establish the alleged Temple in its place... Israel challenges and provokes the feelings of Arabs and Muslims. When Israel attacks the places holy to Islam and Christianity - and even trees, stones, or the dead are not safe from these attacks - it essentially wants to incite a religious war in the entire Middle East region. It strives for religious war, and it is the one adding fuel to the flames... I say to the patient and resolute Palestinian people, and to the people of Jerusalem who are protecting the holy places: Feel good about the honor [of carrying] Ribat (i.e., religious conflict/war to protect land claimed to be Islamic)."
