PA Sheikh calls for people to go to Al-Aqsa Mosque and “perform Ribat”
Official PA daily, Al-Hayat Al-Jadida - Mar. 27, 2013

 
During Passover 2013, member of Israeli Parliament Moshe Feiglin sought to visit the Temple Mount. The PA daily portrayed his intention to visit the site as a “call to invade the Al-Aqsa Mosque”:
     “National personalities and unofficial activists denounced Israeli Parliament member Moshe Feiglin’s call to invade the Al-Aqsa Mosque today to mark the Hebrew Passover holiday. Member of the PLO Executive Committee and Head of PLO department of Jerusalem Affairs, Ahmed Qurei ‘Abu Alaa’ warned of the consequences of these recurring attacks and of the racist calls to invade the Al-Aqsa Mosque. He said that the almost daily invasions of the blessed Al-Aqsa Mosque…and the call to build the alleged Temple testify to a dangerous Judaizing plot which puts Jerusalem in real danger, therefore it is necessary to work seriously and decisively to end these gross violations and the uncaring policy adopted by Netanyahu’s most extreme and racist government.
Yusuf Ida'is, President of the Supreme Islamic Court and Chairman of the Supreme Council of Islamic Law, called on our people wherever they may be found – especially the residents of Jerusalem and the land occupied in 1948 (i.e. Israel) – to head towards the blessed Al-Aqsa Mosque and perform constant Ribat (religious conflict/war defending Islamic land) to protect it. This was in response to Feiglin’s call. He put full responsibility for the crimes against the holy city and its holy sites on the Israeli occupation government. Sheikh Ida’is emphasized that the Israeli occupation government, including all its different branches, continues its attempts to Judaize the city of Jerusalem and its holy sites. He made it clear that the Al-Aqsa Mosque is in grave danger because of the unceasing excavations underneath it and the recurring invasion of herds of settlers.”
