0202 – Points of View from Jerusalem


“Islamic Waqf Department in Jerusalem [1]: [Israeli] settlers perform official Talmudic marriage rituals in the courtyards of the blessed Al-Aqsa Mosque this morning [January 3, 2017] under the protection of Occupation forces.”

– Quds News Network

[Selected comments:]

– "This is not something new; they [Israelis] have been doing this for a long time.”
– “What does ‘Talmudic’ mean??"
– “There is no might or power [for us] except from God [2].”
– “I urge everyone to watch the show entitled, ‘Holy Blood- Al-Aqsa Mosque’ by Dr. Naser Al-Laham’s [3] to see how we ended it up in the situations in such a short time.”
0202 Editor’s Notes:
[1] The Islamic Waqf is the religious endowment which essentially functions as the religious and civil administration of Al-Aqsa Mosque. Following the 1967 War in which Israel took control of the Old City of Jerusalem, the Israeli government decided to maintain Jordanian custodianship of the Waqf. Today Al-Aqsa Mosque is governed and funded jointly by the Jordanian Waqf and the Waqf of the Palestinian Authority.
[2] This is a phrase taught by the Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) which Muslims say in times of hardship and difficulty.
[3] Dr. Naser Al-Laham is a Palestinian journalist and editor-in-chief of the Maan News Agency,
