Joining the global campaign of incitement against Israel through the pretext of ‘danger’ to the Al Aqsa Mosque, Hamas issued a statement on February 12th 2012 saying that
“..any tampering with the Al-Aqsa Mosque would be tantamount to declaring war on all Arabs and Muslims.”
“Hamas hailed the Palestinians in 1948 occupied Palestine and in Al-Quds (Jerusalem) who stood up to the Israeli storming attempt, urging the Palestinian people to stand united to protect the Al-Aqsa Mosque.”
“Hamas asked the Arab and Muslim masses to assume their responsibilities and to back the steadfastness of the Al-Quds citizens (the Jerusalemites).”
“Meanwhile, the league of Palestine scholars appealed to the Islamic Umma to hurry to the rescue of the holy site, the third holiest shrine in Islam.”
“Dr. Salem Salama, the head of the league, told a press conference on Sunday that the Muslims worldwide should not remain arms folded in face of Israeli desecration of the holy site.”
“He urged Al-Quds citizens and Palestinians in 1948 occupied Palestine not to let the Al-Aqsa Mosque empty at any time by day or night and to remain stationed there 24 hours a day.”
