“Israel will Pay the Price for Murderers Committed in Al-Masjid Al-Aqsa!”

Jerusalem Guardian Sheikh Raid Salah issued a press release on consecutive Al-Masjid Al-Aqsa raids of the occupation regime.

Press release of Raid Salah who was in Ankara as a guest of Heritage Association in order to attend a series of meetings focused on Jerusalem and Al-Masjid Al-Aqsa:


In the name of Allah, the beneficent, the merciful

Attacks of Israel in Al-Masjid Al-Aqsa – the first Kiblah of Muslims- are targeted at the entire Islam community without any exceptions.

Soldiers of the occupation regime raid the Al-Masjid Al-Aqsa in front of the entire world’s eyes, they break the doors, windows, set the carpets on fire and try to burn down the Kiblah Masjid.

Destroying everything that comes to their way, occupation soldiers violently attacked our brothers serving their duties as guardians in Al-Masjid Al-Aqsa, they dragged our sisters on the ground kicking them, they battered elders and children without caring about their ages.  Occupation regime soldiers pacify the security personnel of Al-Aqsa with the power they take from their governments and they believe they have right to attack by using stun grenades and gas bombs.

These attacks that lasted for years and increased in the recent days undervalue the sense of belonging of Islam world towards Al-Masjid Al-Aqsa and they are aimed at showing Muslims helpless beings who can be suppressed. It is neither time nor the place to remain silent as Israel soldiers make the minbar of Al-Masjid Al-Aqsa dirty with their boots. Islam world must protect Al-Masjid Al-Aqsa more than ever.

It is obvious that the raids of occupation regime are preparation for dividing Al-Masjid Al-Aqsa temporally. Once they achieve that, the second stage will be dividing Al-Aqsa spatially.  The final stage will be the permanent destruction of Al-Masjid Al-Aqsa and they will do anything to build the Solomon’s Temple as they claim.

Against all of these threats, we invite state officials, scholars and people of the Islam World to unite and act in a healthy, confident and bold manner to save Al-Masjid Al-Aqsa from the hands of the occupation regime.  Beyond any doubt, Al-Masjid Al-Aqsa will not come to an end unless there is deep grief in the hearts of all Muslims.

Beyond any doubt, the reactions we heart in certain Arab and Muslim countries are righteous and justified reactions, however they are not enough.  Because condemning the murders and pressure of the occupation regime without doing anything else will not stop the attacks of Israel. Occupation regime would stop only when actual steps are taken to make Israel feel that they will pay a high price for murders in Al-Masjid Al-Aqsa.  The reactions of the Islam World and the international society are important for us.

Muslims should not allow occupation regime Israel to trample down the eternal heritage in Al-Masjid Al-Aqsa. Muslims must prove to the occupation regime that they will protect Jerusalem and Al-Masjid Al-Aqsa until the eternity as they have always done.

Islam World should immediately stop watching the tragedy experienced in Jerusalem, Al-Masjid Al-Aqsa and Palestine without doing anything and gather around a uniting force that will save Al-Masjid Al-Aqsa from the occupation.  Then that day will be the freedom day for Jerusalem and Al-Masjid Al-Aqsa.
