Since the beginning of the year, there has been an alarming rise in the number of occasions Israeli forces, settlers and politicians have stormed the al-Aqsa Sanctuary. Following the public call by main stream Israeli Politician like Moshe Feiglin and Bennett, for the destruction of al-Aqsa Sancuary, a parade by over a hundred female Israeli entered the sanctuary. Yesterday, scores of settlers accompanied by over a hundred soldiers entered the Al-Aqsa Sanctuary. The Israeli state appears to be aiding and abetting extreme elements from Israeli society in violating the Palestinian rights over the land.
Sheikh Raed Salah, the leader of the Islamic movement from the pre-1948 Palestine, warned that Israel is trying to isolate al-Aqsa Sanctuary from the Palestinians. Other steps have included demolishing the facades of a number of historical buildings in the Buraq Square adjoining the Aqsa Sanctuary .
Friends of Al-Aqsa is deeply concerned about these reports and this latest incident is a reminder of the clear and present danger the Al-Aqsa sanctuary faces. We must always be mindful of this danger and do whatever we can to preserve the Al-Aqsa sanctuary.
