The Israeli Magistrates Court in Jerusalem has issued a decision regarding the future of Al-Aqsa Mosque, considering it to be a holy place for Jews and that they have the right to pray in it.

The Minister of Endowments and Religious Affairs, Yusuf Adeis, stressed that such a decision only pushes vigorously towards a religious war that would have serious impacts on the whole region.

Adeis stated in a press release, according to Al Ray, that this dangerous development in Israeli policy toward Islamic holy sites, especially Al-Aqsa, is only one part of the Israeli approach that clearly aims to consolidate the “legality” of such violations in accordance with the Israeli law.

The Israeli law hits the wall of all the international resolutions which set Al-Aqsa as a place strictly for Muslims, while  others are not entitled to grab its sovereignty under any pretext whatsoever, he explained.

Adeis said that the decisions issued by Israeli courts are an extension of the colonial approach of trying to “give a legal character” on the violations and crimes that affected the Palestinian people and their components of religious, cultural and national identity.

At the end of his release, Adeis called on all relevant institutions to the need to work to face this resolution by all available means legally and politically.
