Al-Aqsa and Jerusalem are in imminent danger

What happened and is happening in the courtyards of the Blessed Al-Aqsa Mosque by herds of settlers and extremist and racist Jewish extremists is not an easy matter, especially in light of the current Israeli government, which is one of the most extremist, racist, and hostile successive Israeli governments to everything that is Palestinian and Arab.

What happened yesterday in the blessed Al-Aqsa Mosque, from the actions of settlers and extremist Jews, with the support of the leaders of the extremist and racist government, and other incursions are merely “rehearsals” for what is to come, which portends work to divide it spatially after it was divided temporally, leading to attempts to demolish it and erect the alleged temple. The place of the honorable Dome of the Rock from which the Messenger, may God bless him and grant him peace, ascended to the heavens, the Most High, and the mother of all the prophets and messengers.

The occupying state, the settler gangs, and the extremist Jewish extremists would not have done everything they did and will do later, had it not been for the laxity of the Arab and Islamic countries in protecting Al-Aqsa and putting an end to what happened and is happening inside it, including Talmudic prayers, almost daily raids, and blowing the trumpet at its doors as a prelude to blowing inside it. As well as the arrests carried out by the occupation forces of young men and men and women retreating there, assaulting them, deporting them from it and the Old City of Jerusalem, and many other practices, violations and assaults, including severe beatings and other assaults and attacks on personal and collective dignity.

It is true that the people of Jerusalem and the Palestinians of the interior defend Al-Aqsa daily from settler attacks and incursions, but that is not enough in the face of the arrests, deportations, and house arrests carried out by the occupation authorities for tens and hundreds of young men, whether in occupied Jerusalem or inside Palestine.

Protecting Al-Aqsa is the responsibility of all Arabs and Muslims because it represents a religious status that concerns everyone, as it is the first of the two qiblahs, the second of the two mosques, the third of the Two Holy Mosques, and the final resting place of the Messenger Muhammad, may God bless him and grant him peace.

The question that arises is that as long as the Holy Mosque is important to all Muslims and Arabs in the world due to its importance and religious status, why is its sanctity not defended, which is violated daily by herds of Jewish settlers and extremists, represented by the Temple Mount Associations and others, whose most prominent goals are to build the alleged temple inside the Mosque? Al-Sharif, and believes that the Islamic and Arab silence regarding the preparations they are making for this day encourages them to persist in their Judaization steps and their attempts to demolish Al-Aqsa Mosque and the Dome of the Rock and to Judaize the second holiest shrine of Muslims after the Kaaba and the Prophet’s Mosque.

The defense of the blessed Al-Aqsa Mosque by Arabs and Muslims is an obligation, and continuing to be negligent in defending it and merely issuing statements of denunciation and denunciation will only increase the vulgarity, tyranny, and Judaization of Al-Aqsa and all the sanctities in the Holy City.

It seems that what Golda Meir, Prime Minister of the occupying state, said when Al-Aqsa Mosque was burned, is that when the next morning came and the Muslims did nothing, she was convinced that this nation is a nation of sleep and a nation of words only, and unfortunately this nation is still a nation of words and sleep, which encourages the occupation to Continuing to Judaize the Holy Mosque.

Al-Aqsa is in danger, Jerusalem is in imminent danger, and the nation must wake up from its deep slumber.
