(Worthy News) - Sheikh Ikrima Sabri, the imam of the Al-Aqsa Mosque in Jerusalem, is accusing "extremist" Jewish organizations of waging a legal battle aimed at achieving Israeli sovereignty in the Al-Aqsa Mosque.

In his weekly sermon on Friday, Sabri said that the dangers to the mosque and the Islamic sites in Jerusalem still exist, including the closure of the Bab al-Rahma prayer house, which he said is an inseparable part of the Al-Aqsa Mosque. He also cited complaints filed by Jewish organizations against the religious endowments and religious institutions of the Al-Aqsa Mosque.

"The occupation is striving in this way to once again and in another way impose sovereignty through a decision of the Zionist court to bring about control over Al-Aqsa," Sabri charged.

Sabri repeated a fatwa he released stating that, according to Islam, it is forbidden use the official Israeli curriculum in schools in Jerusalem because these textbooks are contrary to Islam and Islamic values. Anyone who teaches, studies or sends his children to a school where these curricula are taught is a sinner, he stated. [ Source (Read More...) ]
