Hateful Sermon in Mosque in Jerusalem
By Micah Halpern
Sunday June 17, 2018
I've Been Thinking:
On Friday over 90,000 people attended prayer services at the Al Aqsa mosque atop the temple mount in Jerusalem. They were also treated to a lengthy sermon which was extremely critical of the US and Israel.
Al Aqsa is the place where according to Muslim tradition Muhammad journeyed on in his nighttime mirage. It was a guided tour on his famous steed he saw Al Aqsa and even ascended to heaven.
Friday was special because it was Eid al Fitr the holiday/feast that concludes the month long Muslim fast of Ramadan.
In his sermon, the Mufti of Jerusalem, Sheik Muhammad Hussein, used the opportunity to lash out at the US and Israel especially US President Donald Trump. The Mufti shouted that the US peace plan which is about to be unveiled is destructive to the Palestinian cause. He said that "this is an unfair plan that aims at the liquidation of the Palestinian cause."
As you can imagine the Mufti also had sharp words about the move of the US embassy to Jerusalem.
