Muslim Scholars Condemn Israeli 'Aggression' At Al-Aqsa

International Union of Muslim Scholars decries ‘blatant attack on Islamic holy sites’ by Israeli police.

The International Union of Muslim Scholars (IUMS) on Thursday condemned recent assaults by Israeli police on Palestinian Muslims inside Jerusalem's flashpoint Al-Aqsa Mosque complex.

"The recent closure of the Al-Aqsa Mosque complex, along with assaults on worshipers by Israeli police, constitute blatant attacks on Islamic holy sites," the Doha-based IUMS said in a statement.

It also blamed Arab countries for allegedly seeking to normalize their relations with Israel.

"The [Arab] regimes rushing to normalize ties with the Zionist entity bear considerable responsibility [for the recent violence] by giving the green light for such attacks," the IUMS asserted.

It went on to urge the Jeddah-based Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) to take immediate action with a view to preempting what it described as "dangerous aggression" by Israel.

Tension has mounted in occupied East Jerusalem since last month, when Israeli police briefly sealed the Al-Aqsa Mosque compound's Al-Rahma Gate, triggering angry demonstrations by local Palestinians.

In the weeks since, the Israeli authorities have banned scores of Palestinians -- including religious officials -- from entering the mosque complex, which for Muslims represents the world's third holiest site.

Israel occupied East Jerusalem, in which the Al-Aqsa is located, during the 1967 Arab-Israeli War. It annexed the entire city in 1980 in a move never recognized by the international community.
