“Several days ago, the Islamic world commemorated the Isra and Mi’arage [… ascent of Muhammad to heaven]. Did you “seriously” celebrate the Isra and Mi’arage with all your heart? And by doing this, did you fulfill your obligations to the Alaksa Mosque?

In the beginning, during the time of Muhammad and his friends they prepared an army and went forth to conquer the blessed land… and not by coincidence did Saladin liberate Jerusalem [through war] from the hands of the Crusaders and go into Jerusalem on Friday, which was the day of the Isra and Mi’arage on the 27th of the month of Rajeb. This is the work that Allah commanded us to do for Jerusalem.

Today, the residents of Jerusalem look forward to this commemoration of the 27th of the month Rajeb, sadly waiting during 31 years for the 27th of Rajeb to come and the imprisonment of the Alaksa Mosque will be lifted and the country will be liberated from the hands of the conquerors and oppressors.

The question is asked, how was Alaksa Mosque lost? How was Palestine lost, and how is it that the Muslims did not succeed in saving her? And what is the way to regain her? Are the Muslims allowed to turn their back to Jerusalem and wait for negotiation in order to return the oppressed rights to their owner?…

The residents of Palestine were not the reason for the loss of Alaksa, rather the weakness of the Arab world, which was torn, and that is how Palestine was a tasty morsel for the enemy…

So we see that they [the Jews] have complete control of the political leadership, not only in America and the Western world, but also of the leaderships of all countries, including the leaders of the Arab and Muslim world. Jewish money and media are the leaders of nations and continents. This should not scare the Islamic nation, or that she surrender to the reality, because the reality will not remain this way for long, because Allah promised that they would be humiliated and tortured from time to time when they spoil….

The Jews entered the land of Palestine during the time of David, may he rest in peace… but when they sinned against the prophets, Allah brought upon them those who banished them from this land and they were dispersed all over the world… They entered again not by the commandment of Allah, but rather from humans.

Oh the believers – all the afflictions that come upon us from the Jews and from America and their friends, and from the oppression of the leaders who turn around in the path of America [like the stars], this must pass and this demands an Islamic awakening… and Allah will give the victory… “

Question: “Will the obligations regarding the prohibition of incitement hinder the freedom of expression and the human rights and the political liberty?”

Nabil Shaath: “A legitimate question, and it indicates that there are two issues in the Wye Agreements… We insisted on inserting an entire paragraph because all involvement in security issues will be implemented by the Palestinian law and the international law, and it is a man’s right to express himself and to organize etc. in accordance with democratic freedom… The second issue, that Arafat is fighting for, is the separation between actions with the political organization of the civil institutions, and its military arm which carries out killings and military activities against Israel, and this is a very important point, because [we] could not, in the Wye Accord, agree with the Israelis on the limitation of [freedom of] expression on anything but one point – that no man be allowed to call for murder, whether a murder of a Palestinian or of an Israeli.
