OCCUPIED JERUSALEM, (PIC)– Sheikh Ekrema Sabri, the head of the higher Islamic authority and Aqsa Mosque preacher, has asserted that none could dispute historical facts, stressing the Islamic identity of the Buraq Wall and the holy site.
Sabri told the Quds TV channel on Wednesday night that facts could not be changed, and are engraved in Muslims minds all over the globe.
He said that the Aqsa Mosque and Buraq Wall (known to Jews as the Wailing Wall) are out of any future negotiations.
The American state department had condemned the publication of a PA document last week affirming that the western wall of the Aqsa Mosque (Buraq wall) is not Jewish but rather is Islamic, describing it as provocative.
The PA in Ramallah removed from its information ministry’s website the document after the US and Israeli criticism.
