Gaza Foreign Ministry to Putin: the Buraq Wall is an Islamic sacred place

GAZA,(PIC)– The Ministry of Foreign Affairs expressed shock at Russian President Vladimir Putin’s statements during his visit to the Buraq Wall in Jerusalem, a yarmulke on his head, commenting on the deep Jewish connection to the holy site: “You can see how the Jewish past is engraved in the stones of Jerusalem,” he said in total violation to all historical facts and international resolutions topped by the Shaw Commission in 1930 which concluded that the Muslims had absolute ownership of the Wall and adjacent property.

The ministry sent a protest letter to the Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov, the Secretary General of the Arab League, Dr. Nabil el-Arabi, and Dr. Ekmeleddin Ihsanoglu Secretary General of the Organization of the Islamic Cooperation.

The ministry confirmed that the Wailing Wall is “an Islamic sacred place,” stressing that Wall and adjacent property are Islamic Waqf and Jews have no right over it.

The ministry asked the Russian Foreign Ministry to clarify its position on the city of Jerusalem and the Islamic holy sites, as Russia appears to be endorsing the Israeli falsification of facts and persecution against Palestinians in the occupied city of Jerusalem such as the ethnic cleansing and house demolition policies as well as the digging of tunnels under the Aqsa Mosque, which aims to demolish the mosque and to establish the claimed temple.

The ministry also called on the Organization of Islamic Cooperation and the Arab League to press Russia to clarify its position on the Islamic holy places.
