“Palestinian” Mufti Ekrama Sabri incites Muslim mob who stone Christians on Temple Mount

Israel today Israel News Muslims stone Christians on Temple Mount
[February 19, 2012]

A mob of some 50 Palestinian Muslims stoned a group of Christian tourists atop Jerusalem’s Temple Mount on Sunday morning. Three of the Israeli police officers who acted to protect the Christian group were wounded by the stone-throwers.
Police arrested 11 Palestinians, several of them minors, for their role in the attack.


The attack is believed to have been instigated by the former Muslim mufti of Jerusalem, Ekrama Sabri, who told Palestinian media over the weekend that Jewish groups were planning to break into the mosques that occupy the holy compound and desecrate them.

Sabri urged all local Muslims to protect the mosques from “the Israeli conspiracy against the city and its holy places.”

Muslim religious figures regularly claim that Israel is plotting to destroy the Dome of the Rock and the Al Aqsa Mosque to pave the way for the rebuilding of the Jewish Temple, which the Muslims now insist never previously existed.

Because of the constant threat of Muslim violence, and despite the fact that the Temple Mount is the most holy place on earth to Jews and many Christians, the Israeli police comply with Muslim demands for harsh restrictions on non-Muslim visitors to the site. For instance, Jews and Christians are forbidden to carry Bibles atop the Temple Mount or to utter even silent prayers within its walls. Jews and Christians are regularly detained for violating these conditions.

In other violence, Palestinian terrorists operating out of the Gaza Strip fired a Grad-type missile at the southern Israel city of Beersheva on Saturday….



Who is the “Palestinian” Islamic leader former Mufti ‘Ekrama Sabri?’

The Mufti Ekrama Sabri (Ikrema Sabri, Ekrima Sabri, Ikrima Sabri) has Islamized even further the (anti-Israel wave of violence by Arab-Palestinians since 2000, also known as) “intifada” as even more of a Holy war / Jihad,[1] linking the “intifada” to the al-Aqsa mosque:

Our campaign is definitely religious and emanates from belief, although we try to avoid this slogan. The current Intifada of the [Arab and Islamic] world is a religious outburst, because it relates to the Al-Aqsa mosque.[2]

Glorifying child martyrdom, he stated: ‘the younger the martyr, the greater and the more I respect him.’[3] From the US Congress:

In the aftermath of the 1993 Oslo Accords, Yassir Arafat’s Palestinian Authority asserted preeminence on the Temple Mount through the subversion of the Waqf and by coercing the Jordan-affiliated officials and clergymen off the Temple Mount. Arafat personally nominated the virulently anti-Semitic and anti-American Mufti Ikrima Sabri as the Imam of al-Aqsa Mosque. In May 1998, Sabri declared that the Jews have no right to the Temple Mount.[4]

He has been instilling hatred in Palestinian-Arab children.[5]

From his anti-American jihad and his dehumanization of Jews, the radical Islamic “apes and pigs,” fantasy, Ikrama Sabri (In a sermon at Al-Aksa Mosque, July 11, 1997):

“Oh Allah, destroy America . . . Allah shall take revenge on behalf of his prophet against the colonialist settlers who are sons of monkeys and pigs.”[6][7][8]

Author, in his New York Times bestseller book:

The Palestinian Authority–appointed mufti, Sheikh Ikrima Sabri, added strongly anti-American themes to the Temple Mount sermons. Weeks before September 11, Sabri had gone so far to declare before worshipers, “Allah, bring destruction on the United States, on those who help it and on all its collaborators.” He also called for the destruction of Great Britain. His militant anti-Americanism continued years later. For example, on December 3, 2004, he charged the US with waging a cultural war against Muslims, which was part of the “Crusader-Zionist attack on Islam.” It was notable that these themes were still being voiced even after the death of Yasser Arafat and his replacement by Mahmoud Abbas (Abu Mazen), who had been courted by the Bush administration.[9]

Sabri is an outrageous denier of Jewish history,[10][11] part of negative pehenomenon by official PA.[12] A form of Arab racism.[13] He also called upon Jews who migrated (after the Holocaust to their homeland) from Germany, to simply go back there, in an interview to German media.[14][15]

The Arab-Islamic apartheid prohibiting selling land to Jews,[16] was pushed [further] by Mufti Sabri in the 1990s. He has barred all Muslims accused of selling land to Jews from being buried in a Muslim cemetery. And it is punishable by death.[17] PA Mufti Ikrama Sabri:

“Whoever is found to have sold land to Jews, his punishment is death. It is forbidden to pray for him, it is forbidden to purify his body before burial, and it is forbidden to bury him in a Muslim cemetery. We are obligated to remind the public of this religious law, so as not to allow Jews to purchase Arab land and property with dollars they receive from America in order to throw us out of this land.” (In an interview with an Israeli newspaper, May, 1997)[18][19]

He renewed the Islamic decree “fatwa” in 2008.[20]

In 2001, Mufti Sabri on ‘Voice of Palestine,’ Radio (Fatah) asked Allah to protect the Al-Aqsa Mosque and to destroy Israel, America and Britain.[21][22]

He’s an ugly Holocaust denier.[23] Among Islamic ‘religious leaders’ anti-Semitic Holocaust deniers are noted: “Sheikh Mohammad Mehdi Shamseddin of Lebanon, Sheik Ikrima Sabri of Jerusalem and Iranian religious leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei.”[24]

From his virulent anti-Jewish racism, Sabri said in 2000:

“I am filled with rage toward the Jews. I have never greeted a Jew when I came near one. I never will. The Jews do not dare to bother me, because they are the most cowardly creatures Allah has ever created.”[25]

In 2005, he was to be on a “jury” of a Mock-Trial of Bush/Blair/Sharon by the Arab Lawyers Union.[26] The ‘Union of Arab Lawyers’ itself is infamous of horrific anti-Semitism embedded with raw Nazi sentiments like the Sturmer cartoons, as expressed in Durban 2001,[27] racist conference.[28] The other one on the “jury” was George Golloway, who allied himself in 2006[29] with the Nazi SSNP.[30][31]

He was arrested in 2009, for role in [East Jerusalem] Arab anti-Jewish attacks on Yom Kippur.[32]

In February 2012, (now former) Mufti Sabri incited Muslim masses. A mob of 50 Muslims attacked and stoned Christians who visited the historic place of the Jews. Christian tourists and Israeli police protecting them were injured.[33][34]

    British MP George Galloway… Britain’s Stop the War Coalition and the darling of Canada’s “anti-war” left, was on a whirlwind run of speaking engagements in Ontario — one of which was a celebration to commemorate the 74th anniversary of the founding of the Syrian Social Nationalist Party.
    The SSNP is devoted to the creation of a “Greater Syria” that would engulf Israel and Lebanon along with several other countries that lie between the Euphrates and the Nile. For decades, the SSNP was known mainly as a shadowy terrorist organization distinguished by its practice of turning emotionally-disturbed young women into suicide bombers. But last year, right around the time Galloway was visiting Syrian dictator Bashar al-Assad and praising him to the skies as “the fortress of the remaining dignity of the Arabs,” the SSNP was absorbed within Syria’s ruling Baathist coalition.
