The National Bureau for the defense of land has warned against a serious Israeli scheme to control the Aqsa mosque.
The National Bureau, in its weekly report issued on Sunday, pointed to the Israeli attempt to impose new de facto conditions on the ground, where the extremist MK Aryeh Eldad suggested a draft bill to split worship times between Jews and Muslims at the Aqsa Mosque.
The report noted that the bill coincided with the Israeli right-wing proposal to divide the Aqsa mosque between Muslims and Jews in a similar attempt to the arrangement at the Ibrahimi mosque in Al-Khalil.
The scheme was also evident in the Israeli authorities’ decision to turn the Aqsa yards into public parks in a prelude to turn them to Israeli tourist sites and then Jewish worship places to establish the alleged temple, the report said.
The report noted that the Knesset Finance Committee approved millions of shekels to the settlements. In addition, it pointed out that the Islamic Waqf documents and the civil administration maps confirmed that thousands of acres seized by settlers in the Jordan Valley belong to the Islamic Waqf.
