It is a mockery to those who claim to be “mujahideen” but in fact it is a wolf in sheep’s clothing of the terrorists, who kill innocent people in places that are not supposed to. In the land of Palestine, the place where the brethren colonized and expelled from his homeland, the holy places being harassed every day, that’s where you should wage jihad (war). Not in Syria, Libya, especially in Indonesia. Or if you need to strive in the holy land to expel infidel soldiers who were there, who had been expelled Rosulullah harassing people musrik and infidels from the holy land 14 centuries ago.

An old picture taken by Zeppelin aircraft of the 1930s have proved that when Israel occupied Al-Quds (Jerusalem) in 1967 (after the Arab armies dastardly Jordan resigned from the battlefield), they have destroyed an ancient mosque that was established at the time Saladdin al Ayyubi and located not far from Al Aqsa Mosque.

The destruction of the mosque “Sheikh Eid” is a part of the policy of destruction of the mosques in the land of Palestine by the Israeli occupation. And this issue back into the spotlight after the emergence of acts of vandalism by Jewish people lately in various places on the ground both in Jerusalem and the occupied West Bank.

Following the burning of a mosque in Ramallah by the Israelis two weeks ago, Dan Halutz, former Israel kastaf AB openly admitted that the Israeli government did not want to take legal action against acts of vandalism against mosques in Palestine.

“If we want to catch the perpetrators would have been destruction,” he told Israel army radio.

The issue of the destruction of mosques “Sheikh Eid” is now a debate among experts Israel and Palestine. Israel insists the mosque is of course no longer exists when they occupied Al Quds, although the evidence suggests otherwise.

Before the discovery of an old photograph of the above, this year, construction on the former location of where the mosque is located, has sparked concerns of archaeologists because they are destroying ancient relics that are under the mosque, including the tomb of Sheikh Eid along with the bones, the great scholars who lived in the mosque.

Mosque “Sheikh Eid” complexes located next to the holy Haram al-Sharif al-Aqsa Mosque where the establishment, and also adjacent to the Wailing Wall, the holiest of the Jewish people. After the occupation of Jerusalem by Israel in 1967 (if only to defend Jerusalem when it was Hizbollah fighters, would be another story) Israel effectively became ruler of the Aqsa Mosque by the people of Israel be standing right on top of the temple of Solomon, the most holy place Jews that the Romans destroyed in 70 AD.

From year to year appear samakin demands great among the Jews to worship at the Haram al-Sharif compound. Some extreme religious groups threatened to blow up the Al Aqsa Mosque and build a Jewish temple on it. In 2000 Ariel Sharon Zionist leader who was then a leader of the opposition even provocative act by entering the Al Aqsa compound to trigger a movement of Intifada II.

Now the former mosque complex “Sheikh Eid” is being built a shelter for Jews ziarawan. Development that is part of an Israeli plan to expand the place of worship for Jews ziarawan triggering tensions with the Muslim Palestinian people because it inevitably construction mengerus holy places of Islam. Developments, of course, contrary to international law which considers Jerusalem is an occupied land should be returned to the Palestinians.

Benjamin Kedar, deputy chairman of the Israel National Academy of Sciences, the inventor of the ancient mosque photos “Sheikh Eid” in German archives center called Israel’s treatment of the mosque as a “crime archeology”. Under cover of darkness, Israel sent bolduzer-bolduzer to get rid of 1,000 Palestinians living in the former mosque complex so that the construction of Jewish pilgrimage site can be done.
Mosque “Sheikh Eid” was founded by Malik al-Afdil, one of the sons of the conqueror Saladdin al Ayyubi Crusaders, is one of three historic relics remaining Shaladdin era. Location and holiness written in a historical document of the 15th century. After the funeral of Sheikh Eid in the 17th century mosque in the compound, where it became one of the major pilgrimage site for Muslims.

This mosque, as the entire region surrounding Mughrabi destroyed by Israel shortly after their occupation of Jerusalem in 1967. Plaza and shelter Jewish pilgrims who now occupies the former location of the mosque is now the center of the development of the Jews in the old town of Jerusalem, undermining the places owned by Muslims and Christians, and carried out by armed Jewish settlers protected by Israeli security forces.

The destruction of the mosque “Sheikh Eid” echo conflicts over the development plan “Museum of Tolerance” by Simon Wiesenthal Centre (based at the United Jewish Foundation of vigorous campaigning for tolerance to the Zionist movement worldwide, including Indonesia among intellectuals). This museum will be built on an ancient Muslim cemetery in the Mamilla, Jerusalem, in which there are believed to be the tomb of a friend Rosulullah.

Israeli media reported in 2008 that more than 100 bones have been unloaded at the site should not be built museum. But the development is hampered due to the emergence of global financial crisis.

While sensitive to violations of this making headlines, various violations of freedom of worship for Muslims 1.3 million Palestinians living in occupied territories, escaped the attention of the mass media. Violations of course, is the largest seizure of the property rights of the Palestinian people by Israel. Waqaf lands inherited over generations by the people of Islam for purposes of worship, schools, hospitals, places of burial, to the market, being one of the main target of the Jewish people to be seized.

Since the establishment of the state of Israel on Palestinian soil in 1948, all land waqaf covering 10% of the area of ​​Jerusalem seized by the government of Israel, together with 750,000 residents of property owned by Palestinians who were expelled and became refugees in neighboring countries.

Now there’s only mosque in 120 cities and villages of Palestinian lives, with strict control of Israel, including the Al Aqsa. Israel has the right to completely control-board pay raise and mosque officials, including overseeing the entire congregation. Israel seized all the property of Palestinians living in 500 villages, including mosques and churches. In cities that are now predominantly Jews, like Tel Aviv, mosques and Muslim tombs were no longer visible.

Many of the Palestinian mosques are converted into bars, nightclubs, museums, shops, warehouses up to the synagogue. One incident of violence occurred in the 1950s when the cemetery Abdul Prophet converted into a five star hotel Israel and Jewish settlements. The mosques are still standing and now abandoned slum areas.

Nothing more can be expected for Israel to protect the holy places of Muslims, especially after the 1978 Law Antiquities Act provides no protection at all against Islamic holy places built after the year 1700. Even the mosques are more ancient prohibition was sometimes a place to visit because beada in a military zone Israel, including the beautiful mosque Ghabisiya. While Hittin mosque built in 1187 Sultan Saladdin near the sea of ​​Galilee is now in ruins. Palestinians who live nearby forbidden to fix it.

Ironically, the Israeli government is now conducting a campaign program “rescue ancient mosques”, a campaign ostensibly because it more and more mosques are destroyed without a mosque was successfully restored. When the Palestinian people to rebuild their destroyed mosque in a village in Sarafand, the mosque was destroyed again by Israel overnight without explanation.

Even when the defense of their sacred places of the Muslims had won the lawsuit, it would have no impact on the field. Last year Israel’s Supreme Court ordered the government to make the city of Beersheba Mosque which has been renovated as a museum of Islam, not a museum of general local government desired. But the government did not respond. They held exhibitions releven not with Islam, including beer and wine festival.

Suppression of the rights of Muslims to worship is likely to increase in future in Israel. Last year PM Netanyahu issued a ban on mosques using the speakers for the call to prayer. Beersheba city government refused to provide a place of worship in this town of 1,000 families were Muslim, and every day hundreds of people visited the Arab Bedouin in the Negev desert. In 2007, Palestinians in Jaffa, Tel Aviv suburb inhabited by Arabs and Jews, failing to file a petition to investigate the existence of the lands waqaf after local authorities refused on the grounds: “Israel will harm international relations”, the very reason not relevant.

In 2009, after five years of the struggle of the Muslims of Israel, Israeli Supreme Court rejected a petition demanding the recognition of the protection of holy places of Islam in the Holy Places Protection Act which was enacted in 1967. But despite claiming the holy places of Islam are in a state of “pathetic” Supreme Court rejected the petition on the grounds are too sensitive. The next Supreme Court ordered the government to do the rehabilitation program of Islamic holy places and the government of Israel answered with a program valued at $ 500,000, the value of which is considered as “pathetic”.
