It is regrettable that most Muslims do not realize how serious the threat to al-Masjid al-Aqsa and the entire Haram al-Sharif in Jerusalem is. The Zionists are furiously pushing to occupy it while most Muslim regimes, especially in the Middle East, are busy fighting each other and surrendering to the Zionist colonizers. This is truly a dark period in Islamic history, not unlike the time when the Crusaders arrived in Palestine in 1099. Then, too, Muslim rulers were fighting each other and even conspiring with the Crusaders to save their own thrones. It seems Muslims have learned nothing from history.
