The zionists’ attempts to take over Masjid al-Aqsa need highlighting and the Ummah as whole must take responsibility for its protection.
Amid all the heart-breaking challenges Muslims face worldwide, we must not forget Masjid al-Aqsa that is under threat from the Zionists. Their designs are well known: they want to destroy Masjid al-Aqsa to build their mythical temple. The question we must ask is: are there any plans to save Masjid al-Aqsa? Apart from Islamic Iran and perhaps Turkey, we cannot expect other Muslim governments to do anything. Being proactive is more important than reacting angrily later.
