The Muslims’ victory in al-Quds for al-Masjid al-Aqsa gives cause for celebration. It was not achieved by the pathetic Palestinian (non)Authority, the agents of Zionism. Nor was any Arabian regime involved. They hardly have time to raise their heads from sajdah to their true god — Zionism.
Credit for victory in al-Quds goes to the ‘ulama’ and the people residing in the occupied city. The ‘ulama’ mobilized the people in a show of solidarity that sent shivers down the Zionists’ collective spine. They do not care for the Palestinians’ rights; steadfastness of the masses forced the Zionists to give up. This has enormous implications for the future.
