JERUSALEM, Thursday, September 15, 2022 (WAFA) – In a provocative step, extremist Jewish lawmaker and rabbi, Yehuda Glick, stormed today Bab al-Rahma Islamic cemetery, adjacent to al-Aqsa mosque in Jerusalem, where he raised the Israeli flag and performed a Talmudic ritual there.
The Islamic Waqf department in Jerusalem, which is in charge of al-Aqsa Mosque compound, said the extremist Jewish lawmaker stormed the cemetery, raised the Israeli flag on one of the graves, and blew the Shofar (a musical horn typically made of a ram's horn used for Jewish religious purposes).
To be noted, extreme settler organizations recently announced their intentions to blow the Shofar inside the courtyards of al-Aqsa mosque as part of their celebrations of the Jewish New Year, Rosh Hashanah.
The Shofar blowing comes as part of Jewish Talmudic rituals that bears a political connotation in dealing with the al-Aqsa mosque which fanatic Jews want to destroy and replace with a Jewish temple by claiming the ancient Jewish temples were once located on the site of Al-Aqsa Mosque compound.
Muslim scholars have strongly rejected the Jewish claim to the site as a fallacy.
