JERUSALEM (Ma'an) -- Lawmaker Azzam al-Ahmad was accosted by a group of people upon entering the al-Aqsa compound accompanied by a Jordanian delegation on Tuesday.

Witnesses said a group of Palestinians blocked the path of the Fatah leader and ordered him to leave the mosque before verbally abusing him.

The group was protesting his statements about entering Gaza on top of an Egyptian tank, onlookers observed.

Sheikh Azzam al-Khatib, the director of Jerusalem endowments, told Ma’an that the “al-Aqsa mosque is for all Muslims whatever their political views. Whoever comes here must be respected.”

He added: “Al-Aqsa is a place of worship. This is unacceptable and reprehensible.”

The spot is a holy place for three religions. Muslims would be wise to remember this - it is not exclusively theirs.
