Israel Land Fund incites for Ras al-Amud mosque demolition

18:00 Jun 20 2011 Ras al-Amud district, Jerusalem

NAZARETH (PIC) 20 June -- A Jewish settler organization has been inciting for the demolition of a mosque in Jerusalem’s Ras al-Amud district, with hopes of rallying support of high-profile Jews meeting for the Israeli Presidential Conference this year. The Israel Land Fund, which advocates and funds Jewish settler activity in the holy land, has claimed that locals carried out "illegal" restoration works on the Mohammad Al-Fatih mosque, which overlooks Al-Aqsa Mosque southeast of the Old City. Earlier in January, the mosque was raided by Jewish settlers claiming the municipality had ordered to halt restoration works. They also called police, whose elements raided the mosque alleging to be looking for illegal Palestinian construction workers from the West Bank.
