Al-Aqsa Mosque Compound Targetted
Al-Aqsa Mosque Compound Targetted: Lurking Dangers between Politics and Prophecies
The Al-Aqsa sanctuary is undoubtedly one of the most sensitive and contentious locations on earth and a sticking point in the Israel-Palestinian negotiations. There is confusion about what exactly constitutes Al-Aqsa, what is happening at the compound, and why now. This bulletin addresses these issues and provides a historical background and an overview of the latest developments. It explains the site's significance for Muslims; the rising influence of the Jewish 'Temple movements', their attempts to force a change to the status quo; and the Palestinian narrative of the latest events amid fears of the danger faced by the Al-Aqsa sanctuary.
