DOHA – As fury continued over the visit of Egypt’s Mufti to Al-Quds (occupied Jerusalem), prominent scholar Sheikh Yusuf Al-Qaradawi denounced the visit as haram, unlawful, for normalizing ties with Israel and its military occupation of the Muslim holy city.Some of the Christians, clearly, never got that memo.

“There is a mutual agreement among Muslims and Christians that visiting Al-Quds shall remain prohibited as long as Israel continues to occupy it by force.”
