Heads of the Islamic movement inside the Green Line in Jerusalem and the supreme Islamic association and ministry of Religious Affairs have revealed that Israel is constructing a secret synagogue for the purpose of Jewish rituals beneath Al-Aqsa mosque in Jerusalem.
"The Israeli authorities have been exploiting the big gates of the western side of al-Aqsa since 1996 through conducting a series of excavation works which ended with clandestinely erecting a synagogue," Sheikh Ikrema Sabri explained. He claims this construction threatens the structural integrity of the mosque, is built on a sacred muslim graveyard as part of the recently opened Museum of Tolerance, and is an attempt to bolster public opinion about the presence of a temple there which muslims believe have no factual existence.
