Islamic Ruling: Forbidden For Muslims to Leave Israel

An Islamic religious ruling by the Mufti of Jerusalem forbids Moslems from leaving Israel.

Recently, the Hamas-affiliated Association of Religious Sages of Palestine publicized its ruling forbidding emigration from the lands of the Palestinian Authority.

The Mufti has now joined in with his own ban, released on Monday, May 14. The rulings are an indication of the great fear in the Arab world that young people from the Palestinian Authority are increasingly seeking their fortunes abroad.
