Zionist Imam: Koran Says Israel Belongs to Jews

Italian Imam Abdul Hadi Palachi, who has become known as the 'Zionist Sheikh' for his outspoken pro-Israel stance, says that the Koran clearly states that the Land of Israel belongs to the Jewish people and that the Temple Mount was the site of the Jewish Temple. "Mohammed himself said that," added Palachi.

He made the comments at a special conference initiated by National Union MK Michael Ben-Ari and attended by Deputy Minister Ayub Kara, former Canadian Justice Minister Irwin Cotler, Shas MK Nissim Zeev and Arab MK Ibrahim Hijazi.
