      Egyptian Cleric Repeats Call against Jerusalem Visits

      Egyptian Muslim leader Yousef al-Qaradawi has repeated a ruling stating that Muslims and Arabs may not visit Jerusalem. However, he made an exception for Palestinian Authority Arabs.

      Al-Qaradawi believes that Arab visits to Jerusalem would show approval of Israel’s control of the city.

      His latest comments came in response to PA Chairman Mahmoud Abbas’ call on Muslims worldwide to visit the city in order to fight “Judaization.”
