How Will Palestine Be Freed?

 

… Islam and its Islamic affection can be found in the midst of the history of Palestine from the time that Muslims ruled over this land and learn about the shakedowns and propaganda [of enemies]. When Islam entered Palestine, it was the herald of equality and brotherhood, and for this reason a general amnesty was announced. The practices of the Crusaders and Zionists were quite different from the views and actions of Muslims; as a result they were in conflict and in a different state. These two movements were guided from different channels or by specific people with raciest views, whose only aim was to control Palestine and Bethlehem, which were very important to the followers of Prophets Moses, Jesus and Mohammad, and bring it under their control, and by making them exclusive to themselves by creating restrictions and ejecting the followers of other religions, exercising territorial sovereignty, to the degree that, these days in the occupied Palestine, mosques and churches are ruined and only synagogues and Baha’i temples are benefiting from respect.
