Egypt: Grand Imam Condemns Israeli Film On Dome of the Rock Demolition

Al-Azhar Grand Imam Ahmed el-Tayyeb condemned on Monday 4/2/2013 an Israeli film featuring the demolition of the Dome of the Rock, terming it a 'disgraceful behavior'.

The film is showing Israeli Deputy Foreign Minister Danny Ayalon with al-Aqsa Mosque, Islam's third holiest shrine, in the background, and then the Dome of the Rock is being destroyed.

Speaking during a meeting with al-Aqsa Mosque manager Nageh Bukayrat, el-Tayyeb called for raising the awareness of the Arab and Islamic youth about the history of Palestine and al-Aqsa Mosque.
