Video - Egyptian Novelist Youssef Ziedan: The Al-Aqsa Mosque Is Not Sacred to the Muslims or the Jews
In a recent TV interview, Egyptian novelist and scholar Youssef Ziedan said that the Al-Aqsa Mosque in Palestine is not the Al-Aqsa Mosque referred to in the Quran.
Citing ancient scholars, Ziedan said that the Al-Haram Mosque and Al-Aqsa Mosque were "on the road from Mecca to Ta'if."
"Neither we nor the [Jews] have anything to do with it," he said. "It's all politics." The interview aired on the Egyptian CBC TV channel on December 3, 2015.
