Video - Top PA imam: 'Moving the U.S. Embassy to Jerusalem Will be a Declaration of War against All Muslims' (MEMRI).
In a January 6 Friday sermon, PA Chief Islamic Justice Sheikh Mahmoud Al-Habbash said that if the new U.S. administration carries out Trump's plan to relocate the U.S. embassy in Israel to Jerusalem, it would be "a declaration of war against all Muslims."
Al-Habbash, who serves as advisor to PA President Mahmoud Abbas on religious and Islamic affairs, called it "a level of political recklessness that is unheard of and said that the entire world would be in danger if America takes this step, which would "open the gates of Hellfire upon everybody."
The sermon, delivered in Ramallah, was attended by top PA officials, including Abbas, and was posted on the YouTube account of the PA's Chief Islamic Justice office.
