The head of the Supreme Council for Islamic courts in the territories, Yousef Adeis, issued a statement saying "The Al-Aqsa mosque had just entered the stage of the extreme danger that is facing during which the fiercest war waged against it by the Government of the Israeli occupation and the settlers who seek to destroy it and build a temple in its place."
Adeis added that there have been more and more covert and overt meetings by the leaders and rabbis of Jewish groups recently, in coordination with the Israeli military establishment, which aim to develop a number of schemes that seek to demolish the Al Aqsa Mosque. One of them is to create an artificial earthquake that would collapse the mosque, after they perform all the excavations underneath the Temple Mount necessary to ensure that it would work.
Adeia is demanding an Arab-Islamic emergency summit meeting of to discuss the implications of these imaginary threats to Al Aqsa Mosque.
There were major, deadly earthquakes in the area in 1759, 1837, and 1927. One can surmise that another one is due in the next few years. People like this want to ensure that when it happens - everyone will blame the Jews.
