Al-Aqsa

Last Friday, as I prayed at the East Lansing mosque, the Imam--who leads the worhship--announced a threat by the Israeli fundamentalist group called "Revava" to overtake Majid Al-Aqsa (Al-Aqsa mosque in Jerusalem). The Israeli fundamentalists had publicly announced an attack plan last Saturday (9 April). Busloads of Muslims flocked to protect this incredible landmark. Fortunately, the Israeli government has asked all Israeli rebels to back down, fearing a Palestinian uprising. Of course, this doesn’t mean the situation for the people of Jerusalem has improved; it is just a bit of news from the Muslim world everyone should be aware of.

Here is a link to my favorite source of information: the BBC. If you visit one website daily, this should be it.
