“The Western Wall is not a Jewish holy site.”  The Arafat-appointed Mufti of Jerusalem, Sheikh Ikrama Sabri, who is the PLO’s senior religious authority for the city, said: “The Al-Buraq Wall [Western Wall] and its plaza are a Muslim religious property, and the Israeli government’s decisions do not affect it… The Al-Buraq Wall is part of the Al Aqsa Mosque.  The Jews have no relation to it.”
