From Ynet News, 17/4/06, by Paiz Abbas ...

Marking anniversary of prophet Muhammad’s birth, 30,000 Muslims gather in Kfar Kana soccer stadium in event organized by Islamic Movement; leader Shiekh Salah calls for return of Jerusalem to Arab, Palestinian, Muslim hands

... The event was organized by the Islamic Movement... (and) ... broadcast live on television throughout the Middle East and elsewhere by Al-Jazeera

...Sheikh Salah addressed the Arab world, calling on them to "save Jerusalem from the hands of the Jews .... Jerusalem will soon be the capital of the world Islamic nation, and it will be governed by a caliph... The Six Days War hasn’t ended since 1967, and it continues in Jerusalem... They want to build a temple instead of the al-Aqsa mosque, and that will never happen...” ...(he) appealed to the Arab world to establish a fund to “save Jerusalem” from the Jews and restore it as an exclusively Arab, Palestinian and Muslim city.

Regarding the Palestinian situation, Salah expounded at length about the Israeli siege of the Palestinian territories, especially since Hamas’ victory in the parliamentary elections. “They want to starve our people. Will you let them?” Salah demanded of his audience.
