He considered that the decision to demolish Baitullah Al-Taqwa Mosque in Al-Isawiya by the occupation municipality is a first precedent for demolishing a mosque in the village, and that the mosque is not only for Al-Isawiya but is for the general Muslims.
As for Muhammad Al-Fatih Abu Omar, he wrote: What is this weakness? Has the defense of our sanctities become through activists and electronic invitations…?!
The tweeter Nassm wrote that the occupation wants to demolish the Al-Taqwa Mosque in Jerusalem, “Our mosques will not be demolished,” and said that the occupation knows only the language of demolition, murder and treachery, and she asked: Where are those who were drumming and filming and claiming that they are tolerant of Muslims?!
According to a tweet by activist Ahmed Abu Mila, the occupation municipality issues a decision to demolish Al-Taqwa Mosque in Al-Isawiya, adding that Israel has begun to persist in its attacks in a frightening and major way, especially in the Holy City, as it attacks mosques, churches, heritage, and everything proves the ancient Arab and Islamic identity.
