"People often ask how it is that the future of Palestine presents such difficulties. The reason is simply that Jerusalem ― you cannot separate Jerusalem from Palestine ― is the sacred city of so many creeds and warring faiths. Not only is it the holy place of all the Christian churches, ― and two of them quarrel bitterly over it, the Greeks and the Latin’s, ― but it is also one of the most sacred places in the Mohammedan world. Mecca and Medina are hardly more sacred than the Mosque of Omar... "That is a fact which is often ignored by Europeans, who forget that to turn the Mohammedans
out of the temple enclosure would disturb the whole Moslem world, from the Straits Settlements to Albania. We must never forget that Mohammedan pilgrims from India visit Jerusalem, just as Christian
pilgrims visit it from Europe. Lastly, Jerusalem is profoundly sacred to the Jews, and the Jews are beginning to be locally numerous and important. Most certainly there are no elements of difficulty
wanting in the problem of the future of Palestine." WA Spicer 1912.
"Our capital shall not be Cairo, Mecca, or Medina. It shall be Jerusalem, Allah willing. Our cry shall be: “Millions of martyrs march
toward Jerusalem.” Millions of martyrs march toward Jerusalem. Indeed, all the lovers of martyrdom are Hamas. I say from this podium, from Al-Mahalla, from the heart of the Delta, the heart of Egypt, so that the whole world may hear. We say it loud and clear: Yes, Jerusalem is our goal. We shall pray in Jerusalem, or else we shall
die as martyrs on its threshold.” Safwat Higazi - Muslim Brotherhood Egypt
