Los acuerdos de Israel co estados del Golfo pod´rian cambiar el estatus de Al-Aqsa

August 14, 2020 - Una cláusula de los acuerdos de EAU-Bahréin con Israel puede abrir la posibilidad de que los judíos recen en el Complejo Al-Aqsa en violación del statu quo, según analistas israelíes.

After the 1967 war, Israel and Jordan, the custodian of Al-Haram al-Sharif compound, agreed that while Jews are allowed access to the site, they are not allowed to pray there.

However, Terrestrial Jerusalem, an independent centre that specialises in monitoring the changes and developments taking place in Jerusalem, argues that a clause included in the recent accords between Israel and Gulf Arab states indicates this may no longer be the case.

According to the joint statement between the U.S., Israel, and the UAE released on August 13 by U.S. President Donald Trump: “all Muslims who come in peace may visit and pray at the Al-Aqsa Mosque and Jerusalem's other holy sites should remain open for peaceful worshippers of all faiths.”

The same statement was repeated in the accord with Bahrain, announced on September 11.

Israel defines Al-Aqsa as the mosque structure alone, but Muslims define it as the entire esplanade. The wording of the clause raises fears that Jewish prayers will be allowed inside the compound.

The Al-Aqsa mosque is Islam’s third-holiest site after the Al-Masjid al-Haram mosque in Mecca and the Al-Masjid An-Nabawi in Medina, both in Saudi Arabia.
