MECCA: The Grand Mufti of Palestine has warned the Arabs that they will not be able to get back all the territory occupied by Israel in Sinai and in Golan Heights unless they fight for it. Addressing a conference of Muslim organisations … the Grand Mufti warned the Arabs against the scheming enemy… .

Israel, he said, has extended its boundaries by 22 km in Jerusalem, and quoted Zionist leaders … who have openly declared their plans of expansion of territories. “We should learn from their past actions and should not seek excuses for lapses in future,” he said. God has blessed Muslims with vast lands rich in resources which if properly exploited, could help them meet the threat from Israel, he said.

He said the Jewish minority has been changed into majority in Palestine and an aggressive State has been created by the vested interests. … The ousted people of the territory are struggling for their right of self-determination. … The Palestine problem is the result of the biggest conspiracy to liquidate Muslims, and evil forces have collaborated with Zionists. — Correspondent
