Israeli production company desecrates mosque, makes offensive remarks
Israeli production company desecrates mosque, makes offensive remarks
The Islamic Movement in 1948 occupied Palestine condemned an Israeli movie production company for violating the sanctity of an old mosque, known as the Mosque of Ali bin Abi Taleb, in the city of Qalansuwa in central Palestine.

The acting/filming crew entered the mosque in provocative attire on Monday and made insulting remarks against Allah. The film crew also drank wine next to the mosque, all while taking footage for an Israeli film about the West Bank and Gaza Strip.

The violation of holy symbols angered residents, who in turn demanded that the Zionist crew leave the mosque. When they refused, the situation escalated into a few-minute scuffle. The camera crew was eventually removed from the mosque.

Sheikh Moayyed al-Uqbi, an administrator of the Islamic Movement in Qalansuwa, denounced the act of desecration in a press statement, remarking that "Israeli abuse has reached a peak today, including language spoken against God and violation of the mosque’s sanctity and its surroundings, and even abuse against the entire people of Qalansuwa."

"We, as an Islamic movement, condemn all of these violations and acts of abuse, and demand that the municipality issues an order banning the completion of their filming in the vicinity of the mosque and the entire city," the Sheikh added.

Palestinian sources said that the Israeli film production company has been producing a film about the West Bank and Gaza Strip for two weeks in the Qalansuwa city area, because of its resemblance to the villages of the West Bank and Gaza.
