Following are excerpts from an interview with Egyptian Minister of Religious Endowments Tal'at Afifi, which aired on Sada Al-Balad TV on March 14, 2013.

Interviewer: Will you visit Israel only with a Palestinian visa?

Tal'at Afifi: This is premature. Let's wait until it happens. However, we hope that the words of the Prophet Muhammad will be fulfilled: "Judgment Day will not come before the Muslims fight the Jews, and the Jews will hide behind the rocks and the trees, but the rocks and the trees will say: Oh Muslim , oh servant of Allah, there is a Jew behind me, come and kill him – except for the gharqad tree, which is one of the trees of the Jews."

We fully believe that the future of this land lies with Islam and the Muslims.
