Palestinian Authority Mufti of Jerusalem Muhammad Hussein said in an August 10, 2022 show on Palestine TV that the Israelites frequently "indulge" in transgressions and distort the truth. He gave the example of the Jews' "claims" regarding Jerusalem and its holy places, and he accused them of having "attacked" the Al-Aqsa Mosque and the Church of the Holy Sepulcher. In addition, he said that the Jews slayed Allah's prophets and persecuted Jesus.
Sheikh Muhammad Hussein: "[The Israelites] often indulge in transgressions, and they distort words and facts. This is evident today, with their distortions and their claims regarding Jerusalem and its holy places. They have attacked the Al-Aqsa Mosque, as well as the Church of the Holy Sepulcher.
"They slayed the prophets, they really slayed the prophets."
Interviewer: "And now they want to inherit them."
Hussein: "Exactly. Allah has described them as the 'slayers of prophets.' They slayed prophets like John [the Baptist], Zakariya, as well as other prophets, and they persecuted Jesus as well."
