In a May 29, 2022 video posted on the website of Al-Waqiyah TV (Hizb ut-Tahrir), Palestinian Islamic scholar Yousef Makharzah criticized the visit of Turkey’s Foreign Minister Mevlüt Çavuşoğlu to Israel and the Al-Aqsa Mosque in Jerusalem. He said that Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan is "courting" the Jews, pointing out that when Egyptian President Anwar Sadat visited Israel and the Al-Aqsa Mosque, the Muslims "went berserk" and Allah eventually sent a hero to slaughter him for his treason. Makharzah added that normalization with Israel is treason. For more about Yousef Makharzah, see MEMRITV Clips No. 7849, No. 8500, No. 8557, No. 8877, No. 9207, No. 9356, No. 9411, No. 9435, No. 9524, and No. 9600.

Yousef Makharzah: "All [the Arab and Muslim leaders] want to get closer to the Jews, even that "caliph' Erdoğan, who is followed by the blind. He is endlessly courting the Jews. He sent his foreign minister Mevlüt Çavuşoğlu over here.

"When Sadat visited the Al-Aqsa Mosque, under the protection of the spears of the Jews, people went berserk. They were mad, the felt pain, and their hearts were broken. Their wounds did not heal until Allah sent one of the heroes of the Egyptian army [to kill] Sadat. His name was Khalid Al-Islambouli. He killed [Sadat] on his day of celebration. He laid him to the ground, under people's feet, so that he would know his fate, and know that this is a nation that slaughters its traitors, and kills the despicable among its ranks.

"Normalization [of relations with Israel] is treason which is presented by our scoundrel rulers and kings as the hope for a promising future beyond the horizon —  just like the promises of Satan."
