Israeli officials remove 30-year-old Islamic sign in East Jerusalem

JERUSALEM (Ma’an) — Israeli municipality officials on Wednesday removed a 12-foot sign depicting a Quranic verse in classic Arabic calligraphy that has been displayed in a Palestinian shopping center outside the Damascus gate in occupied East Jerusalem for more than 30 years, a local shop owner told Ma’an.Mustafa Abu Zuhra said Israeli municipality workers used a crane to take down the large sign right outside his shop, which read “there is no god but Allah and Muhammad is the messenger of Allah.”According to Zuhra, the Israeli officials told locals that the sign was taken down because “it is a symbol of Islam and cannot be displayed.”Zuhra added that sign had stood outside his store for decades and has been properly licensed through the city.
