A settlement plan to convert the palace of the Mufti Al-Husseini in Jerusalem into a synagogue

Days of Palestine – Jerusalem – The Israeli extremist “Ateret Cohanim” settlement association announced Sunday that it plans to convert the palace of Mufti Haj Amin al-Husseini in the Sheikh Jarrah neighborhood of occupied East Jerusalem into a synagogue, and to double the number of settlement units in the vicinity of the palace from 28 to 56 settlement units.

Ten years ago, the settler association demolished the Shepherd Hotel in the courtyard of the Mufti Palace, and since then it has built 28 settlement units on its ruins, to which no settlers have yet been transferred, but the settlement association kept the Mufti Palace, which was built in 1929, deserted until now.

The Israeli newspaper “Jerusalem Post” quoted a spokesman for Ateret Cohanim, that the Israeli settlement association intends to convert the 500-square-meter palace into a synagogue.

“The historic house in the heart of the site will be preserved and reused to meet societal needs, including a synagogue and possibly a daycare center,” he said, referring to the palace of Mufti Haj Amin al-Husseini.
