What do you think? Are the statements made by the mufti of Jerusalem the very definition of extremism? Is this the leader of a people who really believe that Israel will give up Jerusalem to terrorists?

JERUSALEM MUFTI ISSUES LAND TRANSFER FATWA
Article Courtesy: Jerusalem Post
The fatwa, according to Palestinian sources, came in response to an Israeli bill allowing Jews to purchase land in Area C of the West Bank. The bill, put forward by MK Bezalel Smotrich (Bayit Yehudi), aims to change a 1953 Jordanian law that prevents foreigners and non-Arabs from directly purchasing land in the West Bank.
The explanation for the bill states that it is “unacceptable” for Israeli citizens to be barred from buying land just because they are Israeli citizens.
