United Arab List-Ta’al head MK Ahmed Tibi headed a procession to the Al-Aksa Mosque on the Temple Mount on Saturday and raised the Palestinian flag.

“Al-Quds [Jerusalem] is Arab and the capital of Palestine and the Al-Aksa Mosque is a place of Muslim prayer,” declared Tibi, Israel’s Channel 2 reported.

The procession was meant to celebrate the birthday of the Muslim prophet Muhammad.

Tibi also criticized the US administration for rejecting the UN Security Council resolution calling for a Palestinian state saying it takes “a double standard that continues the hostile policy to the rights of the Palestinian people,” according to the report.
