Malaysia, which chairs the world's largest Islamic grouping, condemned Israel on Saturday for allegedly illegal construction work near the Temple Mount, saying it would hurt peace efforts. A statement from Malaysia's foreign ministry accused Israel of "willfully destroying" religious, cultural and heritage sites in the occupied territories, and of "direct aggression" toward the mosque. "We denounce this blatant act of provocation and the complete disregard for the sanctity of the holy mosque," it said. "This act will ignite the feelings of Muslims all over the world and is in fact a retrogressive step in the efforts to achieve peace in the region," it said.
