Iranian demonstrators on Sunday threatened to destroy the tomb of the biblical Jewish Queen Esther if Israel damages the Aqsa mosque in Jerusalem, AFP reported.

"Muslims beware that they have started the destruction of Al-Aqsa mosque while their second sacred site in Iran, the Esther and Mordecai tomb is at peace and no Muslims make a sound," the student protesters said in a statement.

Archaeological projects around the Aqsa mosque have led some in the Musim world to believe that Israel is endangering the site.
