President Shimon Peres and Minorities Minister Avishay Braverman pledged on Sunday that Israel will do its utmost to repair any harm done to Muslim holy sites within its territory. They were responding to a complaint made on Sunday by Sheikh Ahmed Natur, president of the Sharia Court of Appeal which deals with Muslim religious issues related to marriage, divorce and other family matters within the framework of Israeli Law. Natur expressed his concern that mosques throughout the country were being forcibly closed, and Muslim cemeteries desecrated. "Hopefully we will find rational people who consider all holy places, regardless of the faith of the people to which they belong to be respected by all."
