Sheikh Palazzi Expresses Solidarity with Jews and Christian-Zionists

Muslim Sheikh Pays Solidarity Visit to the Jews of Hevron
by Nissan Ratzlav-Katz
(IsraelNN.com) Noam Arnon, a spokesperson for the Jewish community of Hevron, told Arutz Sheva about a very unusual guest who came to show his support on Monday.

Making the trip from Italy to Hevron for the second time in recent years, the head of the Italian Muslim Assembly, Sheikh Abdul Hadi Palazzi, met with local Jewish leaders in a show of solidarity. The sheikh, an Italian national who received his Islamic education from leading mainstream Saudi and Egyptian Sunni institutions, believes that his religion obligates its followers to support Jewish sovereignty in the Land of Israel. In support of his position, Sheikh Palazzi quotes Koranic passages and traditions that affirm God’s assignment of this land for the Jews.

As Palazzi has written of himself, he is “a Zionist Muslim clergyman and a friend of the Jewish people.”

“We are talking about a unique personality,” Arnon told Arutz Sheva. “A man who connects warmly with everyone he meets. A very brave individual.”

During Sheikh Palazzi’s visit to Hevron, community leaders discussed with him ways in which Islamist fundamentalism might be curbed. “He emphasized Saudi Arabia as responsible for extremism,” Arnon said. “It funds mosques in Europe and the United States and then determines who will be allowed to speak in them. In this way, Islam becomes more and more extreme, which is a dangerous trend.”

In his activities in Italy, Arnon explained, Palazzi teaches what he calls “the real Islam”, which he believes includes tolerance, Jewish-Muslim fellowship and Zionism. “He even organized a protest outside the Iranian embassy in Rome when Ahmadinejad talked about destroying Israel,” Arnon added.

Sheikh Palazzi, who is also the Muslim co-founder of the Islam-Israel Fellowship of the Root & Branch Association, told his Hevron hosts that Italian Jews are now shifting their political positions further to the Right. In the past, according to Palazzi, Jews in Italy were primarily supporters of the Left, but a slow change in underway. Arnon said that Sheikh Palazzi believes his efforts, as a non-Jew supporting Israel, have contributed to that shift.

Dear David,
I am simply shocked by what I read. I knew the Israeli government is becoming hard, cruel and dictatorial toward opposition groups (the wife of an activists protesting against disengagement was recently sent to jail together with her month years old daughter) but I never suspected this kind of attitude was extended not only to Israeli citizens, but to Zionist American citizens visiting Israel, too. Plenty of U.S. leftists regularly visit Israel in order to campaign against Israel and to support PLO, and they are not treated in the way you were treated.

Please, accept my solidarity.

All the best,
Sheikh Abdul Hadi Palazzi

Sheik Palazzi has also received and read Beyond Babylon: Europe’s Rise and Fall.

Sheik Palazzi on Beyond Babylon

Shaykh Prof. Abdul Hadi Palazzi
Rome, Italy (6/19/2005)

Dear Mr. Ben-Ariel,

I finished reading your valuable book and appreciated its contents. I was already informed about the Worldwide Church of God and already had the opportunity to read books by Rev. Armstrong and issues of “The Plain Truth”. Although from a religious point of view I obviously disagree with some of the beliefs which your Church preaches, I surely agree with your analysis of German and Vatican in creating as a new European anti-God Empire. I would like that Europeans understand what is happening under their eyes. Thank you very much for the copies you sent me. I hope many people will have the opportunity to read your book and reflect upon its contents.

All the very best,

Shaykh Prof. Abdul Hadi Palazzi Director
