Libel: Israel to rid Jerusalem of non-Jews
Libels
Since the Palestinian Authority was established it has systematically indoctrinated young and old to hate Israelis and Jews. Using media, education, and cultural structures that it controls, the PA has actively promoted religious hatred, demonization, conspiracy libels, etc. These are packaged to present Israelis and Jews as endangering Palestinians, Arabs, and all humanity. This ongoing campaign has so successfully instilled hatred that fighting, murder and even suicide terror against Israelis and Jews are seen by the majority of Palestinians as justified self-defense and as Allah’s will.


Throughout history bogus conspiracy accusations have been used to incite hatred, violence, and mass murder. The myriad conspiracy libels concerning Israel, Israelis and Jews are an integral part of the Palestinian Authority’s ongoing hate promotion. PA libels claim that Israel conspires to infect Palestinians with AIDS, spread drug addiction, conspired and successfully murdered Arafat, and more. The PA’s goal has been to inculcate hatred to the degree that fighting and murdering Jews and Israelis will be glorified as heroic self-defense.
Libel: Israel to rid Jerusalem of non-Jews
Integral to Palestinian ideology is the denial of 3,000 years of Jewish history in Jerusalem. Accordingly, any contemporary manifestation of Jewish life and development in Jerusalem is labeled by the Palestinian Authority as “Judaization.” As part of this historical revisionism, the PA disseminates the libel that Israel is planning to expel Arabs from Jerusalem to further the “Judaization” of the city. Fabrications include: PA alarmism regarding the alleged destruction of Islamic and Christian holy sites by Israel, PA hate language such as "ethnic cleansing", and even the charge that Israel intentionally infested Arab neighborhoods in Jerusalem with "super-rats" order to chase inhabitants away. The Jerusalem libel is designed to evoke religious hatred by portraying Israel and the Jews as the enemy of Arabs, Islam, Christians and Christianity.
This cartoon with the caption “Judaization of Jerusalem” shows, from right to left, a demonized image of a Jew first sharing a chair with an Arab and then shoving him off.

Headline: “Friday is a day of general high-alert and prayers will not take place except at the Al-Aqsa Mosque”

“Supreme Shari’ah Judge and [PA] President [Mahmoud Abbas’] advisor on Religious and Islamic Affairs Dr. Mahmoud Al-Habbash called on the international community to act before it will be too late to prevent the deterioration of the situation in the Middle East and the world because of the continuation of the racist Israeli attacks against the Al-Aqsa Mosque (Israel placed metal detectors at its entrances after a terror attack in which 2 Israelis were murdered took place there on July 14, 2017; see note below –Ed.).
The supreme Shari’ah judge emphasized that the responsibility for the Al-Aqsa Mosque is the sole right of Muslims, and that the Israeli interference in Al-Aqsa Mosque affairs constitutes aggression against the religious and political rights of the Muslims.

The Fatah Movement yesterday [July 19, 2017] again emphasized its absolute opposition to the Israeli steps of aggression in occupied Jerusalem and the Al-Aqsa Mosque.
Fatah Revolutionary Council member [and Official Fatah Movement Spokesman] Osama Al-Qawasmi said in a press statement that Fatah will not agree to the implementation of the Israeli plan to empty the Al-Aqsa Mosque and the holy city [of Jerusalem] of its original inhabitants, the members of the Palestinian people.
Al-Qawasmi added: ‘We and all the members of our people that carries out Ribat (i.e., religious conflict/war over land claimed to be Islamic) condemn the illegal steps of the occupation authorities, and also oppose entering the Al-Aqsa Mosque through metal detectors.’”

The minister of religious affairs explained that those who are called ‘the alleged Temple organizations’ have strengthened their calls to invade the Al-Aqsa Mosque plazas (i.e., the Temple Mount) during the Hebrew Passover holiday and sacrifice Passover sacrifices there…
He said that the steps that the occupation government is carrying out have begun to move to the most dangerous stage for the future of the holy city [of Jerusalem] by giving a green light to the settlers and extremist Jews to enter the Al-Aqsa Mosque, to do as they will in its holy plazas and to carry out shameful acts that desecrate the sanctity of the site (See note below –Ed.)…
Ida’is explained that in the shadow of the Arab and Islamic silence and international conspiracy, the Zionist occupation authorities are continuing their plans to erode occupied Jerusalem and take all of the Islamic characteristics from it while using all of the arbitrary means to Judaize the city and expel the original [Arab] Jerusalem residents from it: taking control of the lands and establishing settlements on them, the continuation of the excavations under our blessed Al-Aqsa Mosque… and the many attempts to steal our heritage and culture – and this is not the first time: a Jewish ‘archaeologist’ attempted to steal a stone from the ancient Al-Aqsa Mosque.”

Official PA TV announcer:
“The Judaization of Jerusalem – a concept meaning all of the Israeli occupation’s attempts whose goal is to erase the Arab Islamic identity and change the Arab and Islamic characteristics that represent the true cultural face of the occupied Arab city of Jerusalem, and to stamp it with a new fictional character that is called the Jewish character through the Israeli occupation. History does not recall that any city has been subjected to attempts to erase and change its characteristics, identity, and history through forgery, alteration, manipulation, and false claims in the way that the city of Jerusalem is subject to them."

PA Chairman Mahmoud Abbas’ Advisor on Strategic Affairs Dr. Husam Zomlot: “If you visit the website of the government of Israel, you will clearly see their plan for Jerusalem. This is a legitimization operation that begins with dismantling - dismantling from above [by] landing a blow on the leadership [of the Palestinians in Jerusalem] which they began in the 1980s and 1990s, closing the Orient House (i.e., the PLO headquarters in Jerusalem), and what happened with Martyr (Shahid) Faisal Al-Husseini (i.e., senior Fatah and PLO terror leader in the 1970s). [They also began] dismantling from below, namely [through] unemployment, young men, drugs, etc., and they are doing this morning and night. In other words, the satanic power that is directed against our people in Jerusalem is unprecedented in human history, every morning – millions of dollars, hundreds of millions, are poured in to dismantle and to weaken [it].”

Secretary-General of PA Islamic-Christian Council: Israel plans to turn Jerusalem into a "ghetto" through ethnic "cleansing" 
Source: Ma’an, independent Palestinian news agency, Nov. 30, 2016
Headline: “Dr. Issa: Israel is turning Jerusalem into a ghetto with a Jewish majority”
     Secretary-General of the [PA] Islamic-Christian Council for Jerusalem and the Holy Places Dr. Hanna Issa emphasized that the Israeli violations of all types in occupied Jerusalem reveal that the occupation government does not want to reach a real and just peace with the Palestinians, but rather aspires to realize its ambitions: Judaization, expanding the settlements, and turning the holy city [of Jerusalem] into a ghetto with an Arab ethnic minority and a Jewish majority. This is by means of its policy of expulsion and [ethnic] cleansing against the [Arab] residents of Jerusalem, so that in the long term the city will become the Jewish capital of what is termed the State of ‘Israel.’
He noted that ‘ghetto’ is defined as an area in which – willingly or by compulsion – groups of residents live, who are viewed by most people as [having] a certain ethnic background or [as belonging] to a certain culture or religion. He added that the word originally refers to the neighborhood of the Jews in a city, such as the ghetto in the center of the city of Rome, while in Arab countries the ghetto was called ‘the Jewish quarter.’
Dr. Issa added: ‘“Ghettoes” or “Jewish quarters” were first established in Poland after June 1941 (sic., the first ghetto was established in Venice in 1516 , the first ghetto in Nazi-occupied Poland was established in 1939 ), in the occupied territories of the Soviet Union, so as to isolate the Jewish residents. Most of the ghettoes were established in the poorest neighborhoods or in densely populated Jewish neighborhoods, and many of them were surrounded by walls or fences, or else other means were used to cut the connection with the outside world.’”
Fatah official appreciates UNESCO resolution during "difficult period in which the Al-Aqsa Mosque and Jerusalem are subjected to the dangers of Judaization and ... even ethnic cleansing" 
Source: Official PA daily, Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, Oct. 20, 2016
Headline: “Hamad expressed appreciation for the UNESCO resolution to recognize Jerusalem as an Islamic heritage”
     “Fatah Central Committee member Amal Hamad said that the UN Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) resolution to recognize East Jerusalem as a pure Islamic heritage is a return of the right to its owner, a slap on the cheek of the Israeli occupation, and a refuting of its claims that it has been marketing for many decades through its enormous communications mechanism.
Hamad added that this resolution is very important, particularly in this difficult period in which the Al-Aqsa Mosque and Jerusalem are subjected to the dangers of Judaization and settlement, and even to ethnic cleansing.
She emphasized that the resolution comes in order to limit the arrogance of the occupation, and the continuation of its seizing control over everything that is Palestinian and the theft of Islamic history and culture in the holy city [of Jerusalem].”

UNESCO passed a resolution in Paris on “Occupied Palestine” on Oct. 13, 2016, with 24 countries voting in favor, 6 against, and 24 abstentions. The resolution was later approved by UNESCO's World Heritage Committee on Oct. 26, 2016, in a secret ballot in which ten countries voted in favor of the resolution, two opposed, eight abstained, and one country, Jamaica, was absent.
In the resolution UNESCO refers to the Temple Mount, the holiest site in Judaism, only as “Al-Aqsa Mosque/Al-Haram Al-Sharif,” and presents it only as a “Muslim holy site.” For more details about the resolution, click "full article."

     “Like all of the Palestinian people, he (i.e., Musbah Abu Sbeih, terrorist who shot and murdered 2) did not want to die but desired life and a dignified livelihood in his city and among his family, people, and friends in the Silwan neighborhood of Jerusalem. However, the Israeli ethnic cleansing state and its criminal security forces objected to his choice, and acted by all ways and means to push him toward the option of self-defense by the means that he saw as the appropriate language to respond to their barbarity, reckless behavior, and terror. Martyr (Shahid) Musbah Abu Sbeih, 39, could no longer bear the violations and crimes of the Israeli Security Agency. He rejected the situation of silence, or in other words – the surrender to will of the Israeli hangman. In his interview two days ago [Oct. 8, 2016] with the Ma’an [independent Palestinian news agency] website, in other words 24 hours or less before carrying out his self-sacrificing operation (i.e., terror attack, 2 murdered) at the occupation police station in [the Jerusalem neighborhood of] Sheikh Jarrah, he said: ‘Jerusalem is being widely Judaized at this moment and is being subjected to an unprecedented attack by the occupation authorities.’ ...

PA Mufti: “Israel has “systematic plan to obliterate everything that is Arab and Islamic in Palestine, and to replace it with a false Jewish alternative”

"[PA] Grand Mufti of Jerusalem and the Palestinian Territories and preacher at the blessed Al-Aqsa Mosque Sheikh Muhammad Hussein warned of the repercussions of the grave escalation in the invasions of the Al-Aqsa Mosque and the attacks against it and its visitors and workers…

He said: 'The blessed Al-Aqsa Mosque is being subjected to a strong attack by the occupation authorities as part of the series of [acts] of extremism that they are carrying out in order to harm it through their ongoing attacks against it, while disregarding the international regulations, norms, and laws, and they are acting according to a systematic plan to obliterate everything that is Arab and Islamic in Palestine, and to replace it with a false Jewish alternative.'"

The PA and its leaders consider all of the Temple Mount an integral part of the Al-Aqsa Mosque. Therefore they view any presence of Jews on the mount as an “invasion.” It should be noted that Jews who visit the Temple Mount only enter some sections of the open areas, and do not enter the Al-Aqsa Mosque or the Dome of the Rock.

PA prime minister tells donors that Israel plans to "Judaize the Al-Aqsa Mosque" and pursues "policy of forced expulsion"

     “During his participation two days ago [Sept. 30, 2015] in a meeting with the Ad Hoc Liaison Committee (AHLC) (i.e., international group of donors that coordinates aid to the PA) donors in New York, [PA] Prime Minister Rami Hamdallah demanded of the institutions of the international community, and particularly of the UN, that they fulfill their responsibility to save the two-state solution…
Hamdallah said: ‘The Israeli military escalation against the civilians and the Islamic and Christian holy sites, the plans of the Israeli government to Judaize the Al-Aqsa Mosque and to divide it according to areas and times, the policy of forced expulsion, and the settlers’ crimes against the citizens are dragging the whole region to a bad and bitter end.”

"Division according to areas and times" refers to a proposed law (May 2013) being reviewed in Israeli Parliament that would allow for both Jews and Muslims to pray on the Temple Mount, what the Palestinians call the Al-Aqsa Mosque plaza. The law seeks to designate separate prayer times and areas of the site for Muslims and Jews.
However, Israeli PM Netanyahu has stated on many occasions that the Israeli government has no intention of ‎changing the status quo on the Temple Mount, which means Jews are allowed to enter the Temple Mount, but cannot pray there or engage in any type of worship.
