Official PA daily, Al-Hayat Al-Jadida - July 11, 2010

 
     “Jerusalem is faith, religion, history, present and future. The anniversary of the Journey and the Flight strengthens the truth of this land. Jerusalem, for us, is life, it is the homeland, it is the state. It is not possible for us to relinquish even a single grain of the land of Jerusalem… there is no peace without Jerusalem.”
