“Jerusalem is Arab and the capital of the Palestinian state
The PLO factions and institutions and activists of the Nablus district invite you
To say the Friday prayers
The Friday of rage and defiance
As a sign of emphasizing Jerusalem’s Arabness
And as a sign of rejecting the American decision [recognizing Jerusalem as Israel’s capital]

Date: Dec. 29, 2017
Place: Al-Shuhada Square

So that we will continue the confrontation and escalation”
