Fatah spokesman: Indonesian religious scholars “sold their souls to Satan” because they participated in conference in Jerusalem, Israel is a "thieving entity"

Headline: “Fatah: The participation of a delegation of religious scholars from Indonesia in a conference in Jerusalem constitutes a crime against the city, the members of our people, and Muslims throughout the world”
     “The Fatah Movement said that the participation of a delegation of Indonesian religious scholars in the Jewish-American Relations Conference (i.e., the American Jewish Committee Global Forum) that will be held in occupied Jerusalem is a crime against Jerusalem, against the Palestinian people, and against Muslims throughout the world, and constitutes standing alongside the criminal Israeli occupier against our fighting and resolute people.
Official Fatah Spokesman Osama Al-Qawasmi said in a press statement that the participation of Secretary-General of the [Nahdlatul Ulama] Association Yahya Staquf in this conference in occupied Jerusalem constitutes a betrayal of the religion, the Al-Aqsa Mosque, the Church of the Holy Sepulchre, the Palestinian people, and the Arab and Islamic nations. Al-Qawasmi demanded that the senior Indonesian officials and the Indonesian people, which is honorable and supports the Palestinian cause, hold accountable those who have sold their souls to Satan and agreed to serve as pawns in the hands of the Zionists and Israelis.”

    “In another statement yesterday [June 11, 2018], the [PA] Ministry [of Foreign Affairs and Expatriates] condemned the participation of a delegation of Indonesian religious scholars… in the American Jewish Committee (AJC) Global Forum conference that is taking place in Jerusalem between June 10 and June 13, 2018… It emphasized that the participation in these activities constitutes a blow to Palestine and to Jerusalem, and a heavy blow to Indonesia, as it is the largest Islamic state (i.e., the state with the largest Islamic population) in the world… The ministry emphasized: ‘Our region was and will always remain a beacon of thought and culture. It did not know any form of violence on ethnic and religious grounds until the thieving entity was established on the land and ruins of the Palestinian people.’”
