PA daily: Church of Holy Sepulchre is sister of Al-Aqsa Mosque, warns of 'Judaization'

Excerpt of an op-ed by Muwaffaq Matar, Fatah Revolutionary Council member and regular columnist for the official PA daily

Headline: “This is Jerusalem… ‘occupation’ of the homes of Allah’s city”

“The Palestinians in Jerusalem are at this time entering the decisive and last-quarter battle, in whose final moment the fate of Jerusalem on the ground will be decided: Will its Palestinian residents keep it Arab and preserve its unique identity among the cities of the world, remain loyal to the trust, and defend the Christian and Islamic holy sites regardless of how many sacrifices there will be… or will the Judaization project and the erasing of its Palestinian Arab identity continue, while the Israeli racist occupation state’s government starts the countdown to dividing the Al-Aqsa Mosque by force as a primary goal, before extending the Judaization to all of the holy sites, including the Church of the Holy Sepulchre, the sister of the Al-Aqsa Mosque. This will not happen because the only condition for this is the submission of the Palestinians in general and the Jerusalem residents in particular, and this is something that the owners of the racist colonialist Zionist project cannot do, even if the sun were to rise in the west.”
