Former PA Chief Religious Justice: Jerusalem must be defended from "Judaizing and Israelizing activities"

“Dr. Tayseer Al-Tamimi, former [PA] Chief Justice of the Religious Court of Palestine and Chairman of the Islamic-Christian Council for Jerusalem and the Holy Places, said that all land (and structures) in the city of Jerusalem are Islamic trusts (Waqfs)… He demanded of the Arab and Islamic nation, including its leaders and its people, to fulfill their obligation in defending Jerusalem and its holy places, which are subject to extensive Judaizing and Israelizing activities through confiscation of its land and extensive establishment of settlements upon it. He also called upon them to support its [Arab] citizens… in order to oppose the plans of the Israeli occupation authorities, which aim to force [Muslims] to leave and to expel them by carrying out acts of suppression and crimes of ethnic cleansing, with flagrant violation of all the laws of monotheistic religions as well as all international laws and covenants.”
