Video posted on the Facebook page of PA Prime Minister Muhammad Shtayyeh

PA Prime Minister Muhammad Shtayyeh: “Jerusalem is restoring the shine to the [Palestinian] cause today (refers to violent Arab riots -Ed.), and through its mosque minarets and church bells it is sounding the call to the prayer of its exaltedness, its stamina, and its glory against those who are vainly attempting to erase its identity, change its landmarks, and falsify its Arab, Islamic, and Christian history. On your behalf I bless our people in Arab Jerusalem who have restored the [Palestinian] cause to the global agenda in order to aid the holy city and Palestine. We strengthen the hands of those carrying out Ribat (i.e., religious conflict over land claimed to be Islamic) within [Jerusalem’s] walls – young, old, children, and women – who are defending it with their eyelashes, their bleeding wounds, and the pain of their suffering…

The [Jewish] calls to murder [Arabs] in Jerusalem express the spirit of crime and hatred in the partisan education in Israel, in the education in the schools, and in their curricula.”
