Fatah official calls for “an extensive intifada everywhere against the criminal and racist Israeli enemy”

Headline: “Palestine supports its capital”



“A procession went out in Ramallah at the call of the [national] forces, which passed through the city’s streets to emphasize standing alongside the [Palestinian] residents of Jerusalem intheir battle against the Israeli occupation (refers to ongoing Arab riots in Jerusalem -Ed.)…

In a speech on behalf of the forces, Fatah leadership member [and Chairman of the PA-funded Prisoners’ Club] Qadura Fares said that this procession constitutes a starting point for a series of national activities that will include all the refugee camps, villages, and cities in order to constitute an extensive intifada everywhere against the criminal and racist Israeli enemy

He noted that the Zionist enemy thinks that by using its army, police, and settler herds it can break our Palestinian people’s willpower by breaking the willpower of the Jerusalem residents, who have recorded acts of heroism in recent days during which they confronted the occupation from point-blank range to defend the first direction of [Muslim] prayer, the third holiest mosque, the destination of Prophet Muhammad’s Night Journey, and the birthplace of Jesus (sic., aside from Jesus’ birthplace all of these refer to the Al-Aqsa Mosque. Jesus was not born in Jerusalem but in Bethlehem).

He explained that Jerusalem was the main reason for the outbreak of the Al-Aqsa Intifada (i.e., PA terror campaign 2000-2005, more than 1,100 Israelis murdered), and it [an intifada] needs to break out for its sake against the Israeli enemy, and he said: ‘There needs to be wave after wave until the defeat of the racist occupation.’
