PLO official: The "Zionist dream" is to build the "alleged Temple" over Al-Aqsa Mosque

Headline: "Qurei warns of the dangers entailed in the occupation's intention to build skyscrapers at the southern entrance to Jerusalem"
"Member of the PLO Executive Committee and head of the Department for Jerusalem Affairs, Ahmed Qurei (Abu Alaa), warned against the authorization issued by the so-called Regional Committee for Planning and Construction in the occupation's municipality in Jerusalem, to put up 12 skyscrapers at the southern entrance to Jerusalem (i.e., Jabel Abu Ghneim/Har Homa). In a press release issued yesterday, Qurei added that Jerusalem is currently subject to a most virulent and unprecedented assault of Judaization… Abu Alaa called on the masses of our people to defend Jerusalem, halt the settlers, and protect their holy city from the plans for Judaization and Israelization that the occupation government continues to implement as part of a systematic plan to Judaize the holy city and imbue it with a Jewish character, in order to realize the Zionist dream – of building a greater Jewish Jerusalem and erecting the alleged Temple on the ruins of the Al-Aqsa Mosque."
