Abbas: Israel seeks to destroy Al-Aqsa Mosque and take over Muslim and Christian holy sites

Palestinian Authority Chairman Mahmoud Abbas:
“[Israel’s actions in Jerusalem] ultimately aim to achieve dark goals: Destroy the Al-Aqsa Mosque and build the alleged Temple... take over the Muslim and Christian holy sites, and destroy its institutions in order to empty it, uproot its residents, and continue its occupation and Judaization…
All of Israel’s actions in Jerusalem and the Al-Aqsa Mosque... will not negate the fact that the city, its Al-Aqsa [Mosque], its Dome of the Rock and its churches are Arab – Islamic and Christian... and will not produce a [Jewish] right based and illusions and legends… There will be no peace, security, or stability unless the occupation [Israel], its settlements and settlers will be evacuated from our holy city and the eternal capital of our state."
