PA Minister of Religion: Israeli plan to Judaize Jerusalem is getting worse

PA TV program Religion and the World:
PA TV host: “Has anything changed in the [past] 80 years?”
PA Minister of Religious Affairs, Mahmoud Al-Habbash: “On the contrary, what [Mufti] Haj Amin Al-Husseini warned of has become reality. There is a planned action that is getting worse, to Judaize Jerusalem and take it out of [both] its human and cultural historical course and place it in a distorted and false history by claiming that it is an Israeli city and a Jewish city etc. Jerusalem was and will remain the city of all believers. Its Arab and Muslim identity endures, is rooted and is prominent throughout history and no one can change it.”

Note: Haj Amin Al-Husseini - Grand Mufti of Jerusalem at the time of the British mandate, and spiritual and a political leader of the local Arab population. He strongly opposed Zionism and was behind riots and attacks on Jews. During World War II he actively collaborated with Nazi Germany, meeting Adolf Hitler personally and recruiting Muslims for the Nazi army.
