Fatah calls for “day of rage” tomorrow

by Itamar Marcus and Nan Jacques Zilberdik

Mahmoud Abbas’ Fatah organization has declared tomorrow, Friday, a “day of rage” and called on the Palestinian “fighters” to defend Al-Aqsa. Palestinian rioters and terrorists have been active in recent weeks in the Jerusalem area, killing two, injuring many others, and causing millions of dollars in damage.

The following is the announcement by Fatah that was reported by the official PA news agency:
“Fatah calls to its fighters and to the masses of the Palestinian people to aid the Al-Aqsa Mosque and occupied Jerusalem.
In an announcement that was published by the Fatah Mobilization and Organization Commission today, the movement called to set tomorrow as a day of rage throughout the homeland and in countries which are home to refugees, to express the Palestinian people’s opposition to any attack on the holy places and foremost among them the Al-Aqsa Mosque... And to consider desecration of Al-Aqsa as a declaration of a religious war against the Palestinian people and the Arab Islamic nations.”

Note: On Oct. 29, 2014, the day before Fatah announced the "day of rage," Mutaz Hijazi, an Islamic Jihad member and released prisoner, attempted to assassinate Rabbi Yehuda Glick, who was seriously wounded in the shooting attack.
