Former PA PM Called for Attack
Against Glick's Conference

by Ari Yashar

Last Wednesday morning, hours before Temple Mount activist Yehuda Glick was shot by an Arab would-be assassin at an event at the Begin Heritage Center in Jerusalem that night, former Palestinian Authority (PA) Prime Minister Ahmed Qurei called for "immediate intervention" against the event.

The shocking revelation was made by Palestinian Media Watch (PMW), which translated a statement released in the official PA news agency WAFA last Wednesday morning by Qurei, also known as Abu Alla, who is a senior member of the Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO) Executive Committee.

In his statement, Qurei warned of "extremist biblical plans encouraging settlers and extremist Jews to carry out large-scale invasions of the Al-Aqsa Mosque and calling on the entire Jewish nation to invade the Mosque."

Qurei added Jerusalem is "undergoing one of the most dangerous periods since the beginning of the Israeli occupation," and
called for "immediate intervention in order to protect the 'first direction of prayer' (Jerusalem) and rescue it from the threat of Judaization."
