Fatah member praises Intifadas, including the new “Jerusalem Intifada”

     “Fatah Revolutionary Council member Muhammad Jodeh Al-Nahal ‘Abu Jodeh’ said that the Stone Intifada (i.e., the first Palestinian wave of violence against Israel, 1987-1993) that began in 1987 is still alive in the heart of the Palestinian people, which is continuously inspired by the spirit of this Intifada in its war against the occupation. On his official Facebook page, Al-Nahal added that the 27th anniversary of the outbreak of this blessed Intifada comes at a time when our people is experiencing the first signs of a new Intifada, because of the actions of the occupation which kills, destroys, Judaizes Jerusalem and builds settlements, thereby causing the spirit of this Intifada to be constantly present.
Al-Nahal noted that the Jerusalem Intifada (i.e., riots and murderous terror attacks carried out mainly in Jerusalem during October-November 2014) which our young people are carrying out in the Holy City comes in exactly the same context as the first Intifada, which resorted to stone [throwing] and brought fear on the occupation and aggression state, which began arresting thousands of stone children in Jerusalem and gave them severe sentences. Al-Nahal emphasized that the spirit of struggle was always present in the memory of the Palestinian people from the Al-Buraq Intifada in 1929 (i.e., the 1929 Palestine Riots) through the 1936 Intifada (i.e., The 1936 Arab Revolt), the Stone Intifada and the Al-Aqsa Intifada (i.e., PA terror campaign 2000-2005), to the Jerusalem Intifada that is raging today in order to defend the Al-Aqsa Mosque and the Islamic and Christian holy places.”

Note: The "Jerusalem intifada" referred to in the article is a reference to a period of high tensions in Jerusalem in October and November 2014 that included riots in Palestinian areas and numerous terror attacks against Israelis. On Oct. 22 and Nov. 5, 2014, two separate terror attacks took place in which ‎Palestinians ‎drove their cars into pedestrians in Jerusalem, killing 4 and injuring dozens. In addition, on Oct. 29, 2014, Islamic Jihad member Mutaz Hijazi attempted to assassinate Rabbi Yehuda Glick, an activist working to assure rights for Jews to visit and pray on the Temple Mount. On Nov. 18, two Palestinian terrorists entered a synagogue in Jerusalem and attacked worshippers with guns, knives, and axes, killing 4 worshippers and a police officer.
