PA daily: Israel is working to "Judaize" the Old City of Jerusalem, expel its 40,000 residents, and destroy Al-Aqsa Mosque

Headline: "When they expropriate the sky in the Old City [of Jerusalem] there will be excavations under it and synagogues and places of pilgrimage above it"
     "The plan to Judaize the Old City [of Jerusalem] is a comprehensive plan, not partial. In order to change the facts on the ground, government institutions are themselves working on this, and not local organizations. They continue to work day and night underground, without anyone seeing them. However, this does not mean that the residents of the Old City do not feel tremors in the earth, and that the cracking of homes and the collapse of some of them, that have even reached Silwan, south of the Al-Aqsa Mosque, did not constitute proof of these excavations. This is without even speaking about a number of trees that have fallen in the Al-Aqsa Mosque plaza and the collapse of some of the ground of the Al-Buraq Wall (i.e., the Western Wall) a number of days ago.
The occupation government is striving to carry out all of these steps as preparation for the destruction of the Al-Aqsa Mosque, and as part of its intensive efforts to change the site and turn it from a place of worship for Muslims into Solomon's alleged Temple. On this basis, Israel is acting to Judaize:
1. The Dome of the Rock, which is the alleged Holy of Holies and the place of the Ark mentioned in the Ten Commandments (sic., the Ten Commandments do not mention the Ark) of Moses, peace be upon him.
2. The Marwan Mosque (i.e., King Solomon's Stables), which Israel describes as the royal castle.
3. The Al-Aqsa Mosque, which is the alleged Temple, and thus it (i.e., Israel) will take over the approximately 140 dunams (approximately 35.6 acres -Ed.) of the Al-Aqsa Mosque.
For this purpose, the occupation government strives to empty the Old City of its residents, who number 40,000 people, and to leave only a number of stores, in order to turn it into a tourist site to which Arabs will come, as they visit Acre and Haifa."
