PA daily: Israel's goodwill gesture for Ramadan is really "scheme" to profit by "the enemies of Allah"

Op-ed by Taleb Al-Silwadi, columnist for official PA daily
Headline
: "Al-Aqsa is calling you"
"O, people of the fast and people of the Quran: Palestine is the cradle of civilization, mother of emissaries, and center of prophecy. It was the first direction of prayer (i.e., Jerusalem) for the Muslims, from which the true Prophet [Muhammad] ascended to Heaven, and where resurrection of the dead will begin. On its pure land, stands the blessed Al-Aqsa Mosque, and the true Prophet prayed, leading the emissary prophets. It [Palestine] has been given great honor by the Lord of the Worlds, but when the corruptors defiled it, caused devastating corruption (i.e., term used about Jews in the Quran), desecrated its honor and sanctity, and killed, attacked, and spilled pure blood, it needed us to stand by its side...
In the month of Ramadan, when our footsteps crave the mosques, let us come to the blessed Al-Aqsa Mosque every day, with all our strength, if we are able to do so -for the enemies of Allah from among the Children of Zion wish, through their cunning schemes, to open new channels for their economy, by opening the gates of Jerusalem (as a goodwill gesture in honor of the Ramadan, Israel wanted to allow residents of the West Bank to enter Jerusalem -Ed.). However, we are those who support the economy of our people and its homeland, and this is an opportunity for us to pray in the blessed Al-Aqsa Mosque."
