PA Ministry of Information: Israel behind ISIS leaflets threatening Christians in Jerusalem

Article in response to the distribution of leaflets that threaten the Christians in Jerusalem signed in the name of ISIS.
: “The [PA] Ministry of Information: The sectarian strife is the satanic plant of the occupation”
     “The [PA] Ministry of Information stated that the desperate, dubious attempts to sow the seeds of sectarian strife in occupied Jerusalem - through leaflets which the occupation is behind and attacks carried out by a few incited youths against churches and residential houses in the holy city - are carried out by unenlightened people who accuse others of heresy, deviate from the teachings of Islam and make every effort to cause a rift in the national line, blacken it and tarnish it with hatred.
The Ministry emphasized that these seeds will remain foreign to the land of Palestine that is saturated with the blood of the Martyrs (Shahids) and with the situation and destiny common to our one people, regardless of religion, color or gender. It pointed out that the occupation, which has failed politically and morally, attempts to ignite sectarian strife in the city of peace, the land of Ribat (i.e., religious conflict/war over land claimed to be Islamic).
The Ministry stated that it is more appropriate that those who trade in the name of Jerusalem, and who appoint themselves as Allah’s shadow on the face of the earth, will direct all their power towards the occupation that has defiled the Muslims’ first direction of prayer (i.e., Jerusalem) for 48 years, treats Allah’s servants within it as it pleases, harms it every single day, and strives to destroy it and change it into an alleged Temple.
It stressed that the Palestinian people, Muslims and Christians alike, whose blood is mixed together as they courageously defend our land, will remain immune to the dubious, strife-mongering entities. The Ministry called on all the factions and national institutions, and our people, to stand against the occupation and its agents’ dubious attempts.”
