Fatah spokesman: "Go to the areas of conflict in order to `explode` in front of the occupier and its assistants", calls on all schools in Jerusalem to “go out to the streets”
Headline: “The occupation has turned the Al-Aqsa [Mosque] into a war arena in order to establish the division by areas and times”
"Fatah Central Committee member and Commissioner of International Relations Dr. Nabil Shaath stated... that the continuation of the Israeli occupation's attacks on the Noble Sanctuary (i.e., Jews visiting the Temple Mount) and the Ribat fighters (Murabitin - those carrying out Ribat, religious conflict/war to protect land claimed to be Islamic) will be the spark that sets off the impending explosion, whose onset and scope no one can predict. Likewise, he called on the Palestinian and Arab masses to carry out riots of rage."
The Fatah movement in Jerusalem warned of the repercussions from what’s taking place in the Al-Aqsa Mosque, which heralds an explosion in the region and the dragging of it [the region] into a cycle of violence.
Official Fatah Spokesman in Jerusalem Raafat Alayan called on 'all Palestinian bodies and national and Islamic factions in all regions of the homeland to enlist and go to the areas of conflict in order to 'explode' in front of the occupier and its assistants because of its repeated actions and attacks against the Al-Aqsa [Mosque].' Likewise, he noted that the Fatah movement called on all the schools in Jerusalem, including the Husni Al-Ashhab School, to go out to the streets in order to express their support of the destination of the Prophet Muhammad's Night Journey (i.e., tradition that he flew to Al-Aqsa Mosque), and their opposition to its desecration by the settlers...
The Arab Palestinian Front (a member of the PLO –Ed.) stated… that this crime constitutes contempt for the feelings of Muslims all over the world, and called on the masses of our people to enlist and defend the Al-Aqsa Mosque, and to emphasize to the occupation that its division plans will not be accepted by our people, and that it will continue to defend its holy sites, no matter how many sacrifices it will be forced to pay…
Fatah Central Committee member Sultan Abu Al-Einein warned of the Israeli enemy's attack against the Al-Aqsa Mosque and Jerusalem... Abu Al-Einein stated that the Israeli enemy aims to destroy about half of the Al-Aqsa Mosque after it completely takes it over, and called on the Arab and Islamic nations to intervene immediately on all levels in order to restrain Israel and defend the Al-Aqsa Mosque from what the Jewish extremists are plotting against it.
Abu Al-Einein called on our people everywhere to come to Al-Aqsa and carry out Ribat (religious conflict/war to protect land claimed to be Islamic -Ed.), and not to leave it as easy prey for the plots of the Israeli extremist right to destroy it and build the alleged Temple in its place.
He concluded with a call to Fatah movement members and all of the factions to enlist for Jerusalem and carry out widespread public uprisings, in order to make the enemy pay a price for its actions 'because the hand that will be raised against the Al-Aqsa [Mosque] will be amputated.'"

Note: "Division according to areas and times" refers to a proposed law (May 2013) being reviewed in Israeli Parliament that would allow for both Jews and Muslims to pray on the Temple Mount. The law seeks to implement separate prayer times for Muslims and Jews at the site.
