Headline: "Al-Husseini met with a delegation"
"[PA] Minister of Jerusalem Affairs Adnan Al-Husseini met yesterday [Jan. 17, 2016] with a delegation of activists and [representatives of] institutions from the Qalandiya refugee camp… He reviewed the difficult situation affecting the occupied capital, and the arbitrary Israeli actions against the residents of Jerusalem and the Islamic and Christian holy sites, and especially against the Al-Aqsa Mosque. Al-Husseini called… to continue to protect the national enterprise, to join the masses, and to protect the holy sites and ward off the dangers hanging over them. Al-Husseini emphasized that the leadership… adheres to the sacred right of all refugees to return to the lands from which they were exiled… Muhammad Abu Habseh, father of Martyr (Shahid) Anan Abu Habseh (i.e., terrorist who killed one), said that Palestine's Martyrs live with their Lord. He noted that they would not have made their sacrifices had they not believed in the inalienable right of the Palestinian people to their homeland, and the need to defeat the occupation and purify the Christian and Islamic holy sites from their impurity, and especially the Al-Aqsa Mosque."
