Official PA TV program Palestine This Morning:
Secretary-General of the Islamic-Christian Council for Jerusalem and the Holy Places Hanna Issa: “The decision to partition Palestine, which disowned the greater part of Palestine and gave it to the Jews – to people who had no right to it whatsoever… and yet, this was the UN’s decision. The UN should rethink [its decision] and give Palestine its rights, like the rest of the world.”

Official PA TV report on the opening of the “Second Conference of the National Council for Jerusalem – Eternal Capital of Arab Culture”
Official PA TV reporter: “The conference, which was attended by numerous politicians and clerics, as well as by a group of intellectuals, writers and poets from Jerusalem, issued a warning [regarding] the future of the Holy City, in view of the increase in the attacks of the settler herds on the holy places and their attempts to erase the real Arab history and replace it with a fake Jewish history which has no roots in this land.”
Secretary-General of the Islamic-Christian Council for Jerusalem and the Holy Places Hanna Issa: “We are holding this conference in light of the cultural and educational changes being implemented by the Israeli occupation in Jerusalem, such as the change in the school curriculum, the giving of Jewish – not Arab – street names, the construction of over 9,500 fake graves around the Al-Aqsa Mosque, and the construction of the Strauss Building, higher than the Al-Aqsa Mosque – all of which come as part of [a plan to create] a new culture for Jerusalem.”
Israel’s stance since 1948: “Rid [the ‎land] of the Palestinians wherever they ‎may be” – PA council
Source: Official PA daily, Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, Sept. 17, 2014
‎     “The [PA’s] Islamic-Christian Council for ‎Jerusalem and the Holy Places published ‎a statement yesterday [Sept. 16, 2014]. In ‎its statement, [the Council] stated that the ‎massacres being perpetrated by the ‎occupation state and its executive arms ‎throughout all its successive governments ‎constitute a continuation of the aggressive ‎stance it has adopted since 1948: “Rid [the ‎land] of the Palestinians wherever they ‎may be,” and constitutes a bloody ‎testimony to their ongoing suffering. The ‎Council said this statement was published ‎to mark the 32nd anniversary of the Sabra ‎and Shatila massacre, which was carried ‎out by the occupation army under the ‎leadership of Ariel Sharon and Rafael ‎Eitan at the Sabra and Shatila refugee ‎camps on September 16, 1982. Council ‎Secretary-General Dr. Hanna Issa said:‎ ’... The main aim of the massacres carried ‎out by the occupation is to sow fear in the ‎hearts of the Palestinians and to tighten ‎the noose around their [necks], in order to ‎force them to emigrate.’”‎

Note: Sabra and Shatila are Palestinian ‎refugee camps in Lebanon. In 1982, during ‎the first Lebanon War, Muslim residents of ‎the camps were massacred by Christian ‎Phalangists. The PA has a longstanding ‎policy of falsely accusing Israel of ‎committing the massacre or actively ‎helping to carry it out.‎
Islamic-Christian Jerusalem Council calls on Palestinians to wage Ribat at Al-Aqsa Mosque
Source: Official PA daily, Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, June 4, 2014
     “Secretary-General of the Islamic-Christian Council for Jerusalem and the Holy Places Hanna Issa called on the residents of Jerusalem and the brothers from the Palestinian interior (i.e., Israel) to come to the Al-Aqsa Mosque and wage Ribat (religious conflict/war over land claimed to be Islamic) in it, in light of the aid being provided by the Israeli Security Forces to the Zionist attacks aimed at invading Al-Aqsa …
At the end of the statement, the Secretary-General said that this series of steps and preparations [toward invading the Al-Aqsa Mosque] are being carried out before the [Jewish] holiday of Shavuot, one of the holidays of pilgrimage ordained by the Torah, meaning that masses of Jews are required to perform pilgrimage to and enter the Al-Aqsa Mosque to perform the commandments of the Torah… This reveals, if anything, the extent of the brutal attack being planned to implement their plans of building the alleged Temple on the ruins of the Al-Aqsa Mosque, in full cooperation with the [Israeli] National Security Forces.”

Note: The PA considers any presence of Jews on the Temple Mount an "invasion." However, all visitors are subject to rigorous checks by Israeli security personnel before being granted access to the Temple Mount.
PA official accuses Israel of "Judaization" through "settlement," "expulsion of Palestinians" and "falsification of archeological finds"
Source: Official PA daily, Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, Apr. 16, 2014
     “Palestine Polytechnic University in Hebron, in cooperation with the [PA’s] Islamic-Christian Council for Support of Jerusalem and the Holy Sites, held a conference yesterday [April 15, 2014] under the heading ‘The Current Situation of Jerusalem’…
The Secretary-General of the PA’s Islamic-Christian Council for Jerusalem and the Holy Places Hanna Issa said Jerusalem is an essential and central issue that is being subjected to the most severe forms of Judaization, expulsion, falsification and theft of history. He noted the means of Judaization being used by the occupation: settlement, land takeover, the expulsion of Palestinians and the annulment of their ID cards, the falsification of archeological finds, and additional methods.”

PA council: Israel’s goal is to build “alleged Temple” on ruins of Al-Aqsa Mosque
Source: Official PA daily, Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, Oct. 31, 2013
     “The [PA’s] Islamic-Christian Council for Support of Jerusalem and the Holy Sites warned yesterday [Oct. 31, 2013] about marathon consultations and meetings held by the Israeli government in order to authorize the expansion of the Al-Buraq plaza (i.e., the Western Wall of the Temple Mount plaza) and turn it into a very large synagogue. It said that this plan constitutes a very great and real danger to the Al-Aqsa Mosque in general and the Islamic Al-Buraq plaza in particular. It also noted that Israel continues to desecrate holy sites and harm their sanctity through Judaization and demolition.
The Council’s Secretary-General Hanna Issa said that the Israeli government’s recent meetings about Judaizing the Al-Buraq plaza – after announcing an additional plan to turn an Islamic archeological site near the Al-Aqsa Mosque into a ritual bath to serve the Jewish women who have been invading the Al-Aqsa Mosque recently – are an obvious declaration of harm [aimed at] all sections of the Al-Aqsa Mosque, and [the Israeli government’s] insistence on continuing with plans and initiatives to Judaize the holy city. [This will be done] until the goal is achieved and the Jewish dream is fulfilled: Building the alleged Temple on the ruins of Al-Aqsa, gaining complete control of the occupied city and making it a Jewish city for Jews only.”

Note: In October 2013, Israeli Parliament Member Aliza Lavie announced she will work to make one of the ancient ritual baths, which was discovered near the Temple Mount, functional so that it will serve women ascending the Temple Mount and female residents of the Jewish Quarter [in the Old City of Jerusalem].

Islamic-Christian Council for Jerusalem: Israel is destroying Al-Aqsa Mosque to rebuild "alleged Temple" on its ruins
Source: Official PA daily, Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, Sept. 14, 2012
     "The Islamic-Christian Council for Jerusalem and the Holy Places said yesterday that the most recent excavations beneath the Al-Aqsa Mosque foundations are a final warning [before] the mosque's destruction. The Council declared that Israeli occupation forces plan to damage the blessed mosque's foundation and weaken them, so that they will easily collapse at the first opportunity... The Council's Secretary General, Dr. Hanna Issa, called the digging under the Al-Aqsa foundations a dangerous desecration, a serious attack on the sanctity of the mosque, and a clear statement of the occupation's intentions on the mosque, and its decision to cause its collapse and build the alleged Temple on its ruins."

Israel has "assailed" archaeology in Jerusalem "through destruction and forgery"
Source: Official PA daily, Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, Sept. 11, 2012
     “The Islamic-Christian Council for Jerusalem and the Holy Places warned yesterday that occupation authorities are destroying historical relics from the Umayyad and Abbasid Caliphate periods. It added that the entrance to (the) Silwan (neighborhood), where antiquities have been destroyed recently, is just one of scores of sites being torn asunder by occupation authority bulldozers during excavation and destruction, in order to prove Zionism’s bogus claims on Jerusalem, and implement their schemes to build the alleged Temple on the ruins of Islamic culture. In addition, the Council warned of the occupation authority’s claims that evidence has been uncovered demonstrating a Jewish and Talmudic right to these sites. The Council called on the international community and all institutions concerned with heritage to intercede immediately and show the whole world that Israel’s claims are a sham. The Council called for groups with expertise in the field of antiquities, to come and examine the finds, and thus protect ancient culture and artifacts all of whose remains are now under the threat of Judaization and destruction. Within the same context, the Council denounced Israel’s bogus claims that a large water basin has been discovered west of the Al-Aqsa mosque, dating to the period of the alleged First Temple, and it declared that these claims are fabricated. The Secretary General of the Council, Dr. Hanna Issa, declared that Israel has crossed all red lines in Jerusalem, and has not left a single site or archeological artifact that it has not assailed through destruction and forgery.”
Mufti of Jerusalem: Israel built Hurva synagogue as prelude to building "the alleged Temple"
Source: Official PA daily, Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, Feb. 17, 2011
Headline: “Our people’s religious leaders are calling for help in order to save Jerusalem”
     “The office of the Chief Religious Justice of the Supreme Council for Shari'ah Justice held a press conference yesterday at the governmental information center at the Ministry of Information in Ramallah, in which speakers addressed the Israeli violations against the city of Jerusalem and the sites holy to Islam and to Christianity. [...] Attending the press conference were Chairman of the Supreme Council for Shari'ah Justice, Sheikh Yusuf Iddais; Mufti of Jerusalem and the Palestinian territories, Sheikh Muhammad Hussein; and Deputy Minister of Christian Religious Affairs, Hanna Issa, and representatives of the local, Arab, and world media...
Sheikh Hussein […] noted that in recent years Israel has built 65 synagogues inside the holy city, the latest being the “Hurva” synagogue. The Israelis were optimistic that this would be a prelude to the establishment of the alleged Temple…
Sheikh Hussein noted that several things must be done to stop the Israeli attacks and Judaization, including visiting the holy city, carrying out Ribat within it, and exposing Israeli actions."
