Jerusalem under assault
"Judaization" of Jerusalem
Jerusalem under assault
In 2009 the Palestinian Authority has initiated an unprecedented campaign of historical revision and anti-Israel libels concerning Jerusalem, the focal point being the erasure and denial of 3,000 years of Jewish history in Jerusalem.

In addition, the PA disseminates the libel that Israel is acting both to expel Arabs from Jerusalem and to destroy the Al-Aqsa Mosque. The Jerusalem libels are designed to evoke religious hatred by portraying Israel and the Jews as a threat to Arabs and Islam.

This section documents the recent intensification of the Palestinian Authority's campaign of distortion, historical revision and hate incitement surrounding Jerusalem.

"Judaization" of Jerusalem
Since Jews are said to have no connection to Jerusalem, nor any right to live in the city, any Israeli action in Jerusalem is defined as "Judaization" and an attempt to erase the city's supposedly authentic Islamic Arab character. The PA has launched an incendiary libel campaign which presents as fact the lie that Israel is acting to destroy the Al-Aqsa Mosque and to expel Arabs from the city. The goal of this PA alarmist campaign is to promote fear and hatred of Jews and Israelis.

[It should be noted that the PA allegation that Israel is pursuing a policy of ridding Jerusalem of its Arab inhabitants is blatantly untrue. In fact, according to May 2009 statistics released by the Jerusalem Center for Israel Studies, since Israel’s liberation of all of Jerusalem in the 1967 Six Day War, Jerusalem's Jewish population has increased by 186%, with the Arab population of east Jerusalem growing by 291%, almost twice the growth rate of the Jewish population.]

The council noted that this event pounds on the walls of Jerusalem, even as it is still under the fire of the oppressive occupation and suffering from ruin, expulsion, and destruction, while 'Israel' continues Judaizing the holy city and while the place of the Ascent to Heaven of Allah's Messenger Muhammad (i.e., the Al-Aqsa Mosque) is subjected to excavations and tunnels are being dug under it in preparation for its destruction."

She emphasized that the occupation's policy will not frighten the Palestinian people, and that the call to prayer will continue to be heard in occupied Jerusalem."

On Nov. 13, 2016, a bill to ban religious institutions from broadcasting over loudspeakers was approved for a preliminary reading in the Israeli Parliament. The bill is intended to prevent noise pollution. This bill is referred to by many as the "Muezzin Law," although it does not refer to any specific religion.
Other countries have already approved or attempted legislation for regulating the use of loudspeakers in mosques in order to limit noise pollution. These include India, Nigeria, Saudi Arabia, Egypt, Jordan, Syria, Turkey, Bahrain, the United Emirates, the Netherlands, Germany, Switzerland, France, the UK, Austria, Norway, and Belgium, and the US. The PA has also passed legislation regarding the use of loudspeakers in mosques in order to reduce noise pollution.

Official PA TV host: “The Palestinian heritage refuses to undergo Judaization, despite the terror of the occupation that attempts to harm our heritage and Judaize it. Palestine, with its people, its land, its history, its trees, and everything within it – it is the faithful protector of our heritage, and it is waging a daily struggle against the occupation, at a time when Israel does not cease its acts of forgery and robbery against the Muslim and Christian holy sites and the antiquities sites - which are the required basis for heritage and national culture - and steals our Canaanite heritage.”

Israeli affairs expert Fayez Abbas: "Yesterday [Oct. 26, 2016] they published something interesting, that they found among antiquities thieves in the Hebron area a papyrus parchment on which is written in ancient Hebrew script 'Yerushalma' (i.e., Jerusalem), in other words Al-Quds (i.e., Jerusalem). This is the first time in the history of Israel that they find – according to their claims – a historical artifact that mentions Al-Quds (sic., it is the earliest non-biblical source to mention Jerusalem in Hebrew script).'
Official PA TV host: "Only yesterday!"
Fayez Abbas: "Yesterday, and [Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin] Netanyahu personally went [to the media] with a picture of it and said – and all that was written [on the parchment] has disappeared except for this sentence: 'Dates, date wine, from the [Jordan] Valley region to Al-Quds' (sic., the parchment reads: “From the king’s maidservant, from Na’arata, jars of wine, to Jerusalem”)"
Host: "Even the photographers related to this matter and they are laughing at Netanyahu's lie."
Fayez Abbas: "What is this talk? And it was 700 BCE, what is this talk?"
Host: "And the amazing coincidence in timing."
Fayez Abbas: "It is a message to UNESCO (United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization)! He [Netanyahu] is free [to do that], but he is a liar. There is no disagreement on that. There is no disagreement between me and you that he is a liar."

Hamad added that this resolution is very important, particularly in this difficult period in which the Al-Aqsa Mosque and Jerusalem are subjected to the dangers of Judaization and settlement, and even to ethnic cleansing.
She emphasized that the resolution comes in order to limit the arrogance of the occupation, and the continuation of its seizing control over everything that is Palestinian and the theft of Islamic history and culture in the holy city [of Jerusalem].”

     “Fatah spokesman Fayiz Abu Aita emphasized that the occupation government alone bears responsibility for the consequences of the Palestinian responses. He emphasized that the Israeli government’s sponsorship of terror, settlement, harming the holy city [of Jerusalem], Judaization, Israelization, and all of these steps, will lead to additional Palestinian responses.
Abu Aita’s statements came in response to the Jerusalem operation (i.e., terror attack, 2 murdered). He said: ‘[Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin] Netanyahu must understand that security and stability will not be achieved until the legitimate rights of our people are achieved, and primarily Jerusalem as the capital of the Palestinian state.’ Abu Aita added that Israel’s policy of murder and summary executions, the expropriation of land for settlements, and the harming of the holy sites will not dissuade our people from defending legitimate rights.”

Abu Sbeih, who held Israeli residency status, began his shooting spree at the Ammunition Hill light rail stop and continued to the Shimon Hatzadik neighborhood. He was killed in an exchange of fire with Israeli border police officers during the attack. On the morning of the attack, Abu Sbeih was due to turn himself in to begin a 4 month jail sentence, after being convicted in January 2015 on numerous counts of inciting to terror and supporting a terror organization. On his Facebook page, Abu Sbeih praised terror groups including Hamas as well as terrorists who carried out attacks and actively called for attacks against Israelis.

However, the Israeli ethnic cleansing state and its criminal security forces objected to his choice, and acted by all ways and means to push him toward the option of self-defense by the means that he saw as the appropriate language to respond to their barbarity, reckless behavior, and terror. Martyr (Shahid) Musbah Abu Sbeih, 39, could no longer bear the violations and crimes of the Israeli Security Agency. He rejected the situation of silence, or in other words – the surrender to will of the Israeli hangman.

Likewise he called on the Palestinian people to unite around the Al-Aqsa Mosque and to come to it so that it will remain packed full of Muslims throughout the days and years, and in order to fend off the calls of the settler groups that are acting to Judaize the Al-Aqsa Mosque and Jerusalem.”

On Sept. 13, 2016, the Jerusalem District Court issued a decision allowing Jews to pray in the Muslim Quarter of the Old City of Jerusalem.

Likewise, the council noted that this desecration of the holy sites is not the first violation, but rather one of the systematic Judaization steps [being taken against] the [Al-Aqsa] Mosque.”

The PA and its leaders consider all of the Temple Mount an integral part of the Al-Aqsa Mosque. Therefore they view any presence of Jews on the mount as an “invasion.” It should be noted that Jews who visit the Temple Mount only enter some sections of the open areas, and do not enter the Al-Aqsa Mosque or the Dome of the Rock.

"Alleged Temple organizations" refer to religious Jewish movements including the Temple Mount Heritage Foundation, The Initiative for Jewish Freedom on the Temple Mount and Students for the Temple Mount, which spread awareness of the importance of the Temple Mount in Judaism and encourage people to visit the site. Preceding the Purim holiday, religious websites such as the Temple Mount News website [Feb. 23, 2015] announced a "special visit" to the Temple Mount, which was expected to draw "masses of Jews."

     “A week ago was the 47th anniversary of the crime of the arson of the Al-Aqsa Mosque and Saladin [Al-Ayyubi’s] pulpit, in what appeared to be a situation of troubling silence, broken only by a small number of notices repeated regularly throughout recent years… It can be said that the Jewish logic, which is full of historical grudges and religious myths, through this arson opened a wider door for the perpetration of ancient Zionist plots. Plots whose goal is to determine the future of Jerusalem by creating finalized facts and a new reality, that can defend themselves by themselves in any future negotiation regarding the fate of Jerusalem and the Palestinian areas…
The extremist Zionist groups, those who held the hand of the same Jewish settler (sic) named Michael Rohan when he perpetrated this intentional fire, are those who today hold the reins of government in Israel, and they are those who carry out the operation of Judaizing Jerusalem for all to see, and call with unprecedented determination to divide the Al-Aqsa Mosque without encountering any opposition or anyone who will deter them... In fact, these evil Israeli goals are no longer only intentions nested in the heart of small groups of ultra-extremists and settlers, but rather have become an official work plan being implemented in the field, and in particular under the Al-Aqsa Mosque plaza (i.e., the Temple Mount), which currently is subject to imminent collapse due to a series of underground tunnels and passageways.”
