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.

This cartoon with the caption "Judaization of Jerusalem" shows, from right to left, a sinister-looking Jew first sharing the chair with an Arab and then shoving him off.

"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.]

Palestinian leaders routinely claim that Israel’s attempts to change the status quo of the Temple Mount and al-Aqsa Mosque are part of a larger plan of Judaization of Jerusalem – Ed.

“Fatah Movement Commissioner of Information, Culture, [and Indoctrination] [and Fatah Central Committee member] Nasser Al-Qidwa said that occupied Jerusalem is the symbol of the Palestinian cause and what is happening in it is unacceptable, and Israel must retract all of its steps and return the situation to the way it was before July 14, [2017]…
He noted that despite the occupation removing the metal detectors (placed at the entrances to the Temple Mount following an attack there on July 14, 2017, in which 2 Israelis were murdered; see note below. Israel decided to remove them on July 24, 2017 –Ed.), it placed surveillance cameras and continues the closure of seven of the gates of the Jerusalem Noble Sanctuary (i.e., the Temple Mount).”

Excerpt of an editorial by the official PA daily

     “After an expanded meeting of the Palestinian leadership, which was held two days ago [July 21, 2017] and was dedicated to a discussion on the ways of dealing with the occupation’s brutal attack against Jerusalem and the plans to Judaize the blessed Al-Aqsa Mosque, [PA] President Mahmoud Abbas gave a speech directed to the Palestinian people. In his speech, he called on all the national activity factions – and particularly on Hamas – to rise above our disagreements, give preference to the national matter over matters connected to the factions, and act for the unity of our people… President Mahmoud Abbas’ call is the call of Jerusalem and the Al-Aqsa Mosque. This is a crucial historical moment: Either there will be national unity to support Jerusalem and the Al-Aqsa Mosque, or there will be a more brutal occupation and more dangerous plans. But Palestine will not agree to anything other than unity. It will not agree to a continuation of the occupation, and will not agree that its holy sites be harmed or undergo Judaization.”

"The Islamic sources of authority in Jerusalem… called on residents of Jerusalem and Palestine to resist all of the Israeli occupation's cruel steps, which are being expressed by a change in the historical status quo, and include placing metal detectors at the Al-Aqsa Mosque gates. They called not to use [the metal detectors] under any circumstances and not to enter the Al-Aqsa Mosque through them.
In a joint statement, Islamic sources of authority yesterday [July 17, 2017] called on citizens to go up to the blessed Al-Aqsa Mosque to pray and serve Allah. They said: 'If they continue to require entry to the Al-Aqsa Mosque by passing through metal detectors, we call on the members of our people to pray and devote themselves to serving Allah before the gates of the Al-Aqsa Mosque, in the streets of Jerusalem, and its alleys.'
[PA] Minister of Religious Affairs Sheikh Yusuf Ida’is called on citizens to go up to the Al-Aqsa Mosque, to pray at the places they can reach, and to support the members of our people in Jerusalem, who are living these days under the swords of the right-wing [Israeli] government…
Ida'is also issued instructions to focus on the occupation government’s unprecedented attacks and violations against the Al-Aqsa Mosque during the next Friday sermon…

"PLO Executive Committee member and Democratic Front for the Liberation of Palestine (DFLP) political bureau member Tayseer Khaled called on the Arab and Islamic governments to act to curb the dangers threatening Jerusalem and the Al-Aqsa Mosque now when it is clear that the government of Israel is using the events of last Friday in the area of the mosque and its plazas (i.e., terror attack on July 14, 2017, 2 Israelis were murdered; see note below –Ed.) as an opening to change the status quo step by step, from letting worshippers pass through metal detectors, to the division of one of the holiest sites in the eyes of Arabs and Muslims according to areas and times (i.e., separate prayer times for Muslims and Jews).
He noted that what is happening at this time at the Al-Aqsa Mosque is much more dangerous than what has happened through all the years of the occupation, including the fire that broke out at the mosque after Jewish extremist Dennis Michael (sic., Michael Dennis Rohan, an Australian Christian; see note below) ignited a fire in its western wing on Aug. 21, 1969."

They are the beginning of the endless cycle of violence, and they are the factor that necessarily leads to Palestinians being murdered over and over in cold blood, with no consideration for the sanctity of the site and the sanctity of life...’”

"The [PA] Ministry of Foreign Affairs condemned the occupation's Judaization plan to build a new level under the Al-Buraq (i.e., the Western Wall of the Temple Mount) plaza at the blessed Al-Aqsa Mosque…
This was stated following the exposé of the Hebrew weekly Jerusalem, according to which Jerusalem occupation Mayor [Nir Barkat], during a tour with members of the ruling Likud party, announced the municipality’s intention to build an additional level at the Al-Buraq plaza (apparently referring to plan for a tunnel under the Western Wall plaza to improve handicapped accessibility - the source noted here does not exist and these statements could not be found in Israeli newspapers -Ed.) and presented a draft of the aforementioned plan, as part of the occupation’s many plans to deepen the Judaization operations at the Al-Buraq plaza and tunnel…
The ministry again emphasized that occupied East Jerusalem is an inseparable part of the Palestinian territories that were occupied in 1967. It also emphasized that the excavations, Judaization operations, and the settlements and attempts to change the holy characteristics of the city [of Jerusalem] and its holy sites that are being carried out by the occupation authorities are invalid and illegal according to international law and the agreements that have been signed. This requires that all of the countries and the relevant UN organizations cease their silence and act seriously and effectively to stop the Israeli operations and violations and to implement and defend the relevant UN resolutions."
