Jerusalem under assault
Jerusalem is "land of Ribat" - holy Islamic land
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.
[Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, official PA daily, Feb 24, 2009]
Jerusalem is "land of Ribat" - holy Islamic land
The Palestinian Authority has adopted the Hamas ideology of framing the conflict with Israel as a religious war for Allah. Jerusalem and all of Israel are defined as "Ribat" - holy Islamic land - whose "liberation" and defense are said to be mandatory under Islamic law. The significance of the PA defining the conflict as “Ribat” is clear when reading how a PA schoolbook defines “Ribat":

"The Ribat for Allah is one of the actions related to Jihad ...The persistence of Palestine's people on their land in these days [i.e., Israel], and their persistence against the damage and the aggression they endure - is one of the greatest of the Ribat [fighting for Islamic land], and they are worthy of a great reward from Allah.... they are found in Ribat until Resurrection." [Islamic Education, grade 12, p. 86-87]

Since 2008, Palestinian leaders have frequently defined all of Israel, and particularly Jerusalem, as land of "Ribat" - i.e., areas which Muslims have a religious obligation to defend and liberate for Islam. In the past, it was specifically Hamas that defined the conflict with Israel as a religious war. Now, the PA - Fatah leadership regularly presents its war against Israel as a religious battle for Islam.
PA Minister of Jerusalem Affairs calls on Palestinians to carry out Ribat at the Al-Aqsa Mosque, to prevent "Jewish groups" from "invad[ing]" the Mosque on the Jewish day of mourning

Headline: “Al-Husseini:  "[...] The Al-Aqsa Mosque and employees are attacked savagely”
       “[PA] Minister of Jerusalem Affairs Adnan Al-Husseini… called on the city’s people to show solidarity and to help the Al-Aqsa Mosque’s [Jordanian Waqf] guards and employees, particularly at this stage in which they are subjected to arrest and distancing [from the mosque by the occupation]. Likewise, he called to come and carry out Ribat (i.e., religious conflict/war over land claimed to be Islamic) at the Al-Aqsa Mosque plazas in the coming days, particularly in light of the calls of the Jewish groups to invade the Al-Aqsa Mosque on the anniversary of what is called the destruction of the Temple (i.e., Tisha B’Av).”

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.

Tisha B’Av is a Jewish day of mourning commemorating the destruction of the First and Second Temples in Jerusalem (586 BCE and 70 CE) and the forced exile of most of the Jewish people from the land of Israel.

Official PA TV host: “Despite the fact that the Al-Aqsa Mosque’s place in the hearts of Jerusalem’s [Arab] residents was the first source of inspiration for the thought of Ribat, it has grown stronger due to the Masatib Al-Alam [project] that has drawn many women and men who wished to receive lessons in religious law and memorization of the Quran in the [Al-Aqsa] Mosque plaza. Women who challenge the occupation using their voices to call over and over ‘Allah is great!’ along with slogans demanding their basic rights to freedom of worship and prayer at the Al-Aqsa Mosque. They believe that Ribat at the Al-Aqsa Mosque is part of the Palestinian women’s role against the occupation.
The Murabitat phenomenon expresses Palestinian society’s awareness of what the occupation intends to do at the Al-Aqsa Mosque. There was and still is a critical role [for the Murabitat] in thwarting the dozens of invasion and defilement attempts by the herds of settlers, [and the] plans to take over the [Al-Aqsa] Mosque and build the alleged Temple in its place.”

Ahmad Abu Al-Rub, Ahmad Zakarneh and Muhammad Kmeil - Three Palestinian terrorists in their early 20's who shot and stabbed two Israeli police officers at the Damascus Gate in Jerusalem on Feb. 3, 2016. One of the officers, 19-year-old Hadar Cohen, was fatally wounded and died of her wounds. The second officer was seriously wounded. The terrorists, who attacked the policewomen after they were asked for identification, were carrying machine guns, knives, and pipe bombs, leading the police to suspect they were planning a mass attack against civilians. The terrorists were shot and killed at the scene by Israeli police.

Assistant Secretary of Fatah in Jerusalem Shadi Mattour: “We say to the government of Israel, instead of seeking solutions to deter [Palestinian] residents of Jerusalem defending their mosque, it [the Israeli government] needs to think about what caused this situation. It needs to think about why Martyr (Shahid) Muhannad Halabi (i.e., terrorist who stabbed two to death) wrote on his [Facebook] page when he saw a Jerusalem woman being dragged away by the occupation forces. He came [to carry out the operation (i.e., stabbing attack)] in order to protect that woman, he came to help the Al-Aqsa Mosque… For the residents of Jerusalem the Al-Aqsa Mosque is an article of faith. The Israelis need to stay away from the Al-Aqsa Mosque plaza. The sights that the Palestinians see, what is happening to the Murabitin (those carrying out Ribat, religious conflict/war to protect land claimed to be Islamic) in the Al-Aqsa Mosque, and to our people, inflame the emotions of our Palestinian people. The Israelis are mistaken when they say that the problem is 50 Murabitin at the Al-Aqsa Mosque. At the moment of truth, all the Palestinian people will be Murabitin. Muhannad Halabi, the hero Martyr, was not one of the Murabitin, and despite this he broke through all the barriers and all their police, and came to carry out an operation for the Al-Aqsa Mosque.”
