This report appeared as the lead article on the first page of the official PA daily Al-Hayat Al-Jadida on Sept. 17, 2015:
Headline: "The President: 'We will protect Jerusalem and will not allow them to defile the Al-Aqsa [Mosque] and the Church of the Holy Sepulchre with their filthy feet'" 
     
 "The President of the State of Palestine Mahmoud Abbas stated: 'We are in Jerusalem, and we will remain in it. We will protect the places holy to Christianity and Islam, and will not leave our city. We will continue to cling to every inch of its land.' Today, when he [Abbas] met with activists from occupied Jerusalem in the presidential compound in Ramallah, his honor added: 'There is no door that we won't knock on to make the voice of Jerusalem be heard. I am certain that no harm will befall Jerusalem, though the occupation is waging a brutal war against it. However, we will continue to protect it in every situation. We are speaking with everyone, and everyone is asking what we are doing to make the voice of Jerusalem heard.'
His honor [Abbas] saluted the Murabitin (those carrying out Ribat, religious conflict/war to protect land claimed to be Islamic) and stated: 'Every drop of blood that has been spilled in Jerusalem is holy blood as long as it was for Allah. Every Martyr (Shahid) will reach Paradise, and everyone wounded will be rewarded, Allah willing.'
Likewise, his honor [Abbas] emphasized that the State of Palestine will not exist without Jerusalem, and that the capital of the Palestinian State has to be East Jerusalem, which was occupied in 1967. He noted that we will not allow them to carry out their actions and divide the Al-Aqsa [Mosque], and stated: 'The Al-Aqsa [Mosque] is ours, and they have no right to defile it with their filthy feet. We will not allow them to, and we will do everything in our power to protect Jerusalem."

Division of the Al-Aqsa Mosque refers to physical division and division according to time, referring to a proposed law (May 2013) being reviewed in Israeli Parliament that would allow for both Jews and Muslims to pray on the Temple Mount. The law seeks to implement separate prayer times for Muslims and Jews at the site.
