IOA intends to turn Mosque in Jerusalem into synagogue

NAZARETH, (PIC)– The Israeli occupation authority (IOA) plans to convert a historical Islamic mosque in occupied Jerusalem to a synagogue, Haaretz newspaper said.

The newspaper said that the Israeli antiquities authority intends to remove all Islamic features of Nabi Dawoud (Prophet David) Mosque in Jerusalem after it was vandalized by Jewish settlers.

Extremist Jewish settlers stormed the Mosque recently and embarked on smashing its ceramic and marble walls, which dates back to the Ottoman era.

MK calls for defiling Aqsa Mosque, another calls for killing Palestinians

OCCUPIED JERUSALEM, (PIC)– Likud’s Knesset member Moshe Feiglin called for desecrating the Aqsa Mosque in thousands during the holy month of Ramadan, while the Jewish Home’s Knesset member Eli Ben Dahan called for killing the Palestinians.

A Hebrew channel quoted Feiglin as saying that preventing the Jews from entering what he described as the temple mount (Aqsa Mosque) during Ramadan is a source of concern, especially since it is associated with the Israeli diplomatic talks with the Palestinians.

Feiglin also expressed his fears of what he claimed as the Muslim takeover of the alleged temple mount in the framework of an intended agreement between the Israeli government and the Palestinian Authority.

For his part, Eli Ben Dahan, who also serves as a deputy minister of religious services, incited the Jewish settlers to kill the Palestinians.

In a press interview conducted by an Israeli magazine, Dahan described the Palestinians as “animals who do not deserve to live”, and called for killing them.

He claimed that the Palestinians do not want peace and teach their kids in refugee camps how to use weapons to kill the Jews.
