Temple Mount tensions rise as both Hamas and Fatah have started calling for a new intifada agianst Israel.
The Hamas movement urged Palestinians throughout the West Bank, Gaza, and Israel to take to the streets and begin a new uprising against Israel in reaction to clashes at the Al-Aqsa Mosque in Jerusalem on Sunday. In his call for protests, senior Hamas leader Muhammad Abu Askar in Gaza also called on Arabs and Muslims throughout the world to take action to defend the mosque.
Hamas spokesperson Sami Abu Zuhri said the Israeli “attack” on Al-Aqsa was an attempt to escalate the situation. “The Israeli occupation is not interested in calm,” he said, holding Israel accountable for the repercussions of the escalation.
Muhammad Dahlan is warning of a 3rd Intifada:
Dahlan, a member of Fatah’s Central Committee, warned on Sunday a third intifada could arise in light of “Israel’s contempt for the feelings of Muslims.”
Jerusalem belongs to Israel, always has, always will. Get the Goddamn Arabs out of Israel’s capital. They have no claim to Jerusalem, never did, never will. Show me one place where Jerusalem is even mentioned in the Qur’an. You can’t because it isn’t there.
