Jerusalem Archbishop: Israeli aggression on Al-Aqsa targets Muslims and Christians


CHRISTIANS AND MUSLIMS ARE NATURAL ALLIES
For a long time, Christians and Muslims have been pitted against each other in order to benefit Jews. And in the last 25 years, people in the West have been constantly told that Muslims are primitive, barbaric and violent, unintelligent and uneducated, unsophisticated, and most of all hate Christians and Christianity. That is of course foolish propaganda. In “Israel” not only are Christian priests and nuns spit on regularly and churches and convents attacked with firebombs, but so are mosques. Arch-genocide promoter, Talmudist and Jewish supremacist deputy speaker of the Knesset, Moshe Feiglin, regularly storms the al Aqsa compound with fellow Jewish supremacists and perform their filthy Talmudic rituals there. In addition, Jewish police and soldiers close the al Aqsa compound to Muslims who go to pray there. The archbishop of Jerusalem considers this aggression that targets both Muslims and Christians.

Archbishop of the Greek Orthodox Church in Jerusalem Atallah Hanna said on Tuesday that the Israeli aggression on Al-Aqsa Mosque is an aggression on both Muslims and Christians, Jordanian newspaper Addustour reported.

In a recorded speech broadcast during a celebration in Jordan entitled “Resistance is the way to liberate land and return” organised to celebrate Gaza’s “victory”, Atallah said: “It was planned that I be with you here, but the Israeli occupation prevented me.”

He added: “Targeting the Gaza Strip means targeting Jerusalem and all the Palestinian lands.” He hailed the Palestinian unity and called for more harmony among Palestinians in order to be able to face the occupation’s policies which are aimed at Judaising Jerusalem and erasing the Palestinian identity.

The Bishop stressed that the continuous Zionist aggression is targeting “both Muslims and Christians, as well as all formations of the Arab nation.”

Atallah reiterated the importance of solidarity with the Gaza Strip, Amman, Jerusalem and all Arab cities, noting that “all wounds are the same and all suffering is the same as long as the aim is the same.”

Imad Momani, head of Al-Zarqa city where the celebration was held, said that the “Gaza Battle” was a “lesson” for the Zionists. Gaza, which represented the “most wonderful legend in the history”, was a “burial” site for the Zionists.

He hailed the Jordanian staff at the Jordanian Field Hospital which was setup in Gaza at the end of the Israeli assault on the Strip in 2008/2009. He also hailed the King of Jordan who asked for the hospital to be setup.

Momani called on all Jordanians to take the Gazans as an example as to how to fight the “monstrous” Israeli occupation.
