Islamist Sheikh Declares ‘Third Intifada Has Begun’


sheikh-raed-salahIn the midst of the growing wave of terror attacks, Sheikh Raed Salah, head of the Islamic Movement in Israel, has called on Arab residents of Judea and Samaria to go forth in an intifada terror war and declared that the “Third Intifada” has already started.

Salah told Al-Jazeera “residents of the (West) Bank should not respond to occurrences in Al-Quds (Jerusalem) from a position as observers of the situation, but rather residents of the Bank want to emphasize their commitment to the holiness of Al-Aqsa (Mosque) and the holy city.”

“The (Palestinian) Authority should provide them an environment of freedom and not act to oppress their processions as happened in Chevron and Shechem,” continued Salah, calling for demonstrations that frequently feature violent clashes with IDF forces. The PA has in the past said it is giving a free hand to terror.

Salah then praised the rise in terrorism as a “new intifada.”

“The Third Intifada has started and the important thing that characterizes it is the Jerusalemite who feels he is taking part in the war for existence, to be or not to be, and he is standing firm now against the plan of ethnic purification that the occupation is compelling and applying against them.” Read more at Arutz Sheva.
