palestinian-authority-minister-of-religious-affairs-mahmoud-al-habbashA top Palestinian Authority (PA) official said that the PA wants control of all the areas in Yerushalayim that were won by Israel during the 1967 Six-Day War, including the Kosel.

Minister of Holy Places for the PA Mahmoud al-Habbash told Israel’s Channel 10 network that “there will be no peace until the end of the Israeli occupation that began in 1967. Every piece of land that Israel conquered then belongs to the Palestinians.” That includes Jerusalem, the Al-Aqsa Mosque, and the Western Wall, al-Habbash said.

Al-Habbash added that if the Western Wall was under PA control, Jews would be welcome to pray freely at the site. “There will be no limitations on freedom of religion and worship. Religious ceremonies are one thing, and politics are another,” he said.

Currently, Jews already facing obstacles when they want to visit religious sites such as the Tomb of Joseph in Shechem and the Tomb of Joshua in Kifl Hares.

Abu-Ala-the PA’s Jerusalem minister-also spoke to the Israeli news channel, saying, “Given the intensity with which the Americans are approaching [the Israeli-Palestinian conflict negotiations they are currently brokering], there will probably be undesirable consequences if the talks fail.”

  1. Watch as the wicked are removed from the common ground of human hope. I can not think that the palestinians have the common cause of human betterment or trust. It would not be likely to think that this group of stragglers of human kindness has any capacity to dream or use higher learning for positive outcomes considering their regress of common humanity. I would be willing to bet that Hashem has a plan for many of us and the palestinians are likely not in the higher scope of common chased dreams. It is very unlikely that poverty will win the war on human existence. Never Again.

  2. I was brought up with the teaching that “i want,never gets”.Tell you what,Mr. Mahmoud,just continue with your demands,never say please,and we’ll all be ok.

  3. they won it from Jordan, not Palestine – the PA has no right to it – israel doesn’t either but palestine even less – should go back to Jordan, England, or Turkey – since they don’t want it, Israel can keep it but ”palestine” has no claim

  4. ENOUGH WANTING DELUSIONARY WISHES. All people searching for the truth KNOW that Israel belongs to the Jewish
    Nation. Hashem is preparing us for the Geulah
    which is very close. So hold on Yidden and wake up from the dream of golus. Get ready to greet Moshiach Tzidkeinu speedily in our days.
