ISL Statement, the section of the RCIT in Israel/Occupied Palestine, 20.04.2022
The Palestinian Red Crescent Society reported that at least 50 Palestinian civilians were injured this Tuesday when Zionist soldiers fired tear gas canisters and rubber-coated metal bullets at them to secure a march of 20,000 super nationalist Zionists in a provocative activity in an area the settlers call Homesh, an illegal settlement by the standards of the Zionist government, south of the northern West Bank city of Nablus.
Among the marchers are senior ultra nationalist politicians, including Religious Zionism party head Bezalel Smotrich, Ben Gevir and Yamina MK Idit Silman, who was coalition whip until aligning with the opposition earlier this month.
The march passed through Palestinian villages where residents of the villages confronted the soldiers and settlers. The Provocative march was held despite the fact that the army had warned the organizers that it would not be able to secure the event. However, the organizers reached an agreement with the Zionist army that to defend the ultra-nationalists, it will fire tear gas canisters and rubber-coated metal bullets on the Palestinians.
This provocative ultra–nationalist march sheds light on the question of the Zionist state terror in Al Aqsa Mosques. While the right-wing Zionist government of Bennett-Meretz claims that the Palestinians attacked with stones the innocent police force and Jews praying at the Western Wall, Jordan a very close ally of the Zionist state has exposed the Zionist provocations.
Jordanian Prime Minister Bisher Al-Khasawneh stated that he “praises every Palestinian and Jordanian Islamic Wakf [religious trust] worker who stands tall like a turret and those who throw rocks at the pro-Zionists who are defiling al-Aqsa Mosque while under the security of the Israeli occupation government.” [i]
In response the Zionist Prime Minister Naftali Bennett said: “Israel is doing everything so that everyone can always celebrate their holidays safely – Jews, Muslims and Christians,” Bennett said. “We expect everyone not to join the lies and certainly not to encourage violence against Jews.” [ii]
So, who is lying, Bennett or Bisher Al-Khasawneh? “On April 7, 2022 the So-called Jewish Temple Mount groups called for organizing mass stormings of Al-Aqsa Mosque during the Jewish Passover holiday in mid-April and to offer animal sacrifices in its courtyards.
These calls came as dozens of right-wing Israelis stormed the courtyards of Al-Aqsa Mosque on April 7, 2022, through the Mughrabi Gate, while under the protection of occupation forces” [iii]
On April 18, the Zionist daily Jerusalem Post published a picture showing “security forces stand guard as religious Jews visit the Temple Mount.” (Credit: JAMAL AWAD/FLASH90)” [iv]
“There is a long-standing agreement whereby Muslims worship at Al-Aqsa – Islam’s third holiest site – while Jews worship at the nearby Western Wall. In a statement in favor of the police ban on Friday, Israel’s Public Security Minister Omer Bar-Lev had warned that a change in the status quo would “endanger the public peace”. [v]
However in the real world outside of the Zionist lies:”Israeli government allowing Jews to pray at the Al-Aqsa Mosque compound, stoking fears of shifting the revered site’s status quo, NYT reported : In a story published on Tuesday, the Times said Rabbi Yehudah Glick made “little effort to hide his prayers” and was even live streaming them. Since 1967, Jordan and Israel agreed that the Waqf, or the Islamic trust, would have control over matters inside the compound, while Israel would control external security. Non-Muslims would be allowed onto the site during visiting hours, but would not be allowed to pray there” [vi]
Not only the PM of Jordan denounced the Zionist police attack on Al Aqsa so did the Palestinian Authority and Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan who said on Sunday he had told his Palestinian counterpart Mahmoud Abbas that he condemned Israeli “intervention on worshippers” at Jerusalem’s Al-Aqsa Mosque and threats to its “status or spirit” [vii]. So did Bahrain, UAE and Morocco condemn Israel’s ‘storming of al-Aqsa Mosque’. “United Arab Emirates and Bahrain’s foreign ministries on Saturday condemned Israeli police for Friday’s clashes with rioters at Jerusalem’s flashpoint Temple Mount site, which they described as a “storming” of the Islamic shrine This blatant attack and systematic provocation during the holy month of Ramdan… will stoke hatred and extremism and undermine chances to revive the peace process in the region,” Morocco’s Foreign Ministry said in a statement” [viii]
Even Ra’am led by Mansur Abbas was forced to denounce the attack on Al Aqsa.
All of these figures and states are allies of Israel. They denounce Israel because they are afraid of the masses in the Islamic countries.
“Attacking Al Aqsa is not sufficient for the Zionists who want nothing less than a pogrom against the Palestinians. Right-wing hooligans “The Old City Youth organizations” and other right-wing groups plan to march with Zionist flags around the walls of the Old City of Jerusalem on Wednesday afternoon, despite lacking police approval for the event They told the Zionist police we march and you protect us and most likely the police will protect these provocateurs and the Zionist government will say that the Palestinians are the terrorists.”
So, Bennett and his government are lying. They have no problem lying, as these lies are spread by Biden’s government that protects Israel and its war crimes. The last evidence is the Seder celebrated by Vice President Kamala Harris for serving wine from an Israeli settlement at her official Passover Seder on Monday. [ix]
Now, look who came in her defense:
“Like many of us, this past weekend Vice President Kamala Harris and her husband Doug Emhoff held a Passover seder at their home. Unfortunately, at their Seder they unknowingly served wine produced in a West Bank settlement. A spokesperson for Harris quickly clarified that this was ‘in no way intended to be an expression of policy,'” Hadar Susskind, President and CEO of Americans for Peace Now wrote in the email.” [x]
“Harris is a known Hard supporter of the Zionist state: US Vice President Kamala Harris’s office was engaged in damage control Thursday after she did not push back against a university student who accused Israel of “ethnic genocide. Two Jewish groups said Harris’s aides had reached out to assure them of the vice president’s pro-Israel bona fides and POLITICO reported that Democratic Rep. Ted Deutch, who is Jewish and a vocal Israel advocate in Congress, received a similar call.Democratic Majority for Israel, a centrist group seeking to bolster support for Israel in the Democratic Party, said in a statement, “We were pleased Vice President Harris’s senior staff reached out to us today to confirm what we already knew: Her ‘commitment to Israel’s security is unwavering,’ and she ‘strongly disagrees with the George Mason student’s characterization of Israel.” [xi]
The state department issued a statement saying “The United States expressed its “deep concern” over the Friday morning violence at the al-Aqsa Mosque compound, where hundreds of Palestinian worshipers clashed with Israeli police in scenes akin to those that prefaced last May’s Gaza war.“We call on all sides to exercise restraint, avoid provocative actions and rhetoric, and preserve the historic status quo on the Haram al-Sharif/Temple Mount, We urge Palestinian and Israeli officials to work cooperatively to lower tensions and ensure the safety of everyone,” the statement continued. “The State Department is closely following developments and will continue to be in close contact with senior Israeli and Palestinian officials to seek to deescalate tensions” [xii]
This statement is like saying after an attack, that the US is against violence on both sides.
The Zionists have the “Hutzpah” to call the Palestinians terrorists when a few Palestinians use individual terror while the Settlers and the Zionist army and police are the ones who use massive state terror not only in East Jerusalem including the Al Aqsa but, in the West Bank and Gaza.
Down with the Zionist apartheid state from the river to the sea!
For a Palestine red and free from the river to the sea!
Break all connections between Arab and Muslim states and Israel!
