Are the exiles from the Al-Aqsa Mosque launching an initiative to oppose the occupation measures against them?
The measures of the Israeli occupation against Jerusalemites, especially those stationed and retreating in the courtyards of the Al-Aqsa Mosque, do not stop, as they increase the measures that affect the stationed residents, the elderly and women, and no longer exclude anyone and nothing..
According to Zina Amr, stationed at the Al-Aqsa Mosque, who was arrested for days with her academician husband, Dr. Jamal Amr, and interrogated with them after they left the mosque..
And he adds, from his house overlooking the shining golden-yellow dome: “The goal of our search is to work to exclude the last presence of Jerusalemites and prevent their activities inside Al-Aqsa.”“.
Amr (Umm Radwan) considers the day of his arrest a crucial day in his life. She says: “We were closed in the morning at the gate of the mosque. I was afraid that they wouldn’t let me in. They detained me for a quarter of an hour, and then I was allowed to enter by the decision of the police at the gate of the mosque. I felt that something was going to happen.”“.
And she continues: “I had recitations to learn the Qur’an by heart, followed by a religious sermon delivered that morning by my husband, Dr. Gamal Amr.“.
Zina confirms that she broadcast her husband’s religious teachings on the Internet, and “many believers gathered to listen to him, which surprised us, and it is not surprising that the police remained in place, even though the hour was far away. out of the way of intruders.”“.
On the other hand, the husband, an academic at Bir Zeit University, Jamal Amr, says that after “the period of the first raids ended, the police presence continued, and after the lecture I went to the area of the cup in Al-Aqsa while I was a policeman and his entourage continued to pursue me and take photos directly“.
He continued, saying: “Why is the police presence still there when the settlers are not present? They have sovereignty and control inside Al-Aqsa. This doubled my feeling that there was a conspiracy against me and my wife even before they knew the content of the sermon that I held.“.
Amr confirmed that the three judges, in the three courts presented to him, asked the competent authorities to translate the word, which was done. This means that the process is planned.
Al-Murabatan (husband and wife) were subjected to travel in Israeli detention centers and detention centers, and were brought before several courts with the aim of proving the charge of incitement through a religious lesson given by the husband while the wife broadcasted on the Internet..
Zina’s wife confirms that the first thing the lawyer did was to separate the two accusations, that is, to separate the accusation of broadcasting from religious education, which he actually succeeded in, speeding up her release and later her release. her husband..
After about a week of presentation to the court, the investigation phase and the translation of religious teachings, the courts failed to prove the charge of incitement, which is why they sentenced him to house arrest with a ban on entering Al. – The Aqsa Mosque and the entire Old Town, according to Amr..
He added: “The court has ordered that I must comply fully in case there is a trial in the next few days“.
Al-Mourabita Zina described that the investigative journey was full of torment, investigation and harsh conditions full of insults.
She also confirmed that she was placed in a prison intended for female criminals with the aim of further humiliation, because she heard and witnessed indecent speech that made the body freeze..
In a related context, Jerusalem activists called for coordination of efforts among those deported from the Al-Aqsa Mosque and steps to be taken to cease and desist from the occupation policy of deporting worshipers and stationed from the blessed mosque..
Jerusalem researcher Fakhri Abu Diab, who was deported from Al-Aqsa for a month, and was able to pray there at dawn today, said that the occupation aims, through the policy of deportation, to empty the Al-Aqsa Mosque of Jerusalemites..
Abu Diab called for coordinated efforts among those deported from Al-Aqsa to face the occupation’s decisions and get their right to pray in the blessed mosque.
Abu Diab stressed the need to take steps to stop the deportation policy, which is contrary to all humanitarian and international laws and norms.
The Jerusalem researcher warned against the absence of a reaction from the exiles, as this would encourage the occupation to take more steps against the believers, which would affect all Jerusalemites..
He explained that the deportation decisions come to give the settlers an opportunity to desecrate the Al-Aqsa Mosque and carry out their plans to Judaize it..
He emphasized that the occupation wants to remove all holy people from Al-Aqsa, but every return to it confirms the commitment of Palestinians to their mosque..
For her part, the stationed and Jerusalem teacher, Khadija Khwais, said: “The day must soon come when the unjust deportation decisions will be overturned, and one day we must return to Al-Aqsa.”.
Since 2011, Khwais has suffered from a policy of deportation from the blessed Al-Aqsa Mosque, until the combined periods of deportation extended to around eight years..
Since beginning its work on the flag terraces inside Al-Aqsa in 2014, the Khuwais station has not escaped repeated deportations, ranging from a week and 15 days to a month and 6 months, according to the decisions of the occupation police and courts..
The occupying authorities persecute the men and women stationed at the Al-Aqsa Mosque by arresting and deporting them, and deportation decisions vary from a week to 6 months, with the possibility of extension..
Today, Sunday morning, dozens of settlers stormed the blessed Al-Aqsa Mosque, from the Mughrabi Gate, under the strict protection of the Israeli occupation police..
And the Department of Islamic Endowments in occupied Jerusalem reported that groups of settlers repeatedly stormed the Al-Aqsa Mosque, conducted provocative tours and performed Talmudic rituals in its courtyards..
The “alleged Temple” groups began mobilizing their supporters to carry out a massive attack on the Al-Aqsa Mosque, on the Jewish holiday of “Anwar/Hanukkah” which begins on December 18 and lasts for eight days..
In response to calls from alleged Temple organizations, Jerusalemites launched calls to intensify mobilization and mobilization in the Al-Aqsa Mosque, to oppose settler incursions and occupation plans..
Every day, except Friday and Saturday, Al-Aqsa is exposed to a series of incursions by settlers, in the morning and evening periods, and these incursions intensify on holidays and special occasions for the occupying state, as part of its attempts to divide the mosque temporally and spatially..
In a related context, Hebrew sources published a statement by Itamar Ben Gvir, the leader of the Jewish Power Party, in which he promised to change the current situation in the blessed Al-Aqsa Mosque, especially regarding the incursion of settlers and their prayers there..
Ben Gvir continued in his statement that he would “prevent racist politics on the Temple Mount,” which he said would lead to significant change and improvement of the status quo..
In this context, Jerusalem researcher Fakhri Abu Diab said in an interview with the media: “Ben Gvir will try to tighten the situation in the Al-Aqsa Mosque in favor of the settlers, and will try to impose the Israeli plan on the Al-Aqsa Mosque, especially since it carries an ideology based on on changing the status quo at Al-Aqsa on a historic level.” Both legal and everything that exists now.
He added that Ben Gvir will try to impose this order and separate or divide part of the Al-Aqsa Mosque in favor of the settlers: “I think the coming days will be even hotter as a result of Ben Gvir’s attempts and ambitions.” and other settler groups who share the same ideas as him and try to impose Jewish facts on Al-Aqsa Mosque.”“.
Abu Diab emphasized that the plans of the settlers and Ben Gfir will be thwarted by the Palestinians, stationed and stationed, so the escalation in the Al-Aqsa Mosque is a feature that will be in the coming days, especially in light of the change of the occupation government from an extremist government to a more extreme government..
