Fatah Broadcasts Abbas’ Incitement Call To ‘Defend Al-Aqsa’ From Jewish ‘Defilement’

JERUSALEM – In the aftermath of Friday’s Temple Mount terror attack in which two Israeli policemen were killed by Arab-Israeli gunmen, Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas’ ruling Fatah faction rebroadcast his 2014 call to stop the Jews from “defiling” Muslim holy sites by “any way whatsoever.”
“We must all carry out Ribat [religious war] in the Al-Aqsa Mosque,” Abbas said in the video posted on Fatah’s official Facebook page on Saturday and translated by Palestinian Media Watch. “We have to prevent them, in any way whatsoever, from entering the Sanctuary.”
“They have no right to enter it. They have no right to defile it. We must prevent them. Let us stand before them with chests bared to protect our holy places,” he added.
In 2014, official PA TV  broadcast Abbas’ call to defend Al-Aqsa no less than 19 times in 3 days. What ensued was a week of Arab riots and the murder of a woman and her baby by a Palestinian terrorist. That was followed by a month of car rammings and stabbing attacks in Jerusalem in which 11 Israelis were murdered. WATCH
