Print PDF

On Thursday, an Israeli minister broke into Al Aqsa along with dozens of settlers under police protection as part of Israels celebrations marking the occupation of Jerusalem in 1967. According to eyewitnesses, the minister entered from the Moroccan Gate along with journalists and right wing Israelis to cover the event.
The celebrations, will carry on through Monday and will include marches and festivals, the most significant being the central march on Sunday through the Old City. The march will begin in Sheikh Jarrah and end at the Buraq Wall (Western). The march is held every year as part of what Israel calls the celebration of the unification of Jerusalem. The Aqsa Institute reaffirmed that such celebrations does not give any legitimacy t o the occupation of Jerusalem or of Al Aqsa but rather are reminders of the painful reality of Jerusalem today and the grave dangers facing it and the Aqsa. According to media reports, a special Israeli government session will be held Sunday morning at a location close to Sheikh Jarrah. The Jerusalem mayor and his wife will also receive people at the Jerusalem Citadel which is in east Jerusalem and under Israeli control the mosque inside the citadel has been turned into a museum. The march to take place that day will be one named dancing and flags in which Israeli settler youth shout anti-Arab slogans, raise Israeli flags and dance in the Old City in Palestinian areas. That night, a festival called the Rap Synagogue will take place in which Netanyahu and Jerusalem mayor Nir Barkat will participate. A day later, a dance and song festival will take place in one of Jerusalems public parks. The Aqsa Institute warned of the dangerous ramifications of such marches which try to reinforce the occupation of Jerusalem and Al Aqsa, stressing that Jerusalem will always remain Arab Palestinian and Muslim.
