PA Official: We Want Control of Pre-1967 Jerusalem

A top Palestinian Authority (PA) official said that the PA wants control of all the areas in Jerusalem that were won by Israel during the 1967 Six-Day War, including the Western Wall.

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.”

    Kerry is trying to force this travesty on Israel , what would America do if Mexico came and said we want the land back u got after the Mexican / American war ? Even worse God gave that land to Israel , who are the United States to push them to give it up ?

  3. Peter Maxx says:

    USA should back to Indian people. And kill over million Indian people

  5. Abdul Rashid says:

    You are unfair PA. after losing the war you want your territory back? You are infidel. Go to Mecca where your profit Muhammad originates. Jerusalem is land for the Jews.

  6. JD Méndez says:

    What part of them LOOSING don’t they get???

  7. James Bloyd says:

    Mecca is for Muslims…Jerusalem for Jews…read your Koran you greedy *******

  8. James Bloyd says:

    If Israel gives back territory lost by the Arabs after unilaterally attacking Israel, then what would be the Arab incentive to not attack again and again….????

  9. Too bad they can want the moon it doesn’t mean it’s theirs

  10. Yides Fekete says:

    Just as the holy rebbe of satmar rabeinu Yoel zt”l predicted in his sefer written many years ago. Slowly his words are coming true.

  11. send them all back to jordan

  12. Julie Adam says:

    How about a resounding “NO!”

  13. Josh Barrack says:

    What DOESN’T the PA want? Greedy, lying, whiners. The Arabs would be infinitely better served if the world forced regime change on the Palestinian territories.

  14. Cheryl Roth says:

    Like this is ever going to happen. Yea, right….Not according to GOD

  15. Dick Farrel says:

    fat flucking chance

  17. Those arabs are sick, Jewish people does not pretend to Mekka and Medina. Israeli government is too soft. I was wandering if arabs of mekaa or medina would share with cristians

  18. Alan Howlett says:

    Take a hike. You wouldn’t have given territory back under any circumstances.

  19. That is as ridiculous as Mexico asking for texas and all the other states lost during the US-Mexico war! Just won't happen! Dream on you stupid muslim crap fanatics!

  20. Ro Ugarte says:

    The difference is that Mexico was actually the owner of Texas, and it actually exists. Texas WAS stolen. Jerusalem was won from Jordan, not Palestine, and PLO is not even a country. Jerusalem WAS NOT stolen, it was won back.

  21. Robbie Goldstein says:

    The real question is WHY is Israel even allowing any of this. That is what everyone should be asking.

  22. I call "day dreamers". This is a God-given nation to the Jews, it cannot be changed and that is why God gave them strength to take it in 1967!

  23. The palestinian Arabs should go to the Buss Island.
