2013-05-22 A Palestinian Foundation, located in the 48 occupied territories, revealed that ‘Israeli gangs have been using malicious methods to destruct and Judaize Islamic and Christian holy places in order to blur the Palestinian landmarks over the past 65 years.
Al-Aqsa Foundation for Endowments and Heritage (AFEH) said, in a press release on Tuesday, that Islamic and Christian holy sites are subjected to an Israeli continuous and tireless Judaization policy aiming to remove its Arab and Islamic character.
Nearly 2350 Palestinian Islamic and Christian holy sites have been desecrated by the Israeli occupation in the occupied territories in 1948, the Foundation confirmed.
1350 holy sites including graves, mosques, churches and chapels in the northern area of the Palestinian territories were either partially or fully demolished by Israel, Abdul Majeed Aghbariya, head of the sanctities portfolio at the Foundation reported.
Furthermore, Aghbariya pointed out that about 1,000 holy sites in the southern part of the occupied territories have also been desecrated.
He noted that the report only included the Arab coastal cities such as Acre, Haifa, Jaffa, Al-Lid and Ramla.
Hundreds of graves and mosques have been totally destroyed and turned into restaurants, bars, museums and synagogues, he added.
The Union of Good (UOG) is a coalition of Islamic charities that provides financial support to both the Hamas “social” infrastructure, as well as its terrorist activities. It is headed by global Muslim Brotherhood leader Youssef Qaradawi, and most of the trustees and member organizations are associated with the Global Muslim Brotherhood.
10 May 2013 TUNIS (TAP) – Tunisia firmly condemns the Israeli belligerent and provocative recurrent behaviour in defiance of the rights of the Palestinian people and all the Muslim peoples, because of ‘the unprecedented serious Israeli desecration of the esplanade of Al Aqsa Mosque and attacks on Islamic holy sites.’
Tunisia, the Foreign Ministry underlines in a statement released public on Friday, ‘calls on the international, Islamic and Arab organisations to act to protect the Al-Quds city of desecration, whose sacred Islamic and Christian sites are target of the occupier, as well as the Israeli plans aimed to put under control and change its religious monuments, in such a manner as to undermine the foundations of the final settlement of the Palestinian cause.’
Tunisia’ urges anew the international community to intervene immediately to force Israel to stop its aggressions and comply with the international treaties’ adds the Foreign Ministry in its statement, considering that ‘what happened is a serious breach of law and the international treaties.’
