Abu Teir: Salah arrest aimed at silencing Jerusalemites

[ 23/02/2011 – 07:13 PM ]


RAMALLAH, (PIC)– Jerusalem’s banished MP Mohammed Abu Teir condemned the arrest of Sheikh Raed Salah, calling it a new stab at ”silencing the voice of truth that defends Jerusalem”.

Salah, the leader  of the Islamic Movement in 1948-occupied Palestine, was arrested in the city’s Sheikh Jarrah district Tuesday heading back from a festival in Silwan’s Al-Bustan neighborhood.

Abu Teir told the Palestinian Information Center that Israel is seeking to “absent” Sheikh Salah for his role in exposing Israel’s crimes against Jerusalem and the Aqsa Mosque.

The exiled MP stressed that the continued persecution of Salah and all other figures defending Palestinian rights would not deter defense efforts in Jerusalem, the Aqsa Mosque, and the Islamic and national constants, but would only motivate more efforts ”until all rights are returned to their people.”

Abu Teir called on the Arabs and Muslims to help Palestinians living in Jerusalem and 1948-occupied Palestine defend the city’s holy sites from Israeli Judaization plots, and called upon Jerusalemites to ”firmly and strongly” be ready to stand up against and expose new transgression.
