OCCUPIED JERUSALEM, (PIC)– Khalid Abu Arafa, the former minister of the Jerusalem affairs, has described Thursday Jerusalem as a time-bomb that could cause the entire region to erupt.

In an interview with the PIC from his sit-in tent in Jerusalem, Abu Arafa said that PA chief Mahmoud Abbas and his prime minister Salam Fayyad know very well that forming a new Palestinian government before ending the political rift in the Palestinian arena is like building a house without foundations.

He also urged both Fatah and Hamas Movements to seriously discuss restoring Palestinian unity and achieving national reconciliations, saying that direct dialogue between Palestinian factions is the shortest route to achieve such noble goal.

As far as the Israeli crimes against the occupied city of Jerusalem, Abu Arafa said that what the Israeli occupation authorities were doing in the occupied city indicates that it was flip-flopping and it completely lost the compass.

“The Israeli occupation was well-aware of the state of disgruntlement engulfing the Palestinian people in occupied Jerusalem due to the Israeli practices against them, and they also know that Jerusalem is a time-bomb that could explode the entire region if detonated,”  he stressed.
