Sheikh Salah: Israeli racist laws may trigger 3rd intifada in occupied lands

AMMAN, (PIC)– Head of the Islamic Movement in the 1948 occupied lands Sheikh Ra’ed Salah expressed his belief that a third Palestinian intifada (uprising) would break out because of the accelerating Israeli violations and racist laws against the Palestinians in occupied territories.

In a press statement to the Jordanian Al-Gad newspaper, Sheikh Salah, a noted advocate for the Islamic city of Jerusalem and its holy Aqsa Mosque, said the package of laws the Israeli government adopted recently, especially the citizenship revocation law, were intended to ethnically cleanse the Palestinians from their 1948 occupied lands individually and then collectively.

The Islamic leader pointed that the Israeli occupation authority threatened the Palestinian citizens that they would lose their citizenship and thus would be expelled from the 1948 occupied lands if they commemorated the Palestinian Nakba (catastrophe) anniversary.

He affirmed that every Palestinian individual from the 1948 occupied lands has a feeling that these Israeli racist laws follow and fight them everywhere they go, in his home, land, livelihood and future.

“The Palestinians in the territories occupied in 1948 have no way but to adopt the strategy of steadfastness and challenge, so we can live on it happily or get buried in it martyrs,” the Sheikh underscored.
