WAFA FEB 21 2012

RAMALLAH, February 21, 2012 (WAFA) – The Cabinet Tuesday condemned continuous attempts by Israeli settlers and extremists to raid Al-Aqsa Mosque in Jerusalem’s Old City and conduct religious rituals on its premises in a manner that provokes Muslim sentiments and creates a state of tension, according to a cabinet statement.

It held the Israeli government fully responsible for the acts of the extremists, demanding from the international community “to pressure Israel to put a stop to the practices of the right-wing extremists and settlers against the citizens and their properties.”

The Cabinet condemned Israeli demolition of more than 40 buildings, including 15 inhabited homes where 126 citizens lived including 62 children.

It called on the international community “to end those crimes against our people’s right to be housed on its land.”

It said this policy “reveals the racism of the occupation which builds settlements and expands them on occupied Palestinian land while the original owners of the land are prevented from building homes.”
