The MP for the Change and Reform Bloc, affiliated with Hamas, told Quds Press on Thursday: “what the Palestinian Authority has done represents a new plot against al-Aqsa mosque.”

He warned that the Authority is selling the holy sites and explicitly giving up the holy al-Aqsa Mosque, and stressed that the city of Jerusalem is an Islamic endowment and that no one has the right to compromise the rights of its people.

The Jerusalemite MP added: “What happened at UNESCO supports the vision of the occupation, which considers the city of Jerusalem the eternal capital of the Jewish people.”

The Hebrew radio reported on Wednesday that the PLO, Jordan, and the Israeli government held an agreement, brokered by Washington, to withdraw resolutions condemning Israeli threats to Jerusalem’s Palestinian character as well as Israeli activity in the West Bank.

The resolutions were to be presented to the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization, which admitted Palestine as a member in September.

The Israeli radio had broadcasted the news that also included that Israel in return would allow a delegation from UNESCO to tour a number of ancient sites in the Old City in Jerusalem in mid May.

For its part; Hamas movement has also condemned the decision of the Palestinian Authority to withdraw the UNESCO draft resolutions.

Hamas’s official spokesman Fawzi Barhoum said in a press statement on Thursday: “This step is like a reward to the occupation for its crimes and violations.”.

“It is a contribution in erasing the Arabic and Islamic identity of Jerusalem, and it encourages the occupation to continue its Judaization program,” Barhoum added.

The Hamas official has also asserted that no one had the right to compromise the rights of the Palestinian people.

He called on all the Palestinian people, factions and leaders, all the Arab and Islamic countries, the Organization of Islamic Cooperation and the Arab League, to confront the Israeli violations against Jerusalem and Al-Aqsa Mosque, and to prevent any party from saving Israel from the International, national and legal prosecutions for its crimes.
