The Battle for Jerusalem Has Begun

Excerpt taken from the Lekarev Report:

Ahmed Qurei, Palestinian Authority Prime Minister and senior PLO figure HAS announced that the fight for Jerusalem has now begun, following Israel’s departure from Gaza. Qurei, at a meeting held in Al-Quds University in the Jerusalem Arab neighborhood of Abu Dis Sunday, said that the PA would now focus its attention on Jerusalem. “The fight has begun for Jerusalem,” Qurei said, “and it is a dangerous war. No Arab, Palestinian – Christian or Muslim – will accept Israel’s racist plans.” Abu Dis is under PA administrative control, but the IDF controls security around the neighborhood.

Qurei demanded that US President George W. Bush pressure Israel to live up to the Bush demand to establish a “viable” Palestinian state. “The only viable country would be with the 1967 borders,” he said, “the Palestinians will not accept less than a state on the lands occupied in 1967 with Jerusalem as its capital.

“If I forget you, O Jerusalem, let my right hand wither; let my tongue stick to the roof of my mouth if I cease to think of you, if I do not hold Jerusalem above my greatest joy.” –Psalm 137: 5-6
