(June 16, 2020 / JNS) Palestinian Authority Foreign Minister Riyad Al-Malki “continues to demonize Israel with the libel that Israel plans ‘to destroy the Al-Aqsa Mosque and build the alleged Temple,’ a new report reveals.
According the Palestinian Media Watch Report, Al-Malki has been “fan[ning] the flames of religious war” against the Jewish state, claiming that its stated intention to begin extending sovereignty over the Jordan Valley and parts of Judea and Samaria—in accourdance with U.S. President Donald Trump’s “Peace to Prosperity” plan—”will turn the [Palestinian-Israeli] conflict from a political conflict into a religious conflict, whose end will be bad and bitter, will undermine the stability, and will destroy the security and peace in the region and the world.
He made this statement during a a video conference with Arab officials discussing Israeli annexation. the official P.A. daily, Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, reported on June 11. He used almost identical words on P.A.-T.V. News, on May 1.
Malki’s statements can be viewed as incitement to violence if Israel goes through with extending sovereignty in Judea and Samaria.
