People’s Assembly: Israeli crimes against the Arab people laid the foundation for the terrorism currently sweeping across the region

Damascus, SANA – The People’s Assembly stressed that Israel with its terrorist crimes against the Arab people and the Islamic and Christian holy sites has laid the foundation for the terrorism which is now sweeping across the region and threatening all its social, religious, and ethnic components.

In a statement issued on Sunday marking the 45th anniversary of the Israeli crime of burning al-Aqsa Mosque, the Assembly said that the terrorist Wahabi and takfiri movements would not risen and amassed power without being sponsored and supported by the United States, Israel, and certain Arab regimes. 

The Assembly urged the Arab and Islamic peoples to spare no effort to stop the Israeli acts of sabotage, demolishing, and Judaization which target al-Aqsa Mosque, and to stop the terrorist acts perpetrated by the terrorist and takfiri organizations against Islamic and Christian holy sites in Syria and in Iraq.

The statement went on saying that on the 45 anniversary of the crime of burning al-Aqsa Mosque, the Palestinian people in Gaza Strip are exposed to a new holocaust at the hands of the Israeli occupation forces, criticizing the silence of the international community and some Arab countries towards Israel’s barbaric killing of innocent children, women, and elderly people and the burning and demolishing of the mosques and houses of the civilians in Gaza.

The Assembly pointed out that the systematic demolishing, Judaization and attempts to obliterate al-Aqsa Mosque’s Islamic and Arab features necessitate quick action on all political, diplomatic, and parliamentarian levels to protect it.

The statement warned the Arab people against the risks of the Zionist mentality on which Israel is based and the dangers of the Wahabi takfiri mentality adopted by the extremist terrorist organizations in Syria, Iraq, Lebanon, and other Arab countries, as they represent two sides of the same coin.

The statement concluded by saying “the confrontation is one – in Palestine, Syria, Iraq, and Lebanon, in intellect and in media, in politics and on the ground – to defend our identity, civilization, and the future of our nation.”

On August 21, 1999, Zionist extremist Denis Michael Rohan set fire to the pulpit of the Al-Aqsa Mosque, causing big damage to the building of the Mosque.
