Supreme Shari’ah Judge, PA Chairman Mahmoud Abbas’ advisor on Religious and Islamic Affairs, and Chairman of the Supreme Council for Shari’ah Justice Mahmoud Al-Habbash: “Today, here, we remember 6,000 years of Palestinianness of this land. Six thousand years since the Arab Canaanites built the city of Jerusalem (sic., the Canaanites were not Arabs), even before our forefather Abraham reached this land. We were here not only before the settlements, we were here before Israel, and we were even here before the Jewish religion, before Judaism, before Christianity, and before Islam. The Palestinians were here and will remain here, and the foreigners will leave… The… call is to the Israeli people – do you want peace? Peace will begin with you leaving here. Peace will begin with the removal of Israel from the occupied Palestinian land and with the transfer of all of the land of occupied Palestine, and primarily Jerusalem with all of its details and contours – the Al-Aqsa Mosque, the Church of the Holy Sepulchre, and the Al-Buraq Wall (i.e., the Western Wall of the Temple Mount) – which will be transferred to the independent Palestinian state, as it is responsible for protecting the holy sites.”
