PA daily op-ed: Israel is trying to ignite a religious war, is waging “wars” against the Al-Aqsa Mosque, in order to destroy it and build “what is called ‘the Third Temple’ on its ruins”

Excerpt of an op-ed by Omar Hilmi Al-Ghoul, regular columnist for the official PA daily

Headline: “Israel’s war against the churches”
     “The Israeli colonialism state is continuing to wage its wars against the Islamic and Christian houses of worship (refers to measures to collect taxes on church-owned properties in Jerusalem, not churches themselves; the proposed measures were later frozen –Ed.) in order to ignite a religious war and turn the conflict from political to religious. It has not stopped its wars against the Al-Aqsa Mosque at all levels, and is still continuing to force through its terrorist agenda from a religious point of view. This is in order to force through a division according to times and areas, ahead of destroying the mosque and building what is called ‘the Third Temple’ on its ruins.”
