PA Security Forces spokesman on US decision on Jerusalem: The Palestinian people will defend Jerusalem “with all of its capabilities;” “Allah wanted us as Palestinians to carry out Ribat in Jerusalem”

      “General Political Commissioner [of the PLO Political and National Guidance Authority] and [PA] Security Forces Official Spokesman Adnan Al-Damiri said that if the American administration transfers its embassy in Israel to Jerusalem and recognizes Jerusalem as the capital of the occupation state [Israel], this will put the US in a confrontation with all of the peoples of the region and the entire world. This will also turn it from a state that is biased in favor of the occupation into a state that is a partner in the occupation, will endanger its interests in the region, and will disprove its false claims according to which it respects international law and the decisions of international bodies…
He added that everyone must prepare for the next step after Washington’s recognition of Jerusalem [as the capital of Israel], and said that the Palestinian people, with all of its components, will not accept this and will come out with all of its capabilities to defend Jerusalem, which is not only Palestinian, but also Arab and Islamic, and Allah wanted us as Palestinians to carry out Ribat (i.e., religious conflict/war over land claimed to be Islamic) in Jerusalem and its surroundings; we will defend it and protect this precious diamond with all of our force."
