AL report: Israel plans to reduce Arab population of Jerusalem to 12%

[ 22/09/2010 - 10:40 AM ]

CAIRO, (PIC)-- A report on Israel's violations in occupied Jerusalem issued Tuesday by the Palestine section in the Arab League revealed Israeli plans to make the Arab Palestinians in the holy city a minority of 12 percent in 2020.

The report emphasized that Israel, since its occupation of Jerusalem, has embarked on closing all official Islamic institutions and opening Israeli judicial centers in their place.

It pointed out that the Israeli occupation authority (IOA) only recognizes the Christian religious shrines and sites according to an agreement it signed with the Vatican and refuses to recognize the Islamic holy places as part of its plans that are aimed to Judaize them.

The report added that the IOA deals with the natives of Jerusalem as immigrants to Israel according to a racist law it devised in order to serve its expansionist goals and consequently withdrew the IDs of many of them.

Israel, according to the report, invented laws that restrict the Muslims' freedom of worship and enable the Jews to enter the Aqsa Mosque and its courtyards to perform their rituals.
