Jihad leader preaches new Jerusalem vision

Gaza – Ma'an – Islamic Jihad's secretary-general in Palestine on Sunday described Israeli measures in Jerusalem as representing the last opportunity for the Muslim and Arab world to support the holy city against occupation.

"Israel is not acting in secret. Every Israeli plot and action is being carried out publicly," Ramadan Shallah said in a telephone address to participants at a festival held in Istanbul, Turkey to show solidarity with Jerusalem.

"If Israel succeeds in realizing its goals of annexing and Judaizing Jerusalem, that will pave the way to controlling every capital in the Arab and Islamic world including Ankara, Cairo, Damascus, Amman, Riyadh, and others. Israel could even work its way toward Mecca and Medina," he said.

The Islamic Jihad leader preached a new vision and new education that would create a different approach toward liberating Jerusalem. He maintained that each home, street, foundation, and mosque in the Islamic world should focus on Jerusalem.
