“Al-Aqsa to Remain a Red Line”: Hamas Affirms on the 51st Anniversary of Burning It
Translated by Staff
On the 51st anniversary of burning of the holy al-Aqsa Mosque, Palestinian Hamas Resistance Movement affirmed that the sacred place is to remain a red line.
“Any attack on the Holy Mosque will be met with valiant resistance from the Palestinian people,” the movement stressed.
Hamas recalled that “The fire that was flamed fifty-one years ago was not, as the occupation claims, a madman’s action. Instead, it has been a systematic policy, and a firm vision adopted by the occupation since the first day on which it set its filthy foot on the pure land of al-Quds. Since its establishment “Israel” has set the Judaization of al-Aqsa Mosque, every stone, tree, and human in al-Quds as a goal.”
Hamas further lamented that “Some Arab regimes have chosen to run towards the occupation to normalize relations with it instead of standing by their mosque and repelling the continuous Zionist aggression against it.”
“The successive normalization schemes form a poisoned dagger in the heart of Palestinian cause, as it hands the apartheid entity instruments to proceed with the killing, displacement, demolition, siege, and desecration of the blessed al-Aqsa Mosque,” the movement underscored.
In parallel, Hamas affirmed that al-Aqsa Mosque will stay a red line, and the hand that extends to it will be cut off. “The deportation and the arrest of Sheikh Raed Salah is nothing but an attempt to undermine al-Aqsa Mosque,” it clarified.
It also stressed that “the unity of the word and the stance of the Palestinian people forms a strong weapon to confront the occupation and its malicious plans.”
Hamas also confirmed its great eagerness to move forward in the policy of joint action with all fractions to confront the annexation, Judaization and settlement schemes until defeating the occupier.
Categorically rejecting normalization with the “Israeli” occupation as reprehensible, the resistance movement considered it as nothing more than a stab in the heart of the Palestinian cause, and a betrayal of the al-Aqsa Mosque, al-Quds and Palestine.
