“This explosive situation in which extremists in the Israeli government and among the settlers and other extreme groups are trying to push the region into religious confrontation, and that attitude and behaviour will take us to a place where we don’t know the results of that intensification of this sensitive situation in occupied East Jerusalem.”

7. SOUNDBITE (English) Riyad Mansour, Permanent Observer of Palestine to the United Nations:
“We don’t need people to use religious claims in order to have control over properties. Religious people, they have their connections spiritually to these holy sites, to Jerusalem, which is very important to the three religions, but one religion cannot use a Torah, as their ambassador in the Security Council last week used in order to try to use religion for having territorial claim over occupied East Jerusalem.”

STORYLINE:

Palestinian Ambassador Riyad Mansour today (5 Nov) presented a letter to the President of the Security Council denouncing the recent incidents at the Al-Aqsa Mosque in East Jerusalem.

Mansour told journalists outside the Council that "extremist groups, supported by extremists in the Israeli government, supported and protected by hundreds of soldiers and policemen, stormed Al-Aqsa Mosque, desecrated holy sites, including some of them entered the mosque with their shoes on, and even some of them climbed on one of the maharabs, which is the altar of the mosque, with their shoes on, which is something that is extremely provocative and it is not sensitive to the feelings of worshipers, Muslim worshipers in that place."

Mansour said that “this explosive situation in which extremists in the Israeli government and among the settlers and other extreme groups are trying to push the region into religious confrontation, and that attitude and behaviour will take us to a place where we don’t know the results of that intensification of this sensitive situation in occupied East Jerusalem.”

He stressed that “we don’t need people to use religious claims in order to have control over properties and complained that last week Israeli Ambassador Ron Prosor had brought a Torah into the Security Council “in order to try to use religion for having territorial claim over occupied East Jerusalem.”

According to news reports, a series of confrontations have occurred in East Jerusalem over the last few days, and Israeli security officers have clashed with Palestinian protesters after Israelis tried to storm the mosque.

Jordan has recalls its envoy to Israel over the incidents.
