As Temple Mount Tensions Remain High, Palestinian Authority Leader Abbas Calls for Further Protests

Amid the ongoing tensions in the Middle East over new security measures implemented by Israel at the Temple Mount in Jerusalem following the recent terrorist attack there in which two policemen were killed, Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas and his Fatah Party are urging protesters to stay on the streets.

“All of the new Israeli steps on the ground from that date [July 14, when the attack took place] until today need to stop, and then the situation in Jerusalem will return to normal,” Abbas said on Tuesday, in remarks translated by Palestinian Media Watch. “Afterwards we will continue our work on everything regarding the relations between us and them.”

“Since Israel tried to change the situation, the residents of Jerusalem have risen as one,” he continued. “You have objected to all of the steps, and we have supported you in what you have done and what you are doing. We are with you in everything that you have done and are still doing, as you are causing us pride, and you are taking care of your Al-Aqsa Mosque, your land, your dignity, your people, your religion and your holy sites. This is the response to everyone who wants to harm our holy sites. Jerusalem is ours. It is our capital and it is [under] our sovereignty, and therefore what you are doing is right.”

Never mind the state it's in as I tidy everything up prior to publication. Don't let good material go to waste - and so much does. In the interests of the environment we should always try to re-cycle everything, especially jokes. You know that makes sense! You may find some historical stuff here, but this does not really matter as humor is fairly timeless.
