RCJA decries Israeli court verdict targeting Jerusalem's historical status quo


(MENAFN- Jordan News Agency) Amman, Oct. 7 (Petra)-Secretary-General of the Royal Committee for Jerusalem Affairs (RCJA), Abdullah Kanaan, said the daily Israeli violations against Palestinian people and Jerusalem are "legally and internationally rejected."
In an interview with "Petra" on Thursday, he said these violations come within the repeated Israeli policies targeting Palestine and Jerusalem, based on " invalid racist laws, constituing a more barbaric version of the apartheid that was known in South Africa," noting that Israel is an occupying power according to international law.
Commenting on an Israeli court's ruling to allow Jewish settlers to pray silently in Al-Aqsa Mosque, he said Israel uses its courts, security services, and institutions as a "colonial" arm in implementing its Judaizing plans, snubbing all international legitimacy resolutions, which stress the need to preserve Jerusalem's historical status quo.
The RCJA affirms Israel has no justification to attack Al-Aqsa Mosque, under the pretext of religious rituals aimed to establish the alleged temple, he said, pledging to "firmly" counter Israeli court rulings against the Palestinian people and Jerusalem sanctities.
Continuing: "Israel should listen to the voices of reason, logic and international legitimacy, " as His Majesty King Abdullah II, who has the historical Hashemite custodianship over Jerusalem and its Islamic and Christian holy sites, has reiterate compliance with international legitimacy resolutions is a perquisite to security and peace.
In this regard, Kanaan also referred to the King's stances calling for establishing a Palestinian state on the 1967 borders, with East Jerusalem as its capital, and restoring right of the Palestinian people to their freedom and self-determination.
