Jewish settlers storm and defile Aqsa Mosque this morning
Jewish settlers storm and defile Aqsa Mosque this morning
[ 26/12/2011 - 12:19 PM ]

OCCUPIED JERUSALEM, (PIC)-- Groups of Jewish settlers guarded by policemen desecrated Monday morning the Aqsa Mosque and walked in its courtyards after they entered through its Maghariba Gate.

Senior Jewish rabbis had urged their supporters last week to enter the Aqsa Mosque on the day of Hanukkah known as the festival of lights to perform Talmudic rituals and dance for several days.

Hundreds of Jewish settlers last night marched provocatively across the streets of the old city of Jerusalem chanting racist slurs against the Palestinians, performing dances and beating drums in order to disturb the residents.

They chanted slogans inciting against the Palestinian natives and calling for killing them or expelling them from the holy city.
