First Deputy Speaker of the Palestinian Legislative Council (PLC), Ahmad Bahar, called on Friday on Muslim and Arab governments to shoulder their responsibilities toward al-Aqsa Mosque and protect it from the Israeli division schemes.
Bahar denounced in his Friday sermon the detention of the Palestinian MP Mohammed Abu Teir, who was expelled from Jerusalem to Ramallah following legislative elections in 2006, and said that the Israeli policy of kidnapping Palestinian MPs will not succeed in thwarting the work of the PLC.
He asked the United Nations to intervene to protect the parliamentary immunity of the Hamas-affiliated MPs.
He called for supporting Jerusalem politically and economically to strengthen the steadfastness of its people and approving a unified national plan to confront the Israeli racist schemes targeting the city.
Bahar affirmed that the Palestinian resistance will remain the main defender of the Palestinian cause, stressing the need to escalate the Jerusalem Intifada.
