The Action Committee for Jerusalem and Palestine has called for demonstrations in all Egyptian mosques on Friday in protest at the latest Israeli aggression against the Al-Aqsa Mosque and the detention of the Mufti of Jerusalem and other Palestinian activists.

The Head of Jerusalem Committee of the Arab Doctors Union, Jamal Abdul-Salam, said that a number of action groups are to take part in the demonstrations. A central demonstration will be held at the Al-Azhar Mosque after the Friday prayer.

“The aggressions of the Zionist occupation against the Al-Aqsa Mosque over the last few days proves that they are going ahead with the implementation of a partition plan on a time share basis,” Abdul-Salam said.

He explained: “Similar to what they have done in the Ibrahimi Mosque in Hebron, they are going to reach a point of implement a partition plan based on the division of space.”

Abdul-Salam also highlighted Israeli aggression against Christians in the holy city asserting that the occupation had banned them from entering the Church of the Holy Sepulchre to celebrate Easter. “This confirms Zionist racism,” he said.

Previously, the Egyptian Doctors Union issued a statement calling for Egyptian president, Mohammed Morsi, to expel the Zionist ambassador to Cairo and to recall the Egyptian ambassador to Tel-Avivi as a response to the Israeli aggressions on the Al-Aqsa Mosque.
