This Friday: PA march on Jerusalem

The National and Islamic Forces in Ramallah, the umbrella organization coordinating the activities of Palestinian Authority organizations, is calling on the PA public to march on Jerusalem this Friday to protest Israel's policy and expose "false concessions" to the residents of the territories. A statement says they intend "to undermine the narrative of the occupation regarding freedom of worship, and to defend the Al-Aqsa Mosque by means of the raging human river."

The organization stressed the importance of boycotting Israeli produce during the month of Ramadan. It called for confrontations at all points of friction with the "occupation and its settlers," especially PA villages, to cut off "settler roads" and disrupt their lives. Next Friday was declared a day of escalation in the area.
