The Palestinian Information Centre -  30 May 2011

The Islamic Christian Commission in support of Jerusalem and the holy sites said that the Citadel of David mosque was not the first one that Israel converted into a Jewish site.

The statement comes as Israelis celebrate the opening of a museum built on the ruins of the mosque.

”Israel has been taking control of the mosques and converting their usage to be consistent with Israeli objectives and plans to Judaize Jerusalem and erase its identity and religious symbols,” declared ICC secretary-general Hassan Khater.

Situated in the Al-Khalil gate, the museum serves as a dangerous center in finishing the Judaization of Jerusalem, Khater stated.

During the opening ceremony, Israeli officials earmarked $100 million to support Judaization projects in Jerusalem, projects related to culture and history.

According to Khatir, the sum does not represent what is actually spent on the city by the Israeli development fund and the Jerusalem municipality as well as private religious funds. He estimated that the total amount of what is spent to rise above one billion dollars a year.

The museum opening comes after Israeli Prime Minister confirmed during a speech to US Congress that Israel would not compromise on Jerusalem in negotiations with the Palestinians.
