A week ago, the Israeli police arrested 5 young Jerusalemites for their objection to the entry of the Emiratis into the blessed Al-Aqsa Mosque under Israeli protection, and because they filmed them while wandering around and praying or during their expulsion by worshipers from the mosque.
Four of them were later released on condition of deportation from Al-Aqsa Mosque and the Old City, while the detention of the young Jerusalemite Ahmed Abu Subeih, who was arrested the day before yesterday, was extended to bring to court.
One of those released was the young Jerusalemite Asaad Ajaj, and his brother Nasser spoke to Al-Jazeera Net, saying that Asaad was in the Al-Aqsa Mosque last Thursday as usual, and he was surprised that the members of the Emirati delegation stormed the Al-Aqsa Mosque with the protection of the Israeli police, so he decided to walk behind them and photograph them and intentionally express his opinion as a Jerusalemite objecting to such visits.
The police immediately detained his phone, arrested him, and took him to an investigation center, and after interrogating him for hours, he received a decision to be deported for a week from Al-Aqsa and the Old City, provided that he undergoes another investigation session after the end of the week to receive a decision to be deported from the mosque and the old town – in which he lives – for a period ranging between 3 and 6 Months.
Nasser also suffered a similar procedure a month ago to that of his brother Asaad, as the occupation forces stormed his home in the Old City and took him to the investigation center.
“They accused me of inciting people against Emirati delegations and burning pictures of Mohammed bin Zayed in Al-Aqsa, in protest against the normalization agreement between the UAE and Israel, and they handed me a decision to be deported for 8 days from the mosque,” he says.

Pursuing those who refuse to storm
And whether the Israeli police and intelligence have already started pursuing and arresting everyone who objects to the Emirati presence in Al-Aqsa Mosque, the head of the Committee for the Families of Jerusalemite Prisoners, Amjad Abu Asab, says that the occupation authorities are fighting with all force any manifestation of objection to the presence of the new intruders to Al-Aqsa.
He added, “Israel wants to tell the new intruders that the Al-Aqsa Mosque is subject to its sovereignty, and that their visit to it can take place calmly, and therefore they do not want anything to disturb the peace of these visits, and what we have seen from storming a young man’s house and sabotaging its contents and furniture because of his objection to the Emirati storming of Al-Aqsa confirms The occupation wants to suppress all those who object to the visits to the mosque of the Israelis and their allies. “
Abu Asab confirms that, based on successive experiences, Al-Aqsa pronounces on the hands of his worshiper every complicit, typist, and passive, and that the experience of the Jerusalemites and their steadfastness on the ground is stronger than all the forces that gave up the mosque.
He added, “What the Emiratis have done is difficult to comprehend, as it is betrayal and a surrender of the blood of the martyrs and the position of Arabism. Bahrain, Sudan, and any country contemplating normalizing relations with the occupation must know that they will meet the same fate in the squares of Al Aqsa.”
As for the researcher on Jerusalem affairs, Ziad Abhais says that it is necessary to insist on naming the Emirati delegations as the intruders, because “we are facing a party that uses its affiliation to Islam and its performance of prayers to impose a redefinition of the Islamic sanctuary on all Muslims in a Zionist context, by adopting the Zionist definition that considers that Al-Aqsa Mosque is the tribal prayer hall only “Its squares are common for religions and must be open to the prayers of the Jews, and that sovereignty over Al-Aqsa is final Israeli sovereignty.”
In his speech to Al-Jazeera Net, he added that these incursions came from the gate of coordination with the Israelis, and started from the deal of the century and the Abraham agreement, and thus they are incursions by the Zionists of a new type and calling them normalization visits wrong.
Controversy over sovereignty
Abhais talks about the timing of the storming of Emirati delegations between the afternoon and sunset prayers, and commented on that, saying that this is what characterizes settler incursions usually, because the police cannot secure the incursions at the time of the prayers, as they enter the Israeli settlers in the morning until before the noon prayer, and then between the noon and afternoon prayers. And there is no time left for her during the day except between the prayers of Asr and Maghrib, and the Emiratis stormed at this time.
It is as though the Israeli police – according to Abhais – want to “devote the first two times to the Jewish Zionists and the third to the Arab Zionists, and it is too early to talk about devoting that, but there is coordination.”
In his answer to a question about whether the police have started pursuing anyone who stands in the way of these incursions, Abhais replied, “Yes, because the Emiratis enter under the authority of the Israeli police and at its gate, and securing their entry becomes their responsibility, and this is what Jerusalemites refuse.”
He points out that this step must be viewed with a serious risk that the Israeli police will become the one in charge of protecting a Muslim party, and thus the Islamic administration in Al-Aqsa will become the subject of controversy. Is it with the Jordanian endowments or with the Israelis?
Abhais concludes that “these incursions must be pursued as the Zionist storming is pursued, and all that the extremists’ storming deserves is a response that deserves the Arab Zionist intrusion, because it comes in the Zionist context to change the identity of Al-Aqsa, and it is dangerous because it comes from an Arab side.”
