Palyouth Today, the spokesman for the Democratic Reform Faction in Fatah, Dimitri Diliani, revealed in a statement an alarming representation exposing theatrical performances designed for symbolic arrests.
Dimitri said Fatah’s Reformist Democratic Faction stands unwavering in its pursuit of truth amid the orchestrated maelstrom of Israeli propaganda, duplicity, and calculated apathy. Israeli authorities purportedly apprehended Jewish Supremacists involved in one of the numerous documented hate crimes against Christian pilgrims and indigenous people in the heart of occupied East Jerusalem, all while under the ostensible protection of Israeli Security forces.
Beneath the façade of this touted arrest, our legal team has exposed a disconcerting charade that lays bare the choreographed theatrics of a sham arrest. The perpetrators, Jewish supremacist young thugs, whose repugnant actions have rightfully appalled the global conscience, were brazenly paraded before the cameras only to be expediently ushered through the revolving doors of a police station. This exhibition of impunity and travesty of justice serves as a stark testament to an entrenched Israeli policy that condones and actively encourages hate crimes against Christians and Muslims, particularly in occupied East Jerusalem.
Diliani observed: "The Israeli Minister of National Security, Itamar Ben Gvir, a figure with a dubious past entailing Israeli courts’ convictions related to Jewish terrorism, has audaciously declared his intention to avert his gaze from such heinous acts committed against Christians. This official endorsement of bigotry and intolerance is nothing short of a reprehensible affront to the core principles of justice and religious freedom."
Diliani explained that Compounding this affront is the calculated manipulation of language by Israeli police and media, which has disdainfully chosen to label the victims of this hate crime as mere "tourists," thus negating their rightful identity as Christian pilgrims. This sinister terminological subversion underscores a broader pattern of non-recognition, disrespecting the sanctity of Christianity and its heritage in occupied East Jerusalem, including the revered holy sites like the Church of the Holy Sepulcher. It is a bold act of cultural erasure, a deliberate attempt to extinguish the historical and spiritual significance of Jerusalem to the Christian world.
Diliani added: "Israeli media, in lockstep with the government's agenda, has sought to downplay the gravity of this incident, if not outright ignore the swift, inexplicable release of these Jewish supremacists without charges. This glaring omission serves as a stark testament to the complicity of the Israeli establishment in perpetuating an atmosphere of hostility and discrimination against the indigenous Christian communities and the pilgrims they welcome."
Diliani confirmed that Fateh's Reformist Democratic Faction reaffirms its unwavering dedication to championing the rights and dignity of all individuals, regardless of their faith. We stand steadfast in our call for accountability, justice, and the cessation of the Israeli government's patronage of a culture steeped in hatred and bigotry against anything and anyone that’s not Jewish. We earnestly implore the international community to join us in exposing this grave injustice and ensuring the protection of the rights of Christian pilgrims and all Palestinians who call Occupied East Jerusalem home.
