Ramadan Shalah, the head of the Palestinian Islamic Jihad terrorist organization, chastised fellow Arabs, and especially fellow Palestinians, for failing to love Jerusalem as much as the Jews do.
An audio recording of Shalah addressing a clerical conference in Tehran was obtained by Israel’s Army Radio. In the clip, the terror leader is distraught over the seeming lack of Arab seriousness in regards to Jerusalem, while for the Jews, the Holy City is there heart and soul.
“What is the meaning of Jerusalem for us?” Shalah asked. “Learn from the Jews, from that accursed entity [Israel]. They love Jerusalem not just as a military matter, but as a cultural one.”
As evidence of this, Shalah extensively referenced Naomi Shemer’s world-famous song “Jerusalem of Gold.”
“Every Israeli child and every accursed Israeli soldier says this song in their heart,” the upset killer of men, women and children informed his audience.
