Columnist Zaid al-Shami says in his article on the 28th of September 2000 Sharon had entered the courtyard of al-Aqsa mosque under protection of 2000 soldiers and the strugglers of the sons of Al-Quds were waiting for him with their shoes to hurl at him and his soldiers.
The Palestinians managed to drive them back and from then the intifada erupted. Since that date, the jihad has been escalating and the Palestinian blood irrigating the occupied land in the most spectacular scenes of sacrifice amounting to more than 3500 martyrs and more than 50 thousand wounded and 5 thousand prisoners, including men, women and children. The Palestinians of the intifada sustained losses of more than 60 thousand houses demolished at the hands of occupation troops.
Because of the Palestinian intifada, more than one million Zionists left for their former countries and their dream of a state from Euphrates to Nile has gone in smoke. Therefore, they began to build a concrete wall in order to live inside a large prison. The Aqsa intifada does not stop at that, it has undermined the calls for “peace” and sidelined advocates of normalization and blocked the way for the hesitant. The dove of peace has already been killed by Sharon.
