The Islamic Movement is perpetuating violence in Jerusalem and is putting Israel's sovereignty over the capital into jeopardy, a report published Sunday ahead of Jerusalem Day by right-wing watchdog group Im Tirtzu warns.
According to the report, officials from the Southern Branch promote clashes in the capital and on Temple Mount by working with several "charitable" organizations, including the Al-Aqsa Foundation, to transports thousands of Muslims to the site and East Jerusalem.
The capital is one of several Israeli cities considered by the organization "front lines" for the "struggle against infidels." The rest of Israel, according to them, is "land captured by those infidels."
The report also showed that the Al-Aqsa Foundation has in recent years received substantial funding from foreign charitable organizations, like Moscow-based Solidarity Charitable Foundation, whose founder is a known Hamas sympathizer.
According to Im Tirtzu, Israel is losing its sovereignty over Jerusalem to extreme Islamists, exacerbated by the lack of response on behalf of political leaders over the latest wave of violence on the Temple Mount and East Jerusalem.
"The Israeli government must wake up, otherwise the nation will lose the place it cherishes the most," it said.
