Israel is pursuing Judaization of Jerusalem al-Quds in order to pave the ground for cleansing Palestine from Palestinians, says an activist.

Israel has the project of “ethnically cleansing Palestine” through eliminating the presence of Palestinians and their memory in the occupied territories, Paul Larudee told Press TV on Sunday.

To reach the goal, he said, “It is extremely important to Judaize Jerusalem” al-Quds.

“The Israelis realize that they have to eliminate whatever is important to Palestinians in Jerusalem and the center of that is al-Aqsa [Mosque] and of course the Church of the Holy Sepulchre,” the activist of the Free Palestine Movement said.
