If Israel continues with its current policies concerning Jerusalem, it will lead to a "religious war," Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas said Wednesday. In a speech he delivered on a visit to Morocco, the PA president said that "the fanning of flames by Israeli extremists has caused the dangerous situation which currently prevails in Jerusalem." He went on to say that settlement construction and denying the Palestinians rights posed a threat to Middle East stability.
