Christians Appeal to Israeli High Court to Allow Easter Celebration

Palestinian Christians who are members of the Eatern Orthodox tradition are waiting for the Israeli High Court to make a decision as to whether they will be allowed to practice their freedom of worship for Easter. The petition was submitted by Jerusalem Orthodox institutions and personalities after the Israeli authorities imposed restrictions and reduced the number of Christians they would allow to participate in the “Saturday of Light” celebrations in the Church of the Holy Sepulcher in Jerusalem.

This Church is located at the place where Christians believe that Jesus ascended to heaven, and is an extremely holy site for Christians of all denominations.

While Western Christian churches celebrated Easter last week, the Eastern Orthodox branch of Christianity is preparing to celebrate the holiday this Sunday April 24th.

In a statement, the Arab Orthodox institutions in Jerusalem, represented by lawyers Elias Khoury and Shady Samar, said, “Orthodox personalities and institutions submitted a petition to the Supreme Court against the decision of the police to restrict the access of Christians to the Church of the Holy Sepulcher and to reduce the number of people who celebrate the Holy Saturday on the eve of Easter Sunday, in contravention of the most basic human rights, freedom of worship, and international covenants.

“The plaintiffs refused any compromise on the rights of Christians to practice their religious and traditional rites and free access to places of worship without barriers or permits, and a settlement proposal was rejected not to prevent entry to the Old City through the barriers and to allow only four thousand people to access the Church of the Holy Sepulcher and its surroundings, giving the police the right to close the checkpoints if they so choose.

The appeal came after the Israeli government announced they would impose restrictions on the number of entrants to the Church of the Holy Sepulcher in occupied Jerusalem on Holy Saturday, which falls at the end of this week and precedes Easter Sunday, according to the eastern calendar.

The Arab Appeal Committee noted that, “the Church of the Holy Sepulcher witnesses severe restrictions on the number of worshipers every year, on Easter holidays, but this year Israel tightened the restrictions, even more, depriving thousands of access to the Church of the Holy Sepulcher. These restrictions come in parallel with the restrictions imposed by Israel on entering the Old City of occupied Jerusalem, and on accessing the blessed Al-Aqsa Mosque, which confirms that Israel targets all occupied Jerusalem with its Palestinian national and religious identity.”

Israeli soldiers and settlers have been attacking Palestinian Christians and Muslims at prayer on numerous occasions over the past week – which marks a special holiday on the Christian (Easter), Muslim (Ramadan) and Jewish (Passover) calendars.

Israeli Soldiers Injure Twenty Palestinians In Al-Aqsa

Israeli soldiers injured, Thursday, at least twenty Palestinians as the army continued for the fifth consecutive day its invasions and violations in the courtyards of the Al-Aqsa Mosque, in the occupied capital Jerusalem, in the West Bank.

The Palestinian Red Cresent Society (PRCS) said its medics provided treatment to a Palestinian who was shot with a rubber-coated steel bullet in the face, in addition to at least nineteen who suffered the effects of teargas inhalation in the al-Qibli Mosque in Al-Aqsa, after the army invaded it and forced the Palestinians out to allow groups of illegal colonizers to tour the holy site.

The attacks occurred when dozens of soldiers and police officers stormed Al-Aqsa courtyards, assaulted dozens of Muslim worshipers, and prevented Palestinian medics from entering the area for a few hours.

The soldiers fired many gas bombs, concussion grenades, and rubber-coated steel bullets at the Palestinians to force them out of the Al-Qibli Mosque, Al-Aqsa Mosque, and the Dome of the Rock after surrounding them.

The soldiers also attacked many Palestinian journalists and forced them to leave the holy compound through the Chain Gate.

After the attacks, the army and the police allowed more than 760 Israeli colonizers in several groups to storm the courtyards of the holy compound.

On Wednesday, Israeli soldiers invaded the holy site and injured 21 Palestinians before removing the worshipers and allowing more than 1180 colonizers into the courtyards of Al-Aqsa through the al-Magharba Gate.
