Jerusalem As Islam’s Capital?


Keeping-Jerusalem

The dangers for Israel and united Jewish Jerusalem are real, however, especially with the likely ascendancy of the Muslim Brotherhood to the presidency of Egypt. Just a year ago, an Israeli-Arab Knesset Member, Ibrahim Sarsour, spoke in Israel and actually called for the revival of the Islamic Caliphate – centered in Jerusalem.

True, one of the main backers of a new Caliphate has been al Qaeda, which has suffered several major setbacks and is no longer considered a leading figure on the worldwide terrorism scene. Al Qaeda long had a multi-stage “master plan for world domination,” which was first revealed in 2005 by a Jordanian journalist who interviewed top al Qaeda leaders. The 9/11 attacks, a major part of the strategy, were to have been followed by more than a decade of attacks around the world, crowned by the formation of a worldwide Islamic state somewhere around 2015. Finally, by 2020 at the latest, the entire world was to have come under control of the Islamic Caliphate.

Even if al Qaeda is out of commission, its dreams of a Caliphate – with Jerusalem as its capital – are still alive throughout the Muslim world. In just a few days we will know whether the new ruler of 90 million Egyptians will seek to use his position of power to actualize these aspirations.

Meanwhile, we must redouble our own counter-efforts to make sure Jerusalem remains united, in word and deed, under Jewish-Israeli rule.

    I WOULD LOVE TO KNOW WHAT PERCENYAGE OF EGYPTIANS ARE ABLE TO READ.

    THEY FOLLOW THEIR EVEL LEADERS BECAUE THEY HAVE NO BRAINS TO UNDERSTAND THAT IF EGYPT ATTACKS ISRAEL AGAIN, LIKE THE 6 DAY WAR, EGYPT WILL SURRENDER TO ISRAEL. AGAIN.

    i HOPE THAT ISRAEL WILL BE ABLE TO COPYE WITH MILLIONS OF CAMEL CHASERS WHO HAVE NO EDUCATION, NOR ANY BRAIN.

    THE EGYPTIANS MAY HAVE HUNDREDS OF MILLIONS, AGSINST THE ISRAELI 6 MILLION. BUT IT IS NOT NUMBERS. IT IS BRAINS THAT WIN A WAR.. SOMETHING THAT EGYPT HAS A GREAT LACK OF.
