Jordan Warns Against Israeli Aggression on Temple Mount

The Hashemite Kindgom of Jordan has repeated a long-standing libel that Israel is “forging ahead with its measures targeting Islamic shrines in East Jerusalem,” and warned Israel that allowing Jews to visit the Temple Mount would “ignit(e) the flames of hatred and violence.”

According to a report in the Jordan Times, Israel’s “occupation forces… prevented Muslims from reaching the mosque on the second Friday of the holy month of Ramadan.”

Somehow, the report seemed to miss the fact that thousands of  Muslim women, and men over the age of 50, prayed on the Temple Mount last Friday, as well as the background for the ban on younger men at the site: Repeated violence and rioting at the site by Palestinian activists.

Minister of State for Media Affairs and Communications Mohammad Momani noted Israel’s “attack against Palestinians who wanted to pray at Al Aqsa” – Arab-speak for ‘Jews visited the Temple Mount” – and accused Israeli “settlers” of breaking into the mosque for no other reason but to “provoke the feelings of Muslims.”

Notably, the paper provided no evidence either of Jews’ entering al-Aqsa Mosque or the Dome of the Rock, or of Israeli plans to destroy  al-Aqsa.

Finally, the report cited a Jordanian official who called on the international community and concerned organisations to “help safeguard Islamic and Christian sites in Palestine.” It was not clear if the protection the Jordanians were demanding includes protection for Moslem holy sites from Hamas rockets.

  24. David Darko says:

    Al- aqsa mosque is a Taboo, and should be leveled to the ground.

  25. To be honest if I was in charge in Israel I would dismantle it brick by brick, put it on a low loader or 2 and throw it into Gaza.

  26. The Jewish part of the mount is the part that could be damaged the Arabs will try and ruin it

  27. The mosque on the Temple Mount is an abomination and should be bull dozed and the Third Temple built immediately.

  28. A lot Jordan would do, especially with ISIS getting closer. They will beg Israel for help, if need be. Fu-k the King there.

  29. caryn hope you are right

  30. Oriel Bufton says:

    They’ve told so many lies, the world believes them and they don’t need to provide evidence of anything. There’s an old saying, that if you say something often enough people who at the beginning say I don’t believe that, will eventually believe anything no matter how far fetched it seems.

  31. Joel Gordon says:

    Jordan has nothing to do with the Dome of the rock. They too turn their body away from it and aim at Saudi Arabia’s black box in Mecca.

  33. It’s not unreasonable. They’ve already hit Beit Lechem and the Arab section of Chevron including a Palestinian home. And they are shooting at Y-m.

  34. Better they do it themselves.

  35. Feraco Ed says:

    Jordan can mind its business! Temple Mount belongs to Israel!

  37. Jews have way too much respect for the religion of others to blatantly do something like this. Propaganda to inflame hatred and war.

  39. We should destroy it this so called Mosque does not belong there

  40. We should destroy it this so called Mosque does not belong there

  41. All these Muslims are is a big bunch of cry babies Maybe if they are lucky a rocket will hit the Mosque like they did the power lines going to Gaza.

  42. Take the Temple Mount back. Israel it is yours.

  43. Skid Marks says:

    TO HELL WITH ALL MUZZIES !

  44. Kay Cross says:

    It may even be a lightening strike out of Heaven..or an Earthquake all natural ..

  45. The Mount belongs to the Jews in the first place !

  46. I´m not afraid of them and never will be! We must fear only God, not men like us..

  47. Judith Ross says:

    With the obvious inability to aim these rockets, a rocket could possible destroy the mosque. What will Jordan do then? Maybe open its doors to the Muslims who are originally from Transjordan anyways.

  48. From what I’ve seen, “Arab Press” might as well be printed on “Downy toilet tissue” Investigative reporting in that part of the world means getting the latest propaganda from varied factions, and passing (gas?) off as news!

  49. Jordan needs to worry about ISIS knocking on they’re back door. Showing that dome of the stupid and wouldn’t be funny that Hamas shoots one of their rockets and blows it up. I will be laughing for hours.

    Pray for the Peace of Jerusalem.

  50. In 2 months Jordan is going to be invaded and part of the Califaite so who cares about Jordan.

  51. John Hanson says:

    since Obama was elected we no longer have radical Islam on the run, actually they are bolder than ever, most likely because at the urging of traitor John McCain Obama gave ISIS American weapons

  52. We can always hope and pray it does.

  53. Jane O'grady says:

    Israel has taken care of all the churches and mosques in Jerusalem. The Hamas and Isis are the ones to destroy synagogues and churches. Get the story correct.

  54. Champ Styles says:

    Ohhh so the Palestinians are “victims” again??? Filthy cowards.
