Leading Muslim Cleric Urges Mass Pilgrimages to Temple Mount

Islamic law is not based on the Quran so much as it based on the Arab world’s struggle to destroy Israel as a Jewish country.

The Muslims are out to show that they far outnumber the Jews on the Temple Mount.

A leading Muslim Brotherhood cleric who previously prohibited Muslims from becoming un-pure by visiting the Temple Mount in “occupied” Jerusalem now has decided they won;t be tainted because they have an opportunity to try to claim Islamic sovereignty over the holy site by mass pilgrimages from the Arab world.

Sheikh Yussef Qaradawi as recently as last year prohibited Arabs from “tainting” themselves by going to the  Al Aqsa mosque on the Temple Mount, but now has reversed himself following the collapse of  U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry’s Peace Talks Charade.

It seems like Islamic law is not based on the Quran so much as it based on the Arab world’s struggle to destroy Israel as a Jewish country.

The sheikh previously has written on sites such as Onislam.net and in an e-book that there is no connection between Jerusalem and Jews, that Jerusalem is “occupied” and that therefore “visits are banned in order to deprive the occupier of legitimacy.”

The cleric, now 85, added, “Those who visit legitimize an entity which plunders Palestinian lands, and are forced to cooperate with the enemy’s embassy to receive a visa. We must feel as though we are banned from Jerusalem and fight for it until it is ours.”

His 180-degree about-face, published in a Jordanian newspaper this week, exposes Islamic law as a convenience store that sells anti-Jewish religious edicts as the word from Allah. Islamic law is whatever a Muslim cleric thinks is politically correct.

In 2009, he said in a sermon during the IDF’s counter-terror  Operation Cast Lead campaign in Gaza, O Allah, take your enemies, the enemies of Islam. O Allah, take the Jews, the treacherous aggressors. “O Allah, take this profligate, cunning, arrogant band of people. O Allah, they have spread much tyranny and corruption in the land. Pour your wrath upon them, O our God. Lie in wait for them…. take this oppressive, Jewish Zionist band of people. O Allah, do not spare a single one of them. O Allah, count their numbers, and kill them, down to the very last one.”

As recently as last September, Qaradawi told Qatar TV, according to a translation supplied by MEMRI, he would not participate in an inter-faith dialogue if Jews were present. “If you invite the Jews, I will not participate,” he stated. “I will participate in a Muslim-Christian meeting, but with the Jews there should be no debate.

“Those Jews have committed clear injustice against us. They have shed our blood, killed our children, displaced our people, seized our lands, and usurped our rights.”

He also has said just as “Allah has imposed upon the Jews people who would punish them for their corruption,… The last punishment was carried out by Hitler…. Allah willing, the next time will be at the hand of the believers.”

This is the same wise Muslim who told anti-Zionist rabbis in 2008, “There is no enmity between Muslims and Jews…. Jews who believe in the authentic Torah are very close to Muslims. Muslims are against the expansionist, oppressive Zionist movement, not the Jews.”

That was before the Arab world finally saw that Israel, after 20 years of concessions to the Palestinian Authority, after erasing almost every red line this side of the Temple Mount, and after releasing nearly 100 murderers the past year, finally said “Dayenu,” – enough.

The sudden appearance of Jews standing up for themselves was a bit of shock for U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry but it was expected by Mahmoud Abbas and the Arab world.

While ostensibly holding out hope that both pressure from the Obama administration and the European Union and the threat of recognition of a Palestinian Authority state by the United Nations would bend Israel’s will to exist, Abbas and the Arab League carefully set out Plan B.

That included announcing unity with Hamas, renewing a bid to join more United Nations organizations, and taking Israel to the Intentional Court for supposed war crimes, such as defending itself against missile attacks and allowing Arabs to work in Jewish-run factories.

Now Qaradawi has invented the secrets of Allah an  thrown his fatwa on top of a pile of re-written history that the Jewish Temples never existed.

Irked by the increasing stream of Jews visiting, or trying to visit, the Temple Mount. he announced a fatwa in Doha at the “International Conference for the Defense of Jerusalem.” Signed by himself and 38 other brain-twisted Muslim clerics posing as scholars, it states that “visiting Al-Aqsa Mosque under the occupation” is now kosher, or make that halal, but visitors should spend their money only at Palestinian Authority Arab facilities.

That presumably means the visiting Muslims cannot play the Israeli lottery, ride the Jerusalem light rail system or buy a Coca-Cola made in Bnei Brak.

Qaradawi has shown Kerry that the past nine months of PR for the Obama administration dealt with everything except the real core issue – religion.

The “dispute over land” is a ruse.

The Oslo Accords are a ruse.

The Arab world is finally unveiling the truth that its dispute with Israel is not only over the existence of Israel but also is over the existence of Judaism, a platform that Islam never dominated the entire Muslim world in the past – before to re-establishment of the State of Israel.

Independence Day is next week, and Israel still is fighting for it.
