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.
