Mk’s Proposal for Equal Access to Temple Mount Is Met with Hysterical Muslim Resistance

OK, so he got carried away a little… But seriously, Israel has been willing to sit down and listen to Palestinian leaders with actual blood on their hands – the least the other side can do is listen to an elected official who’s proposing a respectful, new order.

No go.

In a statement issued on Wednesday, ISESCO condemned the “suggestion by an extreme right-wing Member of the Knesset, Israel’s parliament, that the mosque must be taken down and rebuilt elsewhere in order to build a temple in its place. Aryeh Eldad’s remarks represent incitement to carry out a terrorist and criminal act.”

There you go. Terrorist and criminal. Apparently, those guys were absent from daycare when the whole sharing thing was being discussed.

Maybe MK Eldad should have started out with a bill calling for the dismantling of the mosque and then he could bargain down to equal prayer time. This is the orient, we approach trade differently.

    Good one Yori. In another couple of weeks, during Hodesh Elul, we'll take our shofarot and blow the "Alaska" Mosque down.:-)

  2. Charlie Hall says:

    In its recently released report on religious freedom, The US State Department criticized Israel for prohibiting non-Muslims from praying on the Temple Mount.

    "A government policy since 1967, repeatedly upheld by the Supreme Court and routinely enforced by the police citing security concerns, denies all non-Muslims opportunities to worship at the Temple Mount/Haram al-Sharif. While the government ensured limited access to the Temple Mount/Haram al-Sharif to everyone regardless of religious beliefs, only Muslims are allowed to pray at the site, although their access has been occasionally restricted due to security concerns. Police regulated traffic in and out of the compound and removed non-Muslim visitors if they appeared to be praying. Since 2000 the Jordanian Waqf that manages the site has restricted non-Muslims from entering the Dome of the Rock shrine and Al-Aqsa Mosque. Non-Muslim religious symbols are not allowed to be worn on the Temple Mount/Haram al-Sharif."

    muslims only have 2 speeds dead and hysterical. why the surprise? FUHGEDABOWDIT….Just do what we need to do.

  4. Grace Acosta says:

    Moshiach will take care of the issue for us, SOON AND IN OUR DAYS!

  5. Paul Larudee says:

    I like the proposal for the Palestinian Authority to use the Knesset Building on alternate days.

  6. Atara Kennedy says:

    I guess you skipped over the main point of the article which was that MK Eldad proposed a fair sharing of the Temple Mount and was rebuked in a nonrational manner that falsely asserted Eldad had asked for the Mosque to be rebuilt elsewhere. His fair proposal was:

    “In order to allow freedom of worship and the right to visit the Mount, special visiting days should be established for Jews and Muslims, and hours during which the Mount will be open only to Jews or only to Muslims.”

    The bill suggests a separation that would permit each religious group access to the Temple Mount during their daily prayers. Jews pray three times on weekdays, for on Shabbat, and Muslims have five prayers each day.

    MK Eldad also wants to give each group full access on its holidays. Jews on Rosh Hashanah, Yom Kippur, the first and last days of Sukkot and Passover, Shavuot, and Tisha B’Av; the Muslims on Id al-Fitr, Id al-Adha, and Ashura.

    And what happens when both Jews and Muslims have a holiday on the same day? They should split. says MK Eldad. Half the day to each faith.

  7. Atara Kennedy says:

    People who already hold land at a 649:1 ratio and yet can't allow Israel a time place to exist, a place where it is rooted, should not be expected to share the Temple Mount. Kindergarten anyone?

  8. Yehuda Cohen says:

    I prefer the proposal of shipping all Arabs that hate Jews to Jordan, tear down that murderous mosque and rebuild the Third Temple. All those who hate Jews will not be allowed on the Temple Mount.
    Paul, I am sure that the Palestinian Authority will be able to use the Knesset Building bathrooms for your murderous hatefull people of full of S**t.

  9. Liad Bar-el says:

    Deut.12:2-3 "You must destroy all the sites at which the nations you are to dispossess worshipped their gods, whether on lofty mountains and on hills or under any luxuriant tree. You must tear down their altars, break up their sacred pillars, burn their Asherah trees, and chop down the statues of their gods, obliterating their names from that place."
    IMO, MK Aryeh Eldad suggestion (bill) is not the right one.

  10. Charlie Hall says:

    That applied to idol worshipers. Muslims are not idol worshipers.

  11. Liad Bar-el says:

    Charlie Hall, Muslims bow down to Mecca? Who is buried at Mecca? Muhammad is buried there and he is their idol.
