Hamas Calls Teaneck Jews on Temple Mount ‘Settlers’ (Video)

Arabs say so often that Jews are trying to re-build the Temple that they might end up convincing Jews to do it.

Israeli soldiers  “escorted” more than 150 Jewish settlers to “defile the holy Aqsa Mosque in occupied Jerusalem” on Wednesday, according to the official Hamas terrorist organization’s website.

The “settlers” included “male and female conscripts and policemen in plain clothes [who] broke into the Aqsa Mosque.

Hamas added, “The notorious rabbi Yehuda Glick, who champions demolishing the Aqsa Mosque to build the third temple in its place, was among the settlers who roamed the Aqsa courtyards and the Dome of the Rock.”

What is most interesting about their little blurb is that most of it is essentially true, except for a few code words, and reflects a drastic change in police policies towards IDF soldiers visiting the Temple Mount.

First the facts. The Jews, of course, did not “break in” the mosque. Any Jew who visits the Temple Mount always is accused of defiling it, breaking in, storming, invading or occupying the site, according to the Fatah propaganda machine in Ramallah as well as Hamas in Gaza. On that, Mahmoud Abbas and his brethren in Hamas are in full agreement, so it should never be said that the two rival “resistance” movements have nothing in common.

As for the “settlers,” any Jew living in under a Zionist entity, as radical Muslims like to call Israel so they won’t have to mention the cursed name, is a “settler” in the terminology of the “resistance.”

Rabbi Yehuda Glick explained to The Jewish Press Thursday that in fact there were approximately 100 female soldiers from the Education Corps visiting the Temple Mount earlier this week, the largest group he can remember.

The other “settlers” besides Rabbi Glick, who lives in Otniel, located in the southern Hebron Hills between Be’er Sheva and Kiryat Arab-Hevron, were 35 orthodox Jews from the Rinat Israel synagogue in Teaneck, New Jersey.

So it appears that most of the readers of The Jewish Press, out there in New York, Miami, Los Angeles, East Podunk and all points in between, also are settlers.

Welcome to the club.

The sight of Israeli soldiers visiting the Temple Mount is relatively new. Rabbi Glick said that until two years ago, police would not allow any uniformed soldiers to visit the holy site.

All that changed with the help of Knesset Member Tzipi Hotovely of the Likud and then-MK Aryeh Eldad of the National Union party that later merged into the Jewish Home, causing Eldad to form his own party.

Rabbi Glick said that one of the officers on the Temple Mount invited him to say a few words to the soldiers to explain the history of the Temple Mount.

The Arabs were relatively quiet, except for the usual screaming,  \hollering and cursing of Jews.

He explained that he was told the reason might be that the Arabs are on some kind of vacation this month.

  1. I hope they do. Other religions have been allowed to reclaim and rebuild their holiest sites, why not us? The mosque currently located there is of little to no relevance for the religion of Islam, so there is no rational reason to not reclaim and rebuild the temple.

  2. O que mais me deixa estarrecida, e que se analisarmos no contexto da história judaica, o monte é um lugar sagrado para o judeus, vemos passagens na Torah que dão prova disto, Enquanto para os islão não existe nenhuma passagem no Alcorão que ateste a importância do monte para ele.
    Não vejo o porque dos árabes impedirem a construção do 3° templo.

  3. This is important. Hamas added, ”The notorious rabbi Yehuda Glick, who champions demolishing the Aqsa Mosque to build the third temple in its place, was among the settlers who roamed the Aqsa courtyards and the Dome of the Rock.”

    The third temple? So they admit that there were two Jewish temples before the Dome of the Rock was built. In essence, they admit that this was a Jewish, religious site, which pre-dates their own religious site. Since all Muslims disavow their ties to the Judaic religion, they have no claim to the ancestral lands, including the holy sites of the Jewish people.

    The Al Aqsa mosque is important to Islam though. Since they can't refute the truth with their own "truths", it's easier for them to kill those that they can't win an argument against. Muhammad didn't have the ability to hunt down all the infidels at the time though, so he invented a story that linked Jerusalem to his own holiness. This way, rather than fighting against Judaism and trying to explain how Judaism is a false religion in which his religion was based, he could simply plant weeds where a rose once stood, and as long as others had never seen or smelled a rose, they wouldn't know the difference. Conquest 101: Build your churches over the churches of the ones you wish to conquer…cultural conquest is important if you want to build any empire.

    We all know who the land belongs to and who belongs to the land. Even die-hard Muslims can't escape the truth that long before Muhammad, there was a religion and a people who lived in and around Jerusalem. They only want to bury the past so they can re-invent it. The western world knows it too, but the west would allow that past to be buried as well, as long as it brings them peace, but Conquest only brings peace to those who serve under its hooves and heels – or those that fall underneath them.

  4. Rebekah says:

    The Christians in the west DO NOT support Muslims bullying, bombing or banashing the Jews from THEIR LAND. Nor do we believe Israel should give up more land (THAT has never brought peace). Just because our current president doesn’t support you please don’t believe this is a reflection of “the average believer” or a reflection of the US. NOT TRUE. Many pray for Israel daily. Muslims were not given or promised that land! Jews were….stop giving up what G-d gave you!

  5. in 1924 the Muslims had a "guide" to the Temple Mount. 2 facts 1. Jerusalem belongs as the Capital to Israel 2. The 2nd temple was "partial" on this site & showed the Underground stables of the Crusaders…a game of darkness vs LIGHT.NO one shall stand but the CREATOR who has know the ending before the beginning …

  6. Avram Levitt says:

    As someone who was a part of that group, I feel it is important to add a few things:

    We did not go anywhere near the Dome of the Rock; Jewish law prohibits use from entering where the first two Temples stood. The part at the end of the video where we were taking pictures was as close as we got.

    We were not disturbed at all during our visit. There was no "screaming, hollering, and cursing of the Jews" as this article says there was.

    I think the Waqf officer that was attached to our group understood when our guide was saying phrases of prayer, and pointedly didn't intervene.
