WAR OVER PEACE

The Palestinian Authority is circumventing “peace talks” and intensifying incitement over the Temple Mount, warning of a “religious war” while Fatah terrorists announce they plan Erev Yom Kippur attacks on Jews throughout Israel.

A Knesset minster fueled Muslim outrage by performing the Priestly Blessing there on Wednesday.

Jewish activists promoting visits to the Temple Mount have escalated their campaign, and Israel’s senior police official announced a dramatic turnaround in his attitude, categorically stating that Jews  have a right to pray at Judaism’s most holy site.

Israeli police chief Yohanan Danino said visiting the holy compound was “an undisputed right for Jews,” reflecting recent notations by the High Court that the prohibition against Jews to enter is discriminatory. It also has more than hinted that Jews have a right to pray there.

The Chief Rabbinate has ruled that Jews are not allowed to ascend the Temple Mount because of issues of impurity where the Holy Temples once stood, but many national religious rabbis and some Haredim have concluded that visits are permitted in particular areas.

The most prominent visitor this week was Housing Minister Ariel, who arrived at the site on Wednesday under heavy guard less than three days before the Yom Kippur holiday begins Friday night. Approximately 100 yeshiva students accompanied him, according to the Bethlehem-based Ma’an News Agency.

Ariel, a Kohen,  not only visited but he also committed the ultimate in in the eyes of Muslims by performing the Priestly Blessing for Jerusalem City Council candidate Dov Kalmanovitz.

A Music cleric went bananas and called for police to stop this terrible crime, an offense to Muslims all over the world.

Ariel’s visit revealed some real crimes on the Temple Mount, such as Muslim construction there without a  building permit.

The Jewish delegation left the site after approximately 45 minutes.

Ma’an reported that Sheikh Ekrima Sabri, Head of the Islamic Higher Commission warned of “Israeli ambitions” to allow Jews as well as Arabs to pray at the site. Ariel makes no bone about his desire that Israel take sovereignty over the Temple Mouton and allows Jews to pray there.

“This is an invitation to a religious war in the region, and official encouragement urging the extremist Jewish groups to storm al-Aqsa Mosque and ruin it,” the PA ministry warned.

Following PA  Mahmoud Abbas  policy of preaching peace while inciting violence, the Al-Aqsa Martyrs’ Brigades threatened that it has given the “green light” for attacks on Friday, the day before Yom Kippur.

Referring to the Temple Mount, the Brigades denounced  what it said has been “an invasion of herds of settlers to the compound and (they) harm the worshippers without any intervention from the international community.”

Muslim official also stepped up this week the rejection that Jews have any connection with the Temple Mount and rejected the announced discovery of Jewish gold coins near the Temple Mount as a hoax.

The Al Aqsa Foundation of Waqf and Heritage has categorically rejected Israeli claims that rare golden “Jewish treasures” labeled the discovery “as an attempt to support Israeli claims about Jewish rights in the holy city and to impose Israeli sovereignty on the occupied holy compound through the use of fake evidence,” Gulf News reported.

Israeli archaeologists discovered a treasure chest of 36 gold coins from the Byzantine era and a gold medallion with a menorah.

“An immediate Arab and Muslim campaign is needed to stop the Israeli attempts to Judaize the holy city of Jerusalem,” said the statement. “Excavations and findings of Israeli institutions in the holy city are not objective,” said the statement, because the archaeologists are “enthusiastic servants of Zionist ideology.”

It added, “Many of those who conduct excavations on the boundaries of Al Aqsa Holy Compound have been involved in major operations to fake history, and those excavators have been taking advantage of the excavations and findings to prove their Torah theories and claims.”

U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry can rest assured that Palestinian Authority negotiator Saeb Erekat is not talking with his Israeli counterpart Tzipi Livni about the Temple Mount in their American-orchestrated “secret talks.”

They are talking about borders and security, but Kerry does not understand that the Palestinian Authority, always being careful to abide by the strictest religious opinions, will depend on the Chief Rabbinate’s ruling that Jews cannot pray on the Temple Mount.

  4. Yechiel Baum says:

    Where is the Jewish outrage and revenge for Arab placement of a dirty mosque in our holy of holies delaying the coming of the Messiah which is their aim.
    Will they next forbid us to pray in the Shuls? Is everyone my boss?

  5. Eileen Gindin Spiegel says:

    just more lies. Underneath their “holy” temple lies ours, which obviously was there first. They prey to Mecca first, not Jerusalem. more conspiracy to spread around the world.

  6. Stuart Wragg says:

    Jerusalem a Muslim holy city? Was JErusalem then only established int the 7th century when Mohammed started his religion? I take it tha King David then (according to the learned and honest and honourable PA) never established Jerusalem or perhaps he was an Arab. This would explain their claim. Jerusalem in their Quran? Jerusalem in their music? The only way they honour the Temple is by throwing rocks and idolatry worship. Jerusalem will always be a Jewsh City. The Temple MOunt is a Jewish Holy Site. Those who do not support that are those who are against the truth.

  7. Sean De Nobrega says:

    Gee Stu, never knew you converted to Judaism? And orthodox to boot. Lol.

  8. Stuart Wragg says:

    Nah, just getting seriously miffed with those particular Arabs. I know history and truth and it really boils my Marine blood when that is messed with. I also love Israel as well to be honest and am standing up for my Jewish friends. Cant have my buds being messed with or I might as well join the Navy. We need to catch up sometime boet.

  9. Sean De Nobrega says:

    All religions are messed up my Friend. Everyone invokes their god to smite their enemy. You should know that winners write the history. Just keep objective.

  10. The day must come when there will be no islam and every 'mosque' will be gone from Zion; soon, may it be so and we pray that it happen in our lifetime! There is no room in Greater Israel for the idolators with their head banging on the floor and murder in their hearts!

  11. Tim Upham says:

    This is so stupid. There is room for everybody on Temple Mount. Why should it have to be this medieval religious war, where one side drives off the other.

  12. Eva Feld says:

    Too stupid for words. There is no tolerance on either side no compassion no consideration or respect. There is enough room for everyone to pray and keep the place holy. No one wants to give in or grow up! Enough's enough already.

  13. ChaiGuy53 says:

    Handing over the Temple Mount to the Arab Waqf was the worst
    mistake of 1967.It telegraphed to the
    world, and especially to the Arab world, that it’s not important to us Jews.After all who would give his most valuable possession
    to his sworn enemy?This gesture confirmed in the Arabs’ minds that
    the Jews don’t really belong here and are foreign invaders. And this belief has motivated them to fight on
    until the Jews are driven out – no matter how long it takes.
    Israel must take full possession of the Temple Mount and declares
    to the World that the Jewish People are back from exile and will remain here
    forever.  This will be the first step towards persuading the Arabs that the Jews really
    do belong here and it will be the start of the long road towards eventual reconciliation
    and acceptance by the Arab world.

  14. Yechiel Baum says:

    It is offensive for the Arabs to be in Jerusalem since the Saudi's don't let them go to Mecca nor Medina so to keep out the Palestinian garbage, they were deposited from Jordan and Egypt to Israel and told them to pray in Jerusalem as an offense to the Jews.
    How about putting these Arabs at the Saudi border and this will settle the problem!

    Moreover, expel the mufti for incitement to riot since he is not above the law as a guest in the Jewish State of Israel.

    Let do this right once and for all. Does the pope order for riots in Italy when they voted for homosexuality?

  15. hildee says:

    the greatest problem with the Islamics and the Israeli’s is:    the muslims believe it was Ishmael who Abraham took to the mount to sacrifice when it really was the promised One called Isaac..Abraham and Sarah disobeyed God by running a head of God and Sarah giving her maid Hagar to Abraham..my all the confusion that has caused the world..there is a price and consequence for disobedience..
