PA Propaganda on Temple Mount Makes Anti-Zionism Inevitable

PA newspapers and website routinely tell its readers how “fanatical” Jews and police “storm” the Temple Mount with the explicit aim of taking it over. Even if Arabs want peace, their leaders won’t let them believe it is possible.

The Palestinian Authority’s official website again has disseminated inciting anti-Israel propaganda focusing on the supposed Jewish plot to take over the Temple Mount.

Calling the Israelis on the Temple Mount ”fanatics,” the WAFA site quoted Muslim Waqf officials that the Jews “were escorted by police, held prayer rituals and destroyed olive branches in the yards in a clear provocative manner to the feelings of the hundreds of Muslims who were on the site and who reacted yelling Allah Akbar (God is great) in Arabic.

“Israeli fanatics are increasing their provocative tours of the Muslim compound to create daily presence there with a goal to eventually take it over and build their temple on the ruins of al-Aqsa Mosque and the Dome of the Rock.”

There is at least one statement in the propaganda that is correct. Jews do indeed offend the sensibilities by ascending the Temple Mount. Then again, the very presence of Jews in the Old City, let alone all of Israel, is offensive to the Palestinian Authority.

The allegations that the Jews “held prayer rituals” is nothing less than an outrageous lie. Jews trying to pray on the Temple Mount wish it were true, but Muslim officials constantly monitor all Jews at the Temple Mount and, with police cooperation, do not allow Jewish visitors to bring with them any prayer books or any other Jewish symbols.

Police often remove Jews for even moving their lips, despite admonitions by the Supreme Court.

The Palestinian Authority is committed to halt all incitement against Israel, a promise which the United States claims it has faithfully upheld.

PA media at least twice a week, if not more, report that police have “stormed” the Temple Mount and that every Jewish action there is intended to prepare for rebuilding the Holy Temple.

If that were true, it would mean a lot of employment for hundreds of Muslim Arab workers.

  1. Am so sick of PA propaganda, just throw a well written history book at Abbas, I would not advise the Bible, Torah or Talmud, since Islam nicked most of their religion from these three plus practices and rituals carried out under Baal. Recommend Penguin Atlas of Ancient History page 20-21, Penguin Atlas of Ancient Egypt page 8 – 9 giving Timelines King Saul ascended the throne in 1030 BCE under the 19th Dynasty of Egypt, who were definitely not Islamic or even Christian as this time. For peats sake Abbas just capitulate, get a post in the Kneset, throw out Hamas, Fatah and that nutcase Salah in Northern Israel, this is so much BS. I'm loosing my patience with Abbas and his phoney peace talks. Good thing I'm not PM of Israel we would never have returned land for peace, we would have fought till the end and sent those arabs packing back to Jordan, Araby and anywhere else they came from. Those who are no problem enjoy Israeli citizenship and the benefits this entails. Enough Pallywood.
