MK Ahmed Tibi Tells Police to Expel Jews from Temple Mount

Tuesday, July 28th, 2015

Israeli Arab MK Ahmed Tibi urged police at the Temple Mount on Tuesday to expel visiting Jewish tourists as their group passed the delegation of Arab Knesset members touring the holy site.

During his visit, Tibi ordered police to “Throw them out. Thrown them out,” as a number of obviously observant Jewish men wearing yarmulkas and other Jewish tourists neared the delegation and was about to pass by.

The incident can be seen in the below video, courtesy of the Hebrew-language NRG news site, with Tibi’s orders to police appearing above the frame in Hebrew language at 00.19 in the footage.

You can skip past the commercial in the beginning:

It is not clear what decision was finally made by the police and other security personnel at the scene; what is patently clear is that considerable frantic discussion was devoted to the order while police quickly ushered the Jewish group past the delegation.

More than half of the currently serving Israeli Arab parliamentarians ascended to the Temple Mount to protest a visit to the ancient site on Sunday by Agriculture Minister Uri Ariel for Tisha B’Av, a day which marks the destruction of the two ancient Jewish Holy Temples in Jerusalem, among other national Jewish tragedies.

Israeli Arab Knesset members maintain that Ariel’s visit was a “provocation.”

The Arab lawmakers were accompanied on their tour by an Arab mob chanting “Allahu Akbar! Allahu Akbar!” The phrase, which means “God is Great” in Arabic, is used in context by jihadists as the ancient Islamic holy war cry. It is also used by Arab terrorists prior to an attack, and by Arab rioters at the Temple Mount as they hurl rocks and other weapons at Jews and Israeli police.

Among the Knesset members who participated in the visit were List chairman MK Ayman Odeh and MKs Masoud Ganaim, Jamal Zahalka, Ahmed Tibi, Hanin Zoabi, Abd al-Hakim Hajj Yahya, Osama Sa’adi and Yousef Jabareen. According to the Hebrew-language NRG news site, the Arab lawmakers also met with members of the Waqf Islamic Authority along with the Grand Mufti of Jerusalem, Muhammed Hussein.

The delegation told the media they were protesting “police brutality” at the Mount – this, following Sunday’s vicious attack on Israeli and Waqf security personnel by rioting Arab “worshipers” from inside the Al Aqsa mosque.

“There is nothing more natural than the fact that the mosque belongs to Muslims, the synagogue belongs to the Jews and the church belongs to Christians,” said MK Ayman Odeh following the visit. “It is a trivial thing and very natural,” Rotter.net reported.

“Minister Uri Ariel is a government minister, not a settler, and when he arrives for a provocative visit to the Al Aqsa Mosque, it’s a statement,” Odeh continued.

“When he ascends to the Mount and the government does not condemn it, it means the government wants to raise the political issue of the religious conflict in Jerusalem between Muslims and Jews.”

Freed Islamic Jihad Terror Hunger Striker Re-arrested

Wednesday, July 15th, 2015

Freed Palestinian Islamic Jihad terrorist Khader Adnan, released on Sunday from an Israeli prison by virtue of having carried out a 56-day hunger strike, managed to get himself re-arrested the next day — literally within hours.

Adnan was again arrested by Monday because he illegally entered the Old City of Jerusalem in an attempt to access the Al Aqsa mosque on the Temple Mount. This week is the final week in the Islamic holy month of Ramadan.

Numerous Jews are also arrested each month for illegally attempting to access the holy site as well. The Temple Mount is the holiest site in Judaism, and the third holiest site in Islam.

According to Israel Police spokesperson Micky Rosenfeld, Adnan is “an Islamic Jihad activist and is prohibited for this reason from entering Israeli territory.”

He was released within a few hours, and sent back to his Palestinian Authority hometown of Jenin, in Samaria.

No Entry to Jews on Temple Mount for 10 Days

Tuesday, July 7th, 2015

The Temple Mount in the Old City of Jerusalem is closed to Jews for the next ten days in observance of the final third of the Islamic holy month of Ramadan and its culminating holiday, Eid al-Fitr.

The notice says that due to the final ten days of the Islamic holy month of Ramadan, the Temple Mount will be closed until after the final Islamic holiday of Eid al-Fitr to all but Muslims, and offers and apology. There is no English translation provided for tourists.

The notice says that due to the final ten days of the Islamic holy month of Ramadan, the Temple Mount will be closed until after the final Islamic holiday of Eid al-Fitr to all but Muslims, and offers and apology. There is no English translation provided for tourists.

The message notifying Israelis they would not be allowed to enter the site was posted in Hebrew, and no English-language translation was written alongside. This made it clear that (1) the prohibition is specific to Israeli Jews, and (2) the Israeli government is clearly aware of just how antithetical to a democratic society such a decision, and would appear to foreign tourists.

Israel has allowed hundreds of Palestinian Authority Arabs from Judea, Samaria, Gaza and even from abroad to cross the pre-1967 border to access the site to pray at the Al Aqsa mosque. As happens ever year during Ramadan, there have then followed a number of violent riots by those same Muslim worshipers, due to the Islamic clerics who incite their followers into a frenzy of hatred with their sermons, prompting Israeli police to then close the Temple Mount to Jewish and other visitors.

For years, various lawmakers have tried to end this vicious cycle by proposing legislation that would put an end to closing the Temple Mount in response to riots: rather, the site would be closed to the rioters instead.

The site is believed to be the location of the Holy of Holies of both the First and Second Temples in Jerusalem, the holiest site in Judaism, and also the third holiest site in Islam.

After its restoration to Israel in the 1967 Six Day War, Israel agreed as a gesture of peace to allow its former Jordanian occupier to maintain control over the Islamic holy site. The Islamic Waqf Authority continues to administer control over the site to this day, although Israel Police and other Israeli security personnel hold the ultimate authority over the area.

Pre-Occupied UN Human Rights Council Debates One Issue – Israel

Monday, June 29th, 2015

Iran and Syria headlined the wolf pack verbal assault on Israel at today’s 29th session of the U.N. Human Rights Council’s pre-occupation with the “occupation.”

This is the first time I ever have watched this much-talked about about circus, but none of the previous reports of the Council’s Israel bashing could have prepared anyone for what must be described as a humanitarian disaster.

Country after country attacked Israel for apartheid, occupation, violation of human rights and freedom, searches on the Al Aqsa mosque on the Temple Mount, crimes and the violations of human rights. Morocco claimed that Israel is harming the “Islamic identity” of Jerusalem.

Qatar’s representative stated that Israel is not serious about peace, and charged that Israeli forces “have taken control of the third flotilla that was going to Gaza.”

Syria alleged that Israel is supporting terrorists in the Golan Heights, with the backing of the United States.

Saudi Arabia’s official noted that Israel ignores “any human rights norms” but that “many countries” do not condemn Israel, making the Council powerless to “give rights back to Palestinians under occupation.”

And the Palestinian Authority? It said that Israel is the biggest violator in the world of human rights.

China said the “Palestinian issue” is the “heart” of problems in the Middle East.

And in other news this week, Iran has passed a bill that allows men to marry their adopted children to protect their daughters from being married off.

According to Amnesty, Iran also made a retrogressive amendment in Iran’s new Code of Criminal Procedures, limiting the right to access an independent lawyer of one’s choice during primary investigations in certain criminal cases.

In Syria, Assad’s forces killed 13 civilians and wounded dozens of others in a barrel bomb attack.

Christian Today reported Monday:

Things have taken a turn for the worse for Asia Bibi, 50, the falsely accused Christian woman who has been languishing in Pakistani prison for six years now despite her declining health.

Bibi was accused of blasphemy in Pakistan for sharing her faith in God to other women, according to Bruce Allen of Forgotten Missionaries International. She was then sentenced to death, although an appeal has been filed at the Supreme Court with no news yet on when her case will be heard.

And in Saudi Arabia, the ministry said it support internationally recognized human rights but not those that are specific to homosexuals.

As noted above, today is the first time I ever watched the live video of the United Nations so-called Human Rights Council.

God willing, this will be the last time, also.

Freedom of Worship on Temple Mount: Gazan Arabs, 190; Jews, 0

Sunday, June 7th, 2015

The score was 190-0 for freedom of worship for Arabs from Gaza and zero for Jews on Friday.

Israel allowed nearly 200 Gazans, all over the age of 60, to pray at the mosque on the Temple Mount, eight months after 500 Arabs from Gaza prayed there for the first time since 2007, according to the Ma’an News Agency, based in Bethlehem.

The last time Israel allowed Jews to pray regularly at the Temple Mount was nearly 2,000 years ago, during the time of the Second Temple, which a growing number of Muslim clerics like to pretend never existed.

Permission for Arabs from Gaza to travel to Jerusalem and pray at the Al Aqsa mosque is part of the last year’s ceasefire between Hamas and Israel that was supposed to end the most recent barrage of missile attacks on Israel.

Hamas again broke the ceasefire on Saturday with rocket launches against Israel but blamed them on rival terrorist groups.

Israel continues to honor its end of the ceasefire and allows Gazans to pray at the Temple Mount mosque, where Hamas banners and even Islamic State (ISIS) banners frequently fly amid sermons that preach jihad against Jews, all in the name of freedom of worship, if you are not Jewish.

 

Jerusalem Arabs Planned to Attack Feiglin and Glick on Temple Mount

Saturday, November 29th, 2014

Partially released for publication (Additional information related to the planned attack is expected to be released in the coming days):

Three eastern Jerusalem Arabs were indicted Friday for plotting to attack Knesset Member Moshe Feiglin and Rabbi Yehuda Glick on the Temple Mount last month, the day before another Jerusalem Arab tried to kill Glick.

The indictment was filed in Jerusalem on Friday against three Arabs, one of them, age 18 and the others 20 and 21 years old. They planned to stay overnight at the holy site and attack with fireworks and rocks when Glick and Feiglin were planning to visit the next morning, October 30. The day before, Glick was nearly fatally shot after he spoke at the Begin Center in Jerusalem.

The terrorists’ plan was that during an ensuing riot, they would flee to the Al Aqsa mosque and then walk away, untouched among a throng of Muslims.

Police had kept the arrests of the three Arabs under cover until Friday, which helps explain why National Police Commissioner Yohanan Danino and Public Security Minister Yitzchak Aharonovitch have been so adamant that Knesset Members not visit the Temple Mount.

The MK’s presence only riles up Arab terrorists and makes trouble for the police. If you can eliminate the cause for attempted murder, then there won’t be murders.

The only problem with this scenario, as most of our readers know, is that telling Arab crazies that Knesset Members cannot visit the Temple Mount has the opposite effect and gives them the incentive to plan attacks on any Jew who dares arrive at the site.

The reason for violence is not Knesset Members who visit the Temple Mount.

The reason for violence is that the security and court system allows them to be violent.

 

The Jordanian Menace

Sunday, November 23rd, 2014

“We have warned repeatedly that Israel is playing with fire.” – Abdullah II, Jordan (2010)

“Our martyrs, among the people of Gaza, are alive, finding their sustenance in the presence of their Lord,” God willing. The pain and suffering that we have been witnessing and living through during this aggression, which has indiscriminately taken the lives of innocent people, refutes Israel’s claims that the war is justified. First and foremost, Israel is responsible for the aggression on the strip.” – Abdullah II reflects on Israel’s “Operation Protective Edge” (Al Ghad Interview, 2014)

I was going to take a short break from writing about Israeli politics. A brief reprieve from beating the proverbial carcass. I had another ambition this week. I wanted to share a little bit of my passion for Israel’s wildlife by writing an article on striped hyenas. But as I sat down at my computer, I couldn’t get the image of the Jordanian “king,” Abdullah II, out of my head. True to Hashemite form, while Arabs murder and maim our brothers and sisters with minivans, knives, and screwdrivers, Abdullah regurgitates his blood libel of “Israeli aggression.” While Har Habayit burns with Arab incitement and Wakf inspired Jew-hatred, Netanyahu debases himself by sitting down in Amman with this fiend. Anyone with a modicum of Jewish dignity cringes at this image. So I will defer the topic of scavenging hyenas for another week, and instead I will write about Hashemite vipers.

In truth, Abdullah needn’t fear anything. Netanyahu has no intention of destroying Al Aqsa Mosque or the Dome of the Rock. There are no Likud blueprints for building the Third Temple. Netanyahu assured the fictitious king that he will continue the status quo on the Temple Mount. The enduring demeaning policy of self-imposed dhimmitude, which prohibits Jews from asserting our religious-national rights on the sacred spot where the first and second Jewish temples stood.

I have always harbored a special loathing for the Hashemite kingdom. Abdullah II is a vicious anti-Semite in the mold of his chameleon father, who learned to switch his military fatigues and keffiyah for a suit whenever he was in the company of a western audience. Just like his father, he learned to wear a mask. At every opportunity this chutzpadik monster bashes Israel. His whole kingdom is built on historical falsehood, and yet he dares to speak of a “Palestinian State!”

Jordan. A mythical country. A crime of national theft crystalized into a fact. A country illegally formed on Jewish land courtesy of the duplicitous British. A country where more than 3/4ths (at the very least) of her citizens are supposed “Palestinians” who all drip with Jew-hatred. Despite the crime of stealing land from Israel, the Jordanians lead the pack when it comes to demanding that Israel create another Palestinian state. An illegal one already exists under the Hashemites.

Jordan. A country whose religious and cultural incitement against Jews equals Egypt’s, Israel’s other “ally” in the Arab world. Another purportedly moderate Arab country where the blood libel is as strong as in rural Poland. During Operation Cast Lead and the more recent Operation Protective Edge, Jordanian citizens came out in hordes to support Hamas. Jordan is nursed on the poison milk of Amalek. Jordanian TV is a sewer of pornographic Jew hatred. Jordanians match Egypt in terms of Jew-hatred (and not to mention copies of “The Protocols” circulating the country). Jordan is a country where Jews are most unwelcome. Israel ignores every Jordanian outrage because if this “peace-treaty” fails, the myth of Arab/Islamic tolerance will shatter.

The truth. The “peace treaty” with Jordan is about as authentic as the one Rabin signed with the PLO, and the one Begin signed with Sadat. And just like the treaty with Egypt where Sadat introduced the clever tactic of “phased destruction” to the Arab world, the goals are the same. And just as repugnant.
