Who Is Occupying the Temple Mount?

Monday, July 18th, 2016

This must be shared and the truth must be told. Maybe if enough people see it, we can bring about some much needed change.

It seems the world is so caught up in hypocrisy, that when someone tells the actual truth and exposes the ugly hypocrisy, they are often shunned and called an extremist.

Anti-Israel activists often charge Israel with being an “Apartheid” State. The Arab citizens, doctors, lawyers, teachers, policemen / women, soldiers, parliament members and Supreme Court judges would easily prove this charge libelous and there is no excuse for anyone who is educated and honest to to be fooled by this often used piece of anti Israel propaganda.

BUT…

They say in every lie there is a grain of truth.

It is difficult for me to write these words because it is our own Jewish government that upholds an apartheid like behavior that would be considered anti-Semitic if carried out in any other country.

The Temple Mount is currently being occupied by an Islamic mosque and a shrine.

Let me elaborate on that point, Muslims built a mosque and a shrine on the Jewish Temple Mount and we are the occupiers?

As if that is not insulting enough, the Mufti has demanded that the State of Israel prohibit Jews from praying on the Temple Mount.

One would think the Israeli government would have laughed this anti-Semitic request out of the Knesset, right?

WRONG!

Believe it or not, Israel has agreed to this racist anti-Semitic demand.

Once again, people’s freedoms are suspended in order not to offend radical Islamic ideology.

Why aren’t the liberals up in arms about the lack of religious rights and freedom in Jerusalem?

Not only is Israel enforcing this racist policy, WE are doing so with the utmost tenacity. Several days ago, someone photoshopped himself on the Temple Mount holding a flag. There would have been no problem if the person was an Arab with a Jordanian or an Arab flag, but it was a Jew who was holding an Israeli flag. This Jew posted his photoshopped picture on Facebook and before you can say ‘THIS IS INSANE’, Israeli police showed up at this door to arrest him for waving an Israeli flag on the Temple Mount.

First of all, the picture was photoshopped!

Second, even if it was real, what the %^& is illegal about waving the country’s flag on the Jewish holiest site!

THIS is why we are not winning this war on terror. We are not only ignoring terrorist demands, we are actually agreeing to them!

So, I’m reposting a picture I found on JewishPress.com! Is ‘big brother watching?

Not allowing Jews to pray on the Temple Mount is a law that reminds me of darker times in Jewish history. To have our own government, in Israel, uphold such an antisemitic law is shameful!

What can we expect from the world when this is what we do to ourselves!

(The Temple Mount WAS in our hands)

Well, it was, till we decided to give it away… shameful!

Israel Bars Two Arabs From Leaving Country over Security Concerns

Thursday, June 16th, 2016

by Jonathan Benedek

Interior Minister Aryeh Deri (Shas) on Thursday signed an order temporarily preventing two Arabs, Mesbah Mesbah Abu Sabih Sabih and Mohammed Yassin Sabah Yassin, from leaving Israel.

Minister Deri released a statement saying he exercised his authority to prevent these individuals’ exit in light of information he received that their departure would pose a threat to national security. The two Palestinians were allegedly planning to incite violence in Jerusalem as well as to meet with terrorists abroad.

Abu Sabih Sabih, a resident of Jerusalem who is a prominent Hamas activist and a leader of the Al-Shabab Al-Aqsa organization that aims to “defend” the Temple Mount from Jews and other non-Muslims, was planning to travel to Jordan.

As to Yasin Sabih, who is suspected of involvement in terrorist activity, Israeli security suspected that he would present a national security threat outside Israel. There was also concern that his departure from the country would be used to promote unrest in Jerusalem, as well as in Judea and Samaria, via the al-Hirak al-Shabab youth movement.

The ban will hold for at least one month and may be extended to as long as six months.

Where are All the Leftwing, Jewish Guardians of Peace?

Tuesday, June 7th, 2016

On Sunday we saw Jews beautifully singing and dancing through the gates of Jerusalem – on Jerusalem Day.

We also saw leftwing Jews desperately searching the crowds for even a single violent or loudmouthed Jew, so they could show off to the world how bad we Jews must be.

They failed.

Turns out the leftwingers showed up on the wrong day.

On Monday evening, the first night of Ramadan, the Islamists had their turn to sing and chant at the Damascus Gate.

Their chants were less peaceful. They started with “Allahu Ahkbar” – what they almost always yell before stabbing a Jew, and then moving on to “With blood and fire we will redeem Al Aqsa“.

Where were the Tag Meir people, to hand them some flowers, and to tell them to be peaceful and think happy thoughts?

Where are all the Leftists, to film the Islamic calls to violence against Jews?

Apparently it’s not so interesting when Jews aren’t involved.

Or maybe they are too afraid to show up near a crowd of Islamists.

Liberman Opens Crossings Between Palestinian Authority, Gaza and Israel for Ramadan

Saturday, June 4th, 2016

Defense Minister Avigdor Liberman has opened the gates, so to speak, to allow almost completely free movement between the Palestinian Authority and Israel during Ramadan this year.

IDF Maj.-Gen. Yoav Mordechai, Coordinator of Government Activities in the Territories (COGAT) issued a statement late Friday noting the move was Israel’s “civil policy to improve the quality of life for Arabs citizens of the Palestinian Authority in Judea, Samaria and Gaza, including the maintenance of their freedom of religion.”

The policy – recommended first by IDF Chief of Staff Lt.-Gen. Gadi Eizenkot – comes in advance of the start of the Islamic holy month of Ramadan which begins Sunday night.

Under the policy, Arabs in Judea and Samaria will be able to enter Israel for visits with relatives and to worship Friday at the Al Aqsa Mosque on the Temple Mount in Jerusalem.

In addition they will be able to travel overseas via Ben Gurion International airport, and also be allowed to visit relatives in Gaza as well.

Gazans living abroad will be able to fly in via Ben Gurion to visit their families in the region.

The “crossings will be open for [travel to] prayers as the activity hours of the crossings will be extended,” according to a spokesperson for the COGAT.

Moreover, Gazans will be allowed to attend prayers in Jerusalem at the Al Aqsa Mosque on the Temple Mount, and attend Ramadan religious events.

They will also be able to visit relatives in Israel, as well as in Palestinian Authority-controlled areas of Judea and Samaria — assuming, of course, that Gaza’s ruling Hamas terror organization agrees to allow its citizens all this freedom. It’s also not clear whether Hamas will allow visitors to enter the region to visit family members either, for that matter. That is not under Israel’s control.

But this time it won’t be the Israeli government placing obstacles in the way.

The Palestinian Authority and the international community have been “updated on these steps for the holiday,” the statement said.

Yehudah Glick Visits Temple Mount for Last Time Prior to Becoming Knesset Member [video]

Monday, May 23rd, 2016

By Joshua B. Dermer/TPS – This article has been edited by JewishPress.com from the original version.

Jerusalem (TPS) – Temple Mount activist and soon-to-be Likud Member of Knesset Yehuda Glick seized the final opportunity on Monday morning to visit the Temple Mount.

Glick, an American-born rabbi with a distinctive red beard, is an outspoken advocate for Jewish prayer on the Temple Mount. Currently, parts of the site are open to visits by small groups of Jews, but only Muslims may pray or perform any acts of worship, per a “status quo” agreement set up by Prime Minister Netanyahu with the Islamic Waqf and the Kingdom of Jordan, due to fear of Islamic violence.

Members of Knesset have also been banned by order of the prime minister from visiting the Jewish people’s holiest site due to fear of the Islamists using the officials’ visit as a flashpoint to set off further terror attacks against Israelis.

Glick has said he would not defy the ban and would call to allow Jewish prayer on the site “from within the Knesset.”

Glick was previously banned from visiting the Temple Mount due to fears by the police that his presence would cause Arab riots and uproar. After being acquitted of the false charge of harassing an Arab woman on the Temple Mount, he was finally granted re-entry to the site three months ago over the police’s objections.

He barely survived an assassination attempt when he was shot by an Arab-Islamic gunman outside Jerusalem’s Begin Center in October 2014, following a conference concerning the Jewish presence on the Temple Mount. According to Glick, before opening fire the gunman told him, “you are an enemy of Al-Aqsa.”

He was placed at the back of the Likud slate for the Knesset in the last election and did not get a seat. However, after last week’s resignation by Defense Minister Moshe Ya’alon, Glick will be sworn in as the newest member of Knesset representing the Likud party. He will officially assume the position on Monday night at 11 p.m.

Some final words by Yehuda Glick during his last visit before becoming an MK:

Northern Islamic Movement Leader Sheikh Raed Salah Begins Prison Sentence

Sunday, May 8th, 2016

The head of the outlawed northern branch of the Islamic Movement in Israel, Sheikh Raed Salah, was slated to begin serving a nine month sentence in prison on Sunday.

He left the northern Israeli Arab city of Umm al Fahm in Wadi Ara and arrived at Oholei Kedar Prison near Be’er Sheva at 10 am to begin serving his sentence.

Salah was convicted on charges of incitement to racism and violence in 2013, and again last October, when he was sentenced to an 11-month jail term.

His attorney filed an appeal against the conviction, which was rejected, but on April 18 the sentence was reduced to nine months.

The conviction followed a sermon Salah delivered in 2007 in the Wadi Joz section of eastern Jerusalem.

The radical Islamist is responsible for repeated sermons in which young Muslims are whipped into a frenzy of hatred and then violence against Israelis, using the pretext of “defending Al Aqsa” from the Jews on the Temple Mount.

On Friday he told the Palestinian Authority newspaper Al-Resalah, “Prison strengthens me due to my faith that Jerusalem is a pure right for Muslims and defending it is imperative.” He said that the ‘Israeli aggression’ will accelerate “the end of the occupation of the Holy City. “I will continue [defending Al-Aqsa] until martyrdom. No retreat, whatever the price is. The Islamic Movement [banned in November 2015] is not a simple name, but it has its roots in Galilee, Negev and Al-Aqsa Mosque.”

Although the mosque is the third holiest site in Islam, Jews have no intention of touching it. Jews are forbidden to pray anywhere on the Temple Mount grounds surrounding the mosque. Jewish pilgrims visit the compound because it is the holiest place in the world in the Jewish faith, as the site of the past two Jewish Holy Temples of Jerusalem.

Muslims vehemently object to the presence of Jews anywhere on the site, and some Islamic clerics at the mosque seize this opportunity to to stir up trouble. Chief among them is Salah, who told followers at a rally on Friday in Umm al Fahm that he does not fear prison, according to Haaretz; he believes he will emerge ‘stronger than ever.’

Israel Police, Jordanian Islamic Waqf Play ‘Good Cop, Bad Cop’ With Danish Reporter at Temple Mount

Thursday, April 28th, 2016

Danish reporter ‘Jerusalem Jane’ Kiel announced in a video report on Facebook Thursday morning (April 28) that she was cleared to return to the Temple Mount by police at the precinct near the Jaffat Gate entrance to the Old City.

The move was odd, given that it was Israel Police who removed her from the Temple Mount earlier in the morning at the directive of the Jordanian Islamic Waqf, Kiel said, just shortly before.

“After being forced off the Temple Mount again I just talked to the police,” she wrote in her post. “They checked my passport and, according to them I AM ALLOWED ON THE TEMPLE MOUNT.. “So the Waqf say no, but the Israeli police says yes.

And the fact is, it was the [Israel] police that took me off after the Waqft (sic) told them to… See you up there sometime soon. We will see who is in charge..”

JewishPress.com was unable to reach the Israel Police spokesperson on the incident despite repeated attempts to do so.

Could it be that Israel Police and Jordanian Islamic Waqf security personnel are playing the game of “good cop, bad cop” with international journalists on the Temple Mount these days?
