Leader of World’s Largest Islamic Group to Visit Temple Mount

Sunday, January 4th, 2015

The secretary-general of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation, an umbrella group representing 57 Muslim countries based in Saudi Arabia, plans to visit the Temple Mount Monday.

Iyad bin Amin Madani is scheduled to make the visit as part of a trip that also includes a meeting with Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas in Ramallah, OnIslam.net reported.

Madani’s first Temple Mount visit comes as Muslim-Jewish tension simmers over control of the holy site, contributing to an uptick in Palestinian terrorism in and around Jerusalem.

Last May, Madani urged Muslims from around the world to visit the Temple Mount in order to “confirm that this mosque is a part of their faith,” in reference to the Al-Aqsa Mosque located there. Many Muslims maintain an informal boycott of visiting Al-Aqsa in protest of Israel’s control of the Temple Mount. Israel, however, bans Jewish prayer at the site.

Hamas Posts New ‘Dung’ Claiming Temple Mount Tunneling

Sunday, December 28th, 2014

The latest post on the website of the Hamas ‘Izz a-Din al-Qassam’ military division is a bunch of dung, probably carted over from the nearby Gate next to the Temple Mount.

The post, deliberately calculated to maximize the primitive fears of the most uneducated masses of Muslim worshipers, is beyond the realm of ridiculous. But Arabs really believe it. (Of course, it is also possible the writer himself actually also believes it; it’s impossible to gauge the level of Qur’anic education of some of the Hamas terrorist clerics who spout this insanity.)

“According to latest reports, constant Israeli excavations underneath Al Aqsa Mosque have caused serious destruction to the foundation of Buraq Square, inside the Dung Gate,” the post reads. “According to the PNN, local sources reported a huge collapse of 2 meters in the foundation. No injuries among the group of worshipers and citizens were reported.

“However, sources have confirmed the existence of a network of tunnels underneath the mosque’s courtyards, where the Israeli occupation continues to excavate in an apparent attempt to incrementally demolish the mosque and rebuild the alleged Temple.”

Ah, the eternal fear of Ishmael — that his cousin Israel will return to rebuild the Holy Temple and trigger the coming of Moshiach Tzidkenu, the Messiah, the End of Days, the Mahdi, as he is known among Muslims. Does he not know that it is the other way around — that the Messiah himself must lead the way?

Oddly, a search of the PNN (Palestinian News Network) website shows only one reference to any “collapse” in the foundation of Al Aqsa. It is found in an article posted Dec. 17, entitled “Extremist Settlers Commit Successive Breakings Into Al-Aqsa.” The writer, who appears to be suffering either from a severe attack of paranoia, or from outright delusions, accuses “Israeli extremist groups” of breaking into the mosque compound “from Al Mughrabi gate, accompanied by private forces…. Local sources aid that the attacks on the mosque took place through small but successive groups, making provocative ‘tours’ in the corners and facilities of Al-Aqsa.” The article goes on to say the “attack” came in the morning, and “occupation police” detained the Ids of worshipers until they left the mosque.

“Jews say the dome of the rock is their first holiest place and proclaim that Al-Aqsa sits above the temple mount. (sic) “Successive digging and construction works have been going on under the mosque, in addition to several clashes between the worshipers and Zionist settlers who break into the mosque, causing the breakout of violent clashes in the whole city of Jerusalem.”

For those who need a primer on the preparation of propaganda, this would make a very good start. Begin with one lie and expand upon it until swallowed whole by an entire society. Repeat as often as possible. (Feel free to peruse the entire PNN site, by the way, for a quick trip into the world of Palestinian paranoia par excellence. It is for this reason the entire population is so badly misinformed.)

For the edification of those who actually swallowed this lot of bilge, here are facts that can be verified and are listed in multiple sources internationally:

1. The Temple Mount and in particular the Al Aqsa mosque and Dome of the Rock are administered under the Waqf Islamic Authority by mutual agreement of the Kingdom of Jordan and the State of Israel. 2. The Waqf Authority is overseen by the Kingdom of Jordan, by agreement with the State of Israel. 3. Security for the Temple Mount is provided by the State of Israel, with agreement from the Kingdom of Jordan. 4. No one is allowed to enter the mosque – either one, in fact – save Muslim worshipers, except in the case of life-threatening circumstances. 5. The so-called construction works and digging under the mosque were initiated by and carried out by the Waqf, without authorization from the State of Israel. No one else would have had access. Priceless artifacts that proved the existence of the First and Second Holy Temples of the Jews in Jerusalem were destroyed in that construction; others were damaged but rescued after the discarded rubble from the construction was retrieved and sifted through in a multi-year project carried out by volunteers off-site. 6. As for the “clashes between worshipers and Zionist settlers who break into the mosque” and the “violent clashes in the whole city of Jerusalem” – that is a reference to the violent attacks by Muslims at the site on Jews who enter the Temple Mount plaza, and a cheeky smirk about the rising number of vicious attacks on Israelis around the capital, as the terrorists’ long hoped-for third intifada finally takes hold. 7. Finally, a word about the place of the Temple Mount in Judaism and Islam. The site is holy to both faiths. But Jerusalem is not mentioned even once in the Qur’an, and the Temple Mount is considered the site of the Holy of Holies in both Jewish ancient Holy Temples. The site is considered the third holiest place in the Islamic faith, the place from which the prophet Mohammed rode up to heaven on his steed El Buraq. None in Israel dispute that; but none in Israel are willing to give up their holiest site.

Muslim Destroys French City’s Xmas Decorations

Wednesday, December 24th, 2014

The residents of Le Mans, France should be happy that the Muslim man arrested by police was only destroying Xmas decorations in the city’s center as he yelled “Allahu Ackbar”, and he wasn’t stabbing people, or trying to run them over, as has been the case this past week in France.

The man was sent to a mental institution following his arrest.

PA Arabs Clash with IDF Soldiers in Jerusalem, Judea, Samaria

Friday, December 19th, 2014

Palestinian Authority Arabs clashed with Israeli soldiers in various locations throughout Judea and Samaria on Friday.

On the Temple Mount, rioters were waving the flags of the Hamas terrorist organization during violent demonstrations.

The ongoing violence is just more of the weekly Friday ‘Days of Rage’ across the regions, egged on by Islamic clerics during their Muslim Sabbath sermons in the mosques.

The rioters are protesting Israel’s presence in Judea, Samaria and Jerusalem – and more to the point, in the Middle East as a whole. They have been taught from birth over the past three generations via the media and in school texts that Jews have no place in “Palestine” and that one day the Arabs will drive them all into the sea. It is towards this goal they are nurtured from birth to the grave, with little else to distract them in most PA curriculums.

Final status talks as mandated under the internationally-recognized Oslo Accords signed by Israel and the Palestinian Authority in the early 1990s have been entirely set aside.

The PA has successfully managed to evade their obligations under this document by managing to achieve status in the United Nations General Assembly as a non-member observer nation called the “State of Palestine.”

Now European nations are beginning to recognize the entity as an independent sovereign country as well, despite its divided, fragmented nature, without any real boundaries and without having carried out any of its agreed-upon responsibilities.

Meanwhile PA Arab terrorists have successfully launched a lethal, third intifada against Israeli citizens, an ominous sign that is being more or less ignored by the international community.

Polish Court Rules Ban on Shechitah Unconstitutional

Wednesday, December 10th, 2014

A Polish court ruled that the de-facto ban imposed last year on slaughter without stunning of animals, which includes kosher and halal ritual slaughter, is unconstitutional.

A majority of five out of the nine justices who reviewed the ban at the Polish Constitutional Tribunal Wednesday ruled it ran contrary to the country’s constitution, the European Jewish Association, a Brussels-based lobby group that has fought to scrap the ban, said in a statement.

The court’s ruling was on a petition that argued the ban violated the European Convention on Human Rights and led to “discrimination in social and economic life of Jews in Poland,” polska.newsweek.pl reported.

The Union of Jewish Religious Communities in Poland was among several entities that appealed the ban. The union filed its petition with the tribunal over a year ago to review the case.

Ritual slaughter was banned in Poland, effective as of Jan. 1, 2013, after the country’s constitutional court scrapped a government regulation that exempted Jews and Muslims from a law requiring the stunning of animals prior to slaughter. Jewish ritual slaughter, or shechitah, as well as Muslim ritual slaughter, or halal, requires that animals be conscious before their necks are cut.

The tribunal asked for the opinion of the Sejm, or Parliament, and the Prosecutor General’s Office in making its decision.

According to the Sejm, ritual slaughter for the needs of the Jewish community in Poland is legal, and the person performing the slaughter cannot be punished. The Prosecutor General’s Office has a different opinion, which says that “the slaughter of animals, provided by religious rites, is not permitted.”

Before the ban, Poland had a $500 million industry of halal and kosher meat for export.

In July 2013 a draft bill aimed at legalizing ritual slaughter failed to pass in Polish parliament.

On March 5, 2014 KRIR, or the National Council of Agricultural Chambers in Poland, filed in Poland’s Sejm a bill on the Law on Slaughter which would legalize ritual slaughter. Parliament will take up this project after the Constitutional Tribunal’s judgment.

Rabbi Pinchas Goldschmidt, president of the Conference of European Rabbis, said in a statement the ruling meant that “Shechitah can continue in Poland as it has done for generations.” Rabbi Menachem Margolin, director of the European Jewish Association, said the ruling Wednesday was a “relief” because it “prevents a dangerous precedent that would have affected all European Jewry.

“In the last few years, the European Jewish community has been under attack from a series of anti-Jewish laws, that, if passed, would seriously restrict the ability of many Jews who wish to lead a Jewish life,” added Rabbi Margolin.

US Christian Plotted to Blow Up Muslim Holy Sites in Israel

Tuesday, December 9th, 2014

A Christian American fugitive moved to Palestinian Authority areas in Judea and Samaria and obtained weapons he intended to use to attack Muslim holy sites, according to information released by police following the lifting of a gag order.

Police arrested Texas native Adam Everett Livvix, age 30,  on November 19, and said Tuesday he is wanted in the United States for drug-related offenses.

He moved to Arab villages in the Bethlehem and Hebron areas, south of Jerusalem, and hooked up with a Palestinian Authority Arab who offered him sharpshooter rifles to kill President Barack Obama during his visit in 2013.

Livvix did not accept the proposal and instead kept his aim on Muslim sites.

He left the Bethlehem-Hebron area and moved around for more than a year as an unregistered alien in Netanya and other cities, telling people he had been a member of the US Navy commando SEALS unit.

Police, acting on intelligence information, searched his home and found bullets and rifle parts that had been stolen from the IDF. They also found explosives. Livvix was living with an IDF soldier whom he asked to make a 3-pound bomb.

Not surprisingly, he has been sent for a  psychiatric examination.

Livvix was arrested for unlawful possession of arms and being an unregistered alien. He confessed to several crimes involving fraud and revealed he intended to attack Islamic holy sites. Livvix tried to escape arrest by jumping out of his seven-story apartment window.

The FBI is involved in the case. Livvix is a wanted man in Texas for theft and also has several other warrants in other states.

The last thing Israel needs is a nut case trying to blow up Muslim holy sites.

Arab propagandists still blame Israel for the attempt in 1969 by Australian Christian Denis Michael Rohan, who died in 1995, to burn down the Al Aqsa mosque on the Temple Mount

He called himself “the Lord’s emissary” and that God told him to destroy the mosque to hasten the building of the Third Temple, which would be followed by the resurrection of Jesus, assuming that the all-out war that a “successful” arson attack on the mosque would not have set the entire Middle East on fire, leaving no one around to build the Temple.

The Arab world, of course, blamed Israel for the arson attempt.

Two dozen Muslim countries complained to the United Nations Security Council, and the Jordanian delegate stated, “The Israeli authorities introduced more than one explanation for the start of the fire and at last charged an Australian with the arson. According to news that originated from Israel sources, the Australian suspect is a friend of Israel who was brought by the Jewish Agency to work for Israel.”

Israel is a holy place. It attracts people searching for God and themselves, and they often mix the two together.

Livvix hopefully will be returned to the United States, where it is unlikely that American authorities will let him out of jail as easily and quickly as Israel does.
