Palestinian Authority Incites Bedouin Anti-Israel Protests

Thursday, January 9th, 2014

The Palestinian Authority has embarked on a daily campaign to solidify ties with Bedouin protesters in the Negev, where the Jews are an increasingly smaller minority outside of Be’er Sheva.

“Hundreds of Palestinians with Israeli citizenship demonstrated in Beersheba outside of the office for the Authority for the Regulation of Bedouin Settlement in the Negev on Thursday to protest ongoing house demolitions,” the Bethlehem-based Ma’an News Agency reported.

“The demonstrators chanted the Palestinian national anthem and waved Palestinian flags,” it added.

It quoted the mayor of the Bedouin city of Rahat, approximately 15 miles north of Be’er Sheva, as calling the authority a “second government which endeavors to displace the Bedouins and steal their lands.”

Sound familiar?

If all of the land in Judea and Samaria and more than half of Jerusalem belongs to the “Palestinians” and almost all of the Negev belongs to Bedouin, the Palestinian Authority can call Israel a “Jewish state” just to mock the idea because the government of Tel Aviv has malignly neglected the Galilee, east of Haifa, and all of the Negev, where Arabs and Bedouin are the majority.

It is not a coincidence and it is not just rhetoric when protesting Bedouin call their land “Palestine.”

Arabs Stone Temple Mount Visitors, Try to Block Jewish Entry

Wednesday, September 4th, 2013

The Temple Mount was opened to visitors on Wednesday morning, on the eve of Rosh Hashana, and masked Arabs took advantage of that and began stoning visitors and policemen in the Temple Mount plaza.

Following the stoning, police entered the Temple Mount in force and scattered the stone throwers, many of whom ran into the mosque to avoid arrest.

It is now quiet on the Temple Mount, and the visits are continuing uninterrupted.

This morning, police also turned around dozen of buses transporting Arabs heading to the Temple Mount.

Raed Salach, the head of the northern branch of the Islamic Movement in Israel, called on his Arab followers to prevent Jews from going up to the Temple Mount today.

Raed Salach was previously convicted of funding Hamas, meeting an Iranian intelligence officer, and attacking a policeman for which he went to jail a few times.

The courts just released Salach again today, following an incitement speech last week, with a restraining order of not to get within 30 kilometers of Jerusalem for the next 180 days.

 

Arab PR Stunt Tells Obama How to Enter Temple Mount Mosque

Monday, February 25th, 2013

Israeli Arab extremists and Palestinian Authority clerics held a press conference Sunday to “warn” President Barack Obama “to ensure Muslim sovereignty” when he supposedly will enter the Al Aqsa mosque on the Temple Mount when he visits.

The White House has not announced his itinerary, but the President will stay clear of the Western Wall, where he prayed during his 2008 presidential campaign, and the mosque, both for security and political reasons.

Arab activists decided to exploit President Obama’s planned visit to Israel to make another claim to sovereignty over the Temple Mount.

Israeli Arab Sheikh Ra’ad Salah, who is from the Galilee city of Umm-el-Fahm and heads the Northern Branch of the radical Islamic Movement, said that Israel has “no sovereignty over Al-Aqsa or Jerusalem.”

He was quoted by the Al Aqsa Foundation as declaring,  ”The US president is likely to visit the Aqsa Mosque, but we should affirm that our position towards such situation will be in conformity with the constants of the Muslim and Arab nations, and the Palestinian people as well as with the issue of Jerusalem and the Aqsa Mosque.”

Sheikh Akrameh Sabri, head of the higher Islamic council and former Grand Mufti of Jerusalem, said at the press conference, “Any visitor is welcome to Al-Aqsa, but they should follow the regulations of the Waqf and enter through the Lions’ Gate and not through Mughrabi Gate, to ensure Muslim sovereignty.” Non-Muslims enter the mosque through the Mughrabi Gate which is under Israeli supervision, as opposed to the enter from Lion’s Gate.

The Fatah-controlled Palestinian Authority’s Jerusalem minister, Sheikh Ikrima Sabri, insisted that said “that Obama should not be accompanied by an Israeli official during his visit to the holy Mosque because it belongs to Muslims and it is their holy site alone,” according to Hamas’ official website.
