It wouldn’t have been too difficult for the police to have identified all the masked Jihadists on the Temple Mount today, if only the police had been there.

Here is the Wikipedia definition of extortion:
Extortion is a criminal offense of obtaining money, property, or services from an institution, through coercion. It is sometimes euphemistically referred to as a “protection racket” since the racketeers often phrase their demands as payment for “protection” from (real or hypothetical) threats from unspecified other parties. Extortion is commonly practiced by organized crime groups. The actual obtainment of money or property is not required to commit the offense. Making a threat of violence which refers to a requirement of a payment of money or property to halt future violence is sufficient to commit the offense.
Now explain how this does not fit that definition:
In response to EU support for French initiative to pressure Israel to make yet more concessions for “peace,” Mahmoud Abbas is planning to make a speech sometime within the next 48 hours.
His spokesman Nabil Abu Rudeina said, “We welcome this European stance and call for the US administration to support these efforts that lead to real peace, and to exert pressure on the Israeli government to bow to the international will and the international consensus and international legitimacy and the Arab peace initiative. The only way to stability and peace in the region is a Palestinian state with its capital in East Jerusalem. Without it, the region and the world will remain in a state of imbalance and instability.”
This is a threat, and a threat that has been made countless times before. It is a Mafia-style protection racket being employed daily to every nation on the planet. “Do what we say and no one gets hurt.”
If you follow the logic through, it means that the Palestinians say that if they don’t get what they demand, even if that demand – Jerusalem – has no basis in history or international law, they will make sure that the world will suffer the consequences.
There isn’t an iota of evidence that a Palestinian state with Jerusalem will result in less Middle East bloodshed than a Palestinian state without Jerusalem. Jerusalem is an arbitrary demand – one of many that Abbas has made, including “return” and prisoners being released and no Jews allowed on their holiest spot. It has nothing to do with statehood, nothing to do with peace, nothing to do with stability.
It has everything to do with erasing the Jewish connection to the land.
The world is being extorted, yet the world is happy to accede to the blackmail that is being practiced openly every day by the “President of the State of Palestine.”
Why isn’t the world outraged at being threatened every day by a two-bit, terror supporting, Holocaust denying criminal?
Because the only ones that have to pay the extortion price is Israel and the Jewish people.Elder of Ziyon
Jerusalem Mayor Nir Barkat is set to fire the ancient Ramadan cannon on Tuesday signaling the end of the Islamic holy month’s daily fasts.
The cannon will be fired at the ancient cemetery on Salah a Din Street near the Old City police station together with the Haj Yahya Sandouka family.
The Sandouka hamullah (clan) has been responsible for firing the cannon during the month of Ramadan and on Eid al-Fitr, the holiday ending the fast, since the Ottoman period 200 years ago.
The cannon is fired twice each day of the holy Islamic month of Ramadan, at sunrise and sunset, marking the beginning and the end of the fast each day.
Following the ceremony, the mayor will join the dignitaries of the neighborhood for the Iftar meal.
Ramadan, which began on June 6, ends this year on July 5, when Muslims celebrate the Islamic holiday of Eid al-Fitr to mark the end of the fast, and which lasts in countries for up to three days.Jewish Press News Briefs

The Jerusalem District Court on Sunday sentenced Yishai Schlissel, who murdered teenage girl Shira Banki and attempted to murder others at the Jerusalem Gay Pride parade last August, to life in prison with an additional 31 years. The court also fined Schlissel about $530,000 as reparations to the Banki family and to the rest of Schlissel’s victims.
Judges Nava Ben-Or, Arnon Darel and Rafi Yaakovi wrote in their sentence: “We are dealing with a man who does not recognize a human before him, a cruel, dangerous and heartless man. A man for whom the Judaism of darchey noam-pleasant paths and roads of peace, which teaches that man—every man—is beloved because he was created in the Image [of God], is foreign.” Instead, the judges wrote, the defendant views himself as “He who kills and gives life, in the name of principles he appointed himself to enforce.” The judges ruled that “this dangerous man may no longer roam the streets of Jerusalem or anywhere else.”
The judges also wrote that “in his few days of freedom between arrests, the defendant extinguished the life of a young woman who was so life loving, Shira Banki z”l who was about 16 when she dies… He did not see her as a human being at all, he did not care a hoot whose body would absorb his knife.”
Schlissel’s sentence is comprised of a life sentence for the premeditated murder, 30 year for his six convictions of attempted murder counts and inflicting injury under aggravated conditions, and one additional year which is the suspended sentence for his previous sentence.
The judges were severely critical of police for failing to learn the lesson from the 2005 Gay Pride parade in which Schlissel had been arrested for attempted murder. They blamed police for failing to stop him from carrying out the same crime only a month after his release from serving ten years for the attempted murders.
The judges also criticized the legislator for failing to provide police with the legal authority to follow and supervise dangerous criminals who have served out their sentence.JNi.Media
On Sunday morning, a group of Arab youths entered the Temple Mount compound in Jerusalem, some of them masked, and began to cause disruptions and harass the Jewish and non-Islamic visitors to the Jewish holy site.
Four of the Islamic instigators were arrested by police.
At around 10:30 AM, the Arab riots began to escalate with stone throwing and the police closed the Temple Mount to all Jewish visitors and tourists.
Arabs claim that between 2 to 5 Islamic rioters have been injured by the attempts by the police to restore order.
Watching the video is like a watching an attack of “Allahu Akbar” yelling zombies in a cheap horror flick.
On Friday, the Arabs on the Temple Mount, threw a ball down into the Kotel Plaza below, from a height of over 60 feet (19 meters). No one was hit or hurt by the ball.Jewish Press News Briefs
A U.S. Jewish political action committee (PAC) called the ‘Iron Dome Alliance‘ is calling on the Republican Party to recognize Judea and Samaria as the indigenous homeland of the Jewish People, and Jerusalem as the eternal capital of Israel.
The PAC actually has asked both the GOP and the Democratic Party to include the recognition in their official platforms, including the regions under a geographic description of the ‘Land of Israel.’
The Alliance states on its website the belief that the ‘State of Israel is the modern re-establishment of the sovereign nation state of the Jewish people in their ancestral homeland and that Jerusalem is the eternal capital of the Jewish State of Israel, and the spiritual capital of the Jewish people.”
The group also states that “Judea and Samaria is the heartland of the Biblical holy land, the cradle of Jewish civilization, and Israel’s claim to this internationally disputed territory is right and just.”
Alliance chairman Jeff Ballabon said the group is focusing its efforts on the Republican Party because it is simply more attuned to pro-Israel positions.Hana Levi Julian
