‘There is a War against Jews on the Internet and on the Streets’

Saturday, November 15th, 2014

“There is a war against the Jews on the internet and on the streets” in Europe, European Jewish Congress (EJC) president Dr. Moshe Cantor said Saturday night, hours after an Antwerp rabbi was stabbed in the throat while he was walking to synagogue.

“Until there is a crackdown on incitement to hatred and anti-Semitism, then more people will believe that these types of attacks are legitimate,” Kantor added.

The EJC called on authorities across Europe to provide Jewish communities with a sense of security after the latest attack.

“Jews in Europe have lost a normal sense of security that worsens with every attack on Jews and Jewish institutions which are taking place with alarming regularity,” according to Kantor. “As citizens of Europe, it is the responsibility of the authorities, political, judicial and law enforcement, to ensure that Jews feel free to walk the streets in the open and live their lives absent of the fear these attacks generate….

“At the root of these attacks is the ongoing incitement against Jews from across the political spectrum and radical Islamists,”

When will European leaders take action, real action, against the radical Islamic threat to the continent?

A good guess would be that the time will come after Jews leave for Israel, if not elsewhere, and the Gentiles become next target of Muslim fanatics, who are rapidly emerging as the de facto leaders of Islam.

PLO Campaigns to Wipe ‘Temple Mount’ Off the Media Map

Sunday, November 9th, 2014

The PLO, to which the Palestinian Authority is subservient, has escalated its campaign to remove all connection between Judaism and the site of the destroyed Holy Temples by appealing to international media to stop using the ”inaccurate term Temple Mount.”

“The Al-Aqsa Mosque compound is not a disputed territory and all other terms, therefore, are null and void,” according to a PLO statement published by the official Palestinian Authority WAFA news agency.

It claimed that the Al Aqsa mosque has been under exclusive Muslim sovereignty and control since the construction of the Dome of the Rock in 692 CE, which is a blatant lie.

During the period of the Crusaders conquest, the site was turned over to the Augustinians, who turned it into a church while the Al-Aqsa Mosque became a royal palace. The mosque building became the headquarters of The Knights Templar during the 12th century

Israel raised its national flag over the Temple Mount after the Six-Day War in 1967, but Defense Minister Moshe Dayan ordered that it be taken down, and he authorized the Muslim Waqf to supervise the site. Jews freely ascended the Temple Mount without any objection for several years after 1967.

The Chief Rabbinate of Israel, run by Haredim, unwittingly aided and abetted the Muslim campaign to exclude Jews by ruling that Jews are forbidden from ascending the Temple Mount because they might walk over the buried ruins of the Holy Temples. An increasing number of national religious rabbis have permitted and even encouraged vesting areas of the Temple Mount where they say there is no such concern.

WAFA described the entire 36-acre site of the Al Aqsa mosque compound as a Muslim holy site.

The Palestinian Authority over the past decade has tried to eliminate any proof that the Holy Temples existed by removing hundreds of tons of debris that contained artifacts of the Temple period.

WAFA stated for media consumption that the Al Aqsa c=mosque compound is “sacred to approximately 1.6 billion Muslims around the world and [is] a symbol for all Palestinians.”

It added that the compound ”is located in East Jerusalem, an internationally recognized part of the Occupied State of Palestine” and alleged that “since Israel’s military occupation of East Jerusalem in the June 1967 War, several plots by settler organizations and other Zionist extremists to blow up the Mosque were uncovered by the Israeli authorities.”

The PLO strategy is to cash in on the Chamberlain-like appeasement preaching that “settler leaders, with the support of the Israeli government, continue to incite against this sacred site, and consequently provoke Palestinian fears and anger.”

According to the theory, Israel should not do anything that angers the Muslims.

It is no wonder that Iran still frees free to propose peace in the Middle East by annihilating Israel.

Iran’s Supreme Leader Ayatollah Khamenei tweeted, “Khamenei.ir ‏@khamenei_ir This barbaric, wolflike & infanticidal regime of #Israel which spares no crime has no cure but to be annihilated. 7/23/14 #HandsOffAlAqsa”.

MK Feiglin Visits Temple Mount and Planet Earth Remains Alive

Sunday, November 2nd, 2014

Knesset Member Moshe Feiglin visited the Temple Mount and was photographed near the Al Aqsa mosque Sunday morning, the first time police opened the holy site to Jews since the attempted murder of Rabbi Yehuda Glick Wednesday night.

Glick still is in critical condition in Sha’arei Tzedek Hospital, but his condition is improving slightly, giving doctors reason to believe he will recover from his wounds.

Feiglin’s visit was marked with the usual shouts of hate from Arabs, but there was no violence, mainly because police have finally taken the upper hand at the holy site and in Arab neighborhoods.

They arrested at least 17 Arab rioters since Friday, bringing to 111 the number detained in the past nine days. More arrests are expected.

The opening of the Temple Mount to Jews Sunday followed five days of closure since the shooting. Police on Thursday closed the holy site to Muslims as well as to Jews and foreign tourists, the first time in memory. It was re-opened Friday – but only for Muslims.

Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu has called on legislators to tone down the rhetoric concerning the Temple Mount, prompting MK Feiglin to state Saturday night at a rally in behalf of Glick, “Nothing incites more than that kind of talk to stop ascending the Temple Mount.”

Feiglin visited the holy site, Planet Earth did not tremble, and the Al Aqsa mosque did not collapse.

US Told Israel Temple Mount ’Must Be Opened to Muslims’

Friday, October 31st, 2014

The United States pressured Israel to open the Temple Mount to Muslims after the unprecedented one-day closure on Thursday, U.S. State Dept. spokeswoman Jen Psaki told reporters.

After expressing “concern” over “escalating tensions across Jerusalem and particularly surrounding the Haram al-Sharif/Temple Mount,” she said, “It must be reopened to Muslim worshippers….

“We’ve been in close touch, as I’ve mentioned or alluded to, with senior Israeli, Jordanian, and Palestinian officials to try to de-escalate the situation. ….

“We support the longstanding practices regarding non-Muslim visitors to the site, to Haram al-Sharif/Temple Mount. And consistent with our respect for the status quo, we would like to see it returned to that.”

Non-Muslim visitors? How about non-Muslim worshippers, meaning Jews?

Psaki did not go any further, lest she “escalate tensions” by telling the whole truth.

The U.S. State Dept. last year, in its annual International Religious Freedom Report, stated, “[The] Israeli government policy is to grant freedom of religious expression to all, but despite an Israeli Supreme Court ruling, police continue to prevent many people from praying in the area due to what they say are ‘security considerations’

“While the government ensured limited access to the Temple Mount/Haram al-Sharif to everyone regardless of religious beliefs, only Muslims are allowed to pray at the site, although their access has been occasionally restricted due to security concerns.”

One of those who has been repeatedly restricted from ascending the Temple Mount until recently is Rabbi Yehuda Glick, who was critically wounded by an Arab terrorist Wednesday night.

Psaki condemned the attempted murder but didn’t connect the dots. Doing so would be dangerous to the State Dept’s warped view of Israel and Jewish rights.

Rabbi Glick was shot because he often visits the Temple Mount, brings hundreds of other to the holy site and openly supports the building of the Third Temple, something which the Obama administration would call an “illegal settlement.”

 

Abbas Declares Closure of Al Aqsa Mosque a ‘Declaration of War’

Thursday, October 30th, 2014

Israel’s closure of the Temple Mount and the Al Aqsa mosque is “a dangerous Israeli escalation [and] is a declaration of war on the Palestinian people and its sacred places and on the Arab and Islamic nation,” Palestinian Authority Chairman Mahmoud Abbas said Thursday morning.

“We hold the Israeli government responsible for this dangerous escalation in Jerusalem that has reached its peak through the closure of the Al-Aqsa mosque this morning,” he added, directly quoted by his spokesman Nabil Abu Rudeina.

Abu Rudeina twisted the knife into the truth by added that “Jerusalem and its holy Muslim and Christian places are a red line and we won’t accept any harm to them.”

His lumping Christian sites with Muslim sites is part of Abbas’’ well-crafted strategy to paint Israel as threat to all religions other than Judaism.

The Christian world and international media have ignored the ever-increasingly popular Muslim cleric manifesto that the Jewish Holy Temples never existed, so the Palestinian Authority has every reason to expect that the world has forgotten that Jordan barred entry to Christian and Jewish holy sites during it occupation of Judea and Samaria and eastern Jerusalem from 1948 to 1967.

Exceptions were made for international leaders, but other than that, freedom of religion was restricted to Muslims. Abbas recently called for Jews to be banned from the Temple Mount.

The Palestinian Authority is counting on the United Nations and media monkeys to continue to quote its leaders without batting an eye or checking the facts.

That gives Abu Rudeina a free ticket to state that the first-ever closure of the Al Aqsa mosque “was a brazen challenge and dangerous behavior, and will lead to more tension and instability and create very dangerous atmosphere.”

This is the same Palestinian Authority that two days claimed it is not inciting. Abbas announced on Wednesday, “We do not want an intifada. We are not calling for an intifada.”

Accusing Israel of declaring war is not a call for incitement just like “resistance” is not violence” and “negotiations” does not “ultimatum.”

His spokesman on Thursday was careful to add that the “declaration of war” was against “both the Arab and Islamic nations.”

If you are going to war, you want all the allies in your camp.

However, the Arab world really does not care much about the Palestinian Authority and Mahmoud Abbas, who simply is a convenient tool for them to make trouble for Israel without their having to do the dirty work themselves.

Closing the mosque need is unprecedented and boils Muslim blood, which is not such a difficult task.

Israeli police allowed only a few Arab guards and the Muslim director of the Al Aqsa compound to enter the area on Thursday.

“It is unacceptable that the Al-Aqsa Mosque pays a toll for the events in Jerusalem. The mosque is a place for prayer and worship and all Muslims have the right to access it,” the director was quoted as saying by the Bethlehem-based Ma’an News Agency.

Abbas’ allegation that Israel has declared war brings the Temple Mount to its eventual and rightful place as the red line that for the time being is painted in blood.

Yasser Arafat, before he trashed the concept of the Nobel Peace Prize by manipulating the word to successfully exploit terror to make peace, something like stabbing someone in the back out of love, used the Temple Mount to spark the Second Intifada.

That “resistance” effort also was known as the Oslo War but which in reality simply was the continuation of the first intifada, which took a rest for a couple of years while Arafat sedated the world with evil.

Ariel Sharon, who was running for Prime Minister against the hapless Ehud Barak in 2000, marched on to the Temple Mount during his campaign, giving Arafat the “declaration of war” that he needed to kill Jews for peace.

The State of Israel has given Abbas the same opportunity. It only was a matter of time until Abbas could turn around the truth for the world of lies and convince Arabs – the ones just waiting for a green light to go on a rampage against Jews.

But as Abbas said, “Who, me” starting an intifada?”

 

Jerusalem Mayor Barkat Visits Temple Mount

Tuesday, October 28th, 2014

Jerusalem Nit Barkat visited the Temple Mount Tuesday morning one day after Palestinian Authority prime minster Rami Hamdallah did the same.

Barkat previously has stated, “My opinion is that everyone should be able to pray there.”

Hamdallah’s visit was part of a Palestinian Authority campaign to keep the holy site free of Jews. Barkat said his aim was “to learn the challenges police face,” according to his spokesman.

The challenge is violence by Arab every time a Jew tries to visit the Temple Mount, which the Arab world continues to try to convince itself is a target for Israel to dig tunnels and undermine the foundations of the Al Aqsa mosque so that it will collapse.

The Temple Mount and the entire Old City were destined to become red lines for the Palestinian Authority and Israel in the shaggy dog “diplomatic process” that is followed by violence very time the Palestinian Authority does not gain another concession from Israel.

The question is how to handle violence – fight it or simply run away?

Knesset Speaker Yuli Edelstein and Barkat chided Tel Aviv on Monday for ordering an eighth-grade class to cancel a Bar Mitzvah trip to the Western Wall, beneath the Temple Mount, because it included a visit to areas where there has been “violence.” The city’s spokesman admitted that the “places” consisted only of Ammunition Hill, the site of one of the bloodiest battles in the Six-Day War in 1967.

Arab violence is frequent at the light rail route that is near Ammunition Hill but there is no spillover at the site itself, which is as safe as Dizengoff Square in Tel Aviv.

Edelstein criticized Tel Aviv’s decision from the podium of the Knesset at the opening session of this winter political circus.

Barkat told the Knesset Internal Affairs and Environment Committee, Mayor Barkat said, “Cancelling visits to Jerusalem plays into the hands of those causing the disturbances. I urge everyone to visit Jerusalem, to strengthen the city and help return a sense of calm and peace to Jerusalem.

“We must not surrender to terrorism; we must restore law and order in eastern Jerusalem.”

He called for an increased deployment of police forces over a long period of time and across a wide area; development of technological means to deter potential violators, increased enforcement and implementation stricter penalties for lawbreakers.
