Freedom of Worship on Temple Mount: Gazan Arabs, 190; Jews, 0

Sunday, June 7th, 2015

The score was 190-0 for freedom of worship for Arabs from Gaza and zero for Jews on Friday.

Israel allowed nearly 200 Gazans, all over the age of 60, to pray at the mosque on the Temple Mount, eight months after 500 Arabs from Gaza prayed there for the first time since 2007, according to the Ma’an News Agency, based in Bethlehem.

The last time Israel allowed Jews to pray regularly at the Temple Mount was nearly 2,000 years ago, during the time of the Second Temple, which a growing number of Muslim clerics like to pretend never existed.

Permission for Arabs from Gaza to travel to Jerusalem and pray at the Al Aqsa mosque is part of the last year’s ceasefire between Hamas and Israel that was supposed to end the most recent barrage of missile attacks on Israel.

Hamas again broke the ceasefire on Saturday with rocket launches against Israel but blamed them on rival terrorist groups.

Israel continues to honor its end of the ceasefire and allows Gazans to pray at the Temple Mount mosque, where Hamas banners and even Islamic State (ISIS) banners frequently fly amid sermons that preach jihad against Jews, all in the name of freedom of worship, if you are not Jewish.

 

Boston ISIS Terrorist Intended to Behead Pamela Geller

Thursday, June 4th, 2015

The radical Islamic State (ISIS)-inspired terrorist who was gunned down by Boston police Wednesday originally intended to behead activist Pamela Geller but later changed his plans and decided to chop off policemen’s heads, CNN reported.

Police killed 26-year-old Usaamah Rahim when he refused to drop his 8-inch military knife, purchased through Amazon, when officers approached to arrest him for the murder plot.

Geller, who is Jewish, is in the forefront of the campaign against radical Islam and grabbed headlines last month when her American Freedom Defense staged a contest for drawing cartoons of the Prophet Mohammed in Texas. The event earned her plenty of harsh criticism for rabble rousing, and she walks around with security guards.

She told CNN Wednesday:

They targeted me for violating Sharia blasphemy laws. They mean to kill everyone who doesn’t do their bidding and abide by their law voluntarily. This is a showdown for American freedom. Will we stand against this savagery or bow down to them and silence ourselves?

Rahim and his alleged conspirator David Wright are said to have dropped their plans to make Geller their first target and decided approximately two hours before the clash with police:

 …Going to … go after them, those boys in blue. Cause … it’s the easiest target.

Wright was arraigned in a Boston court Wednesday and was charged with obstructing a federal investigation by destroying Rahim’s Smartphone that contained evidence of their plot.

Court documents also revealed that Rahim allegedly told Wright after purchasing knives:

I just got myself a nice little tool. You know it’s good for carving wood and … carving sculptures.”

A group of four or five Boston police officers approached Rahim to arrest him when he moved towards them with his drawn military knife and was shot and killed.

Boston Police Commissioner William Evans said that Rahim has been under surveillance and that “he was someone we were watching for quite some time.”

A video shows the shooting, but Rahim’s brother Ibrahim has a different version, which he posted on social media:

Boston Imam Abdullah Faaruuq also doubts that the video shows the whole picture. He said:

We can’t say what happened. We weren’t there. We do see a very vague video that is not clear as to what transpired. It wasn’t at a bus stop. He wasn’t shot in the back and there is not detail enough on the video to tell us exactly what happened.

The Council of American-Islamic Relations’ spokesman also joined the doubters and stated:

We have a number of questions. Why exactly was he being followed? What was the probable cause for this particular stop? Were there any video cameras or body cameras of the incident? How do you reconcile the two versions of the story, the family version being that he was on his normal commute to work at a bus stop?

The denial of the police account and the accusations that police simply gunned down Rahim in cold blood underlines the growing problem in the United States of radical Islam and is a carbon copy of the same mindset of the Islamic world in the Middle East, including the Palestinian Authority and some Israel Arab leaders.

No matter what, the guilty party is the victim.

That is why Rahim, the “victim,” wanted to behead Geller.

She has been active in the campaign against radical Islam since the 9/11 attacks and began her Atlas Shrugs blog, which re-published the cartoons from 2007 of Mohammed, showing him with a bomb in his turban and which set off Muslim riots throughout the Muslim world.

Critics have accused of Islamphobia, and she was banned from speaking at the annual Conservative Political Action Conference in 2019 after four years of having addressed the event. She said she was kept from speaking because she had accused officials of the organization of being “members of the Muslim Brotherhood and secret Islamist agents.”

Police Arrest Groom for Allegedly Praying on Temple Mount

Sunday, May 10th, 2015

Jerusalem police Sunday morning arrested a young man who ascended the Temple Mount allegedly prayed there before his wedding at night.

The Honenu legal defense organization said one of its lawyers is at the police station and trying to win the release of the man.

The Israeli government accepted the Muslim Waqf authority on the Temple Mount. The Waqf forbids Jews and Christians from carrying any religious items to the holy site, and it goes berserk when one of its guards sees a Jew even moving his lips and possibly uttering a prayer to God.

It is not known exactly what the groom allegedly said.

The Chief Rabbinate of Israel prohibits Jews from ascending the Temple Mount on the basis of Halachic rulings, but many rabbis in recent years have permitted and even encouraged going to certain areas after the traditional immersion in a ritual bath.

Last week, a groom identified as Michael Basus visited the holy site before his wedding and stopped long enough to speak at the Grooms and Mourners Gate to talk about Judaism.

The Talmud relates a discussion of how Jews in the time of the Holy Temples comforted mourners and praise the grooms.

Below is the video, in Hebrew, of Basus and his friends on the way to the Temple Mount, under police guard.

Court Allows Glick on Temple Mount – without Cell Phone

Tuesday, May 5th, 2015

The Jerusalem Court ruled Tuesday morning that Rabbi Yehuda Glick can ascend the Temple Mount once a month on condition that he does not take a mobile cell phone with him.

Judge Miraim Kasklasi rejected demands from the police that Glick be barred from the Temple Mount because he is a “dangerous man.”

Glick, who has recovered from critical bullet wounds from an assassination attempt last year, said last week he would be willing to visit the site in a wheelchair and with his hands tied. His lawyer told the court that if he is so dangerous, the police should not even let him out of his house.

The judge said Tuesday that Glick cannot take his cell phone with him in order not “to aggravate Muslims.”

The court apparently does not understand that it is not Glick and not his cell phone that infuriates Muslims on the Temple Mount. Rather, it is Glick’s faith.

God does not need a cell phone to hear prayers, which is why the Muslim Waqf prohibits them from being uttered

British Posters Warn Muslim Voting in Elections Violates Islamic Law

Sunday, April 19th, 2015

Radical Islamists in the city of Cardiff, Wales have posted messages warning Muslims that the Muslim version of democracy means they should not vote in upcoming elections.

The posters were in response to a local Muslim council campaign to urge people to vote, which the radicals consider blasphemous.

The posters read:

Democracy is a system whereby man violates the right of Allah and decides what is permissible or impermissible for mankind, based solely on their whims and desires….

Islam is the only real, working solution for the UK.

It is a comprehensive system of governance where the laws of Allah are implemented and justice is observed.

A Welsh parent told the London Daily Mail he saw 20 posters as he walked his 2-year-old child to nursery and said, “It was quite chilling and threatening to see these posters.”

The Cardiff Council ordered the posters removed.

Muslim Council of Wales official Sahar al-Faifi told the newspaper, ‘The reason behind these posters is we have had such a successful voter registration campaign across mosques in Cardiff. We have been doing it every Friday for three months to encourage worshippers in an un-partisan way to participate in their civic duties.

“Most mosques were on board and the hateful people behind these posters do not represent us.”

 

 

Police Allow Muslim Officials to Damage Holy Floor of Temple Mount Rock [video]

Friday, April 17th, 2015

Archaeologists are furious at the police for allowing the Muslim Waqf on the Temple Mount earlier this week to damage the ancient mosaic floor that covers the Foundation Rock of the Temple Mount.

Known in Hebrew as Even HaShetiya, it is the rock from which the world was created, according to the Kabbalistic literature known as the Zohar, which states:

The world was not created until God took a stone called Even HaShetiya and threw it into the depths where it was fixed from above till below, and from it the world expanded. It is the center point of the world and on this spot stood the Holy of Holies.

Adam and Eve were created there, according to tradition, which also teaches that Cain, Abel, Noah and Abraham offered sacrifices there. It also is the foundation of the two destroyed Holy Temples. The Palestinian Authority has methodically been trying to destroy all evidence of the existence of the Temples that Muslim clerics increasing teach never existed,

This week’s destruction robbed archaeologists of a rare opportunity to photograph the mosaic floor over the rock as well as the cave underneath, archaeologist Tzachi Devira told the Kipa website.

Devira, director of the project to sift debris from the Temple Mount, directly blamed the police for illegally allowing the Waqf to carry out work without supervision.

He recently learned that the Muslims were preparing to change the carpets that cover the floor and the cave, giving Devira a “rare historic opportunity” to photograph the mosaic.

He said “stubbornness of the police” prevented his entry while the Muslims carried out their work behind closed doors earlier this week.

Devira said that the Waqf was laying down new carpets purchased with funds donated by the Kingdom of Jordan.

However, Temple Mount activists who try to observe Muslim activity on the Temple Mount discovered that the Waqf exploited the changing of the carpets to damage the floor without legally required police presence.. Pictures that were taken by Muslims inside the holy site were leaked, and parts of the floor were seen, exposing mosaics from different periods.

Devira and others urgently appealed to Cabinet ministers, including Housing Minister Uri Ariel, who in turn asked Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu to intervene because of fears that the Muslims would destroy more evidence of the existence of the Temples.

The Yisrael HaYom newspaper quoted Ariel having written to the Prime Minister:

The Waqf began a renovation project at the Dome of the Rock, the site of the Temple, and this includes re-flooring and potentially additional activities whose nature are unknown, all the while using heavy equipment.

These works are unprecedented and warrant the review of the Ministerial Committee on Archeological Digs at Holy Sites, and the fact that there is heavy machinery involved makes this all the more pressing.

Police finally ordered the work to stop immediately, and Kipa reported that an Israel Antiquities Authority spokesman said “work had not been coordinated.”

Devira asserts that the Waqf is forbidden to carry out any work without the presence of a policeman and an archaeologist.

Muslims Chase Jews Off Temple Mount [video]

Monday, April 6th, 2015

Police barred Jews from the Temple Mount as of 9 a.m. Monday after failing to prevent masked Muslims from chasing the Jews away from the holy site.

The video below, at 1:14, shows police escorting Jews returning from the Temple Mount through the Old City, where a veiled Muslim woman motioned to police as she stood next to a poster that read, “I am banned from Al- Aqsa Mosque.” The woman helped the policeman remove the “offensive” poster.

Hundreds of Jews arrived at the Temple Mount on Sunday, the first day of Chol HaMoed, and the police were not prepared for such large numbers.

They allowed only one-fourth of the Jews to enter, according to Temple Mount activists. Police also limited their numbers while allowing Muslims, some of them masked and hired by Muslim clerics, to roam around the Temple Mouton and harass Jews.

Police did not interfere with the Muslims, none of whom were detained, and they escorted the Jews off the holy site as a jeering crowd of Muslims followed them.

Visits by Jews on the Temple Mount Monday were restricted to only three minutes. Jews were separated from tourists and subjected to body searches to make sure they did not bring any religious objects with them.

As the Muslim crowds grew, the police decided to bar entry to all Jews as of 9 a.m.
