Israeli Security Forces Shut Down Hamas-Linked Charity In Nazareth

Friday, September 12th, 2014

The Israel Security Agency (Shin Bet) and police have shut down a Hamas-affiliated organization in Nazareth that promoted unrest on the Temple Mount.

The offices of Amara al-Aqsa wa al-Muqadasat, a group founded in 2009 by the Islamic Movement that was behind a series of Temple Mount riots, has ties with Hamas and has the goal of preventing “Jewish domination” of the Temple Mount, according to the Shin Bet..

“This activity led to an escalation of tensions on the Temple Mount, which promotes disturbances that frequently break out there, and undermines the security of visitors to the site, while harming Israeli sovereignty at the site,” it said.

Moshe Feiglin: Netanyahu Has Conceded Temple Mount [video]

Friday, September 5th, 2014

Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu has conceded sovereignty over the Temple Mount to Jordan, and the holy site is being overrun by jihadists, Likud MP and Jewish Leadership chairman Moshe Feiglin wrote on his Facebook page Thursday.

The Prime Minister announced on Thursday that following protests from Jordan over a new bridge for non-Muslims leading from the Western Wall Plaza to the Temple Mount, he ordered its removal.

His office stated, “There was a structure built without proper authority; there is no real need for this structure. When the Jordanians approached us, we of course agreed. There was no objective reason to have it there in first place. Everyone understands the sensitivity of the area and there’s no logical reason to add extra sources of friction.”

MK Moshe Feiglin wrote on his Facebook page on Thursday, “About half a year ago I submitted a Knesset query to PM Netanyahu on the topic of Israel’s loss of sovereignty on the Temple Mount and its transfer to Jordan. This query has not yet been addressed.

“But yesterday, it became clear that PM Binyamin Netanyahu is transferring the sovereignty on the Temple Mount to Jordan in practice.

“The only approach for non-Muslims to the Temple Mount is via the Mugrabim Gate, overlooking the Western Wall. Following an earthquake, the original approach to the gate collapsed in 2004. The government had planned to build a new stone bridge to the Mugrabim Gate, but capitulated to world pressure and sufficed with a rickety, temporary wooden bridge.

“Engineers from the Jerusalem Municipality declared the temporary bridge unsafe, and over the past few weeks a new, safer wooden bridge has been built under the older bridge. Jordan, however, demanded that the bridge be removed and yesterday, work to dismantle it began.

“This capitulation to the Jordanian demand and the dismantling of a safety bridge that was erected over the Western Wall Plaza (it is not even on the Temple Mount) testifies to the fact that the PM has indeed conceded Israeli sovereignty on the Temple Mount.

“When ISIS and Hamas flags fly freely on the Temple Mount and when the Prime Minister transfers sovereignty on the Mount to radical Islam, Israel’s hold on the Negev, Galil and mixed Jewish-Arab cities is lost.

“ISIS flags can already be seen in Sachnin and Taibeh, Arab towns in northern Israel. The PM’s demonstration of weakness encourages Israel’s enemies in the south and north, infusing them with hope to continue to fight us.”

ISIS on the Temple Mount

Sunday, August 24th, 2014

While Jews can’t pray on our holiest site, and police make sure no Israeli flags are taken up, Muslims have no problem bringing in and waving an ISIS flag on the Temple Mount.

Maybe we’ll allow them to run executions there too, while we’re at it.

Yehuda Glick Barred from Temple Mount

Thursday, August 21st, 2014

Police blocked Rabbi Yehuda Glick, a licenced tour guide and the founder of the Haliba movement which calls for Jewish civil rights on the Temple Mount, from entering the holy compound Thursday.  Glick has been banned repeatedly from the site for having prayed at the Mount, a move police say has sparked unrest. Police have also sought a permanent ban against Glick, but the High Court of Justice has rejected that request.

Israel Radio reported that Glick accused the police of making him a scapegoat for their failure to prevent repeated Muslim rioting at the site. He also noted that the decision to bar him from the Mount contradicted a court order instructing police to allow him to visit the Temple Mount.

Shin Bet Busts Hamas Plot for Terrorist Attacks and Coup to Oust Abbas

Monday, August 18th, 2014

The Israel Security Agency (Shin Bet) revealed Monday evening it has arrested 93 Hamas terrorists in Judea and Samaria and eastern Jerusalem the past two months and broke up a Hamas plot to stage large-scale terrorist attacks in Israel and a coup to overthrow Palestinian Authority chairman Mahmoud Abbas.

A Hamas leader in Turkey directed the terrorist cells, which received approximately $600,000 from sources in Jordan to buy homes to hide terrorists and to purchase weapons.

Hamas set up in 46 cities and villages in Judea, Samaria and eastern Jerusalem to incite a resurgence of the intifada with terrorist attacks whose targets included the Temple Mount.

More than 70 indictments were filed in military court the past few days while the plot was kept secret under a gag order.

Police, soldiers and security personnel uncovered more than $175,000 during the arrests and found 24 rifles, six revolvers, seven rocket launchers and huge amounts of rifle cartridges and bullets.

The wide-scale terror network, set up under the noses of Mahmoud Abbas’ security forces in Judea and Samaria, was headed by Turkey-based Salah al-Aruri, whom Israel released from jail in 2010 in return for his agreeing to leave the country.

Al-Aruri had barely crossed the Allenby Bridge at the Jordanian border when the plot to set up Hamas cells was born, and he recruited his driver, Riad Nasser who lives in an Arab village near Ramallah, to lead the Hamas network from within Judea and Samaria.

Nasser has been in Israeli jails several times for terrorist activity and was last taken into custody last December. He has been question about the Hamas terrorist network for nearly three months.

Their plan was to stage large-scale terrorist attacks with mass casualties, with the anticipated result of weakening Abbas’ control and eventually ousting him.

Among the terrorists who belonged to the cells were academic students and seasoned terrorists. One of those arrested was trained in Malaysia to hack computers.

The large-scale arrests and revelation of a network of Hamas cells disproves claims that Hamas is weak in Judea and Samaria and that Abbas’ regime is able to stamp out terror and maintain security.
