Hamas Posts New ‘Dung’ Claiming Temple Mount Tunneling

Sunday, December 28th, 2014

The latest post on the website of the Hamas ‘Izz a-Din al-Qassam’ military division is a bunch of dung, probably carted over from the nearby Gate next to the Temple Mount.

The post, deliberately calculated to maximize the primitive fears of the most uneducated masses of Muslim worshipers, is beyond the realm of ridiculous. But Arabs really believe it. (Of course, it is also possible the writer himself actually also believes it; it’s impossible to gauge the level of Qur’anic education of some of the Hamas terrorist clerics who spout this insanity.)

“According to latest reports, constant Israeli excavations underneath Al Aqsa Mosque have caused serious destruction to the foundation of Buraq Square, inside the Dung Gate,” the post reads. “According to the PNN, local sources reported a huge collapse of 2 meters in the foundation. No injuries among the group of worshipers and citizens were reported.

“However, sources have confirmed the existence of a network of tunnels underneath the mosque’s courtyards, where the Israeli occupation continues to excavate in an apparent attempt to incrementally demolish the mosque and rebuild the alleged Temple.”

Ah, the eternal fear of Ishmael — that his cousin Israel will return to rebuild the Holy Temple and trigger the coming of Moshiach Tzidkenu, the Messiah, the End of Days, the Mahdi, as he is known among Muslims. Does he not know that it is the other way around — that the Messiah himself must lead the way?

Oddly, a search of the PNN (Palestinian News Network) website shows only one reference to any “collapse” in the foundation of Al Aqsa. It is found in an article posted Dec. 17, entitled “Extremist Settlers Commit Successive Breakings Into Al-Aqsa.” The writer, who appears to be suffering either from a severe attack of paranoia, or from outright delusions, accuses “Israeli extremist groups” of breaking into the mosque compound “from Al Mughrabi gate, accompanied by private forces…. Local sources aid that the attacks on the mosque took place through small but successive groups, making provocative ‘tours’ in the corners and facilities of Al-Aqsa.” The article goes on to say the “attack” came in the morning, and “occupation police” detained the Ids of worshipers until they left the mosque.

“Jews say the dome of the rock is their first holiest place and proclaim that Al-Aqsa sits above the temple mount. (sic) “Successive digging and construction works have been going on under the mosque, in addition to several clashes between the worshipers and Zionist settlers who break into the mosque, causing the breakout of violent clashes in the whole city of Jerusalem.”

For those who need a primer on the preparation of propaganda, this would make a very good start. Begin with one lie and expand upon it until swallowed whole by an entire society. Repeat as often as possible. (Feel free to peruse the entire PNN site, by the way, for a quick trip into the world of Palestinian paranoia par excellence. It is for this reason the entire population is so badly misinformed.)

For the edification of those who actually swallowed this lot of bilge, here are facts that can be verified and are listed in multiple sources internationally:

1. The Temple Mount and in particular the Al Aqsa mosque and Dome of the Rock are administered under the Waqf Islamic Authority by mutual agreement of the Kingdom of Jordan and the State of Israel. 2. The Waqf Authority is overseen by the Kingdom of Jordan, by agreement with the State of Israel. 3. Security for the Temple Mount is provided by the State of Israel, with agreement from the Kingdom of Jordan. 4. No one is allowed to enter the mosque – either one, in fact – save Muslim worshipers, except in the case of life-threatening circumstances. 5. The so-called construction works and digging under the mosque were initiated by and carried out by the Waqf, without authorization from the State of Israel. No one else would have had access. Priceless artifacts that proved the existence of the First and Second Holy Temples of the Jews in Jerusalem were destroyed in that construction; others were damaged but rescued after the discarded rubble from the construction was retrieved and sifted through in a multi-year project carried out by volunteers off-site. 6. As for the “clashes between worshipers and Zionist settlers who break into the mosque” and the “violent clashes in the whole city of Jerusalem” – that is a reference to the violent attacks by Muslims at the site on Jews who enter the Temple Mount plaza, and a cheeky smirk about the rising number of vicious attacks on Israelis around the capital, as the terrorists’ long hoped-for third intifada finally takes hold. 7. Finally, a word about the place of the Temple Mount in Judaism and Islam. The site is holy to both faiths. But Jerusalem is not mentioned even once in the Qur’an, and the Temple Mount is considered the site of the Holy of Holies in both Jewish ancient Holy Temples. The site is considered the third holiest place in the Islamic faith, the place from which the prophet Mohammed rode up to heaven on his steed El Buraq. None in Israel dispute that; but none in Israel are willing to give up their holiest site.

Yehuda Glick Running as Likud MK Candidate

Monday, December 22nd, 2014

Rabbi Yehuda Glick, who was critically wounded in an assassination attempt several weeks ago, announced he is running “symbolically” on the Likud list for the elections to the Knesset.

He is in 33rd place, and he will not be elected unless the party performs a miracle no less than his recovery and wins 33 seats.

Glick, who was shot by a Jerusalem Arab because of his activism on the Temple Mount, previously has run on even more distant places on the Likud list. He said he is not asking for a better chance to be elected because the ”boss” – his wife – knows what is best for him.

Temple Institute Produces Pure Olive Oil for Temple Menorah [video]

Saturday, December 20th, 2014

The Temple Institute in Jerusalem produced, for the first time in 2000 years, the first flask of pure olive oil fit for use in the Temple’s Menorah.

150 kg of organic olives from the Golan Heights were used to make 4 1/2 liters of olive oil, which were produced under special conditions to maintain their ritual purity and then stored in clay flasks specially made for the oil.

The oil will be brought to the Temple Institute in Jerusalem’s Old City on Monday night, December 22, 2014, the 7th night of Chanukah.

The procession will begin at 5:30 PM at Zion Gate and meet at the Golden Menorah on the Rabbi Yehuda HaLevi Stairs, opposite the site of the Holy Temple, at 6:00 PM.

At 6:30 PM In a joyous, song-filled procession, the pure olive oil will be deposited in the Temple Institute’s Holy Temple Visitors Center

Hamas on the Temple Mount

Friday, December 19th, 2014

Israel’s police force must be exhausted after a hard week arresting Jewish children on the Temple Mount with candles and a Chanukiah or for daring to say a prayer out loud, because they were clearly unable to do anything about the Hamas rally on the Temple Mount today.

Arab social media sites are full of photos of an openly-held rally for Hamas on the Temple Mount, replete with dozens of masked men, green Hamas headbands and flags.

The only thing missing are the guns and rocket launchers.

If the police keep doing such a great job, maybe that’s next.

In an unrelated story, PM Netanyahu and DM Yaalon allowed entry of hundreds of Gazans into Israel today so they could visit the Temple Mount to pray.

 

 

Boy Arrested Trying to Recreate Chanukah on Temple Mount

Wednesday, December 17th, 2014

Police arrested a Jewish boy Wednesday morning who had planned to go up to the Temple Mount.

In the boy’s bag police found a Chanukiah, oil candles and matches, according to Tazpit News Agency.

Clearly the boy wasn’t familiar enough with the original story of Chanukah.

When the police began to approach him, he should have started to play with the dreidel.

The boy is being represented by Honeinu lawyers.

Jordan Adds 75 New Guards at the Al Aqsa Mosque

Friday, December 12th, 2014

Jordan has ordered the addition of 75 new Arab guards to be deployed at the Al Aqsa mosque on the Temple Mount, the Bethlehem-based Ma’an News Agency reported.

Omar al-Kiswani, director of the mosque site, told the news agency that the orders came from King Abdullah. Ten of the new guards are women, and six firefighters, five electricians and an engineer also have been employed.

King Abdullah’s order also follows the recent production of a Knesset bill to outlaw the “Mourabitoun” Muslim guards who often have participated in riots against Jews. The “Mourabitoun” are funded by Islamists and their job as “guards” is to keep the Temple Mount free of Jews.

Several dozen guards, or rioters, currently are stationed 24 hours day at the mosque site, and the addition of 75 is  huge number, possibly double the current staff.

The beefing up of the number of guards comes weeks after almost daily riots and attempted attacks on Jews visiting the Temple Mount, an act that is enshrined in the Jordanian-Israeli peace treaty.

If the addition of 75 guards is to replace the “Mourabitoun,” then the Temple Mount might be a lot more peaceful place.

If not, then Israeli police will have their hands full the next time Muslims riot on the Temple Mount.

Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu sat down with King Abdullah last month in an effort to  end the violent by fanatic Muslims who go berserk when they see Jews on the Temple Mount.

 

US Christian Plotted to Blow Up Muslim Holy Sites in Israel

Tuesday, December 9th, 2014

A Christian American fugitive moved to Palestinian Authority areas in Judea and Samaria and obtained weapons he intended to use to attack Muslim holy sites, according to information released by police following the lifting of a gag order.

Police arrested Texas native Adam Everett Livvix, age 30,  on November 19, and said Tuesday he is wanted in the United States for drug-related offenses.

He moved to Arab villages in the Bethlehem and Hebron areas, south of Jerusalem, and hooked up with a Palestinian Authority Arab who offered him sharpshooter rifles to kill President Barack Obama during his visit in 2013.

Livvix did not accept the proposal and instead kept his aim on Muslim sites.

He left the Bethlehem-Hebron area and moved around for more than a year as an unregistered alien in Netanya and other cities, telling people he had been a member of the US Navy commando SEALS unit.

Police, acting on intelligence information, searched his home and found bullets and rifle parts that had been stolen from the IDF. They also found explosives. Livvix was living with an IDF soldier whom he asked to make a 3-pound bomb.

Not surprisingly, he has been sent for a  psychiatric examination.

Livvix was arrested for unlawful possession of arms and being an unregistered alien. He confessed to several crimes involving fraud and revealed he intended to attack Islamic holy sites. Livvix tried to escape arrest by jumping out of his seven-story apartment window.

The FBI is involved in the case. Livvix is a wanted man in Texas for theft and also has several other warrants in other states.

The last thing Israel needs is a nut case trying to blow up Muslim holy sites.

Arab propagandists still blame Israel for the attempt in 1969 by Australian Christian Denis Michael Rohan, who died in 1995, to burn down the Al Aqsa mosque on the Temple Mount

He called himself “the Lord’s emissary” and that God told him to destroy the mosque to hasten the building of the Third Temple, which would be followed by the resurrection of Jesus, assuming that the all-out war that a “successful” arson attack on the mosque would not have set the entire Middle East on fire, leaving no one around to build the Temple.

The Arab world, of course, blamed Israel for the arson attempt.

Two dozen Muslim countries complained to the United Nations Security Council, and the Jordanian delegate stated, “The Israeli authorities introduced more than one explanation for the start of the fire and at last charged an Australian with the arson. According to news that originated from Israel sources, the Australian suspect is a friend of Israel who was brought by the Jewish Agency to work for Israel.”

Israel is a holy place. It attracts people searching for God and themselves, and they often mix the two together.

Livvix hopefully will be returned to the United States, where it is unlikely that American authorities will let him out of jail as easily and quickly as Israel does.
