Hamas Leader Mashaal Blames Netanyahu for Bloodshed

Friday, December 5th, 2014

Hamas’ top boss Khaled Mashaal blamed Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu for the recent escalation in terror in an interview with Britain’s Sky News.

“Our fight is a national fight, but Netanyahu is turning it into a religious fight. He bears responsibility for the consequences of what is happening,” he said. “

He explained the violence as a law similar to that in physics that “for every action there’s a reaction.”

Mashaal continued, “The action of the occupation targeting the Islamic and the Christian Holy sites, in Jerusalem and Palestine, and specifically the Al Aqsa Mosque, brings about the angry Palestinian reaction. Netanyahu is playing with fire when he allows members of his government, the Knesset, and the extremists to repeatedly storm the Al Aqsa mosque – that’s dangerous.”

Since he is so sensitive to the Muslim claim that the Temple Mount is only for Muslims, how does he explain the massacre of four Jews whole they were praying in a synagogue when they were shot and axed to death last month?

Well, you see, this was a “rare occasion” that a synagogue was targeted, but Netanyahu angered the Muslims, so he is to blame.

“We can’t take events out of context, Mashaal reasoned. “ I told you, for every action there is a reaction. Netanyahu is playing with fire and he will bear the consequences of that. The Aqsa mosque is for the Muslims. The Muslims were blocked from praying there. The soldiers and the police and the right-wing extremists were allowed to storm in with their shoes, into the sanctuary of the Mosque — this is playing with fire. Netanyahu is responsible for the killing of the Israelis first, and the Palestinian deaths that followed, because of what is being committed against our people and for them not having hope on the horizon for a just settlement of the Palestinian cause.”

Why didn’t anyone realize that until now? Jews “storm” the Muslim Al Qaeda Aqsa mosque, so Muslims attack Jews in their own house of worship.

You know, an eye for an eye, or in this case, an eye for a lie.

Jews visiting the Temple Mount do not “storm” the Al Aqsa mosque, the term the Arab world uses every time a Jew steps foot on the holy site, all of which it considers the “compound” of the Al Aqsa Mosque

The only time the mosque area is stormed is when police respond to Muslim “worshippers” who pray by trying to kill the Jews.

“The Palestinian people no longer have anything to lose,” he said in the interview..” In light of the continuation of the occupation and settlements, stealing the land, the attacks on women and children, and the Holy sites – this is spontaneous….

“It gives two messages: the first message is that the Israeli stubbornness, combined with the international impotence in solving the Palestinian issue with a just solution, enabling the Palestinian people their self-determination, and getting rid of occupation and building an independent state — this will lead to chaos in the region, not just in the Palestinian arena, but an open conflict — a blood bath.”

Blood, More blood. Keep the Jewish blood flowing until there is none left.

And it’s all Netanyahu’s fault.

“I think Netanyahu’s position is now revealed to everyone in international public opinion,” according to Mashaal.” Even in the West. Put Hamas aside, what about Mr. Mahmoud Abbas? He has positions which satisfy western and American standards. And with all this, what has Netanyahu done in return for it? Nothing. He thwarted all peace initiatives even the American efforts that were hosted by Mr. John Kerry for almost a year.

Court Rejects Yehuda Glick’s Appeal to Visit Temple Mount

Thursday, December 4th, 2014

The Jerusalem District Court of Chelem rejected on Thursday an appeal from Rabbi Yehuda Glick to overturn a police order that bars him from returning to the Temple Mount until the judicial system decides on a case in which he is charged with pushing a Muslim woman.

Glick’s lawyers said they will appeal the decision to the Supreme Court.

He is recovering from the attempt to assassinate him several weeks ago, when he was critically wounded with four gunshots at point-blank range shot by a Jerusalem Arab after Glick finished lecturing about the Temple Mount at the Begin Heritage Center in Jerusalem.

He was looking forward to returning to the Temple Mount, where he was able to visit earlier this year only after numerous appeals to the court to overturn a police ban on his appearance.

Glick, who is recognized even by Israel’s leftist media as mild-mannered, denies the charge filed against him that he pushed a Muslim woman.

The accusation was a very convenient excuse for the police to order that Glick stay away from the holy site. The Jerusalem court on Thursday accepted the government’s position that his appearance there would be a risk to public security.

That followed the so-called thinking of National Police Commissioner Yohanan Danino and Public Security Minister Yitzchak Aharonovitch, both of whom have stated that public figures such as Knesset Members also should not be allowed on the Temple Mount because it upsets the Muslims.

Rabbi Yehuda Glick Pleads to Return to Temple Mount

Sunday, November 30th, 2014

On Sunday the Jerusalem District Court held a hearing into the question of whether to continue a restraining order issued by the court against Temple Mount activist Rabbi Yehuda Glick.

The matter was raised by Glick in response to the restraining order, which Glick contended prevented him from earning a living.

The restraining order had been issued after a complaint was filed by an Arab woman who claimed that Glick had pushed her on the Temple Mount.

Because Glick was unable to physically appear in court due to ill health — this, following an assassination attempt last month by an Arab terrorist who pumped four bullets into his chest at point-blank range — Glick instead sent a detailed letter to the Court in which he listed his claims.

Here are some key points of the letter, before you read the whole thing:

With regard to the case in question, the plaintiff wishes to accuse me of assault. She first claimed that the event occurred on 2 September 2014, but after I proved that I was not at the Temple Mount that afternoon, the respondent changed the story and stated the event occurred on 31 August 2014.

As a religious Jew coming to the Temple Mount, I am always accompanied by police, who stand right beside me. It should be noted that two police officers and one commanding officer that were from the area warned the plaintiff that they did not see the events for which she filed the complaint.

It is inconceivable that I would push a woman, let alone knock her to the ground, without all of the police officers in the area having seen such an event.

All of my tours on the Temple Mount are conducted with participants and Arab elements in place, and watched by police through fixed and mobile video security cameras. I was fully apparent and visible at the scene from four different angles. Anyone can see that I am the victim here — yet instead of reacting in self-defense, I turn and ask police in the area to distance the rioters.

The courts are expected to decide either this Thursday, or Tuesday next week whether or not to extend or cancel the restraining order.

Here is Yehuda Glick’s letter (translated):


“I really wanted to participate in the discussion of my appeal against the decision to bar me from the Temple Mount,” wrote Glick. “But as is well known, an attempt was made on my life on October 29, 2014 by a Muslim extremist (from this alone one easily learns who is the attacker, and who is the attacked, with regard to those who choose to go up to the Temple Mount.)

“After ten days in which I was sedated and on a respirator, and an additional week in which I remained in intensive care, plus an another week in the Department of Surgery, just a few days ago I was released for the purpose of extensive rehabilitative services. Despite that, I requested permission to participate in these court proceedings; however, this past Shabbat I became severely weakened and thus cannot appear physically in the court room.

Therefore, I respectfully request the court herewith accept this letter in lieu of my appearance and verbal testimony:

For 25 years, since 1989, I have guided groups in to the Temple Mount. To this day, I teach hundreds of groups, including thousands of participants, including Jews and non-Jews, secular and observant alike.

In recent years, this activity has become the means for my livelihood, and I guide groups sometimes three to four times a day.

With regard to the case in question, the plaintiff wishes to accuse me of assault. She first claimed that the event occurred on 2 September 2014, but after I proved that I was not at the Temple Mount that afternoon, the respondent changed the story and stated the event occurred on 31 August 2014.

It should be noted that the plaintiff does not claim, God forbid, that I attack on a regular basis, but rather claims it to be a single event.

It should be noted that since the so-called “incident” I have gone up to the Temple Mount eight times, and at no point has any such event occurred. (all during September 2014) Thus it is clearly proven there is no danger to the public at the Temple Mount vis a vis any event relating to my self.

As a religious Jew coming to the Temple Mount, I am always accompanied by police, who stand right beside me. It should be noted that two police officers and one commanding officer that were from the area warned the plaintiff that they did not see the events for which she filed the complaint.

Jerusalem Arabs Planned to Attack Feiglin and Glick on Temple Mount

Saturday, November 29th, 2014

Partially released for publication (Additional information related to the planned attack is expected to be released in the coming days):

Three eastern Jerusalem Arabs were indicted Friday for plotting to attack Knesset Member Moshe Feiglin and Rabbi Yehuda Glick on the Temple Mount last month, the day before another Jerusalem Arab tried to kill Glick.

The indictment was filed in Jerusalem on Friday against three Arabs, one of them, age 18 and the others 20 and 21 years old. They planned to stay overnight at the holy site and attack with fireworks and rocks when Glick and Feiglin were planning to visit the next morning, October 30. The day before, Glick was nearly fatally shot after he spoke at the Begin Center in Jerusalem.

The terrorists’ plan was that during an ensuing riot, they would flee to the Al Aqsa mosque and then walk away, untouched among a throng of Muslims.

Police had kept the arrests of the three Arabs under cover until Friday, which helps explain why National Police Commissioner Yohanan Danino and Public Security Minister Yitzchak Aharonovitch have been so adamant that Knesset Members not visit the Temple Mount.

The MK’s presence only riles up Arab terrorists and makes trouble for the police. If you can eliminate the cause for attempted murder, then there won’t be murders.

The only problem with this scenario, as most of our readers know, is that telling Arab crazies that Knesset Members cannot visit the Temple Mount has the opposite effect and gives them the incentive to plan attacks on any Jew who dares arrive at the site.

The reason for violence is not Knesset Members who visit the Temple Mount.

The reason for violence is that the security and court system allows them to be violent.

 

IDF Chief Rabbi: Nothing is Holy to Muslims on Temple Mount except Al Aqsa

Friday, November 28th, 2014

IDF Chief Rabbi Brig. Gen. Rafi Peretz recently told yeshiva students that the Temple Mount has no religious significance to Muslims except for the Al Aqsa mosque.

The Kipa website published a video and partial transcript of Rabbi Rafi Peretz’s lesson to students at the Otsem “mechina,” a pre-military Torah academy.

During his lecture whose focus was on the holiness of Israel, Rabbi Peretz said, “There is no reference to Jerusalem anywhere in the Kuran, not even one hint. The Arabs simply imagine. Ninety percent of them don’t know what is written in the Kuran.

“There is an interpretation that explains something or another in the Kuran about a dream [in which the Prophet Mohammed goes up to the Temple Mount] but this is not even an interpreting but is a fable.”

He added, “The only mosque that is considered holy is Al Aqsa. Nothing else on the Temple amount has any religious significance [to Muslims]. What is the Al Aqsa mosque? It is written in the Kuran, “Make me a house of worship at the edge” – buy the intention is ‘the edge of Mecca.’

“When they [Muslims] bow down on the Temple Mount, their backs are the Temple Mount because the edge is the Saudi Arabia Peninsula.

“So what are they doing on the Temple Mount?”

The IDF spokesman responded to reports on the Torah lessons by stating that Rabbi Peretz’s remarks “were taken out of context and do not reflect his or the IDF’s position” and that “the rabbi apologizes if his words offended the Arab population.”

However, the video below, from 13:00-16:00 minutes, clearly shows the remarks were not out of context.

His apology was necessary for political purposes, and Rabbi Peretz, who spoke while in civilian clothes, probably is sorry that his lecture was publicized.

But he spoke the truth, and there is no reason to apologize for that.

Offending Muslims is not politically correct in the Western world, which is why radical Islam is taking over Europe. Next stop, the United States of America.

Rabbi Peretz’s remarks at the Torah lesson, which spoke of the holiness of the Temple Mount to Jews since the time of Avraham, highlight the core of the “Arab-Israeli struggle.”

It is not about land.

It is not about borders.

It is not even Islam vs. Judaism.

It is not even Muslims vs. Jews, because Jews simply are the front line for every other non-Muslim who stands in the way of the radical Islamic insanity to have the world for itself so it can lead it to destruction.

If radical Islam can defeat the Jews, it knows no one else has a chance.

That is why radical Islam wants the Temple Mouton all to itself.

Andi if this offends radical Muslims, I do not apologize.

Al Aqsa Mosque ‘Stand-Up’ Preacher Calls for Annihilation of the United States

Friday, November 28th, 2014

A spur of the moment speech by a Muslim at the Al Aqsa mosque on the Temple Mount called for annihilation of the United States.

The speech was translated and posted this week by the Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI), and the video shows the young man, named Ali Abu Ahmed, railing against the Jews and West.

Ahmed’s voice and delivery definitely show him as having great potential to be a real Islamist preacher, breathing fire and brim storm against the evils of Islam, mainly Israel, Jews and the United States. The Palestinian Authority should place him on the “Arabs Got Talent.”

The “freedom of speech” in the mosque is a result of “goodwill measures” by Israel, at the insistence of the United States and King Abdullah of Jordan, to “reduce tensions” by eliminating restrictions on the ages of who can enter the Temple Mount.

If this reducing tension, what does “escalating tensions” mean?

Ahmed spoke from the mosque that is Islam’s third most holy site, proving once again what the worshippers pray for.

The Western world, as well as Israeli Public Security Minister Yitzchak Aharonovitch and national police commissioner Yohanan Danino, don’t want Jews praying near the mosque or even on the Temple Mount at all.

They are afraid that a Jewish presence will cause violence, but the freedom of people like Ahmed to scream for the destruction of Israel and the United States apparently is not incitement. It is the radical Islamic version of prayer.

If Jews were allowed to pray on the Temple Mount, the prayers for peace would certainly upset the Muslims. If there were peace, their preachers would be out of a job.

As for the speech itself, which can be seen with English sub-titles in the video below, Ahmed said Jews are “the most vile of creatures. Tune in around 2:00 into the video, towards the end, and you can see and hear Ahmed declaring,” Oh, Allah, annihilate America and its coalition.”

Police Chief: Think of 1 Billion Muslims and Don’t Pray on Temple Mount

Tuesday, November 25th, 2014

National police commissioner Yohanan Danino publicly criticized on Tuesday a new decision by the attorney general that gives permission to Knesset Member Moshe Feiglin to continue visiting the Temple Mount.

He also accused “right-wing extremists” of igniting the recent Arab riots and murderous attacks by trying to change the so-called Temple Mount status quo, a long-standing government policy that allows Jews to ascend the Temple Mount but prohibits them from praying there.

The Supreme Court has questioned whether the discrimination against Jews is legal, but no one has brought the issue to the justices for a ruling. It is likely that the police would argue that the prohibition is needed as a security measure.

Danino left no doubt on Tuesday where the police stand – as far away from the Temple Mount as possible.

He stated at the annual Sderot Conference Tuesday that anyone who says that status quo should be changed “influences one billion Muslims in the world.”

His concern for Muslims is remarkable.

Public Security Minister Yitzchak Aharonovitch stated earlier this month that Knesset Members should not go on the Temple, and he also blamed them for violence, It is not the fault of Arab attackers that they pick up meat cleavers, knives and guns to kill Jews while they pray n a synagogue. It is the fault of the Jews for saying that they should be allowed to pray on the Temple Mount.

Perhaps the police commissioner and his boss would like Jews to change their prayers and not stop beseeching God for the Third Temple.

If the Jews simply would behave as the Muslims tell them to behave and stop making a big deal out of  going to the holy site, the Arab world would thank Israel and stop killing Jews.

Arabs would not even dream of violence if Jews would stop dreaming about the Third Temple. All of those eastern Jerusalem murderers and all of the rioters would have stayed home and enjoyed their hookahs.

If Danino things that anyone who wants to change the status quo is a “right-wing extremist,” then he is including Feiglin and Housing Minister Uri Ariel.

In his words today, “Anyone who wants to change the status quo on the Temple Mount should be prohibited from going there.”

The tactic of labeling someone a “right-wing extremist” is very effective. It places them outside the pale and makes them enemies of law and order.

Whenever Israel’s establishment media and political leaders want to oppose something, all they have to do is say that “right-wing extremists” are behind it.

As for Attorney General Yehuda Weinstein’s decision to allow Feiglin to visit the Temple Mount, Danino said it was a “mistake,” and Feiglin called on Danino to retract his statement.

“Perhaps Danino thinks the Temple Mount needs not be in our hands,” Feiglin stated. “He [Danino] is running away from his responsibility. His job is to protect Israeli sovereignty and calm on the Temple Mount.”

It is safe to assume that Danino thinks that if Jews who want to change the status quo would stay off the Temple Mount, there would be calm.

But judging by police tactics that harass Jews who simply want to visit the Temple Mount, without doing anything so radical as to pray there, Danino would be very happy to give the Muslims a long-term lease on the holy site and let Jews simply pray in their synagogues, even if they dare stir up trouble for one million Muslims by praying for the Third Temple .

That way, the police can go back to patrolling the streets, except for those in eastern Jerusalem, where those right-extremists Jews upset Arabs by living there.
