Temple Mount Ranting from the Provocational Waqf

There is this report:

Wednesday, 30 May, 2012 | 14:19
Jerusalem (SILWANIC) -- Israeli soldiers forcefully entered the courtyard of Al-Aqsa Mosque in Jerusalem’s Old City on Monday afternoon, 28 May. The mosque, regarded as the third holiest site in Islam, was surrounded by close to 200 Israeli soldiers as they entered via Dung Gate (Bab al-Maq’rabeh) and raised a 3-meter high Israeli flag in the courtyard in celebration of the Shavuot ( Jewish harvest holiday). The soldiers, scaling the mosque, then amassed on its roof and screamed “the Temple Mount, the Temple Mount” as they danced.

When Mosque volunteers attempted to intervene in the display, a verbal fight broke out between them and the soldiers. Police then arrived to escort the soldiers out of the Al-Aqsa complex, as tensions ran high throughout the Palestinian and Jewish areas of the Old City. Sheikh Azam al-Khatib of Al-Aqsa denounced the raising of the Israeli flag inside Al-Aqsa as a “provocative and dangerous act” in a climate of already heightened tensions. He stated that he has been in touch with police about pressing charges against those responsible.

Do those Border Police and a police officer in that picture above seem to fit the story line to you?

There's this:

Soldiers on Monday violated the status quo on the esplanade of the mosques in east Jerusalem by raising Israel’s flag, the head of the Islamic Waqf organization that oversees the compound charged.  “More than 180 soldiers from a special Israeli army unit today raised a large Israeli flag opposite the mosque of the Rock, which is a grave provocation,” Sheikh Azzam al-Khatib told AFP...Sheikh Khatib said the soldiers entered the esplanade during a visit approved and organized by Israeli police.He said he had made a complaint both to the Israeli police and to the Jordanian authorities. Jordan, which has a 1994 peace treaty with Israel, is the custodian of Muslim holy sites in Jerusalem.

Police spokeswoman Luba Samri confirmed to AFP that there had been an incident but said it concerned “a small flag,” and said that a senior officer at the scene quickly intervened to expel the soldiers from the compound. She said they would later face disciplinary measures.

And this:

Sheikh Ikrima Sabri, Chairman of the Supreme Islamic Council in Jerusalem and preacher at the Al-Aqsa Mosque, described the Israeli flag-raising in Al-Aqsa’s courtyards by the Israeli soldiers is a serious and unprecedented act which aims to impose Israeli control over Al-Aqsa mosque.
Sheikh Sabri told Quds press that the flag-raising came in parallel with the repeated stormings of Al-Aqsa Mosque by the occupation soldiers wearing military uniforms which confirms that Al-Aqsa is in real danger.
We are not exaggerating but we foresee the future in light of the increasing acts of the occupation that target al-Aqsa Mosque, Sheikh Sabri said, expressing his disappointment over the Arab and Muslim countries’ silence towards the Judaization process.
He warned against the consequences of allowing armed Jewish settlers to repeatedly break into the Al-Aqsa mosque, saying that such measures set off alarm bells, and adding that the Israeli storming to Al-Aqsa aim to take control of the mosque noting that the Palestinian, Arab, and international general situations encourage occupation authorities to repeat attacks on Al-Aqsa Mosque.
Sheikh Sabri stressed that Al-Aqsa mosque is an Islamic Waqf and it is only for Muslims. However the occupation authorities do not want to recognize these rights, they only want to satisfy the Zionist right in its perpetual aggression. He also added that the occupation bears the responsibility of the consequence of these aggressions and violations.

Nothing has changed since 1929 -

Between Yom Kippur of 1928 and the 18th of Av 1929, the Arabs, aided by the bumbling British, launched a campaign to do away with centuries old customs of Jews at the Western Wall as well as their historical, legal and religious rights there.  The Grand Mufti Haj Amin El-Husseini,seeking to anchor any local inauthentic nationalist sentiment, cleverly exploited religious passions.  He would not be satisfied that the Western Wall was the object of fulmination and propaganda.  No. He accused the Jews of seeking to rebuild the Temple.  Right then and there.  His proof? The Zionist flag flying over the Haram A-Sharif which was the work of montage:

If you read page 238 of this book, you'll get additional information and here, too.

After almost a year of this incitement and after taking advantage of the murder of a young Jewish boy, Avraham Mizrachi, the 1929 Riots broke out resulting in 133 Jewish dead, most of them in Hebron which forced the expulsion of its Jewish community.
