The Saudi Gazette can't count:
Israeli authorities on Monday began new excavations near Al-Aqsa Mosque Complex in occupied Jerusalem, a Palestinian foundation said.
...It warned that the use of huge machines in the excavation work in the area puts in serious danger the foundations of the Al-Aqsa Mosque...The foundation stressed that goal of excavations “is to Judaize Jerusalem and the collapse of Al-Aqsa Mosque to build the so-called second temple on ruins of it.”
As EOZ notes:
Hate to break it to ya, Aqsa Foundation guys, but if you want to prevent Jews from building the Second Temple, you are a tad late.Yes but what about those "huge machines"?
Let's recall what the Waqfists did when they raped the earth of Solomon's Stables to build a mosque, Al-Marwani, for 10,000 and then a second one, El-Aqsa K'dima (Ancient Aqsa, directly beneath the eastern half of the Al-Aqsa Mosque building is another subterranean area, leading from the courtyard in front of the Mosque to the Double Gate in the southern wall of the Sanctuary. Sealed for hundreds of years...), and then an entry plaza?
In 1996 the Waqf began construction in the structures known since Crusader times as Solomon's Stables, and in the Eastern Hulda Gate passageway...In 1999, the Waqf agreed on [the] necessity [for an emergency exit], which was also acknowledged by the Israel Antiquities Authority (IAA). But the IAA criticized the Waqf's use of bulldozers, and said that salvation archaeology needed to be performed first. Gabriel Barkay, an Israeli professor, said the construction demolished structures dating to the Twelfth Century Crusades, and went on without archaeological supervision. He said the construction used ancient stones from early Jewish buildings and used them to make modern ones. Israel Finkelstein has described the project as "the greatest devastation to have recently been inflicted on Jerusalem’s archaeological heritage".
And how did they gouge out without regard to archaeological demands a trench? With their hands? Shovels?
Don't the so-called disinterested neutral observers see the lying and fabrications that characterize this propaganda?
