Falsifier on the Roof

Alerted by EOZ, I found another outrageous, and, actually, quite idiotic example of Palestinianism Disinventivity, here:

A PLO Executive Committee member spoke out against visits by rightist Israeli Jewish groups to the Al-Aqsa compound on Thursday.  Ahmad Qurie warned of "catastrophic" consequences if the Jewish groups continued to visit Al-Aqsa, saying the visits violated international law.

Qurie said Israeli police arrested Palestinian youths who were attempting to stop the groups from entering the compound. He criticized the police for making such arrests.

Earlier, the director of the Al-Aqsa Mosque told Ma'an that the visits were a "provocative and dangerous intrusion by extremists."  Azzam al-Khatib said extremist lawyer Yehuda Glick, who chairs the Temple Mount Heritage Fund, entered the mosque compound through the Moroccan Gate and later "climbed to the roof of the Dome of the Rock and verbally assaulted the guards."  Also Saturday, Palestinian security spokesman Adnan al-Dumieri told Ma'an that Israeli rightists "ascending to the roof of the Dome of the Rock" was a provocative action that would have a negative impact on Israeli-Palestinian peace negotiations.

EOZ correctly points out that there is nothing in international law that would be violated in this case.

He also points out that the claim of roof ascent is patently absurd:

...Jews can't visit there [due to Halachic restraints]. The idea that they could climb it without the Israeli security guards who accompany them stopping them is absurd. But no lie is too absurd for Palestinian Arab spokespeople.

And I wish to add two more points:

1.  Since we Jewish visitors/tourists to the Temple Mount - for we cannot be "Jews" there - are also accompanied by Waqf guards, the claim is fabricated.  And even if he meant simply ascending to the raised platform on which the Dome of the Rock is situated, Yehudah Glick, a friend, does not enter that area.

What they might be referring to was Moshe Feiglin's attempt a year ago April to enter the Dome of the Rock or a recent clip of students of Rabbi Moshe Tzuriel who ascended to the platform area on the basis of "kibbush", that when engaged in 'conquering' certain restrictions do not apply and that since the Muslim administration is preventing Jews from even the most simple acts of respect and worship there, then the ban by the Chief Rabbinate does not apply in such a case.

2.  And who is Ahmed Qurie?  The peace maker.  Shimon Peres' pal.  Of the "Oslo Accords" underground.

This is with whom we make peace?  Such a dillusioner?  A falsifier of fact.



I found a roofer:

but he's a Muslim.
