Plot Plot

We have a new 'plot' about a plot of land:-

PA Warns against Jewish Bid to Annex al-Aqsa Mosque

Chairman of the Jerusalem Affairs Department in the PLO, Ahmed Qurei, warned on Wednesday of an Israeli plan to register Muslims’ holy al-Aqsa Mosque as an Israeli state property to be officially run by the so-called Tabu (land registration) office.  The Aqsa Foundation for Endowment and Heritage (AFEH) Foundation notified of Israeli intents to urge the future government to endorse the bid as a means to set the stage for establishing a Jewish synagogue over parts of the holy Mosque.

Queri considered these attempts as...but a reflection of the government’s policies.”

The move comes after the Yishai organization, led by the fanatic rabbi Shmuel Eliyahu, failed to reap the authorities’ approval of a request to enlist al-Aqsa’s overall area as an Israeli state property. Queri said these attempts are aimed at “Judaizing” the Mosque and re-building the alleged Jewish Temple, which Jews say it was destroyed in the pre-Christ era. “This is the most serious [action taken by Israel] that jeopardizes the future of the holy city.”

The Foundation also warned of an Israeli tender to build a Jewish synagogue in the eastern part of the al-Aqsa compound, between the Marwani Masjid and Bab al-Rahma...

I think they should review the material I published here.  I had another site in mind, on the western portion of the Temple Mount precinct:-

Of course, this is a rehash of old claims.  If only they were true and progressing.

But the point is that if Muslims can demand prayer and property rights in a cathedral in Spain

Hundreds of thousands of people have signed a petition to prevent Cordoba's famous cathedral becoming the property of the Catholic Church.  The building was originally a mosque before housing a cathedral in the fifteenth century.

and the parallel with the Temple Mount is most clear here:

Built on the site of a Visigothic church in the 8th century, the mosque was a focal point in Córdoba...When the Christians reconquered it in the 13th century, they built a cathedral in the centre of the mosque.  The site is now under the control of the diocese of Córdoba, which has begun referring to the site as the cathedral rather than the city council-approved name of the Mosque-Cathedral of Córdoba, Andalusia’s minister for tourism Rafael Rodríguez told El País. “Hiding its past as a mosque is like calling the Alhambra the palace of Charles V – it’s absurd.”  Describing that attitude as fundamentalist, the United Left politician said the diocese appeared to be “prioritising religious beliefs over common sense and the natural history of the monument. It doesn’t seem either reasonable or acceptable to me.”

The Temple Mount is a plot of Jewish property, paid for by David (2 Samuel 24:18-25).  The more the Muslims engage in 'Temple Denial',* the more they will lose it all instead of sharing the site.


José Juan Jiménez Güeto, the spokesman for the Mosque-Cathedral said the name was constantly evolving. “We have leaflets that say mosque-cathedral or the other way around. And some that just say cathedral. We’re not denying its history – it was a mosque and now its a cathedral. Nobody is going to deny this.”  He dismissed the regional government concerns, calling it an “artificial debate”. Visitor numbers are up nearly 10% so this year to nearly 1.5 million, with 2014 poised to be a record breaker. “The important thing is that people come from around the world and feel welcomed in this place.”
