Arab Ritualistic Anti-Semitism and Defense Minister Lieberman

Defense Minister Avigdor Lieberman went to the Western Wall to proffer thanks and, perhaps, ask for guidance.

Here is how an Arab news agency reported the event:

In a provocative move, the War minister in the Israeli government, Avigdor Lieberman, on Tuesday morning, broke into the courtyards of Al-Aqsa mosque amid tight security of the occupying forces, and performed Talmudic rituals in what is called the Wailing Wall (the western wall of Al-Aqsa Mosque).

They even had an accompanying photograph to illustrate his provocative ritualistc act:

However, any simple Google search will reveal that that picture is from November 2013, following his acquittal on charges of fraud and breach of trust in a unanimous ruling by three judges having been accused of promoting a former diplomat who had passed him information about a criminal investigation into Lieberman's business dealings by the authorities in Belarus.

Here is a picture from two days ago:

I can only presume that in order to ramp up the anti-Semitic tone of their reporting, the editors looked for a more "provocative" look, one with him in a tallit, the ritual prayer shawl.

They really are sick, aren't they?  More Pallywood.

Not only is he not in any Al-Aqsa "courtyard", not only is the Western Wall the retaining wall of the Herodian expansion of the Temple Mount precincts but the tallit is not "Talmudic" not is the "ritual" he is performing "Talmudic" but quite Biblical.

But if they mentioned the Bible, they might find out that the city is not "Al-Quds" but Jerusalem and the country is not "Filastin" but Eretz-Yisrael.

As for Lieberman being a "War Minister" rather than a Defense Minister, it depends, I surmise, on what the Arabs want.
