Ahmad Tibi Misrepresentation

I have read that Ahmad Tibib, MK, has said this at a conference entitled "Jerusalem: Legalising the Occupation" held in London last week:

"Christians are praying in their church, Muslims in their mosque and Jews in synagogue.  But not inside the Mosque – the Al Aqsa Mosque! This is the most provocative thing for Palestinians and Muslims and even for Christians in Jerusalem! ….. Israel shot Palestinians in the Al Aqsa Mosque”

As Jonathan H. correctly points out, those Arabs shot included those who murdered two Israeli policemen, rioters who stoned police and fired roman candles at them as well as tossing stones over the wall into the Western Wall Plaza below endangering lives.

But more importantly, he is pushing a trick.

Is the whole compound a mosque?  Even those buildings and open-air gardens and orchards?

And let us not forget the other trick of the 2013 PA-Jordan Agreement, artificially extending the area of the holy site outside its boundaries:

C. Recalling the unique religious importance, to all Muslims, of Al Masjid Al-Aqsa with its 144 dunums, which include the Qibli Mosque of Al Aqsa, the Mosque of the Dome of the Rock and all its mosques, buildings, walls, courtyards, attached areas over and beneath the ground and the Waqf properties tied-up to Al Masjid Al Aqsa, to its environs or to its pilgrims (hereinafter referred to as "Al Haram Al Sharif");

Watch out for tricks.
