That Ganging-up Feeling?

IMRA had this:

Mufti of Jerusalem and the Whole Palestine Calls for saving Jerusalem and al-Aqsa Mosque

Occupied Jerusalem, (SANA - Syrian news agency)

Grand Mufti of the Occupied Jerusalem, Sheikh Mohamed Hussein, on Sunday appealed to Arab and Islamic leaders and peoples to save Jerusalem and al-Aqsa Mosque before it is too late.

The Mufti said that the declaration of a Jewish project, which aims at Judaizing Jerusalem and fragmenting the Blessed Aqsa Mosque, is in fact a kind of aggression because al-Aqsa Mosque is entirely for the Muslims, and people other than Muslims should not interfere in its affairs. The Mufti called on the Palestinian people to unite in order to defend Jerusalem and the sanctities and rights of Palestinians, pointing out that this current state of internal fragmentation is one of the major factors which helped occupation be arrogant in dealing with the Palestinian people,
demanding the world to act to stop the Israeli aggression against the Palestinian people and its sanctities, warning of the risks and repercussions of abusing the Blessed Mosque of Aqsa.

and there's this from Washington:

Jewish neighborhoods in east Jerusalem are included in the US demand that Israel halt "settlement" construction, including for natural growth, State Department spokesman Ian Kelly told The Jerusalem Post during a press briefing on Monday.

"We're talking about all settlement activity, yes, in the area across the line," he said, referring to neighborhoods in Jerusalem over the Green Line, or pre-1967 armistice line, in response to a question on where America's calls to halt construction in the settlements would be applied.

The Americans are such Toadies to their fairy tale ignorance of Israel's rights to all the Land.
They have departed from their love of the Torah and God has subsequently departed from blessing them :(
