Ratchetting Up Temple Mount Denial

Three of the latest outlandish, silly, ridiculous but dangerous mindset reporting that not only simply twists and falsifies facts but also one must be cognizant of the intention.

These items and statements are examples of incendiary incitement seeking to foment anti-Jewish violence.  These are not part of some political confrontation of a philosophical ethical nature with theological ramifications for the cloister, or the kloyze.

Islamic-Christian Commission warns of fake Jewish history imposed on the Temple Mount

The Islamic-Christian Commission in Support of Jerusalem and the Holy Sites has warned that the Israeli occupation authorities are working to impose a false Jewish history in the occupied city, especially on the area known to Jews as the Temple Mount. The Commission called for a firm refutation of the fake history and warned of new Judaisation projects in the Umayyad palaces, the Magharba Gate and Silwan.

The Commission pointed out that the occupation authorities not only dig tunnels in the archaeological areas to search for relics of their temple in Jerusalem, but are also working to impose a Jewish history on these areas to prove Israel’s rights in the Holy Land. Israeli excavations and claims about the existence of the remains of an entire Jewish city are plans brought into reality drafted by Jewish extremists. “The excavations under the Umayyad palaces to the south of Al-Aqsa Mosque now connect the bottom of Jerusalem’s walls, behind the southern wall of the blessed mosque,” noted the Commission in a press statement.

It added that the Israeli occupation, headed by the Jerusalem municipality and the Antiquities Authority, is preparing a large project targeting the Noble Sanctuary of Al-Aqsa. According to the plans, Israel will change the features of Al-Aqsa Mosque and impose a Jewish character on it, “in a preliminary step to achieve the goal of Judaising Al-Aqsa Mosque and establishing a Temple”.

According to the Islamic-Christian group, the two regions of the Umayyad palaces and Silwan will remain an integral part of Occupied East Jerusalem. The Commission called on Israel “as an occupying power” to adhere to its obligations under international humanitarian law, which imply that it must preserve archaeological sites and refrain from making any changes to Jerusalem’s historic landmarks.


Grand Imam of Al-Azhar calls on Islamic summit in Makkah for cancelling the Arab initiative
The Grand Imam of Al-Azhar mosque Sheikh Ahmed Al-Tayeb called on the Islamic summit held in Makkah to cancel the Arab initiative in response to the Israeli recent violations in Jerusalem and al-Aqsa mosque.

The Sheikh warned in a statement on Tuesday of the seriousness of the Israeli violations that aim to judaize not only the city of Jerusalem but also al-Aqsa mosque and to falsify history.

He said that the recent Israeli draft bill to divide the Aqsa mosque between Muslims and Jews was similar to the arrangements at the Ibrahimi mosque in Al-Khalil.

US Report Supports Right Wing Project to Allow Jews to Pray in Al-Aqsa Mosque

The United States Commission on International Religious Freedom has issued a report that criticizes Israel's prevention of non-Muslims, "especially Jews", from praying in al-Aqsa mosque, arguing that it prevents religious freedom...
The report, which was published in Washington, claims that Israel gives security reasons for not allowing non-Muslims to pray at Al-Aqsa mosque while Israeli policy is also to promote religious freedom. This is despite the Israeli Supreme Court's decision to allow non-Muslims to pray at Al-Aqsa, and Israeli security forces accompanying Jews who wish to pray in the mosque.
The report also criticized Israel's prevention of Christian Missionary Groups from entering the country. They called on the Israeli Interior Ministry to review this decision, saying that, "When Israel doubts that these groups are Christian Missionary Groups, they are prevented from entering."
