Obama - Coming to the Temple Mount?

If true (it isn't listed here), we already have a confrontation set up:-

Sheikh Ikrima Sabri said that the Palestinians would welcome any visitor to the Aqsa Mosque, provided that he should abide by the regulations set by the Islamic Waqf authority.
Sheikh Sabri explained that if Obama wanted to visit the Aqsa Mosque, he should enter through Al-Asbat gate and not Al-Maghariba gate under Israel’s control in order to show his respect for the Islamic sovereignty over the Mosque.
He added that Obama should not be accompanied by an Israeli official during his visit to the holy Mosque because it belongs to Muslims and it is their holy site alone.

That second gate mentioned is the one whose keys are in the hands of Israel security personnel.  All the other gates had their keys returned to the Waqf, in a symbolic gesture, two weeks after the Six Days war. 

If this really is on the agenda, it will be interesting - and challenging.


Why challenging?

Read on:

"Aqsa Foundation" announced in a statement today Saturday, 23/2/2013 AD that organizations and Israeli settlers have begun their preparations for a campaign of raids and desecration of the sanctity of al-Aqsa mosque in coming days and weeks, on the occasion of the so-called "Jewish holidays", where he published the Israeli media with related settlers' invitation to break en masse into the Al-Aqsa Mosque on Monday in the early morning hours, including settlers from "Kiryat Arba", on the occasion of what they called "Susanna [Shushan] Purim" in Hebrew, a prelude to what is known as "Purim," escalate the incursions of the Al-Aqsa Mosque, as a step in accelerating the building of the alleged temple.
This comes at a time when it was observed growing and repeated Israeli army incursions groups some in, and uniforms, which coincided in the last week with raids by groups of Israeli intelligence agents.

This and warned "the Al-Aqsa Foundation" of all these recent developments regarding the Al-Aqsa mosque, including the storming of Al-Aqsa and the attack on worshipers yesterday after Friday prayers.
The organization called the people of Jerusalem and inside each can reach a maximum, to communicate more and intensify decamp to the al-Aqsa mosque all the time and when, especially in the times of the early morning, which deliberately occupation and tentacles storm and the desecration of Al Aqsa Mosque.
