Now Jordan Is Bullying

Previously, I noted Jordan's butting in.

Now, I sense a bit of bullying:

The Minister of Awqaf and Islamic Affairs, Dr. Mohamed Noah, warned of the consequences from the information reported in the Israeli media that the President [???] and members of the Knesset Interior Committee will go to the Al-Aqsa Mosque to discuss the possibility of the performance of the Talmudic Jews to their prayers in it.

...these statements provoked resentment of Muslims all over the world, which could lead to spark a religious war in the region.  He stressed that these statements are serious, that they will lead to negative feedback as well as a strong, affirming the sanctity of Al Aqsa Mosque in all precincts and mosques and everything in it, above and below ground, and should be rejected. 

He also emphasized that now the Temple Mount is

located under the guardianship of the state of Jordan confirmed by the Jordanian-Palestinian agreement recently signed to protect and defend the Aqsa.

On the other hand

Prime Minister Abdullah Ensour on Monday said that the recently signed Jerusalem agreement has no hidden agendas or any unannounced intentions, as claimed by some recent news reports.

He was referring to columnists who saw that the agreement, which renews the Hashemites’ role as custodians of the holy places in Jerusalem, was a prelude to a confederation between Jordan and Palestine.
The agreement, signed by His Majesty King Abdullah and Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas last month, gives Jordan the legal means to defend Al Aqsa Mosque in Jerusalem.
Inaugurating the Cultural Quds [Jerusalem] Week, organised by the Middle East University, Ensour underlined that the agreement stipulates the full sovereignty of the Palestinian state over East Jerusalem and its holy sites, and warning against any parties attempting to undermine the strong Jordanian-Palestinian relations.

So, what's afoot?

This irrationality:-

The chairman of the Islamic Awkaf Council in occupied Jerusalem, Sheikh Abduladheem Salhab, has revealed that Jewish fanatics had built 70 religious schools, synagogues, and museums in the vicinity of the Aqsa mosque.

He called for amalgamating efforts to foil the “Zionist schemes” that aim to intrude on on the holy Aqsa mosque.

Salhab, in an interview with the PIC, called for intensifying presence of worshipers inside the holy site in order to protect it.

The council chairman charged that the new “rightist government” of Benjamin Netanyahu was targeting the Aqsa mosque and trying to impose a new de facto situation on it.

Salhab emphasized that Muslims all around the world refuse any attempt to divide the Aqsa mosque (between Muslims and Jews).
