The courageous Iranian freedom fighterÂ Amil Imani writes about the Muslim scapegoating of Jews, more from JW….
They complain about the intolerable fact that the Hurva dome appears to be higher than the Dome of the Rock and is meant to hide the Temple Mount and make the Hurva appear more prominent from many angles. Â Â Â I love Palestinian Arab “scholarship.”
Incidentally, the best pictures of the Hurva come fromÂ Muslim sites complaining about it
I’ve already decided not to donate a single extra dollar to World Vision when my current sponsorships run out, But now add to its global warming extremism this (naively unwitting) support of another kind of fanaticism:
Scandal ridden CHARITY group World Vision Australia has been embarrassed by a plan by Palestinian authorities to name a sporting complex containing an Australian-funded soccer field in the West Bank Judea & Samaria after a former militant PLO leader. Read it all
“Expansion of Israeli settlements…shows the Zionist plans to accelerate Judaization of east Jerusalem”
“Iran says Muslims must act over Jerusalem,” fromÂ Reuters, via Jihad Watch:
“Expansion of Israeli settlements, destruction of Islamic and Christian sites and wide-scale construction of new synagogues … show the Zionist plans to accelerate Judaization of east Jerusalem and unfortunately it is approved by American officials,” Iran’s Foreign Minister Manouchehr Mottaki said in comments reported on Iranian state radio.
What “destruction of Islamic and Christian sites” is he talking about? There have been none. Christian sites, however, and Jewish sites, have suffered terribly all over the Muslim-dominated Middle East, not least to synagoges in the Old City of Jerusalem between 1948 and 1967, all but one of which were dynamited, while tombstones from the ancient Jewish cemetery on the Mount of Olives were pulled up and then used to line the floors of Jordanian army latrines.
And what happened to the Church of the Holy Sepulchre in the early 11th century, and to many other Christian sites, continues to this day, where those sites have not simply been appropriated, as the Church of St. John the Baptist in Damascus became part — the most impressive part — of what is now the most famous Umayyad Mosque.
Even the mere discovery of formerly-unkown churches can lead archeologists into hot water. Think of what the Jordanians did to Kathleen Kenyon, who had found too many Christian sites to their liking, in the 1960s — and what happened to those Italian archeologists who found Ebla, in present-day Syria, and a bit too much connected to Jews and Judaism for the liking of the likes of the Syrian government?
I have no idea if the Saudis have been destroying the signs of a Jewish presence in northeastern Arabia, but I suspect that they have been and, for good measure, no doubt wiping out any signs of Christianity too, throughout the Arabian peninsula.
One often wonders what happened to the Nestorians, who practically covered the globe from the Middle East all the way to China, and who expunged what could be — and it was a lot — of the memory of these Eastern Christians. A great deal of history has been physically effaced, and if Muslims had their way in the Holy Land, does anyone doubt what,given their new aggression and self-confidence, the result of OPEC trillions and Muslim millions now living in the West, what they would do to non-Muslim sites? Do you have to guess?
