The problem with Muslim claims to al Quds: Mohammed died in the year 632, nearly 50 years before the first construction of the al-Aqsa Mosque was completed….

Islam’s tenuous connection to Jerusalem (Arutz Sheva Israel News) 

Despite 1,300 years of Muslim Arab rule, Jerusalem was never the capital of an Arab entity, nor was it ever mentioned in the Palestine Liberation Organization’s covenant until Israel regained control of East Jerusalem in the Six-Day War of 1967 …

“To enhance the prestige of the ‘substitute Mecca,’ the Jerusalem mosque was named al-Aqsa. It means ‘the furthest mosque’ in Arabic, but has far broader implications, since it is the same phrase used in a key passage of the Quran called ‘The Night Journey.’ In that passage, Mohammed arrives at ‘al-Aqsa’ on a winged steed accompanied by the Archangel Gabriel; from there they ascend into heaven for a divine meeting with Allah, after which Mohammed returns to Mecca.

“Naming the Jerusalem mosque al-Aqsa was an attempt to say the Dome of the Rock was the very spot from which Mohammed ascended to heaven, thus tying Jerusalem to divine revelation in Islamic belief. The problem however, is that Mohammed died in the year 632, nearly 50 years before the first construction of the al-Aqsa Mosque was completed.”

[Speaking at the Arab Press Club, the Grand Mufti stressed that Israeli violations of UN and other international resolutions and conventions are jeopardizing the objective of creating a Palestinian State with Jerusalem as its capital and were tantamount to gradually excluding Christian and Muslim influences from the area.]

[“Jerusalem is an Arab land,” he stressed, noting that Israel is “repeatedly violating” UN Resolutions by its policies. He further noted that the decision to annex East Jerusalem in 1967 was another violation by Israel of the Geneva Convention.]

Time to plan for war

Daily reports of weapons build-ups and military exercises in Iran and among Iran’s clients Syria, Hizbullah and Hamas expose the contours of their war plans.

Syria and Iran have armed Hizbullah with some 40,000 missiles and rockets, including hundreds of Scud missiles and guided surface-to-surface solid fuel M600 missiles with a 250 km range and. This week Hizbullah threatened to attack Israel with non-conventional weapons. Syria itself has a formidable chemical and biological arsenal as well as a massive artillery and missile force at its disposal.

As for Hamas, since Operation Cast Lead Iran’s Palestinian proxy Hamas has expanded its own missile arsenal. Today it reportedly has projectiles capable of reaching Tel Aviv and beyond.

Prominent Saudi Cleric Wants to Visit Jerusalem to Stake its Claim for Muslims…

(AP)- A Saudi cleric has announced on his television show that he will visit Jerusalem next week to bolster Muslim claims to the city. If Sheikh Mohammed al-Areefi goes ahead with his plan, it would be an unprecedented trip for a prominent Saudi.

An Israeli border guard looks over the city  which is holy for Christians & Jews, but not for Muslims, despite false claims and fabrications…..

Jerusalem is the third holiest site in Islam, (Actually, there is NOTHING holy in islam, and Jerusalem is not even mentioned in the Koran…) but most Muslim countries – including Saudi Arabia – observe a boycott of Israel and ban travel there.  Al-Areefi told his viewers Sunday on the religious satellite channel Iqra that the next episode of his show would be about Muslim claims to Jerusalem and Palestine.

Al-Areefi said he would visit the city next week, though he did not specify when.He said he was not afraid of any “treachery from the Jews,” as he had put his trust in God. Weasel Zippers

Islamic Jihad top dog warns that Israel wants to annex and “Judaize” Mecca and Medina

Projection Alert: here the head of Palestinian Islamic Jihad says that Israel has imperialist designs upon the whole Islamic world, when actually it is Islam, not Israel, that has a program for conquest and transformation of society in its own image.

Don’t believe me. Take it from Majid Khadduri, an Iraqi scholar of Islamic law of international renown. In his book War and Peace in the Law of Islam, which was published in 1955 and remains one of the most lucid and illuminating works on the subject, Khadduri says this about jihad:

The state which is regarded as the instrument for universalizing a certain religion must perforce be an ever expanding state. The Islamic state, whose principal function was to put God’s law into practice, sought to establish Islam as the dominant reigning ideology over the entire world….The jihad was therefore employed as an instrument for both the universalization of religion and the establishment of an imperial world state. (P. 51)

Nethanyahu Defies Obama Intifadah & Stands Up For Jerusalem

Gateway Pundit/YNet reported:

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu spoke at AIPAC last night before his trip to the White House this afternoon. The Israeli leader defied the Obama Intifadaand stood up for Israel’s right to Jerusalem:

The prime minister reiterated his stance on construction in Jerusalem, and told his audience of some 8,000 pro-Israel activists, “The connection between the Jewish people and the Land of Israel cannot be denied. The connection between the Jewish people and Jerusalem cannot be denied.

“The Jewish people were building Jerusalem 3,000 year ago and the Jewish people are building Jerusalem today. Jerusalem is not a settlement. It is our capital.”

Jerusalem: Arabs cause more trouble on the temple mount

In Jerusalem, clashes over Temple Mount, Al Aqsa Mosque

Jewish holidays are offensive to Muslims:

Access to the city’s holy sites are in particularly high demand this week because of the Jewish holiday of Sukkot, which Christians mark as the Feast of the Tabernacles. Police said they would be on high alert on Monday because it is the day in which thousands flock to the Old City to attend the “Priestly Blessing” at the Western Wall, which is situated just below the Al Aqsa compound. The proximity of the two sites has caused friction and violence on many occasions.

Update:

JERUSALEM – Israeli police shut down access to key Muslim holy sites in Jerusalem’s Old City on Sunday, spurring Palestinian protesters to throw rocks and bottles in protest – marking the second consecutive Sunday of disturbances near the city’s overlapping points of prayer for Jews and Muslims.

Clashes broke out in reaction to Israel’s closure of the entrances to the Dome of the Rock and the Al Aqsa Mosque, Islam’s third-holiest site. About 150 Palestinians who gathered for a prayer service near the city’s Lion’s Gate on Sunday morning hurled rocks and bottles at Israeli police, who fired tear gas in attempt to disperse the crowd. Palestinian officials said nine people were treated for light injuries, primarily tear gas inhalation. Israel said two of its policeman were sent to hospitals after being injured by rocks and bottles. More from the Christian Science Monitor

Atlas Shrugs: A Plea for Israel:

More Proof of Jewish ownership of Israel — as the world collectively yawns

Day after day, proof after proof after proof. No Islamic history in Jerusalem. Time to remove the Dome; it is occupying Jewish land. And while we are at it, perhaps the Organization of the Islamic Conference can, as Bat Ye’or suggested, express its regrets for over a millennium of jihad wars, land expropriations, enslavements, and humiliations of the conquered non-Muslim populations on three continents.   That could jump start the healing process. In the meantime, perhaps the jihad could remove its teeth from Israel’s neck.

250 Rabbis Sign Letter to Obama: Hands off Jerusalem

What are our ‘peace-partners’ saying?

“Peace for us means the destruction of Israel.  We are preparing for all-out war, a war which will last for generations.” – Yasser Arafat, former leader of the PLO.

“We plan to eliminate the state of Israel and establish a purely Palestinian state.  We will make life unbearable for Jews by psychological warfare and population explosion.  We Palestinians will take over everything, including all of Jerusalem.” – Yasser Arafat, former leader of the PLO.

“If the Jews all gather is Israel, it will save us the trouble of going after them worldwide” – Sheikh Hassan Nasrallah, Secretary General of Hezbollah.    

(Israelnationalnews.com) Heads of the Pikuach Nefesh rabbinical committee have begun collecting the signatures of rabbis in Israel on a letter to United States President Barack Obama. The letter demands that Obama cease talking about ending Jewish construction in Jerusalem and stop pressuring Israel in that direction.

In a reference to the upcoming “nine days” which culminate in Tisha B’Av, the rabbis tell Obama that “during these days, in which the Jewish people mourns the destruction of Jerusalem and marks the disgraceful memory of its destroyers, we are certain that you, Mr. Barack Obama, do not want to enter that disreputable list of those who raise their hand to strike Jerusalem and those who live in it.”


We are certain that you, Mr. Barack Obama, do not want to enter that disreputable list of those who raise their hand to strike Jerusalem and those who live in it.

The rabbis note that during his visit to the Middle East, Obama showed “impressive erudition” in the Koran. “As one who is familiar with the Koran, you surely know that the city of Jerusalem is not even mentioned in it once,” they said.

Erasing Jews from Jerusalem

By: Itamar Marcus and Noaz Cohen/FrontPageMagazine.com 

    “Jerusalem is the religious, political and spiritual capital of Palestine – the Jews have no right to it.”

    [Dr. Tayseer Al-Tamimi, PA Chief Justice of religious court]

jewishoccupationofarabland

The erasure and denial of 3,000 years of Jewish history in Jerusalem is integral to Palestinian ideology. Accordingly, Israel and Jews are said to have “no rights” to Jerusalem, and any contemporary manifestation of Jewish life and development there is labeled by the Palestinian Authority as “Judaization.” Jerusalem is presented as an exclusively Muslim and Christian city, with no regard for historical reality. Beyond this historical revisionism, the PA disseminates the libel that Israel is acting to expel Arabs from Jerusalem in order to further “Judaize” the city. Fabrications include PA accusations of Israeli destruction of Islamic and Christian sites, and repeated use of PA hate language, including references to a “criminal cultural massacre”  to chase Arab inhabitants away. The Jerusalem libel is designed to evoke religious hatred by portraying Israel and the Jews as the enemy of, and threat to, Arabs and Islam.

Israeli Vice Premier: Jerusalem Will Not Be Divided!

* Of course not. But not giving it all away makes Netanyahu  and Likud a “hardline government” for the wankers of the “free press”…. why don’t they check with the Arabs if they have something to give away…?

Jerusalem – The new Israeli government of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu will not give up East Jerusalem to the Palestinians, Netanyahu’s deputy reiterated Wedneday.

‘Jerusalem is protected under the policy of the current government and previous governments,’ Vice Prime Minister Silvan Shalom, of Netanyahu’s ruling, hardline Likud party, told the Knesset, Israel’s parliament.

‘Jerusalem will not be divided,‘ he told a special session commemorating the anniversary according to the Hebrew calender of what Israel celebrates as the ‘re-unification’ of Jerusalem.

Pal's claim they were promised Jerusalem

obama-nazi2 Yep. Did he promise to put gas in your car and pay your mortgage too?

US President Barack Obama’s new peace plan for the Middle East continues to unravel, ahead of it official presentation in Cairo, on June 4.

Official Palestinian Authority sources told Ynet Wednesday that following Jordan’s King Abdullah’s visit to Washington, as well as other visits to the US capital, they were given the impression that any new American peace plan would call for establishing a Palestinian state with Jerusalem as its capital.

Pope Walks Out as Sheikh Tamimi Blasts Israel at "Interfaith Meeting…"

Matthew Wagner , THE JERUSALEM POST

A leading Palestinian cleric commandeered an evening devoted to interfaith dialogue with Pope Benedict XVI on Monday to rant against Israel for “killing Gaza’s children,” “bulldozing Palestinian homes” and “destroying mosques.”

  • Debbie Schlussel ain’t buying any:   pardon me if I don’t buy the Vatican’s claim they didn’t know Tamimi would be part of the agenda. And pardon me if I think it’s nauseating that the Pope chose to sit by as this occurred, without walking out on this while it was occurring. And pardon me if I think it’s disgusting he shook the guy’s hand on the way out–the hand of a well-known anti-Semite and pan-terrorist inciter.
  • What good does it do that he walked out after? Big deal. More>>

visitofarungandhi03In an impromptu speech, delivered in Arabic at the Notre Dame Pontifical Institute in Jerusalem, Sheikh Tayseer Tamimi, chief Islamic judge in the Palestinian Authority, launched a 10-minute tirade against the State of Israel for confiscating Palestinians’ land and carrying out war crimes against the residents of Gaza.

He also called for the immediate return of all Palestinian refugees, and called on Christians and Muslims to unite against Israel.

Tamimi invoked the name of Saladin, the Muslim sultan who recaptured Jerusalem from the Crusaders in 1187. Tamimi said that unlike Israel, Saladin upheld the religious freedoms of all faiths.

* These guys lie even when they pray…

* Incidentally, this is the same Tamimi who once said: “The Jews are destined to be persecuted, humiliated, and tortured forever, and it is a Muslim duty to see to it that they reap their due. No petty arguments must be allowed to divide us. Where Hitler failed, we must succeed.”

So much for “interreligious dialogue” …
