The Temple Mount, desecrated by the abominable Mosque…

( Likud party chairman and Knesset Opposition leader MK Binyamin Netanyahu warned at the Jerusalem Conference Wednesday that the Obama administration and leftist Israeli politicians will try to internationalize holy sites in Jerusalem — and he vowed to fight the move.

Netanyahu told the audience, “Some politicians are trying to blur the importance of the Temple Mount to the Jewish People by referring to it as the ‘Holy Basin.’ We, as Jews, know who built the Temple Mount.”

The term “Holy Basin” refers to the area of the Temple Mount, the Mount of Olives, Mount Zion and a variety of Christian holy sites which the administration of former U.S. President Bill Clinton recommended be administered under a “special regime.”

This raises the issue of who would administer the Temple Mount, since at present the Wakf Islamic Authority controls the site, albeit under Israeli sovereignty. Moreover, the Arab neighborhoods surrounding the Temple Mount, home to tens of thousands of Israeli Arab residents, are also a part of greater Jerusalem, and thereby fall into the same discussion.

Former prime minister Netanyahu, who will likely return to his old leadership role after the February 10 Israel elections, repeatedly emphasized the Likud’s loyalty to the concept of a united Jerusalem.

“We have demonstrated in the past, and will continue to demonstrate our commitment to a complete, undivided Jerusalem,” Netanyahu assured a packed hall at the Jerusalem Regency Hotel, where he opened the final day of the Jerusalem Conference.

“What would have happened had we not built all those neighborhoods” around the central part of the capital after the Six-Day War, Netanyahu asked. “Jerusalem would have been choked.” Moreover, he said, transferring sovereignty over those areas to the Palestinian Authority is not an option.

“Everyone knows what will happen if we were to leave those areas and divide Jerusalem. Someone will enter – and that someone will be Hamas.”

Dividing the capital, or resurrecting the specter of internationalizing the “Holy Basin”, this time at the recommendation of the U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, would cause more problems even for the international community that it would solve, he added.

The three major religions of the world exist in peace, have access to all their sites, only because Jerusalem is united and under Israeli rule, Netanyahu contended, adding in deliberately Hebrew-accented English, “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it!”

After Netanyahu’s Jerusalem Conference speech, he convened with his fellow party member Dr. Yuval Steinitz and Ichud Leumi (National Union) party Chairman Yaakov Katz. Katz asked the Likud chairman what his plans are for a coalition after the Israel elections. Netanyahu responded, “We will establish a broad coalition based on all the Zionist parties – blue and orange.” [Orange is the color associated with the Ichud Leumi (National Union) party and its supporters].

The meeting between Netanyahu and Katz was held in a positive atmosphere with reciprocal intentions for developing a close working relationship. Katz later told reporters, “Only a strong Ichud Leumi (National Union) in the Knesset will insure that all the good intentions of the government will be implemented.”

  1. * The Temple Mount, desecrated by the abominable Mosque…

    … I doubt the mosque will be there for much longer, as God’s prophetic word comes
    to pass. The Temple will be built, but it will be occupied by a counterfeit messiah, the
    Beast whose number is 666.

  2. From today’s Independent in the UK – “Plenty of uppity Oxbridge undergraduates like to boast about their academic records but none can match that of one particular new student.

    Ali Moeen Nawazish, a charming 18-year-old from Pakistan with delicately accented English, is in the first year of his degree in computer science at the University of Cambridge.

    To get there he undertook 23 A-levels in a single year, shattering the previous world record of a mere 13. ”

    Did you get that “18 year old from Pakistan…” with 23 A’levels…? That’s more than your entire supporters have put together. It’s probably more than the whole of Australia put together. And how it fits into your crazed racist picture of the world. I look forward to seeing this flagged up on your s(h)ite.

  3. Steve Brown you are such a pathetic dhimmi tool. “Prosecute” Israel for FINALLY responding to Ham-ass’s thousands of rockets raining down on Israeli civilians? Dumb asses like you are so ignorant you talk like you cannot see the Forrest because of all the trees in the way. Israel should have turn Ham-ass into a foote note in history books. No other nation on the planet would tolerate terrorists lobbing thousands of rockets into their nation & their response would be most likely far worse than Israel’s was.

    Pathetic idiot. Move to Mecca.

    Sounds like Ali Moeen Nawazish is a smart girl DESPITE Islam. What part of Islam helped her achieve what she has done so far? If anything she will be end up being nothing more than a propaganda piece for Islamic media interests in the west…while if she returns to Pakistan she will take up her less then human status [because the Qu’ran & Hadith states she has has the brains of a man].

    “The Prophet said, ‘Isn’t the witness of a woman equal to half of that of a man?’ The women said, ‘Yes.’ He said, ‘This is because of the deficiency of a woman’s mind.”

    “Allah said, ‘It is My obligation to make Eve bleed once every month as she made this tree bleed. I must also make Eve stupid, although I created her intelligent.’ Because Allah afflicted Eve, all of the women of this world menstruate and are stupid.”
    Tabari I:280

    “‘O womenfolk, you should ask for forgiveness for I saw you in bulk amongst the dwellers of Hell.’ A wise lady said: Why is it, Allah’s Apostle, that women comprise the bulk of the inhabitants of Hell? The Prophet observed: ‘You curse too much and are ungrateful to your spouses. You lack common sense, fail in religion and rob the wisdom of the wise.’ Upon this the woman remarked: What is wrong with our common sense? The Prophet replied, ‘Your lack of common sense can be determined from the fact that the evidence of two women is equal to one man. That is a proof.'”

    Amazing girl! She overcame in spite of the disease of Islam.

  4. Revparadigm – It’s obvious from your little heap of stunted semi-literate sentences that you’re not going to have ever troubled an exam marker in your grim little life.

    Israel could have responded in any number of alternative ways other than that in which it did. It chose to murder civilians and kill women and children in cold blood. Those were criminal actions. You support Israel because you are thrilled it is killing muslims. You quote, meaninglessly, from the koran yet the conflict is a strategic and political one.

    Thus you are hopelessly equipped to understand the nature of the conflict. You are barely literate, you are a racist and you think religion explains the murder that has just taken place. Plus, you can’t seem to tell the difference between male and female. You’re a disgrace mate. Go suck on a beer and put the telly on, the world left the likes of you behind a long time ago.

  5. I was thinking of a girl with “ali” and didn’t read “he” so I’m “racist”…rofl.

    “You are barely literate, you are a racist and you think religion explains the murder that has just taken place.”

    HAHAHA!!! I’m going to use this as a quote just show liberalism turns people’s brains into mush. What race is Islam again? Arab, Caucasian, Asian, African, Oriental Muslims…which psychical appearance did I mention in my supposed racism? Thanks for returning the favor in ignorance dumbass.

    Btw my “meaningless quotes” about women are perfectly accurate from the Qu’ran, which leaves you defending the most oppressive religion concerning women this planet has ever known.


    Israel is “Cold blooded killers”…

    How many times does Israel attack Hamas & Hezbollah without provocation?


    How many thousands of missiles does these Jihadists have to send down on Israeli civilians before its recognized as a attack? 50 – 100,000? I guess 5,000 & 20,000 isn’t enough, before Israel has a right to protect itself? The “nature” of conflict is simply this…Muslims hates Jews and hate the fact they are living on the land of their heritage and the Arab Muslims cannot defeat them. I guess Ham-ass using women & children as human shields doesn’t register as war crimes between your ears…only because it has to be justified because Israel has such overwhelming firepower compared to them?

    I guess Muslims can do no wrong in attacking Israel and Israel has no right to defend itself according to you libtards.

    If was just about land, why do Muslims of all nationalities all over the planet side with Ham-ass & Hezbollah? Or are you that completely blind to the worldwide demonstrations of Muslims chanting “Hitler was right” or “Jews back to the ovens”?

    I don’t drink beer and watch T.V. I’ll just pour myself some ice tea and laugh my ass off reading your idiotic blog.

  6. Ok Mr Brown,

    I am in awe of your wisdom. Please enlighten me, what were the alternatives for Israel? However, lets eliminate any options that Israel has already tried repeatedly even just from 2005 let alone the farce from concocted by the all loving husband of the current idiot Hillary in 1993.

  7. Says something about Mr.Brown that he spends his time drinking beer and watch ‘the telly’. Get off your arse mate and get an education and then start talking some sense instead of obviously watching rubbish and no doubt reading rubbish – guess you can read.
