Despite bombarding Jews on their high holidays with rocks and Â incitement from Islamic clerics to riot, Â Israel allows muslims to Â defile the temple mount and to blast the hateful Friday kuthbas over powerful loudspeakers. Â The surrounding Arab countries, Jordan, Egypt and Syria never stop to incite the Arabs to terrorize the Jews and threaten a new intifadah. Even Jordan’s plucky little king is doing his very best to display his Jew-hating obsession.
Jerusalem: Muslims Stone Jews on Jewish Holiday
Dare to compare: name one Muslim country where Christians or Jews would get away with something like that!
Regardless, the jihad must continue:
The head of the International Union for Muslim Scholars, Yusuf Al Qaradawi, is urging Egyptians to turn this Friday into a nationwide day of anger against the “Israeli practices at the Aqsa mosque in Jerusalem.”
The outspoken cleric is famous for once calling Jews a profligate, cunning and arrogant band of people. He has long been in support of Palestinian suicide bombers and previously said that the Holocaust was God’s punishment to Jews for their corruption.
Qaradawi wasn’t the only cleric to criticize Arab regimes for their “passiveness” against “Israeli violations.” A number of religious scholars said that the Arab and Muslim world should rush to defend the sacred Aqsa from repeated “Zionist assaults.”

“To divide once again the sovereignty of Jerusalem would mean to transform it into a Middle Eastern Belfast, a volcano that would spark conflict in the entire region,” Rivlin told La Stampa.
No can do:
“The entire Muslim population [of Jerusalem] was able to observe Ramadan in peace last month,” said Barkat. “Now the Muslims must allow the Jews to celebrate their own holidays,” he concluded, echoing sentiments communicated on Monday by Jerusalem police chief Cmdr. Aharon Franco. (Not. Muslims are religiously obliged to attack other religions when they celebrate their high holidays...)
“Israel is lighting matches in hopes of igniting a big fire,“ said Erekat during a press conference. He claimed Israel was attempting “to strengthen its hold on occupied Jerusalem” rather than keep the peace. Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas, meanwhile, called on the Arab world to increase efforts and raise funds to ensure continued Arab presence in Jerusalem, in light of Israeli efforts to “Judaize” the city.”

Islamic Jihad’s website Saraya.ps has anÂ article on the ninth anniversary of the beginning of the second Intifada. The exact words the article uses are “the ninth anniversary of theÂ glorious Al-Aqsa Intifada in Palestine.”
Think about this for a minute. The intifada resulted in the deaths of over 5000 Palestinian Arabs. As a direct result of the uprising, Israel built a wall to protect her citizens and that made the lives of Palestinian Arabs more difficult. The political goals of moderate Palestinian Arabs were set back by years. Yasir Arafat turned from a respected international figure into a joke, hiding terrorists in his compound. The Palestinian Arabs themselves suffered a huge split between Gaza and the West Bank and between Hamas and Fatah. More from the Elder of Zion
By the standards of any normal observer, the second intifada was anything but “glorious.”
Religious Freedom in Israel: A Fundamental Guarantee
Starting on Ramadan, Israel Further Eases Life in the West Bank
Violence erupted in Jerusalem in recent days as Arab rioters stoned both tourists and policemen at the Temple Mount (which Muslims call the Haram ash-Sharif, or Noble Sanctuary) and in eastern neighborhoods of the city. The first incident occurred on Sept. 27, the eve of the Jewish holiday of Yom Kippur, and clashes broke out again this week with the start of the Jewish festival of Sukkot. 
Some notable Israeli-Arab and Palestinian leaders have supported the rioters. Sheik Ra’ad Salah, leader of the Islamic Movement in Israel, said, “We will liberate al-Aksa with blood and fire,” and Palestinian Authority Prime Minister Salaam Fayad said, “We call on the Palestinian public to confront Israel and its plans.”
