The current spilling of Jewish blood by pious Muslims is, of course, incited by the PA, Hamas, Hizbullah, Islamic State, etc., through the false claim that Israel is set on changing the status quo on the Temple Mount. Of course, Israel is doing no such thing.
But think about it for a moment. Muslims are murdering Jews because they believe that Israel is seeking to legitimize the right of Jews to pray on the Temple Mount.
This murderous intolerance should outrage every decent American — Democrat and Republican.
The idea that Jews are forbidden to move their lips in prayer at the site of the two holy Jewish Temples is religious intolerance that should never be tolerated.
But Israel, in order to appease a people who can never be appeased, are working furiously to prop up Muslim religious bigotry.
Said PA leader Abu Mazen on October 14, 2015:
“Al Aksa is ours and so is the Church of the Holy Sepulchre. They have no right to desecrate them with their filthy feet.”
Can you imagine if Benjamin Netanyahu made the same statement about Muslims? The mainstream press, including the Israeli press, would be in an uproar.
Of course, Muslims deny that the first and second Temples ever existed on the Temple Mount. Thus, they claim that Jews are interlopers. The current mufti of Jerusalem, Sheikh Muhammad Ahmad Hussein, just stated that the Al-Aqsa Mosque has stood on this spot “since the creation of the world.”
The grand mufti of Jerusalem, the Muslim cleric in charge of the Al-Aqsa Mosque, said Sunday that there has never been a Jewish temple atop the Temple Mount, and that the site has been home to a mosque “since the creation of the world.
This primitive ignorance would be quaint if murder and genocide were not its beating heart.
Of course, the Al-Aqsa Mosque was deliberately built on the ruins of the Jewish Temples a millennium after the building of Solomon’s Temple. It is a common Islamic custom to build mosques on the sites of other people’s holy places.
Let us never forget that Islam is, in contrast to Judaism, an infant religion.
But historical facts are stubborn things, and an incredible archeological artifact was recently discovered that proved what all reasonably educated already know: that the First and Second Temples stood on the Temple Mount until they were destroyed respectively by the Babylonians and then the Romans.
It is the Muslims who are interlopers; it is Muslims who are illegal imperialists and occupiers; it is Islam that seeks to deny the legitimacy of all other religions. And because so many pious Muslims are violent, murderous thugs, the Jewish state, Europe and America, work like frenzied quislings to maintain a status quo that legitimizes religious intolerance and the shedding of Jewish blood.
