CHUTZPAH: Muslims Trying to Ban Jews From Praying at the Western Wall

Palestine Arabs declare that the Western Wall (the holiest place in Judaism) is part of the al-Aqsa mosque and therefore is off limits to Jews.

The al-Aqsa mosque was deliberately built on the site of the Second Temple. Muslims will take over churches and synagogues as well as other religions temples etc to try to hide them. In fact, they tried to claim that Sarah's Tomb (Abraham's wife) was a mosque so that it could be destroyed.

The al-Aqsa mosque is not treated with any respect and every time the Muslims on the Mount have a temper tantrum they smash the place up. There is no link between Islam and Jerusalem other than it is the Jew's link with their holy site so it must be taken over.

Muslims will push to see how far they can go. In Israel. they have met their match. I wish several European countries would take note.

A number of Muslims in Jerusalem have plundered and dumped ancient Israel's artifacts from the Temple Mount. This is part of a concerted effort by Islamists to try to show that there is no link between Israel and Jews to Jerusalem and Israel.

Not only are there huge amounts of archaeologic evidence, a continuous presence by Jews in the land, there is also this little inconvenient thing called the Bible, which is replete with the Jewish homeland's history. This is why Islamists and Far Leftists try so hard to discredit the Bible. Absurdist revisionism is just another trick in Islam's bag.

Perhaps Israel should look at banning Muslims from the al-Aqsa mosque.

Whilst I accept that some religious people place great value on ancient buildings and artefacts I cannot understand why they would kill and die for objects as passionately as for people. Not far from where I live are huge old buidings built "to the glory of god" and at times I cannot help but wonder how many living beings died building them and defending them. I am reminded of the Bhuddist story of the wooden Bhuddas on a cold night.

“Since the dawn of Islam Muslims have always divided the world into two—themselves and others—and they continue to do so today. They are reasonable, peaceable, and upstanding believers while everyone else is a thoughtless, wicked, and heretical terrorist. They are the victims, and others are the killers.”
—Wafa Sultan, a Syrian Muslim and author of A God Who Hates

“We imbibed with our mothers’ milk hatred for the Jews and for anyone who supported their cause. We justified this hatred by devising a conspiracy theory, and we called anyone who disagreed with us a Zionist agent. This conspiracy theory helped keep Muslims inside the straitjacket in which Islam had imprisoned their minds. … Islam’s general attitude toward the Jews helped Muslims construct their conspiracy theory and use it as a weapon against anyone who tried to cast doubts upon the credibility and morality of Islamic teachings. With the aid of this weapon, they have been largely successful in attaining their objective.”
—Wafa Sultan, a Syrian Muslim and author of A God Who Hates

‘Jew must be one of the words Muslim children hear most frequently before the age of ten. It is also one of the hardest words they hear, as in their imagination it conjures up visions of killing, depravity, lies, and corruption. When two people quarrel, each calls the other a Jew. When one person wishes to express his disdain for another, he will call him a Jew.
When someone wants to describe someone else as ugly, he says he looks like a Jew. We hold the Jews “responsible” for our military failures, our economic backwardness, and our technological dependency. We believe that Jews control the world and that, in consequence, the whole world, dancing to their tune, wants to get rid of us.’
—Wafa Sultan, a Syrian Muslim and author of A God Who Hates

‘When I remember my childhood and reflect at length on our teachers’ and clergymen’s accusations against Jews in particular and Christians and other non-Muslims in general, I say to myself: If learned Muslims could replace the enormous quantities of hate contained in our schoolbooks, both religious and secular, with studies that focus on loving other people regardless of their religion, racial origin, or nationality, they would help to save the entire Muslim world from backwardness, hunger, poverty, and ignorance. That hatred could well destroy us before it destroys our “enemies.” For hatred is like acid in that it burns the container that holds it more than it damages the surface it is spilled upon.’

this was going on at the time of the british mandate, when the british sought to ban jewish people from praying at the western wall in order to appease their local muslim buddies. places become holy because of how people use them. and while israel has always respected, and indeed taken steps to conserve, significant sites of all religious groups, muslim groups routinely neglect and destroy such places.
