Palestinian Authority Chairman Mahmoud Abbas has turned around Palestinian Authority efforts to erase evidence of Jewish roots of the Temple Mount and accuses Israel of trying to remove Jerusalems Arab and Christian character,
He spoke on Sunday at the Arab League-sponsored Jerusalem International Conference in Doha, Qatar, whose ruler kicked off the conference by saying that Israels Jewish development in and around the capital threatens the capitals Arab identity.
Sheik Hamad bin Khalifa Al Thani called on the United Nations to investigate what he called Israeli settlements, and he pledged support for unity between Abbass Fatah party and the rival Hamas terrorist organization.
The U.N. Special Coordinator for the Middle East Peace Process, Robert Serry, is scheduled to address the three-day conference.
Abbas charged Israel with using the ugliest and most dangerous means to implement plans to erase and remove the Arab-Islamic and the Christian character of east Jerusalem, according to the Bethlehem-based Ma'an news agency.
He charged that Israels alleged apartheid wall has isolated Arabs from Jerusalem and said that Arabs find it almost impossible to enter because of the lack of permits. In fact, thousands of Arabs from Judea and Samaria enter Jerusalem every day.
Abba'ss call for an Arab march on Jerusalem follows a campaign the past several years of trying to remove artifacts that would show the origins of the Temple Mount in Jerusalem, as recorded in the Bible.

Of course there is evidence that Jews were "present" on the Temple Mount 2,000 years ago. Arab leadership may fool their followers into saying otherwise, But it does not change the facts. The U.N. may support the Fatah and Hamas terrorist, but it does not change the fact that although some men are deceived, God is not.
God Bless Israel and Jerusalem. God Bless the U.S.
Reading this is sort of funny in light of a joint pilgrimage members of my synagogue recently completed with members of a nearby Catholic Church. (Videos here) Obviously this trip highlighted Christian sights and emphasized the Jewish milieu in which Jesus lived. Our Rabbi spoke about this yesterday and mentioned a welcoming sign from "Islamic friends" they encountered as they visited the Church of the Annunciation in Nazareth. I don't know for sure, but it might have been this one:
I find it amusing that the Islamic Swine are always telling us that the beauty of the Quran can only be understood in its original Arabic, but for some reason they apparently felt the need to to translate this beauty here.
The sign appears across the street from the Church of the Annunciation, one of the holiest sites in Christianity.
For more on the friendly nature Christians face from their "Muslim friends" in the Holy Land, I recommend The Beleaguered Christians in Bethlehem. Here are some pull quotes:
"Christian families have long been complaining of intimidation and land theft by Muslims, especially those working for the Palestinian Authority."ML/NJ
"Moreover, several Christian women living in these areas have complained about verbal and sexual assaults by Muslim men. "
"As a Muslim journalist, I am always disgusted and ashamed when I hear from Christians living in the West Bank and Jerusalem about the challenges, threats and assaults that many of them have long been facing. The reason why I feel like this is because those behind the assaults and threats are almost always Muslims."
"For decades, the delicate and complicated issue of relations between Muslims and Christians in the Holy Land was treated by Palestinians as a taboo. Most Palestinians chose to live in denial, ignoring the fact that relations between the Muslim majority and the tiny Christian minority [about 10%] have been witnessing a setback, particularly over the past 15 years." (article was written in 2009)
What a bunch of godless heathens! Muslims trying to say that their way is it is insulting.
I don’t think Abbas will be with us much longer, poor soul.
I’ll try to contain my grief./sarc
