Skip to comments.Hamas: Obama Visit to Temple Mount a Declaration of War
Posted on 03/08/2013 12:44:08 PM PST by Olog-hai
The Hamas and Islamic Jihad terror groups threatened on Friday that a visit by U.S. President Barack Obama to the Temple Mount during his upcoming visit to Israel will be a declaration of war on the Arab and the Islamic world.
A Hamas representative in the Al-Aqsa mosque, Mushir al-Masri, even called for a third intifada (uprising) and for Egyptian assistance in the resistance if Obama chooses to visit the Temple Mount.
According to the Bethlehem-based Maan news agency, the Gaza-based terrorist organizations made the threats during a protest march on Friday over the riots that broke out earlier in the day on the Temple Mount. According to the report, Khalid al-Batash, a senior Islamic Jihad member, also called to prevent Obama from visiting the compound.
Obama will be arriving in the region later this month, and PA media has been widely speculating that he plans to visit the site of the Al-Aqsa mosque. However, Washington is not planning such a visit.

Our illustrious leader would never do anything to annoy his co-religionists.
Even if they kill normal people, he never criticizes them.
Obama: “This is a job for......(rips off shirt)...Poossyman! Stand back, good citizens. I’m going to my Cower Power”.
As if they needed another reason.
I read the headline and figured Obama was declaring war on Israel as an ally of Hamas.
Hamas, North Korea, Yeaman, Venezuela, Gosh, let’s see just how many places want to go to war with us?
Great job ya ,”magic negro” punk from chicago.
Well, they’ll know what to do about it.
The outcome should be on the late news tonight.
I imagine that security will be high for this photo op.
You've saved and scraped and sacrificed for years to save enough money to visit (during Easter) the place where our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ paid the highest price for our salvation only to find that the day you scheduled to take a guided tour of Jerusalem, Obama is also scheduled to be there and the city is on lockdown...
Barry to “grand mufti” “Tear these mosque walls down! Let the Jews have their little God-given country like the “holy” koran teaches us!”. (Am I missing something? Isn’t that what the Teleprompter will say?)
Does that mean they don't think he's a Muslim?
Unless I misunderstood the eighth and ninth paragraphs of the article, it was the Jews that let the Waqf hold on to the Temple Mount after the Six Day War, and in return, the Waqf keeps destroying Jewish antiquities on there. Sounds to me like they should have taken the whole thing back in earnest, the attitude of the leftist West be damned.
The Temple Mount was turned over to the Waqf not because of the ‘leftist West’, but because the socialist establishment in Israel wanted to stamp out any Messianic hopes that might sweep through the Jews of the world.
Defense Minister Moshe Dayan actually undercut Israeli PM Levi Eshkol in immediately ceding the Temple Mount (one of “the Holy Places of others”) to the Jordanian Waqf.
For insight into the issues involved in reestablishing Jewish sovereignty on the Temple Mount, see:
Gotta have a war before ya can have a 7 year peace treaty don’t ya know!
I did not say it was “because of the ‘leftist West’”. Take note though of the internationalist outlook of socialists, who really do not recognize national borders (this being one source of the left’s antipathy towards having a Jewish state in particular).
“I read the headline and figured Obama was declaring war on Israel as an ally of Hamas.”
Exactly. Why else poke the hornets nest?
... more Obama disinformation targeting America.
Brother Obama? no , no, noooooooo! he is not one of us....
Thanks Olog-hai. G’night all.

Apparently Obama had planned to go into the mosque
I just spoke with my contacts in Israel. They said Israeli news just reported that when Obama visits Israel, he wants to stand on the Temple Mount and visit the Al-Aqsa Mosque! It gets worse as he wants to enter the Temple Mount from the Arab entrance to Jerusalem, without any Israelis or without Israeli security! What an insult to Israel.
He wants to be alone with his Muslim buddies in the Al-Aqua mosque.
And to think that when I toured Israel in 1979, an infidel like me was able to visit both the Al-Aqsa Mosque and the Dome of the Rock without raising a big stink.
Handing back the keys after the 1967 war was a big, huge mistake.
I heard as much, from the church I attended in Florida.
