Exposed: Waqf Illegally Drilling on Temple Mount
INN ^ | 1/8/2014, 5:56 PM | Tova Dvorin

Muslim worshippers don’t just have more freedom to pray on the Temple Mount, a recent investigation reveals: they apparently also have permission to drill.

An investigation Monday by Yehuda Glick, Director of the Haliba organization for Jewish freedom on the Temple Mount, caught Waqf officials red-handed in the act of drilling through the ancient stones.

Vandalizing the Mount—Judaism’s holiest site and a national landmark for people of all religions—violates the law; when caught in the act on film, the perpetrators quickly tried to conceal their actions. …

To blow up the Temple Mount, home of the third holiest site in Islam?

Most likely to destroy any evidence of Jewish history, like they’ve been doing. But they probably don’t need explosives for that.

They only made it a holy site to upset the Jews. They couldn’t really care less about the place except as a point of contention.

Why on earth did Israel cede control of the Temple Mount to the Waqf? It’s time to take control and let the Palestinians declare another Intifada. Then, the IDF can crush these idiots.

Perhaps they wanted to make this holy site literally “holey”

Now, a neutron bomb would take care of vandals like this without damaging the relics, right?

They’ve been drilling and scooping under that mount for a very long time and for some oddball reason, nobody has been able to stop them.

Uh huh sure, the al-Aqsa mosque was constructed in 1948 as a political gesture.... c'mon.

Immediately after the Six Day War, Moshe Dyan ceded control of the Temple Mount to the Waqf to prevent the Israelis from building of a Third Temple on the site

When the f**k are mobs of Jews going to simply take back what is theirs...storm the Mount, beat up the Israeli jackboots doing the Muslims’s bidding, and shoot the Wakf and close down the Dome and Al Asqa?

On top of the remains of the Jewish temple erected in the B.C. era?

No, not really. The Aqsa mosque -- which is the 3rd holiest site in Islam -- was built on the site of a ruined and abandoned Byzantine church, which was itself built on the site formerly occupied by the Royal Stoa, a secular building on the Temple Mount built by Herod. It was built adjacent to the Second Temple, not on top of it.

You're probably thinking of the other mosque on the Temple Mount, the Dome of the Rock, which WAS built on the Temple site between 689 and 691 AD. Although it should be noted that when the Arabs got to Jerusalem, the actual Temple site had already been desecrated by a temple to the Roman God Jupiter.

My point is that pretending the existence of Islamic holy sites on the Temple Mount is a modern ruse is silly. The site is important to Jews and Muslims and has been since long before the creation of the modern state of Israel.

Islam has only been around since about 600 AD or so.

There had been 2 temples there on the mount, no mosques.

It is Islamic practice to erect mosques on top of Jewish or Christian sites as a sign of conquest. Nothing less. That is all that mosque is.

It is ONLY significant to them as a way to prevent the Jews from rebuilding the temple.

That is all.

622, but who's countig. Anyway 622 is a long time ago. In 622 AD, for example, what is now England was still overwhelmingly pagan.

Anyway, the Muslims didn't build on top of the Temple directly, they built on top of a Christian church (which was ruined at the time) which had been built on top of a Roman Temple to Jupiter which was built on top of the Jewish Temples.

It is ONLY significant to them as a way to prevent the Jews from rebuilding the temple.

I'm as pro-Israel as anyone, but that makes no sense. Muslims didn't fight the Crusaders for Jerusalem and the Temple Mount because they were worried that the Crusaders would rebuild the Temple.

Is there any reason to “drill” on the Mount except vandalism?

None besides that, FWICS.

The Waqf are openly hostile to the notion of Jews having any connection to the Temple Mount, especially spiritually.

This is the piece the media and liberals are very quiet about. When Obama and Kerry demand Israel negotiate from the 1967 border, they leave out the piece that the Wailing Wall is on the other side of that border - and the Jordanians did NOT give Jews access.

Sounds to me like you’d be more at home with a Muslim community.
