Arab League Furious over Jewish Prayer on Temple Mount
Israelnationalnews.com ^ | 8/24/09 | Maayana Miskin

Posted on 08/24/2009 11:52:09 AM PDT by Nachum

(IsraelNN.com) The Arab League reacted with fury on this week to reports that a small group of Jews had prayed on the Temple Mount on Sunday. Secretary-General Amr Moussa termed the spontaneous prayer gathering “a violation of international law.”

Rabbi Yisrael Ariel, head of the Temple Institute in Jerusalem, led the guided tour on the Temple Mount. While guards on the mount have a policy of preventing Jewish prayer or religious gestures such as kneeling or bowing, Rabbi Ariel's group managed to briefly pray at the site.

"This is the first time since 1967 that Jews have conducted prayers on Al-Aksa during the month of Ramadan,” Moussa declared. “We condemn this act,”

Ramadan is supposed to be a time for prayer — where’s the problem?

The Arabs need to get some IPhones or something. My word, everytime you turn around, they’re wee-weed-up about something.

Tremble in me boots. Guess whose furious again?

upset about one thing or another.

The place was established as the singularly holiest of all places to pray for the Jews thousands of years before Islam was founded.

Denying Jews a chance to pray there seems pretty damn sick.

The muslim authorities have deliberately destroyed many archaeological finds which relate to the Jewish temples (small portions of a frieze, etc.).

That kind of destruction should be condemned internationally—but, of course, it isn’t.

(And by the way, by international law Jews and Christians and everyone else should have the right to freedom of religion in Saudi Arabia, too—and the right to pray there.
Still waiting for that one...and for international condemnation of the refusal to permit this...)

According to the arabs, history doesn’t start until after they took over there. The fact that the jews were there for thousands of years beforehand is irrelevant to them.

Maybe the Moooslims are afraid that Israeli’s might just be praying to the true God and they might be praying to free Jerusalem from Muoooslim hands....????

Followers of Satan NEVER want anyone to pray to ELOHIM

I look forward to the day that my soon to be born grandson asks me, “Grandpa, what is a muslim?”

And I can answer,”They are like the dinosaurs; they are all dead.”

“Grandpa, what is a koran”?
“Child, that is what we call toilet paper.”

I'm sure the Jews they refer to said to themselves, "Hey, It's Ramadan, let's go pray."

When was there ever a time when they weren’t “furious” about some damn thing or another? Living their lives in perpetual “outrage.”

I've seen that bumper sticker numerous times, and ALL THE TIME the driver looks like they left half their brain under their bed, still wrapped in the plastic from the factory. If these boobs had two brain cells to rub together, they'd realize the folly of their position.

"We will have peace, when you and all your works have perished- and the works of your dark master to whom you would deliver us." Theoden to Saruman, but very applicable to followers of Islam and Mohammed (Pork be upon him).

When they captured that section of the city in the 1967 war, the Israelis should have just razed the Islamic sites.

Uh, oh - guess I am going to be on Interpol’s most wanted - prayed there to the God of Abraham, Issac and Jacob in the name of our Lord Jesus of Nazareth over 3 years ago and He is still answering those prayers.

Can you imagine if the Palestinians have any control over Jerusalem? No one but Muslims would be allowed to pray as it is all over the Muslim world.

Amen. The biggest mistake Israel ever made was leaving the Temple Mount in the hands of the waqf.

It’s the same G-d, too. Isn’t it? Moslems and Jews do worship the same G-d, don’t they? Don’t they? If Jews praying to G-d on their holiest site is a violation of international law, then international law is an ass (the animal, not the body part). Since asses are made to bear, international law should learn to bear it. The Masjid alAqsaa is standing on occupied ground, and the Waqf is deliberately destroying archaeological evidence. The sooner they are both gone from there, the better. Put that in your hooka and smoke it.

There was that time when they didn’t have anything to be furious and outraged about something, back in 1300. They were outraged and furious that they had nothing to be outraged and furious about, and blamed the joos for it.

When visiting the Temple Mount for the first time, I recommend singing a psam of Steven Spielberg, preferably loud enough to be heard. It starts like this:

Many nights we prayed,
With no proof anyone could hear,
In our hearts a hopeful song
We barely understood.
Now we are not afraid,
Although we still have much to fear.
We’ve been moving mountains long
Before we knew we could.

There can be miracles
When you believe
Though hope is frail,
It’s hard to kill.
Who knows what miracles
You can achieve.
When you believe,
Somehow you will.
You will when you believe.

Google the rest. The librarian is kicking me off.
