Israelisch Knessetlid bezoekt en claimt Tempelberg: "We own this place"

 

Wanneer rechtse Israeli’s en vooral Knessetleden de Tempelberg bezoeken is de wereld te klein. Een ongehoorde provocatie! Maar wanneer een Arabisch knessetlid dit doet, en daarbij opruiende opmerkingen maakt, is er niks aan de hand. Ahmed Tibi zei dat de Arabieren deze plaats bezitten en:

 

Jews are not allowed to pray at Al-Aqsa because this is a place of worship for Muslims. While this is a 70-dunam site, every single meter is holy to Islam."

Je zou zeggen dat de plaats groot genoeg is om ook een gebedshoekje voor Joden te hebben. Overigens is Israel, ondanks de vele geruchten, niet van plan om dit te gaan toestaan, omdat men weet dat dit tot grote problemen zal leiden. Dat laat onverlet dat het behoorlijk grof is wanneer een moslim, en bovendien een Israelisch parlementslid, zegt dat de Tempelberg met zijn geschiedenis en betekenis voor Joden, alleen heilig is voor moslims.

An Israeli MK visits the Temple Mount, yet Muslims are happy

Usually, when Israeli members of Knesset visit the Temple Mount, it causes an international incident. No matter how respectful they are, no matter of their entire tour is silent, it causes screaming headlines in the Arab world and even in the mainstream media.

But yesterday am Israeli MK ignored calls from the government for calm, visited the Mount, made provocative statements, and yet caused no controversy in the Arab world.

Because this MK is Muslim.

 

 

Despite calls to calm tensions in Jerusalem and at the Temple Mount, Arab MK Ahmed Tibi (UAL-Ta'al) arrived at al-Aqsa mosque over the weekend declaring: "We own this place." 

He was received favorably by Muslim worshippers who told him he was "better than all the Arab leaders in the world."

Tibi was treated like a hero on his visit to the holy site. Worshippers told Tibi he was a great Arab leader "because of your strong positions." He has visited the site several times during the recent period of tension.

Tibi visited the European Parliament two weeks ago in order to express what he said were Israeli violations at al-Aqsa mosque.

He claimed that some Israeli politicians were "pyromaniacs that cannot be restrained" and said that "they inflame the situation in Jerusalem without thinking about the consequences."

 

Two weeks ago, Tibi said "Jews are not allowed to pray at Al-Aqsa because this is a place of worship for Muslims. While this is a 70-dunam site, every single meter is holy to Islam."

Then, as now, there were no infuriated Westerners aghast at this insult to Jews and Judaism, no one calling on him to act with restraint, no one saying that he was inciting violence.

The rules are different for Arabs and Jews. Not for Israelis and non-Israelis, not Zionists and anti-Zionists - but between Arabs and Jews.
