Israel faces mounting Palestinian anger over holy site metal detectors

July 21, 2017

Palestinian Hamas militants take part in a military show against Israel's newly-installed security measures at the entrance to the al-Aqsa mosque compound in Khan Younis in the southern Gaza StripJERUSALEM (Reuters) – Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu considered removing on Thursday metal detectors at a Jerusalem holy site after their installation following a deadly attack last week stirred up Palestinian protests and threats of escalation.

There have been nightly confrontations between Palestinians hurling rocks and Israeli police using stun grenades in Israeli-annexed East Jerusalem since the devices were placed on Sunday at entrances to the Temple Mount-Noble Sanctuary compound.

Tensions were high ahead of Friday prayers when thousands of Muslims usually flock to al-Aqsa mosque, Islam’s third holiest shrine, in the compound above Judaism’s sacred Western Wall.

Palestinian factions vowed it would be a “day of rage” and confrontation with Israeli forces, which put five army regiments on standby to reinforce troops in the occupied West Bank.

    Nothing is the Muslims, they have not one tie to any of the Holy Lands.

    The Muslims have no right to anything in the Holy Lands. Muhammad was born thousands of years after the Jews a nation and Jerusalem their capital. The Jews Holy mountain is where they built the Temple to Yaweh and placed the Ark. None of that is Muslim history. Muhammad never visited Jerusalem except in a dream. “The Night Journey.”

    Israel and all in it was given to the Jews. The League of Nations had 50 plus countries that stated it was indeed Jewish and their land. The king of Arabia was all for it at that time also. It was when the League of Nations turned over to the UN that things went sour and there was a new ruling family the Saudi.

    This is Israel’s fault for allowing Muslims to live on their land and be citizens of their country. They should throw them all out and make Israel what it was meant to be, their homeland.

      Well said, Tiger. The “Palestinians” are actually squatters. They are the ones occupying Israel’s land, not the other way around. Israel is in fact, inhabiting only a fraction of the land they SHOULD be. Much of the surrounding areas are also Israel’s by right. The Abrahamic covenant ensures the Jews have an EVERLASTING right to live in the land God gave them ;

        Thank you oh yes I am well aware of the entire history of Israel and daily Biblical Archeology is finding more and more proof that she belongs to the Jews. Thank you for the video will watch it.

          Video ? I linked to an article. I think you confused me with someone else lol But it’s good that you keep yourself informed. Many do not. Or worse, they don’t want to know the truth.

          By the way. I am watching with keen interest what is happening currently with the Temple Mount / Al Aqsa mosque events. Zechariah prophesies that half of Jerusalem ( the eastern half ) will be taken by force. This sets off a chain reaction of events that leads to war, and the second coming of Jesus Christ. Given how extremely tense the situation is over such a historically sensitive site, it is easy to see how things could escalate out of control and fulfil that prophesy.

          Keep safe, and God bless Israel !

            “The Fight for Jerusalem” by Dore Gold one of the best books and histories ever written on Israel. In the Appendix he lists everything that was ever done that involved Israel and the rest of the world. Starting with the Excerpts from 1864 British Consular Report: Jerusalem Demographics in 1863 to UN Charter……Relevant articles……Chapter VI, chapter VII, and Article 80.

            I am also watching and amazed, although American news even FOX not worth much anymore, the lack of coverage of the entire mess along with the story of the family that was killed just recently. The sad thing is that the ignorance related to Israel not to mention Islam in America is rampant and none of it is good for any of us.

            I am aware of the Prophecy and with the attempt by Progressive/Communists in the past 40 plus years, America has fast gone down a dark path the world has gone down before and Christianity is under attack daily by our Left Radicals. God will have to Bless us all cause it is out of our hands in too many ways now.


            Paul Harvey a Great commentator said this and so true.
