Kamil al-Khatib and Another Absurdly Ludicrous Accusation

 

Kamil al-Khatib, the deputy head of the Islamic Movement in Israel, has made an accusation which has managed to target Israel; an Israeli activist, Yehuda Glick; Arab Authorities in general; and likely inferring every power on earth which has not rushed to prevent what he calls the “Judaizing actions” to the al-Aqsa Mosque. We further quote Kamil al-Khatib from his interview with the Hamas newspaper ‘Falastin’ with his most vicious claim of all, “His (Yehuda Glick’s) settlers hold Talmudic ceremonies and settler weddings around the al-Aqsa Mosque, and these are dangerous signs that they see their imaginary Temple in the al-Aqsa Mosque. This is in spite of the agreements the Jordanian regime made to prevent any Talmudic ceremonies within the area of the al-Aqsa Mosque.” His final jab hits a bullseye pointing to the presumed agreement between Israel and Jordan to enforce a status quo which forbids Jewish prayers on the Temple Mount. This status quo referred to came into the lexicon after the attempted assassination of Temple Mount activist Yehuda Glick who barely survived four shots into his chest at point blank range on October 29, 2015. A terrorist pulled up in a scooter or motorcycle and shot him before fleeing the scene (aftermath video coverage below showing response but not actual attack). Yehuda Glick had just departed the Begin Center where he had just spoken at an event and was shot by Mu’taz Hijazi who was employed at the Begin Center despite former criminal arrests and known links with terrorism. There has been a sliding status quo placing ever increasing limitations on Jews and other non-Muslims as time progresses and after any meetings and demanded concessions forced on Israel and the World in efforts to ever enforce the strength and power of Arab Palestinian claims to more and more areas still demanding the formation of their rule over all of the lands between the Jordan River and the Mediterranean Sea, that means all of Israel.

 

 

 

 

Kamil al-Khatib and the Islamic Movement in Israel have been banned from organized events or actions after they issued threats against the lives of Israelis, both officials and Jews in general. It took a build-up of threats including that Muslims would “eliminate the Jews from history: and further stated in that interview, “This will be the final nail in the coffin of the Oslo Accords, because the Palestinian people are tired of all the false promises and visions and its volcano is exploding.” Kamil al-Khatib was also calling for Israeli Arabs to take part in the “intifada” against Israel. A full-blown war between Israeli Arabs and the Netanyahu government is “just a matter of time,” He also held that a statement by Deputy Foreign Minister Tzipi Hotovely that the Land of Israel belongs to the Jewish people was simply reflective of the feelings of most Israelis, and as such were statements which “merely highlight the religious nature of the dispute.

 

He gave an interesting and revealing sermon equating the holy warriors who had attacked infidel in Paris with the purification of France during the Protestant wars with the Catholics of France and the Inquisition in Spain from starting in 1492 when the Christians (Catholics) rallied to retake the lands of southern Spain (Andalusia) which had been conquered by largely Moorish Muslims from northwestern Africa which had stormed across the Straights of Gibraltar almost a millennia earlier and had imposed restrictive laws on Christians, Jews and other non-Muslims which were fought back by King Ferdinand and Queen Isabella who persecuted the Muslims and Jews and non-Catholics. These were the religious wars which plagued the years responding to the encroachment and explosive breakout of Islam and the Arab tribes from their original homelands in the Arabian Peninsula and swallowed-up lands and peoples across North Africa, Persian Middle East, the remains of the Byzantine Empire and Egypt as well as the Holy Lands. The Crusades were an answer to the persecution of Christians in the Holy Lands which brought the conquest by Salah al-Din (Saladin) all of which dates back an average of half a millennia to a modern terrorist attack in a modern western capital because it has not fallen under the Islamic sword. Below is his sermon from November 29, 2015, in Kafr Kana, Israel, the very nation he declares must be brought under the sword through an internal Intifada yet it took his actual calls for violence before he was denounced but is still free and inciting.

 

 

 

 

Those calling for the murder and conquest of Israel are protected, which is not necessarily an evil thing to allow opposing views, but not when Yehuda Glick is denied entry to the Temple Mount simply because he argues that the Jews and other non-Muslims have religious freedom and under such should have free access to the Temple Mount. He is not calling for anybody to enter a single Mosque, Church, Cathedral, the al-Aqsa or the Dome of the Rock but the freedom to visit one of the holiest locations in Christianity and the holiest place in Judaism. In Israel a foreign element is granted control and restricts movement and worship in open locations in the holiest site in all of a presumed free Israel where every religion is presumed to have equality and freedom of worship, well, except where Islam is granted any sway. Israel does not restrict Islamic visitation to the holy places in Damascus, Muslim warfare does. Israel does not limit Islamic worship in Mecca or Medina nor does Israel desire to but through Jordan the Islamic world is limiting religious freedom in Israel. There is one word for that situation, ‘Wrong,’ just plain and simple wrong. The Temple Mount should be a place of reverence and free worship and open tourism with each faith responsible for the buildings they own, plain and simple. Further building on the Temple Mount might present a different subject where a board with members of each faith having advisory weight but it should be the government of Israel with full understanding of the sensibility of every faith represented and holding the site as holy as the main criteria for all decisions. Extremism of any sort should be avoided, especially calls to violence.

And about the envisioned threat of the building of the Third Temple, well, the picture below depicts a placement which is one potential resolution but there are endless possibilities which include the erection of the Third Temple in an alternate location all together. There are always alternatives except when, apparently, Islam has found anything that might be a slight to their sensibilities or their perception of losing face as pride is apparently a very important foundation in modern Islam and their pride apparently is deeply rooted in possessions and a fact that enough is never enough when Islam is involved. One needs to wonder what would be the reaction if the World’s Jews with Israeli support decided to build the Third Temple as a towering edifice atop the Mount of Olives overlooking the great Mount of Olives Cemetery, an ancient and still used burial grounds which holds the graves of numerous greats of Jewish history, a Temple which would stand out all but unrivaled in the Jerusalem skyline towering above even the tallest of structures. One can only imagine the howlings of foul play and detracting from the holy places already in existence and claims galore that the lands of such plans was holy to every religion other than Judaism. We have already heard claims that the First Temple and Second Temple were simply figments of Jews’ imaginations having had two too many machinations for claiming Jerusalem from the rightful and original builders of the Western Wall and the city walls which were constructed for Muhammad to tie off his magical steed to climb aboard another magical steed before his ascent into Heaven where he met with all the ancient Islamic prophets such as Moses and Abraham and who knows who else, perhaps Daniel and Ezekiel; Deborah and Ruth, Kings David and Solomon and who knew these were Islamic Prophets who predated Islam by an average of two-thousand years.

What would be your reaction if I now explained that this is about Israeli settlers placing wanted dead or alive posters of Mahmoud Abbas and other leaders in the Palestinian Authority around their areas inciting for these people to be targeted for assassination. You would immediately condemn these acts as depraved and illegal to be roundly condemned by every sane and rational society and that the people responsible to be arrested and tried for being accessories instigating violence and for violating the human rights and a litany of other offenses. What would be your reaction if instead of posting such tacky posters it was reported that they had placed an exhibit as part of an exhibit on Judea and Samaria a picture of Marwan Hasib Ibrahim Barghouti sitting in a prison cell with rifle site bullseye on his head and another in the middle of his chest. Again you would be rightfully enraged at such a grievous act of inhumanity and demand the people responsible to be arrested. If any of these were to be true I would not only be joining you in your calls for people to be arrested for such vapid displays of inhumanity and criminal instigation expressed as some warped and weird form of art but actually merely expressing a hate-filled inhumane message which should lead to arrests of the people responsible for the entire exhibit and the authors or artists responsible for this and such display to await trial on charges of hate crimes and assaults on the human rights of another human being, I would be trumpeting the call for trials for acts violating the human rights of Marwan Barghouti. Fortunately such exhibits or posters are not the case and would very likely never be the case and should such distasteful exhibits and behaviors ever be exhibited by the settlers or any other Israeli, they would be arrested by the Israeli police and put on trial for their heinous deeds and the offending pieces removed from public display.

 

 

Yehuda Glick assassination exhibit at new exhibition on "Jerusalem" at the An-Najah University in Shechem (Nablus) made up of anti-Israel incitement, expressed through pictures and other displays.

Yehuda Glick assassination exhibit at new exhibition on “Jerusalem” at the An-Najah University in Shechem (Nablus) made up of anti-Israel incitement, expressed through pictures and other displays.

 

 

But such acts have been placed on display including the pictured above piece which is an actual depiction of Yehuda Glick in an assassination display at new exhibition on “Jerusalem” at the An-Najah University in Shechem (Nablus) consisting of anti-Israel, anti-Semitic and anti-Zionist incitement exhibits expressed through pictures and other displays. This exhibition includes the assassination display and comes a mere five months after Yehuda Glick was shot at point-blank range receiving four bullets into his torso leading to his extended treatment in the hospital where he received numerous surgeries to repair the damage and save his life. This disgusting call for further targeting of Yehuda Glick for assassination comes only weeks after Yehuda Glick was finally released from hospitalization and having regained normal body function which was in itself a true and real miracle, Baruch HaShem. The shooter, we should say assassin except for his failure, Baruch HaShem, was sent by Islamic Jihad who desired Yehuda Glick murdered because of his actions to permit Jews their right to pray on the Temple Mount in Jerusalem and currently under the supervision of the Jordanian Waqf which forbids all prayer other than Muslim. This ban also is applied to Christians and other religions and not just Jews though their application and enforcement is strongest against Jews. One might believe that the Arabs Muslims who make up the Jordanian supervision are afraid that Jewish prayers coming from the Temple Mount which was the site of the first two Temples would have special treatment and be heard by G0d receiving immediate fulfillment and since such prayers might invoke the desire for the rebuilding of the Temple that such might produce a completed Temple falling out of the sky and replacing Islamic buildings. If only such would occur showing the might of G0d and His love for the Jewish People and through the performance of such a great and unmistakable miracle, have it understood that this miracle was for all Jews throughout the world calling upon them to return to the lands G0d gave us after he took us from the house of bondage in Egypt. Such a miracle would make belief that the Covenant with the Jewish People still exists and is as real and miraculous today as it has ever been and that this miraculous act of great love by G0d would make His continued performance of the greatest magnitude showing love for the Jewish People and preparing Israel for the coming. It was for protesting for the Jews right to pray upon the Temple Mount for which Yehuda Glick has been targeted for assassination and anyone who is able to murder Yehuda will be celebrated as having committed some great and noble act and there will be dancing in the streets in Nablus and throughout the Palestinian Arab areas of Gaza and Judea and Samaria (West Bank) accompanied by music and the handing out of sweet cakes and candies. Such are the kind of acts which are celebrated amongst the Arabs. These societal laudable moments revolve around murders of Israelis, especially Jews.

 

Imagine if as depicted at the beginning of this article that such exhibits were placed on display in some small but well-known museum; say the hall of Middle Eastern Studies of Tel Aviv University which they use to sponsor displays pertaining to historic and modern-day exhibits included pictures of well-known Arab Muslims from Hamas, Fatah and Islamic Jihad, even terrorists who had the blood of numerous Israelis on their hands, with targets on their chests and heads calling for their assassination. The media throughout the world and the heads of states of European and other Western nations, the Arab League, the United Nations, Russia, China, and probably all the nations in Asia and Africa would all be denouncing Israel and placing complete trade embargoes on Israel until those responsible for such crimes against humanity and complete disregard for human lives as well as hate crimes against the Palestinian Arabs and their leaders who were so mercilessly targeted in the exhibits and the museum curator and other heads of departments and the President and other officers of Tel Aviv University had all been indicted, tried, found guilty and given decades if not centuries of time in prison for such a heinous display of tasteless and dehumanizing displays. Yet with similar such displays being sponsored and offered for public viewing by An-Najah University in Shechem has yet to raise so much as a ripple of effect across the world with a complete absence of protest from the usually sensitive Europeans, the ever-aware and responsive President of the United States, the presumed nerve-center for the world the United Nations or any leader, public figure, mainstream media figure, academic, human rights advocate or other normally so sensitive people, institutions, religious leader or nongovernmental organization has stepped up to condemn or even merely comment about this display of incitement to violence including the singling of one person for directed violence intending to depict a call for the assassination of an Israeli citizen and political human rights activist.

 

The propensity for the world to simply accept any hate-filled message, display, language, or even political act calling for violence and murder of Jews, not just Israelis but all Jews as is part of the Hamas charter, the Islamic Jihad charter and the PLO charter, the same PLO which changed its name but not its ends desired transforming their name to Palestinian Authority which absolved them of their previous sins and cleansed them of their terrorist roots, and to simply stand aside from such hate-filled vitriol and displays such as this An-Najah University presentation is simply astonishing in the most disgusting manner. You might ask for what do the world leaders and human rights defenders and activists wait for, and we will tell you. They wait for any Israeli reaction which they will then become incensed demanding the head of the Israeli or Jewish response calling for the removal of such offensive material especially the calls for Yehuda Glick to be targeted especially. Such calls for the termination of this display, if it were to be made by any Israeli or Jewish leader the world official conscience would respond with righteous indignation at the effrontery of an attempt to censor a rightful and deeply moving display of artistic and emotive presentations expressing the longing and love for Jerusalem which the Israelis and world Jewry are denying the Palestinians their rights to visit and pray at the Temple Mount (Palestinians refer to the Temple Mount as Haram al-Sharif الحرم القدسي الشريف‎) and who are denied a decent life or even peace which the Palestinians long for but are constantly denied such by the Jews. Never mind that the Palestinians and any Muslim is granted full rights to pray, visit, picnic, play soccer or any other activity and may utilize any of the gates to enter the Temple Mount while non-Muslims are restricted to a single gate, are searched for any offensive items such as religious books or symbols which are not Islamic and if Jewish kept for special treatment which includes open hostilities, denials of the right to pray, denial of any action which is detected and inferred to be religious such as moving one’s lips without speaking, speaking, looking skyward, kneeling, standing still, clasping one’s hands possibly holding one’s breath or breathing as well as being set upon and attacked for which the Jews who are being assaulted and are the obvious victims are removed from the Temple Mount, not the offending Muslims and Palestinians.

 

With such reinforcement of their rioting being sufficient reason to close the Temple Mount to Jewish visitation and assaulting any Jews who do ascend to the holiest place in all of the world for Jews, the Jewish police will remove the Jews as the Jordanian Waqf had defined rioting Muslims as being rooted to having been instigated by any Jewish presence on their holy land which the Jews are to be deprived despite its sacred importance to Jews. Eventually the assaults and other acts of intolerance by the Islamic world will cause a reactive eruption which will bring everything to a critical boiling point and the results of such are impossible to predict. Should there ever be an assault whereby rockets rain down unabated and not intercepted causing a number of the tallest buildings to burn or even be destroyed toppling them into heaps of ruinous twisted steel and broken glass infused with hundreds or even thousands of victims corpses beneath the rubble, then the reaction will be beyond imagination but it will bring the end to any claims by the so-called and mythical Palestinian people, nation or rights and claims to any lands between the river and the sea. After such an unbearable loss, which would most likely be the eventual result of a peace treaty in which Israel would surrender and almost all of Judea and Samaria as well as East Jerusalem, all the way to the Green Line, with minor swaps of land by some formula; the cry for relief from such attacks merging with a promise of a permanent end would result in a war in which only one side would prevail. This inevitability would be far from the first incitement as that would be the publically displayed destruction put on Facebook and other social media of Kever Yosef (Joseph’s Tomb), Kever Rachel (Rachel’s Tomb) and numerous other Jewish Holy Sites including numerous Synagogues throughout East Jerusalem which have been rebuilt since the Six Day War. Another effrontery would be the refusal by the Palestinians to honor their agreement for Jews to be permitted to enter their areas to visit Holy Sites even the Western Wall, the Kotel. The assault with such a rocket barrage that it would prove beyond the abilities of Iron Dome Batteries to intercept every rocket and missile and too many would strike Tel Aviv and surrounding areas destroying many vital sites and buildings as well as an unacceptable number of slain civilians. The world would scream for Israel to hold their fire and to show restraint but even Tzipi Livni or Yitzhak Hertzog would be pressured to respond, though meekly and without any real change in the status quo, but such attacks would soon bring a heavy hand across the Palestinian lands wiping them clean and forcing those within to flee likely returning to their families’ original home nation never even considering a return to Israel. Such would bring finality to the peace process as it would produce an actual winner and that is the only solution which can be definitive as truth be told, either Israel is destroyed or the Arabs denied their beachheads in Judea, Samaria and Gaza as this is the real choice the Arab world and the Palestinians have defined as the only end. Actually the Arab world depicts the end of Israel as the only acceptable end, it is just they do not wish to provide their own forces and take casualties which fighting the IDF would produce, thus they invented the Palestinians to fight the war for them using guerrilla warfare and other means of asymmetrical warfare to wear Israel down to the point they simply surrender. “Never Again” means never again will Jews not have their nation and never again will the Jews be vulnerable to another genocidal maniac and their desire to rid the world of its Jews as has been tried and failed over the past four or five millennia, and it will not happen now, “Never Again!”

They Tried to Assassinate the Man to Kill an Idea Whose Time has Come

Yehuda Glick will likely be branded as a right wing extremist, a fanatically religious extremist, anti-Palestinian, an impediment to peace, a Temple Mount extremist demanding this area held holy by three major religions be restricted for only Jews, a heretic who is setting the Middle East on fire and virtually any lie they can believably attempt to sell to make his assassination attempt appear to be deserved. Temple Mount activist Yehuda Glick was not any of these things, he was a man who advocated for religious freedom for the Temple Mount and to permit everybody to pray and worship as they see fit without fear of arrest or being banned from visiting the Temple Mount simply to satisfy the Islamic Waqf which is governed from Amman, Jordan. The Islamic Waqf enforces the restriction allowing solely Muslim prayers on the Temple Mount and forbids even the carrying or wearing of religious items on the Temple Mount as they could offend Muslim sensitivities. For his efforts to establish freedom of religion for all at one of the most universal religious locations on Earth Yehuda Glick was shot three times in the torso and lies in intensive care awaiting prayed for stabilization sufficient to permit further surgeries to mend the torn and punctured organs. Yehuda Glick needs the prayers of the world now as all the surgeons and physicians were able to accomplish was to control his bleeding, both internal and external, and stabilize him at the cusp between life and death as of this writing. The truth is the fight which Yehuda Glick struggle against placed his life on the line as he saw the real importance and full implications of his fight as it is the struggle to safeguard the right of religions other than Islam to exist in this world and be regarded as having equal rights and equal space. He was fighting on a significant though small scale of the war for the survival of Judaism and Christianity against the hegemonic and exclusionary threats from Islam, particularly extremist Islam such as the attitude that only Islamic prayers be allowed on the Temple Mount today, and in Jerusalem later and eventually, should Islamic active leaders who hold the positions of power have their way, having Judaism, Christianity, Hinduism, Buddhism, Shinto and any religion other than Islam or even those who claim no religious preference from being forced into Islam or face death by the sword as commanded by the Quran and Sharia.

 

What was the most disgusting reality which has been proven today has been the lack of concern or even mention on much of the mainstream media and political talk shows about this attempted assassination in the heart of Jerusalem which was the first actual shots in the war for the rights to have any religious freedom in Jerusalem or face Jerusalem being made the third Islamic holy city after Mecca and Medina and like them becoming forbidden place for any other than Muslims. The struggle for dominion over the Temple Mount is the central struggle for Jerusalem and eventually all of Israel and then Europe and the Americas and then the remainder of the world. This is the fight which animated Yehuda Glick and the driving force which will hopefully also allow him with the help of G0d to not just survive this horrid assault but to thrive and return to his life’s quest with renewed vigor and even more intensity, if such is even possible. May the assassination attempt on Temple Mount activist and realist win him thousands of supporters for every minute his life straddles the cusp between life and death and may the new support for his struggle also benefit his fight to live and once again be with his family and friends and return to walk and pray freely and openly on the Temple Mount. May his vision of a Synagogue at the least and the rebuilt Temple as must be his dream as it is mine and millions of Jews throughout the world as we have held that desire sacred over the centuries since the Roman sacking of the Temple and Jerusalem the year 70.

 

This wanton act of hatred has disturbed me greatly even though I have never had the privilege or pleasure to have met and shared a discussion concerning his dream and life’s driving quest. The respect I have for the public effort and stand Yehuda Glick has pressed for all of his recent life is boundless which makes the lack of concern or even mention his attempted assassination has caused beyond Israel. There has been no denunciation from United Nations Secretary General Ban Ki-moon, the one leader who can always be counted amongst those who will denounce Israel using the slightest of force to end rioting and rock assaults upon Israeli commuters along any Israeli road which passes by numerous Arab neighborhoods around Jerusalem and beyond. There has been no concern from European Union Foreign Secretary the Lady Catherine Ashton who routinely condemns Israel. No wishes for a recovery or concerns coming from heads of state from every corner of the globe. There has been nothing from President Obama or Secretary of State Kerry other than the unnamed administration source according to Jeffrey Goldberg who slurred Prime Minister Netanyahu as coward using the most egregious and base slang terminology.

 

There were comments from Jordan’s Islamic affairs minister, Hayel Daoud, who accused Israel of “state terrorism” for closing the Temple Mount for a few hours immediately after the assassination attempt which occurred in the relative proximity. Then there was the Arab street across the Arab neighborhoods in Jerusalem who danced in the streets handing out sweets and candies celebrating the attempted assassination of a Jewish leader. Meanwhile, Mahmoud Abbas released a press release denouncing Israel for the instigating of violence and destructions on the Temple Mount and throughout Jerusalem, a usual action taken by Abbas every time there are any acts which might reflect poorly on Palestinians should they receive coverage such as the assassination attempt. This tactic has proven very effective as any articles begin with the Abbas denunciation of the Israelis and paints any rioting or acts of violence as honest reaction to whatever Abbas was referencing. There is no verification of Abbas and his charges but they are transmitted around the world before any coverage contrary to the blame Israel complaints from Abbas reach the media making it always to appear as if Israel is reacting to claims against their phantasmal extremist acts. There was the statement from Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu who stated, “I would like to send my best wishes for a full and quick recovery to Yehuda Glick, who is now fighting for his life. I would also like to commend the ISA and the Israel Police for quickly solving this act of terrorism.” His congratulations were for their response and attempt to arrest the assassin who had attempted to murder Yehuda Glick who resisted arrest shooting at IDF troops supporting the arrest who returned fire killing the terrorist. Prime Minister Netanyahu further commented, “A few days ago, I said that we were facing a wave of incitement by radical Islamic elements and by Palestinian Authority Chairman Abu Mazen (Mahmoud Abbas nom de guerre) who said that Jews must be prevented from going up to the Temple Mount by any means possible. I still have not heard from the international community so much as one word of condemnation for these inflammatory remarks. The international community needs to stop its hypocrisy and take action against inciters, against those who try to change the status quo.” The Prime Minister could have continued with the same criticism over the silence of the international community of nations, leaders and other political and ambassadorial persons and the busybodies who regularly are very vocal decrying any and every act from Israel. The silence is deafening and reveals the reality that as far as the world is concerned the life of leading Israelis and possibly even of any Jews has no worth nor generates any level of concern though every level of scorn is permissible at any time for any reason. This has clarified much as the world could not care less that a leading Temple Mount activist and founder of a front line human and religious rights organization, LIBA Initiative for Jewish Freedom on the Temple Mount, who was obviously targeted for nationalistic reasons, a polite wording which means terrorist act steeped in a deep and hot hatred which is a direct result from the instigations and defamations and plain outright calls for the murder of Jews for the supposed crime of breathing which is repeated daily throughout Palestinians society including from Mahmoud Abbas and the rest of the Palestinian leadership from Fatah, Hamas, Islamic Jihad and others, in textbooks paid for by the European Union, United States, United Nations and European governments, media, cartoons and other children’s programming, youth groups and throughout the societal structures. Perhaps from this unfortunately angry and probably not so well written article there might start a ripple carrying the information that a man who simply journeyed through life exerting every ounce of his energy in attempts to establish a Jewish presence and equal rights for all religions on the Temple Mount with an emphasis for Christians and Jews who suffer most directly from the Islamic oppression being enforced by the Waqf appointed by Jordanian leadership as part of an agreement whereby Israel took steps to guarantee Islamic equal rights on the Temple Mount and has resulted in solely Islamic religious rights on the Temple Mount, the indifference must stop here. Below is an excerpt from Yehuda Glick’s final speech he delivered before leaving the Begin Center and being shot almost fatally by an Islamic Jihad terrorist.
