Turning up the Heat

While I was on vacation last week (I swear, every blog entry THIS week starts with this…!), a new ‘fire’ was started.  I don’t know if anyone was paying attention among my friends/readers, but I had to post the information here, for posterity’s sake.  Because I was waiting for something to happen in Israel to start yet another round.  And I was hoping it would happen before the feasts (the lighting of the fire) so that there’d be a stoked blaze with a good bed of embers under it for when we got to the holy days.

Here’s what went down:


Now to make it clear to those who don’t live in Israel or visit much. Metal detectors are all over, a normal part of life here in Israel.  You go through them when entering most medical clinics, supermarkets, hospitals, universities, cinemas, theaters, malls and large stores. Men no longer use their trouser pockets as change purses, since even a few coins get the alarms ringing. Metal hairclips and even gold jewelry can do the same depending on the sensitivity setting of the security device. Jews, Arabs, tourists, yes, everyone is expected to be inspected. It’s a fact of life here. We’ve become very skilled at effortlessly piling our bags, backpacks, phones etcetera on security tables to be opened and conveyor belts that take them for x-rays.

Until a few days ago, the biggest exception to this rule was the Muslim-only entrances to the Temple Mount. While Jews and other non-Muslim tourists put up with very intensive security checks before ascending to the holy place, Moslems could just walk in with anything. Yes, that anything included weapons.

Now, due to the murder of two Israel Policemen by Muslims on the Temple Mount, finally the Israeli security authorities have installed metal detectors for Arab Muslims who want to enter the Temple Mount. And of course, the Arabs are rioting and using that as yet another excuse for murderous terror attacks against innocent Jews.

There is nothing at all to negotiate here. And there is absolutely no need for any foreigners to come to help mediate. The metal detectors must remain in place, and Arabs must undergo exactly the same security inspections as anybody else!!


Palestinian Authority Arabs and Israeli Arab MKs declared ‘victory’ Tuesday as Israel reversed security measures at the Temple Mount, and said their struggle for control over the compound also extends to the Western Wall.

 MK Taleb Abu Arar (Joint List) stressed that “Jews have no rights at al-Aqsa Mosque” and added that Muslims’ fight against Israel would continue, regardless of the cabinet decision to remove metal detectors from the entrances to the Temple Mount compound.  “This is a proven fact, [even if] some people are trying to re-write history in order to strengthen their mistaken claim to legitimacy over al-Aqsa Mosque, as well as to the occupied al-Buraq Wall (the Western Wall), which Muslims demand to be returned to our sovereignty.”

MK Masud Ganaim (Joint List) said the decision to remove the metal detectors, placed at the site following the murder of two policemen on July 14, was a “victory for the Palestinian public’s struggle and the demonstrations.  “It was a victory for the steadfast religious leadership and a victory for the political leadership in Jerusalem,” Ganaim said.

Ganaim’s declaration of victory closely matched views on the street in Palestinian Authority cities in Judea and Samaria. One resident of a refugee camp south of Jerusalem told Tazpit Press Service (TPS) that Arabic-language traditional and social media were abuzz with the “triumph” over Israel.

“In general, and as I see in the Palestinian news and social media, Palestinians consider it as a triumph,” said the individual, who spoke on condition of anonymity for fear of reprisals for “collaborating” by speaking to an Israeli media outlet. “The Israeli government changed its mind about the magnetometers and metal detectors after a huge popular pressure represented by the refusal of using them to get into al-Aqsa.”

…“Unfortunately,” said [an anonymous Muslim] man, who added that he enjoys close relationships with Israelis, including settlers, “the Israeli message to Israeli society over all this is to understand the bitter truth: The Palestinians, the Arabs and Muslims will not accept the concept of sharing the Temple Mount between both Muslims and Jews.”

aNNa’S NoTe:  So basically, Muslims killed two Jewish security guards on Temple Mount.  Israel provides the security for the site, so the cops were where they were supposed to be, doing what they were supposed to be doing.  But while Israel has metal detectors everywhere in the city, there are none on Temple Mount – site of the the MOST trouble.  So Israel put in metal detectors.  Honestly?  If you’re going to pray, does it matter?  In the interest of saving lives, wouldn’t it be right and fair?

But no.  The Palestinians (and other Muslims) immediately began rioting, killing Jews and their own people (!!!) in protest of the metal detectors.  So more violence.  Trying to diffuse the situation, Israel pulled the metal detectors off the Mount.  Now, as a result, the Muslims are saying they’re the political leadership over everything holy, including the Western wall that Solomon builtAnd that this was a ‘victory’ over Israel.  That they will NOT share anything with the ‘infidel’ nation of Israel.

This is big, because it’s pushing Israel back further than it has ever been before.  If they take the Western Wall?  Shit is gonna go down, but fast. So this is definitely worth watching.  And to reiterate?  Islam is blowing smoke out of their hineys about what belongs to whom:
