Mosques in Israel Shut Down to Encourage Muslims to Throng Temple Mount

Friday prayers normally held at hundreds of mosques in Arab towns in Israel were canceled in dozens of locations following pressure from local Muslim leaders to encourage thousands to throng the Temple Mount.

For five consecutive days, Muslim rioters have engaged in violent clashes targeting Israeli security forces in Jerusalem’s Old City near a main entrance to the Temple Mount.

    Standard routine here – Mo’s staging a terrorist attack and then crying wolf when the Israeli’s respond.
    Exactly what harm do metal detectors create unless Mo’s have been smuggling arms.
    It’s the late Moishe Dayan’s fault all of this is happening – Israel should have bulldozed the both Mosques on the Temple Mount in 1967. The Arab world was effectively emasculated by the ’67 war and couldn’t have responded – and today none of this BS would be happening.

    After decades of false claims that Israel is a threat to this decrepit mosque built on top of the holiest place in Judaism, it is time to stop this and bring out the bulldozers and expel the Muslim inciters and rioters to Syria where they originally came from.

    In a way, these demonstrations are a good thing. If the security forces are able to stand their ground, these mobs will prove to be paper tigers.

    Destroy the mosque.
