Israel refuses to remove metal detectors from mosque despite rising violence

Israelis and Palestinians braced for further confrontations in Jerusalem as death toll rises in wake of new security crackdown.

    The same Arab Muslims have to problem with metal detectors being used in Mecca, and they have been in use for some time. This fact confirms the big lie that this required security measure by Israel is an affront to Muslims and Islam. The issue is of course that any time non Muslims, especially Jews, refuse to submit to Muslims that is an affront to their supremacist ideology.

      Aren’t they used at the Wailing Wall too? The Arabs will look for any excuse to have their days of rage. Angry Arabs.

  • “despite”!?!

      Yeah I couldn’t read it all, it would shorten my lifespan too much. Six dead, sheesh, and of course the driving force of the violence is confusion over whether Israel is planing to replace or augment the metal detectors with cameras. Nothing to do with PA incitement to murder Jews. Of course no comments, maybe I’ll find the author on twitter.

    We should be searching every mosque for weapons caches and then bulldozing any that have stockpiles of arms. This hysteria is nothing more than the muslims upset that one of their stabby brethren will be stopped from adding to that mosques stockpile.

    The farce about all this is the fact that every non-muslim has for years had to go through a metal detector to gain access to the Temple Mount.
