That’s not a crazy over-reaction. But this routine safety precaution is being cast as an unprovoked intrusion on Muslims wishing to go to the mosque. Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas broke off security cooperation with Israel. Protests turned violent, with three people dying Friday, and three members of an Israeli family being murdered in a West Bank terrorist attack.
Abbas condemned the horrific attack on the Temple Mount, but his Fatah party called for a “day of rage” over the metal detectors. None of these actions considers that, without the terror attack that killed the two police officers, none of this would be happening.
HALAMISH, West Bank — The terrorist who killed Yosef Salomon, his son and his daughter, on Friday night knocked on the door of the Salomon home in the settlement of Halamish, and the family opened it thinking he was a guest who had come to celebrate the birth of their grandson, a neighbor said late Saturday.
The controversy surrounding the Israeli authorities’ decision to place metal detectors at the gates of the Temple Mount calls to mind the famous Arab saying, “he beat me and cried then came to me to complain.” This inversion of reality is a common among perpetrators who pretend to be victims.

Three Israelis were killed and one severely wounded in a stabbing attack in the West Bank town of Halamish on Friday evening.
The Israel Defense Forces reported that an assailant infiltrated a private home in the community of Halamish, also known as Neve Tsuf, north west of Ramallah, and stabbed four Israeli civilians. Three of the victims died as a result of their wounds, and one was evacuated to Shaare Tzedek hospital.
The assailant, whom Channel 2 identified as Palestinian, was shot by a neighbor. Palestinian media have identified the attacker as Omar al Abed, age 20, from the West Bank village of Khobar, near Ramallah. He left an online manifesto before the attack in which he stated that he felt obligated to act in light of recent events
… According to MDA, a 60-year-old man, a 60-year-old woman, and a 40 year-old-man, were killed, and a woman, 60, was injured.
…Hamas has issued a statement of support for the attack, calling it a “necessary reaction” to new Israeli security procedures at the Temple Mount. In a tweet, they called it “heroic.”
During his visit to France on Sunday to commemorate the 75th anniversary of the expulsion of French Jews in Paris, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu continued his incitement against Islam, while recalling the scarecrow of “Islamophobia” and describing Islam again as “terrorism.”
The Gazan creator of the game says it teaches children “values.” He also says that he consulted with social workers and psychologists to see if the game would have any negative effects on children, but these Palestinian experts all agreed that this is a positive game for children.
Critics of Israel claim Israel’s security checkpoints “restrict” and “humiliate” Palestinian travelers. They say the checkpoints force Palestinians to wait in long lines and disrupt their lives. They even say the existence of the checkpoints proves Israel still “occupies” the territories.
There’s one more fact about the checkpoints I should mention, because Israel’s critics never do: The checkpoints save lives. Many lives.
After a week-long ban on the sale of two Israeli wines produced in the West Bank — in a style eerily reminiscent of the anti-Semitic Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement — the Canadian government and LCBO backtracked late Thursday afternoon.
A mealy-mouthed statement from the Canadian Food Inspection Agency — which instituted the ban on the wines imported from Psagot and Shiloh Wineries — claimed they had not fully considered the Canada-Israel Free Trade Agreement in what they called their “wine labelling assessment.”
Two policemen were killed and a third was lightly wounded in a terror attack on Friday morning when three terrorists opened fire at Border Police forces at the Lions’ Gate in Jerusalem’s Old City. The three attackers were shot and killed by police.
Palestinian terrorist Rasmieh Odeh likely will be deported shortly after a federal judge formally sentences her next month for naturalization fraud. Her supporters are planning one final bash in her honor featuring radical political activist Angela Davis.
A promotion for the Aug. 12 event in Chicago notes it costs $5 – $6.17 with service fees – and promises “a night of music, poetry, and struggle.”
Both believe that Jews have no historical, religious or emotional attachment to the Holy Land.
The recent UNESCO resolutions concerning Jerusalem and Hebron are precisely what terror groups that deny Israel’s right to exist, such as Hamas, have long been hoping to hear from the international community.
The first resolution denies that Israel is the sovereign power over Jerusalem, including the Western Wall, while the second one designates Hebron and the Jewish Tomb of the Patriarchs as an “Endangered Palestinian World Heritage Site.”
The horror! The grapes were grown in the “Occupied Territory” of the West Bank! No imports from Psagot or Shiloh Winery’s until BDS approved Swastikas are added to the label.
This all sounds very “EU”, I wonder if that trade deal PM Useful Idiot signed with the commies in Brussels has anything to do with it? Compliance? Maybe. But given the CFIA is federal I suspect it’s just another example of Justin Trudeau’s “shared values with Islam”.
A decade after the Islamist group Hamas seized Gaza, the Palestinian enclave is effectively unliveable for its 2 million people, with declining incomes, healthcare, education, electricity and fresh water, the United Nations said.
In a report examining humanitarian conditions in the territory, which Hamas took over in June 2007 after a brief conflict with forces loyal to the Palestinian Authority, the United Nations concludes the situation in Gaza is deteriorating “further and faster” than was forecast only a few years ago.
“Across the board we’re watching de-development in slow motion,” Robert Piper, the UN Coordinator for Humanitarian Aid and Development Activities in the Occupied Palestinian Territory, told Reuters in an interview on Tuesday.
No surprise given that the book appears to be load of UN globalist bunk. This is Justin Trudeau’s shared values with Islam, this is what “Multiculturalism” has wrought.
“You might say the term child soldiers is employed when convenient considering the Grade 6 Social Studies textbook, Canada and the Global Community, published by Nelson Canada, being used in 800 elementary schools across the province.
The book’s first chapter on Human Rights claims that children are still being used in “armed conflicts” in more than 20 countries.
One of those countries listed – alongside Afghanistan, Colombia, Iraq, Libya and Yemen – is Israel.”
