How many ways can Linda Sarsour misrepresent the volatile situation between Israel and the Palestinians? And why do we even care?
Sarsour, a Palestinian activist, is the darling of the left, the feminist movement and the BDS movement. Information she spreads is taken at face value; no one usually bothers to check the facts.
Because of this, her comments matter. One of her latest disingenuous Facebook posts shows Muslims in Israel praying on the street because, in Sarsour’s words, they have been (#1 deception) “denied access to pray at Al Aqsa Mosque in their own homeland.”
The “Palestinian” territories have a culture of hatred and the glorification of violence, all in the name of Islam and in accord with its teachings. This is likely another manifestation of the rage that “Palestinian” leaders are exhorting their people to work up over the Israelis’ decision to put metal detectors at the Temple Mount. Resisting jihad terror is portrayed as an unpardonable insult, and more jihad terror ensues.
The State Department is facing harsh criticism for claiming in an official report that Israel is to blame for terrorism attacks committed by Palestinians and accusing the Jewish state of being largely responsible for an impasse in peace negotiations, according to a leading member of Congress who is calling on the State Department to correct its “inaccurate and harmful” characterization of Israel.
Three Palestinians were reported killed and over 200 were wounded in clashes with Israeli security forces in Jerusalem and the West Bank as Palestinian leaders urged a day of protest purportedly against Israel’s decision to put metal detectors at entrances to the 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.
Although Europe claims to respect human rights and the rights of peoples, it has been a party to violating the most essential right of the Jewish people: the recognition of its existence for more than 3,000 years, and the anchoring of this existence to its sacred monuments. Worse, Europe does so in the name of a people fictitiously invented less than 50 years ago. No serious scholar can find any trace of a “Palestinian people” before the 1960s. Europe has apparently been all too happy to accept lies.
PA official Laila Ghannam, the District Governor of Ramallah and El-Bireh, praised the “Martyrdom-death” of a 17-year-old terrorist who was shot and killed while throwing Molotov cocktails at Jewish civilians.
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.
Dozens of Palestinian worshippers Monday prayed in the alleys of the Old City of Jerusalem leading to Al Aqsa Mosque after they refused to enter the Muslim holy place going through metal detector gates recently placed at the mosque entrances by Israeli police.
Fatah Central Committee member Jamal Muhaisen said at the mourning tent: “On behalf of President Abu Mazen and members of the Fatah Central Committee and Revolutionary Council, we extend our sincere condolences for the death of the fighter Muhammad Jibrin, who was deliberately killed by the occupation forces without any reason.”
