Like clockwork, whenever Arab leaders want to get some attention and incite some bigoted hatred, they will accuse Jews of trying to attack and destroy the "Al Aqsa Mosque", the Temple Mount in Jerusalem and the site of the two Jewish Temples.

Let's look at a couple of the recent hysterical press releases and the "evidence" of an imminent attack that was behind them:

The first one was when Israel's Supreme Court allowed a Jewish group to peacefully visit the Temple Mount on Tisha B'Av, something which has been allowed many times in the past without incident:
Palestinian Minister of Information Yousef Rezqah on Wednesday condemned the Israeli Supreme Court's ruling to grant Jewish extremists' entry to the Holy Al-Aqsa Mosque on Thursday.

Rezqah condemned the media campaigns executed by Jewish extremists, which threaten to invade and attack Al-Aqsa Mosque, holding the Israeli government responsible for such court ruling.

He accused the Israeli authorities of keeping their eyes closed against extremists' attempts to attack the mosque, noting that the ruling is issued during a period of time that coincides an Israeli war against the Palestinians and Lebanese people and the anniversary of the Islamic Al-Isra' and Al-Me'raj event.

A number of Palestinian sides warned of allowing Jewish extremists entry into Al-Aqsa Mosque, holding the Israeli government responsible for the results of such act.

Palestine Scholars League also warned the Israeli occupation government of allowing Jewish extremists from attacking the mosque.

The league called on all Palestinians to gather at the mosque and prevent the extremist attack.

The Fatah Movement also called on all Palestinians to take action and protect Al-Aqsa Mosque from the Jewish extremists' invasion, noting that the court ruling shows the Israeli bad intention towards Al-Aqsa Mosque and Islamic properties.
Yes, peacefully visiting a site is, in Islamic parlance, an "attack" and an "invasion."

But even more disturbing is that after the court ruling, the Israeli police prohibited Jews from entering the Temple Mount anyway, allowing Islamic bigots to effectively veto any act they consider offensive, which means any behavior they feel like.

More recently comes this nonsensical press release from the Muslim World Association via the Bahraini News Agency:
Makkah. Aug. 22 (BNA) The Muslim World League (MWL) has drawn the attention of the international community to the importance of Al Aqsa Mosque, and warned against the Zionist plots to demolish the Mosque which has a great value in the hearts of the muslims.

Notice how the news agency has to mention that the mosque is important to Muslims. One would think that they would know that already.

So what was the event that caused Muslims to panic?
A statement issued here today by the MWL's Secretary General Dr Abdullah Al-Turki said setting Al-Aqsa mosque on fire by the terrorist and extremist Mickel Rohan on August 29, 1969, had demonstrated the plots hatched by the Zionists to demolish the mosque for building the alleged Skeleton in its place. Dr. Al-Turki drew attention to the menace of the Zionist plots, and said they are terror plots which aim at fomenting sedition and Provocation against 1.5 billion Muslims in the world.
Ah. A Christian fundamentalist who set fire to the mosque 37 years ago is causing a panicked warning now by the head of the Muslim World League about Jews building something called an alleged Skeleton.

It seems that when Muslims want to incite hate against Jews, facts just get in the way.
