  • Elder of Ziyon
It seems that some Jews decided to visit the holiest place on the planet on the holiest day of the year. There is no evidence that they brought weapons, or threatened anyone, or did anything provocative. Except, of course, wanting to be on sacred Jewish land that Muslims also claim.

Ma'an is screaming an "extremist gang attacks Al-Aqsa Mosque":
An Islamic charity is outraged that a "massive" group of Israeli settlers, rabbis and politicians attempted to break into the Al-Aqsa Mosque in Jerusalem early Thursday morning.

The Al-Aqsa Foundation for Islamic Waqf and Heritage claimed that Israeli extremists "carried out several failed attempts to break into the Al-Aqsa Mosque compound" on Thursday.

Extremists shouted anti-Muslim slogans while others performed religious rituals in the mosque's outside yard, Israeli police looking on and reportedly refusing to act.

Witnesses told members of the Palestinian press that rioters numbered "at least 100" and that among them was a member of the Israeli Knesset.
PNN's coverage is even less credible:
The Waqf has closed several sections of Al Aqsa Mosque since Wednesday in an attempt to shield the holy site from an onslaught of Jewish groups, including rabbis and Israeli politicians.

The Al Aqsa Foundation for the Preservation of Islamic Heritage issued a warning after receiving information that fundamentalists intended to descend on the Muslim holy site as is the yearly case during Yom Kippur.

Mass marches of Jews incurred into the grounds of Al-Haram Ash-Sharif under heavy guard in what some referred to as a “pilgrimage” while others said it was a “mission to stop the Al Aqsa Foundation.”

If religious Jews wanted to go to the Temple Mount on Yom Kippur, chances are they wouldn't say the reason was to "stop the Al Aqsa Foundation," This sounds like a completely made-up story by that group.

Not to mention that, unlike Muslims, religious Jews do not spend their holiest day trying to attack or incite others - they have more important things to worry about.

Note also that this story says that the Arabs began making moves on Wednesday, not Yom Kippur, which means that they were looking for something - anything - to happen that they could spin into an attack before it even happened.

And the lies become even more transparent:

Reports of incursions began coming in yesterday morning and the Waqf and Al Aqsa Foundation called for an increased presence inside the Mosque during Yom Kippur in order to protect the holy site from fundamentalists. This is historically the most difficult of Jewish holidays for Palestinians as racist attacks normally hit a yearly high.

A crew from the Al Aqsa Foundation took a place inside the Mosque beginning yesterday morning and has been monitoring the situation since. Beginning at 7:00 am Wednesday the first group of Jewish fundamentalists stormed Al Aqsa Mosque shouting they had come to “stop the Al Aqsa Foundation” while several began to perform Jewish religious rites. A group of 100 came with Rabbi and Israeli politician Uri Ariel. They attempted to storm the Mosque from Bab Al Maghrarbeh (Moroccans Gate) and engaged in a stand-off while shouting against the Foundation, reports from inside indicate.

In an interview with the Director of the Waqf in Jerusalem the Sheikh said, “We categorically reject the Israeli practices and those of the extremists who take it as their right to raid the holy mosque of Al Aqsa. We have submitted a strong protest to what has happened.”

Now they are saying that these "attacks" began on Wednesday morning!

Needless to say, there are no photographs of this "storming" even though it supposedly started on Wednesday, nothing from the MSM which would have swarmed all over to take pictures of these Jewish extremists, not a peep from Ha'aretz.

In other words, the only people who claim that this event happened in anything but the most peaceful manner are the people who consistently agitate and lie about Jewish plots to demolish the mosque and and build the Thurd Temple - in other words, persistent liars that reliably get quoted in the Arab press.
