Sheikh Salah: Netanyahu building Third Temple

The last time we saw Sheikh Raed Salah, he was claiming that Israel is building a subway to the Temple Mount.

He also constantly tells anyone willing to listen that the Jews are building tunnels under the Temple Mount, building synagogues on top of it, and doing other dastardly deeds to destroy the Al Aqsa mosque and Dome of the Rock. He'll make anything up as long as (a) he gets headlines, and (b) gullible Muslims will believe him.

Now,he is saying that Binyomin Netanyahu is ready to build the Third Temple on the Temple Mount.
Sheikh Raed Salah, leader of the Islamic Movement's northern branch, spoke Wednesday afternoon in front of Muslim students at Haifa University and warned them that Benjamin Netanyahu was intending on completing his plan to gain control of the Temple Mount, which he said the prime minister had tried to do during his first tenure.

The Islamic leader, who was invited to speak by the IQRAA students' organization affiliated with his movement, briefed the students on the history of his movement and on the criminal proceedings taken against him and his people several years ago.

He noted that he had rejected the Shin Bet's offers to agree to concessions in Jerusalem. "We love life, our families, our homes and our children, but if they suggest that we give up our principles and holy sites, we would rather die and we will welcome death."

Salah claimed that the government continued constantly to dig tunnels under the Temple Mount and the al-Aqsa Mosque, and that Netanyahu was planning to complete during his current term what he did not complete during his first one – "to dig additional tunnels under al-Aqsa and rebuild the Temple on the Temple Mount."

The Muslim students responded by chanting, "Allahu Akbar" (God is great).
That's funny - if I heard that Netanyahu was building the Third Temple on the Temple Mount, I'd also say "God is great."
