Muslims upset at Kotel museum exhibit - in Brooklyn!

The Al Aqsa Foundation has a new outrage to seethe about - a replica of the Kotel in Brooklyn!


As the Jerusalem Post reports:
The Jewish Children's Museum in Brooklyn showcased a new exhibition to dignitaries and press on Thursday featuring an elaborately detailed replica of the Western Wall standing 12 feet tall and 24 feet wide.

The museum, which is affiliated with Chabad, commissioned a team of artisans to recreate a model of the ancient wall in the heart of Brooklyn to teach children about Judaism.

When the exhibition officially opens on April 1, visitors will be invited to follow the tradition at the Western Wall and place notes with their prayers and wishes in the replica’s cracks and crevices. The notes – or kvitels, as they are called in Yiddish – will be collected once a week by an official at the museum and flown to Israel where a Chabad rabbi will place them in the Western Wall.

The inciters at the Al Aqsa Foundation are livid:
Not only is the Israeli occupation destroying the heritage of of Islamic Jerusalem, using political tools and fraud, but these lies have even reached the United States. A Jewish organization recently established a three-dimensional exhibit attaching great importance to the Wailing Wall, that they call "Jewish", in a private museum in Brooklyn in New York City. The official opening ceremony was attended by the Israeli cabinet minister, and the wall will accept notes of people's wishes, which will be flown on El Al from Brooklyn, to be placed between the stones of the "Western Wall" in Jerusalem.

The Aqsa Foundation says that the establishment of this model which enshrines the myth of "Western Wall" and the templein the United States reflects a frantic effort by the occupation to build a temple at the expense of the Al Aqsa Mosque, stressing that the Wailing Wall is an integral part of the Al Aqsa Mosque, and linked to the Prophet Muhammad - peace be upon him - who tethered his animal Buraq in this wall, and that this wall and the square in front of it are purely Islamic; and that the claims of the occupation of a "Western Wall" are just lies and superstitions.
The article includes even more photos than the JPost story does!

And if you think that the Arabs know by now that the Al Aqsa Foundation is just a bunch of raving loons whose weekly predictions of impending Israeli destruction of the mosque have never panned out, you would be wrong.

This incitement is reproduced in dozens of other Arab media, as far away as Kuwait.
