  • Elder of Ziyon

As Jews celebrated the second night of Chanukah at the Western Wall, Arabic language sites continue to report about in in a way meant to incite Arabs to attack Jews.

A number of news sites reported on Chanukah celebrations at the Kotel this way:

A few members of the extremist Jewish "temple" groups gathered yesterday evening for prayer, dancing at the door of the tribes, and lit the candlestick of the Hanukkah festival celebrated by the Jews .

The celebrants also drank alcohol at the thresholds of the Al-Aqsa Mosque, a provocation to the feelings of Palestinian Muslims and Christians, and prayed prayers hoping to rebuild the temple again . 
On Tuesday, Jewish extremists are expected to continue prayers at the gates of the Al-Aqsa Mosque, which they pledged at the start of their provocative prayers.
I believe that the reference to the "door of the tribes" was a celebration at the "little Kotel," the Kotel HaKatan north of the popular Western Wall.

But it is reference to drinking wine at the "thresholds of Al Aqsa Mosque" and praying for the Temple to be rebuilt that is meant to start anti-Jewish riots in the streets.

Because there are wine and prayers to rebuild the Temple in every synagogue every week of the year. There is obviously nothing "provocative" about it. Jewish prayers and rituals are much older than Islam is.

(It is also instructive that the article in Masrawy, an Egyptian paper, says that Arab Christians are also "provoked" by Jews drinking wine. Wine is forbidden under Islam but not Christianity, but Arab Muslims are certain that their fellow Christian Arabs will remain in lockstep in their hate of Jews and Israel.)

Meanwhile, here is how the official Palestinian Wafa news agency reports on Jews ascending to the Temple Mount on Chanukah in English:

Jewish fanatics led by Israeli member of parliament Yehuda Klick intensified on Monday provocative tours of Al-Aqsa Mosque in Jerusalem, Islam’s third  holiest site, as they marked the start of the Jewish lights holiday, Hanouka, according to Muslim officials.

They said groups of 40 Jewish fanatics each were allowed by Israeli police into the Muslim compound since the start of the morning visit hours for non-Muslims.

The extremist groups have encouraged their members to ascend to the Mosque during this holiday, as they do in every other Jewish holiday, in order to assert their presence with a goal to one day take it over and turn it into a Jewish temple.

Palestinian and Muslim officials have warned of outbreak of a religious strife if any changes are introduced to the Muslim holy compound.
This is all pure, official incitement to violence, because the entire story is Jews peacefully visiting the site during the very limited number of visiting hours available to non-Muslims that happen every day except Friday and Saturdays.

We have lots of ideas, but we need more resources to be even more effective. Please donate today to help get the message out and to help defend Israel.
