Spreading the rumor

Shaykh Salah from the Islamic Movement’s Northern Branch, that is active within Israel proper will not stop trying to spread hatred against Jews and to cause riots. Constantly he his claiming Israel plans to rebuild the Jewish Temple on Temple Mount and in order to do so wants to destroy al-Aqsa mosque and Haram al-Sharif. Or alternatively that the archaeological excavations are intended to destroy the Temple Mount.

The same you can here from the Palestinian media, the PA or the Mufti of Jerusalem. All pretend to know that Israel plans to destroy the Temple Mount.

All that has a long tradition. In 1929 the notorious Amin al-Husayni, Mufti of Jerusalem spread the rumor, that the Jews want to destroy the al-Aqsa mosque. He did so to stir anti-Jewish riots in which he succeeded. It led to riots against Jews all over the country in which 130 Jews were murdered in Hebron alone. The Jewish  community in Hebron dates back to biblical time.

  1. I saw an TV documentation over the Six-Days-War. There it was said, that a rabbi from the army (I´ve forgotten his name, sorry, but it was a prominent one) really wanted to do this (he thought the problems with the muslims concerning Jerusalem would be solved then), but Moshe Dayan made clear that this would be untolerable. He even ordered to take the Israeli flag (put there by victory-drunken soldiers) down from the mosque.
