BEIRUT, LEBANON (3:15 A.M.) – Israelis clashed with Palestinian worshippers on Temple Mount in East Jerusalem on Sunday morning following reported provocation in the lead up to an emotional week in the Holy Land.

The clashes allegedly started when around 1,000 Israelis moved towards Temple Mount, with a minority carrying Star of David flags and chanting Jewish songs, according to local reports.

Others began praying in the area, in contravention of a ban on non-Muslims praying in the al-Aqsa Mosque’s grounds, although visitors from other religions are permitted.

Sunday is known as ‘Jerusalem Day,’ the anniversary of when Israel took control of the Old City and East Jerusalem in 1967.

Temple Mount is the holiest site in Judaism and the third-holiest site in Islam. High-profile visits by Israeli officials and rumours of changes to the status quo have also preceded outbursts of violence.

The REAL Location of Solomon’s Temple is in the City of David, near not on Jerusalem’s Temple Mount. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yTSCQgZirts The Temple Mount has no well… So how can there have been a Jewish temple at this place? The Quibla of the al-Aqsa Mosque points to Petra not to Mecca. Like all the mosques that still survive from this early period. https://youtu.be/jOxZl60MyqE?t=1822 So how can it be Muslim? The Mosque was expanded by Abd al-Malik who also build the Dome of the Rock. And there he left his statement of faith carved in Kufic script. According to Luxenberg he believes in… Read more »

I promise a free pass to Jesus when he’ll come to my brothel on the Temple Mount : with all the advertising he’d had made for me! I prefer installing the brothel in the Dome of the Rock al-Aqsa is really to ugly, but as there is room, we’ll install the studios, so we’ll produce Holy Fück P0rn! Prepare serious scandal with Muslims gangbanging a Jewish girl while Haredis will gangbang a Muslim woman. Actually, this is just a single idea : I would have fun of all bigots no mater their sect. Some were scandalised by Charlie Hebdo, well,… Read more »

Temple Mount is NOT the third-holiest site in Islam, it’s not even a holy site at all, not even Jerusalem as the city is not even quoted in Q’ran at all! Muhammad never went there! The site is so holy that in 19 years under Jordan rule, not a single pilgrimage was organised and not a single Arab VIP visited the site! This is nothing else than a propaganda tool directed at western public opinion. Enough of all these lies! We don’t buy them any more. Westerners faked buying these BS as long as Arabia had a near monopoly on… Read more »

The real Temple was in the City of David. You need a well for cleansing… And the Wailing Wall was part of a Roman castrum. Just look at the Temple mount from above. The Buraq could easily travel from the first (M)Becca (Petra), to Jerusalem. https://youtu.be/jOxZl60MyqE?t=1822

The Burak never existed, this was a dream…
And if ever I see a Burak, I like horse meat, .300 Winchester magnum will do the job!
Let me do mine and it’ll be a blow-job as I’ll open a brothel there and rename it the Temple Mount of Venus!
And there’ll be no jealousy between those sects, any one can have a good shag at the sëx-sect !
Can’t tell if there’ll be peace but there’ll be love!
