At least 184 violations by Israeli authorities against the holy sites in East Jerusalem and Hebron were reported in the recent two months…mainly…provocative visits by extremist Jewish settlers [and] a forcible shutdown of a major gate and unsubstantiated prevention of the call for prayer.
Other violations in Jerusalem also included the approval of the creation of a Jewish synagogue in Jerusalem’s Old City neighborhood, in addition to approving the construction of a museum at the site of Ma’man Allah cemetery near al-Aqsa Mosque.
Moreover, he gets a bit fancible:
Last April, Al-Aqsa Foundation for Endowment and Heritage warned of Israeli bids advised by the so-called Temple Mount groups to officially turn the historical Tankaziya School, located within al-Aqsa Mosque compound, into a Jewish synagogue. The school was turned into a synagogue for enlisted soldiers and a military site for the Israel Border Police gendarmerie in 1969.
That building is the Madrasa al-Tankiziya (the ‘Mahkamah’) building, which overlooks the Temple Mount and is located near the Chain Gate and is the base for the Border Police. And yes, there is a small synagogue therein, established by Rabbi Shlomo Goren.
The “bids” may actually refer to my suggestion to turn the colonnaded section under the building into a prayer hall. I am honored.
But the bottom line is why does not the government of Israel uphold the law? Is that too fancible a wish?
