‘Israel planning new Jewish temple near al-Aqsa Mosque’

Press TV – April 11, 2014

Israeli officials have unveiled the model of a Jewish temple near the al-Aqsa Mosque Compound in East al-Quds (Jerusalem).

Palestinian activists say the model of the so-called third Jewish temple has a big hall and can accommodate hundreds of visitors each day.

Israeli authorities hope the project could attract tens of thousands of local and foreign tourists every year.

The al-Aqsa Foundation for Endowment and heritage says the move is a direct threat to the mosque.

The organization argues that the project is aimed at building enough support to make a Jewish temple on al-Aqsa site.

Palestinian groups have already warned of large-scale Israeli excavations near al-Aqsa’s southern gate.

On February 25, the Israeli parliament, Knesset, discussed a plan to annex al-Aqsa Mosque Compound.

The Organization of Islamic Cooperation has condemned the debate as a “dangerous escalation,” calling it part of Israel’s goal to “Judaize Jerusalem.”

The Israeli Knesset is set to discuss a proposal later this week to place the so-called Temple Mount, where Al-Aqsa Mosque is located, under Israeli sovereignty.

Palestinians have denounced the plan as desecration. They say it is part of the Israeli regime’s ongoing attempts to distort Arab and Islamic history.

Over the past decades, Israel has tried to change the demographic makeup of al-Quds by constructing illegal settlements, destroying historical sites and expelling the local Palestinian population.

  1. The Gentlemen who spoke about the role of the Jew, was wonderful, he enforced what I thought all along. I wish to God he was in charge and not Netenyahoo, I always believed and knew that the jews got along with the muslims and the palestines and the christians, prior to the zionist jews out of Europe. God forgive the USA and Europe for introducting Zionist in a region that did not deserve it. I will no longer feel disgusted with all Jews and will now say, that it’s the Zionist Jews who are the destroyers and the devils among us. I pray to God and his son Jesues that they will be destroyed once and for all.
