Arab Social Media Links Blazes To Mosque Loudspeaker Bill

5

The fires raging across Israel, about half of which are believed to be arson, have spurred a flurry of celebratory and inciting social media posts among Palestinians and the broader Arab world.

One post on Twitter and other social media platforms stated that “the Jews are praying for rain to put out the fires that are destroying the homes that they built on the sacred lands of occupied Palestine, and we are praying that 95 benzene will drop from the sky and make the fire stronger.”

The post was shared hundreds of times and received thousands of “likes,” as well as comments including, “The homes of Jews now look like the homes in Gaza and the West Bank after bombings from the occupation army.” Another comment read, “From the reports, it seems that some of our Arab brothers in occupied Palestine are behind the wave of fires. If this is indeed the situation, we support the heroes who did this and call on them to continue and on others to join the arson intifada.”

Social media user Saif Bilal, from the United Arab Emirates, shared photos of the fires and wrote, “Just a few days ago, they outlawed muezzins (loudspeakers) in mosques and now Israel’s cities are burning. Israeli citizens will sleep in the streets tonight. May Allah burn all the cities in Israel.”

The incitement also reached Arab media outlets, which have shared false reports, including claims that Israeli fire-and-rescue teams were helping Jewish residents and abandoning Arab residents. Another false report claimed that “some of the shocking images were of Jewish residents who fled the fires, leaving their children behind.” JNS.ORG

  1. First of all, no laws were passed, and second of all, all we want is to lower the insane volume, meaning at night. During the day, you don’t notice their (delete explicit) calls, but at 4 am, you do get disturbed. That’s what the law is for. However, thirdly, I don’t think Israel will be able to enforce the law in any case. Do you seriously think they’ll send the police or the army in “just” to lower the volume of the two minute racket? Does it really matter? It’s only the religious and the right-wingers, who are second-class citizens, who suffer. So let’s change the subject, folks. What’s for dinner?

  2. Now here you go again these peace loving arabs would never have done these fires but you dolts started up I am so glad to know that we are dealing with normal people who just have a slight anger management problem for a moment I thought we were dealing with psychotics or something

  3. Linking this to anything specific is their propaganda of justifying to the west social liberal why Palestinians continue to defile, harm and viciously kill Jews to satiate their bloodthirsty quest to murder without cause. It’s crazy how people don’t care

  4. There is something I don’t understand

    I am, of course, annoyed by the muezzin loudspeakers, but I understand that living in a city has many advantages, but also a few annoyances, such as loud music in the night, police sirens at all hours etc. And in every Arab country (I suppose that includes Israel) the mosques add to it. Those of us who really can’t sleep in a noisy place and don’t want to move to the countryside, buy and use earplugs.

    What I do not understand is, why airports, factories, train stations which serve a constructive purpose for everyone have very restrictive regulations, and on the other hand the loudspeakers are no problem.

    In my humble opinion there should be a decibel limit according to areas (industrial, residential, rural) and it should apply to everything, whether a disco or a mosque, a blacksmith’s shop or even a Shabbos siren, and it should be enforced; end of it.
