CHUTZPAH: Jordan Tells Israel To ‘End Provocations And Violations’ On Har Habayis

6

The Jordanian Foreign Ministry called on Israel to “respect the sanctity” of the Al-Aqsa Mosque in Jerusalem and end “all provocations and violations there.”

According to Jordan’s Petra News Agency, Foreign Ministry spokesperson Deifallah al-Fayez conveyed the message of protest through diplomatic channels, condemning what it called “Israeli violations” on the Har Habayis, by having allowed Jews “to storm the mosque” on Tisha B’Av last week.

Hundreds of Jews visited the Har Habayis to mark the fast day commemorating the destruction of the two Batei Mikdash that once stood on the site.

Al-Fayez also said that the Har Habayis, where the Al-Aqsa Mosque is located, is “a place of worship for Muslims only.” He called on the international community to end these so-called “Israeli violations.”

The Har Habayis has been under the day-to-day control of the Muslim Waqf religious authorities and overseen by the Jordanian government since the 1967 Six-Day War with Israel retaining security control of Judaism’s holiest site. The Waqf forbids Jews from praying on the site, which is a source of ongoing controversy between Israel and the Palestinians, and between Israel and Jordan.

  1. Well ! The Punishment for this avairah is karais! pretty severe !
    Maybe Jordan is right in calling us out for encouraging this very severe sin!

  2. Indeed, what are Israelis doing on Har Habayis?! Not only does the Waqf forbid Jews from praying on the site, our own Torah forbids us from praying there until a red heifer is found and slaughtered in accordance with the necessary rituals.

  3. (This reply is hereby stated after the first 3 have been posted!)
    Indeed, they are correct! It is forbidden for us Jews to ascend the Har Habayit until the time when the red heifer is offered and its rituals are performed. But how dare the Jordanians open their mouths in such a blasphemous manner! Are they about changing recorded history? In 1967 after the Six Day War it was Israel who captured it and offered the Jordanians the privilege of up-keeping the mosque and thus our newly captured Har Habayit.
    It’s like the adage Don’t Bite The Hand Who Feeds You! What a Hutzpah for them to “adminsh” and warn in such a disgraceful manner!

  4. Send all the terrorist palestinians back to their own state – Jordan, which is palestine and tell them to shut their mouth about any part of Israel. Arabs don’t belong in Israel. They have 22 of their own arab countries. Go home arabs.
