Taking their misinterpretation of international law to new heights, the Arab League this week accused the Jews of Israel of violating the rules that govern global behavior by praying atop Jerusalem‘s Temple Mount.

The incident occurred on Sunday, when the head of the Temple Institute led a small group of Jewish tourists atop the Temple Mount. Israeli police at the site forbid non-Muslims from praying there or making any kind of outward religious gestures, such as kneeling or bowing.

But the Temple Institute told Israel National News that the group managed to hold a very brief prayer session without being detected.

After reading about the Jewish prayers at Judaism’s holiest site, Arab League Secretary-General Amr Moussa called them “a serious blow to the holiness of the site.”

Moussa insisted that under international law, Jews and Christians are forbidden from praying atop the Muslim-controlled Temple Mount

    Great post :)

    I’ve been blogging about this also – it’s a real travesty. But perfectly in keeping with how Jews, Christians and other ‘infidels’ have been treated by Muslims throughout history.

    Compare the situation in Jerusalem, where Muslims control the temple mount, to what happens in Mecca, where ALL NON MUSLIMS are banned, and where there are even specific ‘muslim only’ roads:

    Love your site, by the way! I’m a big believer in Jews and Christians standing together, both in support of our shared love for Israel and also for other shared values between our faiths:

    Shalom :)
