Jordan Adds 75 New Guards at the Al Aqsa Mosque

reposted from The Jewish Press
December 12th, 2014

If the guards are replacing the current crew, who actually are rioters, then the Temple Mount will be safer for Jews.

by Tzvi Ben-Gedalyahu

Jordan has ordered the addition of 75 new Arab guards to be deployed at the Al Aqsa mosque on the Temple Mount, the Bethlehem-based Ma’an News Agency reported.

Omar al-Kiswani, director of the mosque site, told the news agency that the orders came from King Abdullah. Ten of the new guards are women, and six firefighters, five electricians and an engineer also have been employed.

King Abdullah’s order also follows the recent production of a Knesset bill to outlaw the “Mourabitoun” Muslim guards who often have participated in riots against Jews. The “Mourabitoun” are funded by Islamists and their job as “guards” is to keep the Temple Mount free of Jews.

Several dozen guards, or rioters, currently are stationed 24 hours day at the mosque site, and the addition of 75 is huge number, possibly double the current staff.

The beefing up of the number of guards comes weeks after almost daily riots and attempted attacks on Jews visiting the Temple Mount, an act that is enshrined in the Jordanian-Israeli peace treaty.

If the addition of 75 guards is to replace the “Mourabitoun,” then the Temple Mount might be a lot more peaceful place.

If not, then Israeli police will have their hands full the next time Muslims riot on the Temple Mount.

Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu sat down with King Abdullah last month in an effort to end the violent by fanatic Muslims who go berserk when they see Jews on the Temple Mount.
