'Israel Playing with Fire if Hits Aksa'

reprinted from The Jerusalem Post
Feb. 4, 2007

Associated Press, The Jerusalem Post

Hamas leader-in-exile Khaled Mashaal lashed out at Israel on Sunday for an assault that allegedly took place Sunday on a road in Jerusalem's Old City called the Magharbeh, or Moroccans' Road.

The assault, he claimed, would make it easier for IDF troops to attack the revered Al-Aksa Mosque and other Islamic sites nearby in the future.

"Israel, who today is playing with fire when it touches Al-Aksa, knows the consequences of this playing with fire," Mashaal said.

He also called on Palestinians in Jerusalem and everywhere to launch a "comprehensive, popular and continuous action to defend the Al-Aksa Mosque and Jerusalem."

Mashaal warned Prime Minister Ehud Orlmert that this action would mimic the riots that erupted after former prime minister Ariel Sharon visited the Al-Aksa compound in 2000.

"Olmert must learn the lesson... the Israeli military and security command must learn the lesson of Sharon who sparked the intifada," Mashaal said.

( Jews will be allowed to visit the Temple Mount on Monday. The Mount will be open to visitors due to public pressure. The Temple Mount was closed to all non-Muslims on Sunday, and scores of Jews who had planned to go up to the Mount were unable to do so.

The Mount was closed on Sunday following Arab incitement. Muslim religious leaders claimed that Israel is attempting to topple the mosques located on the Mount, and called for their followers to come to a mass protest on Sunday morning. Police increased their forces in JerusalemÕs Old City in response, and forbade access to the Mount to Arab males under the age of forty-five. No violence was reported.
