Arabs Call on Masses To Challenge Israel at Temple Mount

( The Arab world has called on masses to reach the Temple Mount as the Arab world accuses Israel of disguising work at the site as a ruse to damage mosques. Digging is taking place at the site, where archaeologists are excavating to prepare for new foundations for a bridge at the Mugrabi Gate, the only point where Jews are allowed to enter the holy site.

Arab countries have pounced on the work to back their claims that Israel is trying to sabotage mosques at the Temple Mount, which Muslims increasingly claim never belonged to the Jews and that the First and Second Temples never were existed.

"Israel, who today is playing with fire when it touches Al-Aksa, knows the consequences of this playing with fire," Hamas leader Khaled Marshal warned.

Jordan's King Abdullah II denounced what he called Israeli attempts "to change the Islamic stamp" of the Al-Aqsa mosque on the Temple Mount. He condemned the latest Israeli plan to "demolish the Mugrabi Gate road, which is close to the Western Wall of the Al-Aqsa mosque and forms an integral part of the shrine."

The Jordanian Royal Committee for Jerusalem Affairs issued a statement urging the international community to "intervene immediately to stop the dangerous Israeli practices."

Labor, Meretz MKs Call for Halt to Work at Temple Mount

( Labor Knesset Member Colette Avital (Labor) and Meretz chairman MK Yossi Beilin have called on the government to order a halt to archaeological work at the Temple Mount. The work is preparatory in order to erect columns for a new foot bridge at the holy site.

MK Avital said the work is unnecessary, and MK Beilin charged the government with irresponsibility in carrying out the project, which he stated could cause a disaster. Arab leaders have called on masses to demonstrate at the Temple Mount, and police have deployed extra forces to prevent violence.
