Hezbollah Hails Palestinian Jihadi Operation in Al-Aqsa Mosque

Rabbi Ari Enkin

Riots also broke out in Jerusalem's Old City Sunday when Muslim worshipers blocked a road in protest of new metal detectors placed at the entrance gates to the Temple Mount.

Israeli forces closed the holy compound for two days following a shooting attack that left three Palestinians and two Israeli policemen dead on Friday.

"We will not allow the mosque to be used for terrorism, as the killers [of police officers Ha'il Satawi and Kamil Shnaan] did", Barkat said Wednesday following the second consecutive night of clashes between Arab residents in eastern Jerusalem and security forces.

Tanzim, the armed faction of Fatah, also announced that Friday prayers will be held in the centers of Palestinian cities and that the sermons be dedicated to the Al-Aqsa mosque and against the new security measures, Ynet reported.

A number of Palestinians suffered rubber bullet injuries, including former Jerusalem Mufti Sheikh Ikrima Sabri.

"We call for an end to all the Zionist measures and for the extremist government to take its hands off the blessed Al Aqsa mosque", it said. Abbas' office confirmed to CNN that the phone conversation took place.

The Council of the Arab League on Monday condemned Israel's decision to bar Palestinians from entering the al-Aqsa mosque in East Jerusalem.

Omar Kiswani, director of al-Aqsa Mosque, told reporters outside the site that "the closure, the occupation, and the prevention of the call for prayers are all unfair and unjust and constitute a violation of the United Nations resolutions and the worldwide agreements".

Muslim worshippers and the Muslim Waqf, which administers the site, have boycotted the Temple Mount over the new security measures.

Conflicts over the walled holy site, revered by Muslims and Jews, have repeatedly triggered Israeli-Palestinian confrontations. In Islam, the same structure is referred to as the Noble Sanctuary, with Al-Aqsa Mosque and Dome of the Rock as the third holiest site for Muslims.

Canada Fisherman Killed By Whale After Rescuing It From Net
Joe Howlett, who was killed Monday after disentangling a right whale from snow crab gear in the Gulf of St. LeBlanc added that any disentanglement attempt carries serious risks, and whales can be unpredictable.

After Friday's alleged attack, Israel closed off the area, preventing Friday prayers at the al-Aqsa Mosque for the first time in decades.

Israel blames Palestinian leaders for incitement to violence while the Palestinians charge Israel's military occupation and attempts to change the delicate status quo at the contested holy site as the factors behind the violent attacks.

So Israel reinstalled the metal detectors.

"Preserving security and stability in holy places is a Jordanian objective, but this can not be achieved by changing the historic status quo but through respecting it", said Safadi.

Several Israeli media agencies claimed Jews had been barred from the Temple Mount, but Israel Police spokesman Micky Rosenfeld told CBN News it was open to visitors all morning outside of the brief interlude.
