Two Israeli policemen were murdered on the Temple Mount by Muslim Jihadists on Friday, and the Israel haters are exploiting the situation to further their propaganda. The Palestinian Authority, Arab MK’s, members of the Northern and Southern Branches of the Islamic Movement, and others are turning the murderous event on its head and creating in essence a blood libel by accusing Israel of denying Muslims the right to pray on the Mount. In reality, Israel is implementing basic security measures such as installing metal detectors. At the same time despite the attack, Israeli officials are adamant that the status quo on the Temple Mount will continue – in other words, Muslims will be allowed to pray there, while Jews will not. Disappointing indeed.
