Muslim World ERUPTS After Jews Flex Their Muscles on Jerusalem’s Temple Mount

By

The Islamic world is in an UPROAR after Israel dared to exercise its sovereignty after two Israeli police officers were murdered by terrorists at Jerusalem’s Temple Mount.

The only reason the attack succeeded is because Israel had previously acquiesced to Muslim demands that it remove metal detectors from the entrances to the Temple Mount.

Despite being Judaism’s holiest site, the Temple Mount is today occupied by several mosques and hosts massive weekly Muslim prayer services.

Taking advantage of Israel’s goodwill, three Muslims snuck guns into last Friday’s service.

After piously praying to Allah, they walked down from the Temple Mount and shot two Israeli officers dead.


Israel responded by closing the Temple Mount completely for the first time since 1969.

Muslims across the region said this was not acceptable, since Jews have no right to the Temple Mount in the first place.

The presence of Jews at the Temple Mount is “the root of all evil,” howled Ayman Odeh, the head of Israel’s main Arab party.

Neighboring Jordan, which administers religious affairs at the Temple Mount, demanded that the site be reopened immediately without regard for the heinous attack that had occurred.

Israel agreed to gradually reopen the Temple Mount to avoid a major Muslim outburst, but with increased security.

And, yes, the metal detectors were reinstalled.
