Muslims Maintain Temple Mount Boycott, Despite Removal of Metal Detectors


You didn’t really think savages would be satiated did you? Terrorism works and they mean to extract more blood from the Jews.

Muslims got their way — Israeli authorities removed metal detectors that had been placed at the holy Temple Mount site in order to ward off acts of Islamic terrorism.

You didn’t really think this was about metal detectors, did you. Just another Islamic pretext for jihad and slaughter, as is their way.

As previously reported by Pamela Geller here, Israel made a remarkable concession to Palestinians by agreeing, on the heels of recent terror attacks, to take out its security system.

But Palestinians are still boycotting the site.

Leaders of the Islam faith told their followers to keep away from the area — to boycott — pending a full review of what, if any, other Israeli security measures might still be in place.

This is ridiculous. Israelis don’t have the right to protect themselves from terror attacks?

Israeli authorities remove metal detectors at the holy site.

One would think if there’s nothing to hide, there’s nothing to fear — no crime, no fould. Metal detectors aren’t exactly intrusive, in other words.

But Israeli authorities conceded and removed the security layer, anyway — a sizeable nod to Palestinian wishes. And now Palestinians’ response? They want more concessions.

From the Times of Israel:

The Waqf Islamic trust, which administers the site, said a decision to continue the boycott was pending a review of the new Israeli security arrangements there.

Ikrema Sabri, the head of the Supreme Islamic Committee in the city, said such a review might be completed later on Tuesday.

Muslim worshipers have stayed away from the sacred compound since Israel installed metal detectors there last week. Instead, they performed mass prayer protests outside the shrine, many of which devolved into clashes with Israeli security forces.

Earlier Tuesday, Israel’s security cabinet said it would replace the metal detectors with “advanced technologies,” referring reportedly to cameras that can detect hidden objects, but said the process could take up to six months.

Sabri told The Associated Press that “our position is that for now, nobody should enter” the shrine.

A Waqf official told The Times of Israel that it was continuing the boycott of the Temple Mount until all security measures added after the attack are removed.

The official noted that “the new high tech cameras” would not be accepted in place of the metal detectors.

On Tuesday morning, worshipers were remaining outside and police and Palestinian protesters were gearing up for another tense round of afternoon prayers in Jerusalem’s Old City.
