Israel funded app destroys Al-Aqsa Mosque, builds temple in its place

App-al-Aqsa

An app has come out which allows visitors to place the Jewish Temple on top of Al-Aqsa Mosque

An Israeli tourist exhibit has launched an app which allows visitors to Jerusalem to virtually destroy Al-Aqsa Mosque and replace it with a Jewish temple, furthering the government’s stated commitment to dismantle the Muslim holy site.

The smartphone app is part of a government funded exhibition entitled “The Western Wall Experience”. When the app is pointed towards the mosque compound, it makes the Dome of the Rock disappear and replaces it with an image of a Jewish temple.

This allows visitors to “to pose for a souvenir photograph” in an imagined landscape where the Muslim holy sites have been destroyed.

The app is also sponsored by the Zionist group Aish Hatorah, whose founder Rabbi Steven Burg, tweeted pictures of how the temple appears on the app.

Burg is also the former director of the Simon Wiesenthal Centre, a Los Angeles-based Israel lobby group which is building a “Museum of Tolerance” on top of one of Jerusalem’s oldest Muslim cemetery, expected to open in 2018.

Israel has continued to perpetuate the myth of the existence of a Jewish temple at the site of Al-Aqsa Mosque, despite archaeological evidence to the contrary. It has used the search for the alleged temple to justify excavations under the Noble Sanctuary, weakening its foundations.

Government funded extremist groups, such as the Temple Movement, have already made detailed blueprints in preparation for the building of a Jewish temple. Hundreds of settlers regularly storm the Al-Aqsa compound in coordination with Israeli forces, performing ritualsand pledging to destroy the mosque, whilst Muslim worshippers are left outside.

Last month, Israel also announced that it would follow the US and prepare to leave the UN cultural body UNESCO, after complaining repeatedly of the organisation’s allegedly anti-Israeli resolutions. UNESCO has endorsed the Palestinian right to several sites in the occupied territories on multiple occasions, and last year voted in favour of a resolution that denied any connection between Al-Aqsa Mosque and Judaism.

Video of the Week New Clashes Erupt Between Israeli Security Forces, Muslim Worshippers

Temple Mount temporarily closed to Jewish visitors after clashes with police




The Temple Mount was temporarily closed to Jewish visitors on Wednesday at the order of Jerusalem District Commander Yoram Halevy after Jews broke visitation rules at the holy site, police said. The Jewish visitors were expelled from the compound for bringing sacred books to the Mount and trying to pray there. After one of the individuals was cautioned, another took out a holy book, and the group was expelled. Meanwhile, renewed clashes erupted between protesters and Israeli security forces near the Lion's Gate in the Old City, where police used stun grenades against the demonstrators. A regular dynamic has developed involving clashes between Palestinians and Israel Police over the past several days near the Lion's Gate. Dozens of Palestinians are present at the site on a regular basis, urging devotion to the Al-Aqsa Mosque on the Temple Mount and condemning Israel. During Muslim prayer times, particularly the midday and nighttime prayers, hundreds and sometimes even thousands have been gathering there.

There have been outbreaks of violence during these periods, including stone-throwing or physical confrontations with the police. In most of these incidents, the police have been using stun grenades and sponge-tipped bullets to disperse the crowds. In a number of cases, journalists in the area have also suffered violence at the hands of the police. On Tuesday, Hassan Shaalan, a reporter for the Ynet news website, was struck by a policeman even after he identified himself as a member of the press. A group of Jerusalem-based journalists released a statement of condemnation over the incident and called on the police to permit reporters to do their jobs. The Jerusalem Police responded: "This involved an incident that took place in the course of violent disturbances of the peace that occurred in Jerusalem while the police were acting to remove the demonstrators from the street after some of them refused to vacate. The forces working on the scene are under constant threat to their lives. http://www.haaretz.com/israel-news/1.802141
