UNSC to debate on Israel’s Judaization of al-Quds

Rehmat

United Nations Security Council (UNSC) is holding an emergency meeting on Wednesday at the request of Kingdom of Jordan to debate Israel’s latest plan to build 1,060 new illegal Jewish houses in al-Quds (East Jerusalem) near the so-called Temple Mount (Wailing Wall).

President of the Palestinian National Unity Government Mahmoud Abbas, a USraeli agent, also submitted a request for an emergency UNSC session, calling for international efforts to help stop Israeli violations in East al-Quds as well as assaults by Israeli settlers on the al-Aqsa Mosque.

Israeli newspaper Ha’aretz reported on Tuesday that Benjamin Netanyahu has this new housing project on the table even before the recent 50-day war with Hamas. The fanatic Jews have been in the process of Judaization of al-Quds since it was captured from Jordan by Israeli army in June 1967.

Both the US and EU have condemned the illegal housing plan but judging the past UNSC record, such condemnation is not worth the ink on paper. Even if the majority of 15-member UNSC support Jordan’s complaint, the resolution would certainly get vetoed by one of the Israeli puppet UNSC veto powers (the US, Britain or France).

Bruce Katz, the co-president of Montreal-based Palestinian and Jewish Unity (PAJU), said in an interview with Iranian Press TV that Obama administration is blackmailing Mahmoud Abbas on behalf of the Zionist regime over UNSC debate.

Basically this discourse goes back to the original error that Palestinians made allowing the United States to become the unilateral broker in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. The threat to the remove the carrot of $ 700 million is nothing short of blackmail. It is a type of blackmail that has been used by Washington whenever Palestinians have attempted to challenged the Israeli regime, Katz said, adding, “That is something going on for decades.”

Here is some truth coming from horse’s mouth. Nicholas Saidel (Jewish) wrote at Israeli news website +972 0n January 3, 2014.

Jewish demand for prayer on the Temple Mount, and the push in the Knesset for new laws regarding the status of the Temple Mount, is a two-pronged strategy spearheaded by settler rabbis and their representatives and sympathizers in Israel’s right-wing coalition government, (especially in the Jewish Home party and Likud MK Moshe Feiglin). Many of the provocative calls to prayer are made by a messianic organization called the Temple Institute, whose mission is to rebuild the ancient Jewish Temple on the Temple Mount grounds – thereby destroying both the Dome of the Rock and Al-Aqsa Mosque,” Saidel said.

“It is worth noting that in challenging the status quo of the Temple Mount, these religious-Zionist rabbis and their congregants are also challenging traditional Jewish law concerning worship on the Temple Mount. A rabbinic decree on the issue, which since the pre-Israel time of Abraham Isaac Kook (1865–1935), who served as Chief Ashkenazi Rabbi of British Mandatory Palestine, proscribes Jewish visitation due to the possibility of the ritually impure walking upon, and thus desecrating, the Holy of Holies – a room housing the Ark of the Covenant where only the high priest may enter on Yom Kippur. This law was confirmed by Israel’s chief rabbinate in 1967 and again in 2013 after incidents involving Jewish prayer on the Temple Mount began to increase. It is illuminating that these settler rabbis will contravene halacha in order to fulfill their expansionist aspirations. Such prioritization of territorial acquisition at the expense of well-established religious law casts these rabbis’ character as apolitical religious figures merely seeking worshipping rights further into doubt,” Saidel added.
