The Israeli government, at the highest levels, is engaged in a cover-up of the systematic Muslim destruction of Jewish Biblical archaeology at the site of the Temple in Jerusalem.
The Waqf, the Muslim Temple Mount authority, has been bulldozing and wrecking the Jewish Temple as described in the Bible, attempting to eliminate any evidence of Jewish presence before the Muslims conquered the place.
The Muslim tradition, based on the verses in the Koran, specifically teaches them to tear down churches and synagogues when they conquer an area. Then they are instructed to build a mosque on the same site to show dominion of the Muslim religion. This is the thinking about the 911 Mosque in NYC at Ground Zero. In their twisted minds, this symbolizes that they won and that this is now sacred ground for Muslims and their fellow-travelers.
It is over two months since State Comptroller Micha Lindenstrauss completed his report on excavations at the Temple Mount in Jerusalem – yet the Knesset will only discuss his findings this week, giving rise to charges that the government tried to suppress the controversial document.
The report has not yet been published but Knesset sources who have seen it say it contents are so sensitive that they could spark riots once revealed.
Because it demonstrates beyond doubt that the Israeli government is covering up the Muslim destruction of Biblical Jewish holy objects and archaeological sites.
Imagine what would happen if the Jews did this to Muslim stuff?
There would be riots all over the Muslim world.
But when the Muslim desecrate the most holy site in Judaism the Israeli government is terrified to make this public.
Any digging at the site in the heart of Jerusalem’s Old City is potentially explosive. In 1996 Benjaim Netanyahu, then in his first term as prime minister, ordered the opening of a tunnel beneath the Western Wall, sparking riots in which 80 people were killed.
In 2000 Ariel Sharon, then leader of the opposition, provoked Arab outrage when he ascended the mount – often cited as the event that ignited the second intifada, or Palestinian uprising.
But while any controversy at the holy site carries the danger of violence, some members of the Knesset subcommittee due to discuss the findings say they have been suppressed to mask the shortcomings of government bodies, rather then because of security concerns.
Lindenstrauss’s report is expected to point the finger at government bodies, as well as the Waqf, in failing to monitor work on the site. The national Antiquities Authority, the police the Prime Minister’s Office, the Attorney General and the Jerusalem municipality are all expected to come under fire.
The Comptroller will conclude the Antiquities Authority and the municipality were effectively evicted from the Temple Mount after the 1996 disturbances, leaving supervision of development work in the hands of the police, which was unequipped for the task.
Police have so far failed to open to a single file on destruction of antiquities.
The Israeli government is hiding its complicity in one of the most horrible scandals in Jewish history and it is happening on the most holy Jewish site in the world.
