IT'S A SHOWDOWN IN JERUSALEM.
THE PALESTINIAN AUTHORITY IS TRYING TO USURP KING ABDULLAH'S RIGHT TO CONTROL OF THE DOME OF THE ROCK, AL AQSA MOSQUE.
BEFORE CLUELESS JOHN KERRY OFFERED ANYTHING TO STOP THE NEW VIOLENCE ATOP THE JERUSALEM TEMPLE MOUNT, JORDAN'S KING ABDULLAH SUGGESTED INSTALLING SECURITY CAMERAS TO SHOW THE WORLD WHAT WAS REALLY GOING ON.
IF HE IMAGINED ISRAEL WAS "UP TO NO GOOD", LOOKS LIKE HE WAS WRONG, AS ISRAEL HEARTILY AND QUICKLY AGREED TO THAT.
WHEN KERRY PUT IT TO THE PALESTINIAN AUTHORITY (P.A.) THEY WENT BERSERK AND SCREAMED NO.
NO, IT WAS A TRAP, THEY SAID, TO MAKE MUSLIMS LOOK BAD, A TRAP TO ARREST MUSLIMS FOR DEFENDING THEIR MOSQUE.
PA Foreign Minister Riad al-Malki and other officials in Ramallah expressed concern that Israel would use the cameras to “arrest Palestinians under the pretext of incitement.”
FUNNY, THE JORDANIAN KING IS MUSLIM AND HE DIDN'T THINK SO AND HAS EXPRESSED OUTRAGE AT THE STANCE THE P.A. HAS TAKEN.
THE JORDANIAN NEWS MEDIA, AL-GHAD WROTE A SCATHING INDICTMENT AGAINST MALKI.
"Maliki's comments are serious. the cameras are essentially a Jordanian suggestion.
When he described them as a trap, it seems to the Palestinians and Arab public opinion, and possibly to Jordan as well, as if Jordan is a setting up this trap..."
THE JORDANIAN ANGER DID NOT STOP THERE!
Jordanian politicians and columnists have voiced outrage over the stance of the PA, and have dubbed it harmful to Palestinian and Islamic interests.
