Jordan holds conference to deny Jewish rights in Jerusalem
Jordan is holding a conference that aims to ensure that Jews have no rights in Jerusalem.
From Jordan’s official Petra News Agency:
Deputizing for His Majesty King Abdullah II, HRH Prince Ghazi Bin Mohammad, the King’s Advisor for Religious and Cultural Affairs, on Monday opened “The Road to Jerusalem” Conference that is being attended by a number of Muslim and Christian religious scholars, parliamentarians and politicians from across the Arab and Muslim worlds.
Organised by the World Islamic Sciences and Education (WISE) University, the Lower House Palestine Committee and the Muslim World League, the conference will tackle topics such as the religious significance of Al Aqsa Mosque and other Muslim and Christians sites in Jerusalem, and ways in which the Arab and Muslim worlds and the international community can come to the aid of the occupied city.
The Rapporteur of the Higher Committee and spokesperson of the Conference, Deputy Yahia Al Saud, said in his opening remarks that the developments in Arab countries over the past few years and the so-called Arab Spring affected the Palestinian issue and led to an increase in Israeli arrogance and violations against the Palestinians in the West Bank.
He also highlighted efforts of His Majesty the King in defense of the Al Aqsa Mosque and called for Arab and Islamic support to confront the Israeli schemes.
Palestinian Awqaf Minister Mahmoud Al Habbash also made remarks in which he stressed the importance of the topics to be tackled during the conference, pointing to the historic and religious importance of Jerusalem.
He said that the Israeli occupation authorities allocated $4 billion this year to complete the Judaization of the holy city and urged Arabs and Muslims to confront the Israeli plans that target Islamic and Christian holy sites in the occupied city.
President of the Arab Parliament Ahmad Al Jarwan pointed to the agreement signed by Jordan and Palestine under which the Palestinian side “reaffirmed” the status of His Majesty King Abdullah as the custodian of the holy sites in Jerusalem. The agreement, he said, aimed to preserve the Arab identity of the holy city.
This conference, as is usual in the Arab and Muslim world, does not admit that Jews have any historic or religious attachment to Jerusalem. Which is ironic because their official English news reports call it by its Hebrew-derived name, not “Al Quds.”
Jordan, of course, is the country that destroyed scores of synagogues within days of taking control of Jerusalem’s Old City in 1948. It also stole gravestones from the ancient Jewish cemetery at the Mount of Olives and used them for latrines and to pave roads.
Now this enlightened country is demanding that Israel, which allows all religions to have free access to Jerusalem, to bring back the situation between 1948 and 1967 when the Old City was Judenrein.
Because, you see, the Jordanian hypocrites and antisemites are claiming that Jews are the ones who are dishonoring Jerusalem!
As I’ve pointed out before, the proof of Arab antisemitism isn’t finding lots and lots of newspaper articles about events like these that deny Jewish ties to Jerusalem, or that deny the Holocaust, or claim that Jews drink the blood of Gentiles.
The proof is that no Arabs are willing to protest them.
