Jordan signed the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights in 1976. This covenant says

Everyone shall have the right to freedom of thought, conscience and religion. This right shall include freedom to have or to adopt a religion or belief of his choice, and freedom, either individually or in community with others and in public or private, to manifest his religion or belief in worship, observance, practice and teaching.
This covenant indicates pretty clearly that Jews have the right to practice their religion on the spot that is the undisputed holiest place in Judaism.

But Jordan has again engaged  in a rhetorical attack on Jews who peacefully visit their holiest site:

The Jordanian government on Thursday condemned the "storming of Jewish extremists" of the Temple Mount under the protection of Israeli police so they wouldn't be lynched.
.
The Minister for Media Affairs, government spokesman Mohammad Momanim, said in a press release that Jordan "strongly condemns these provocative acts that offend the sanctity of the holy place and the feelings of Muslims all over the world and we call on the Israeli authorities to stop it immediately."

So the "feelings of Muslims" are more important than Jews having the basic human right to visit their holiest spot - let alone pray there.

Momani urged the international community to pressure Israel to adhere to fictional obligations to keep Jews off the Mount.

He condemned and rejected the actions of "Jewish extremists" and said that their quiet strolls are a "mockery of the importance of continued calm and an abuse of international efforts to re-launch serious negotiations between the Israeli occupation and the Palestinians."

Here you can see those terrible "Jewish extremists" doing their storming this week. Prepare to be shocked at how provocative they are.


At the same time, Muslims erected a banner celebrating the founder of Hamas Sheikh Yassin on the Temple Mount.

No one condemned that.





We have lots of ideas, but we need more resources to be even more effective. Please donate today to help get the message out and to help defend Israel.
