Fatah and Israel allow Hamas broadcast from Temple Mount

For those of you who are waiting for Fatah to use that $7.4 billion in Western aid to combat Hamas and Islamic Jihad, please don't hold your breaths. What they really want is for the other two groups to love them. And so, when Israel eliminates terrorist leaders from Islamic Jihad - something you would think is also in Fatah's best interest - 'Palestinian' Prime Minister Salam Fayyad protests the 'crimes' against the 'Palestinian people.' And then he goes ahead and allows Hamas to broadcast from the Fatah-controlled Temple Mount. (The members of the Wakf, who control the Temple Mount, are appointed by the 'Palestinian Authority').
The Hamas terror group today broadcast live from the Temple Mount – Judaism's holiest site – and announced it would commence daily programming from the site while Israeli police banned all Jews and Christian from ascending the Mount.

Jewish Temple Mount groups had wanted to lead tours this morning, which marked the start of Jewish fast day of the Tenth of Tevet, mourning the First Temple's destruction and the siege placed on Jerusalem leading up to Temple's destruction during the reign of the Babylonian ruler Nebuchadnezzar.

"Our broadcast is a victory for the Al Aqsa Mosque, which is suffering from Judaization efforts imposed by the Zionist government. Broadcasting daily radio is a way to bring Al Aqsa to the Gaza Strip and challenge the siege imposed on us by the Zionist entity," said Rami Kaoud, a manager at Al Aqsa Radio, Hamas' official radio network.

Along with the Jewish fast day, today also marked the start of Muslim holiday of Ein ul-Adhaa, which commemorates the Islamic belief of Abraham's willingness to sacrifice his son Ishmael for Allah. According to Jewish and Christian tradition, Abraham nearly sacrificed his son Isaac, not Ishmael. [Once again, the Muslims have stolen someone else's narrative. This time, it's ours. CiJ


Hamas' Al Aqsa radio network routinely broadcasts sermons and speeches from Hamas leaders and Hamas-affiliated sheiks calling for the destruction of Israel and murder of Jews. It has been airing commercials the past few days promoting today's Temple Mount broadcast.

Asked if the police approved the Hamas broadcast, Jerusalem Police spokesman Shmulik Ben Ruby said, "As far as I know, the Israeli police is not engaged with this issue."

Spokesmen for both the Jerusalem Police and Israel's National Police said their respective departments were not aware of Hamas' planned broadcast until the publication of WND's story Monday.

A senior National Police source said if indeed Hamas was planning programming from the Temple Mount such a broadcast would be halted.

But today, Hamas' Al Aqsa Radio broadcast services from the Temple Mount from 5 a.m. Jerusalem time until 8:20 a.m. During the program, a Hamas official announced the group's station would exclusively broadcast services from the Al Aqsa Mosque every day.

Hamas would not say how it coordinated today's broadcast, but Palestinian security sources said the stream was fully coordinated with the Waqf, the Islamic custodians of the Temple Mount.

All broadcasts from the Mount must be approved by the Waqf, which guard the Muslim entrances to the Temple Mount along with the Israeli police. Broadcasts in theory must also be approved by the Israeli police, but cameramen and reporters routinely enter the site from Muslim gates to broadcast without prior police approval as long as Waqf agents allow the entry.

While Israel did not act to halt today's Hamas broadcasts, it barred all non-Muslims from ascending the Mount for the rest of the week.
Har HaBayit b'Yadeinu (The Temple Mount is in our hands), eh?
