Arabs stirring up trouble over Mughrabi Gate

In an earlier post, I noted that the City of Jerusalem has condemned the ugly wooden ramp that leads from the Western Wall plaza to the Temple Mount, and has ordered that it be destroyed within one month. The Arabs are eager to make this an international issue again. This is from the official 'Palestinian' WAFA service.
The al-Aqsa Foundation for Waqf and Heritage in Jerusalem Wednesday warned of dangerous repercussions if the Israeli municipality proceeds to demolish Magharbe Gate passage to al-Aqsa Mosque in Jerusalem’s Old City.

If implemented, it said, it would lead to the demolition of a section of the Mosque itself.

The Foundation called in a press release on the Arab and Islamic world to take immediate action to save al-Aqsa mosque from the Israeli occupation plans.

It said the Israeli decision to demolish the passage, which is in the shape of a wooden overpass that connects the yard of the Western Wall below to al-Aqsa compound, clearly shows Israeli determination to demolish a section of the mosque rather than what it claims that it is simply demolishing a temporary wooden bridge.

“We have repeatedly unveiled through maps, documents and pictures the dimension of the Israeli plan to demolish Magharbe Gate and to build another one in its place as it aims to build a fortified bridge for military reasons to facilitate large scale incursions of fully equipped Israeli forces, settlers and Jewish groups into the Mosque area,” it said.
Read the whole thing.

The only party that is digging underneath the mosque is the Waqf, which destabilized it about fifteen years ago by building a massive auxiliary mosque in the area known as Solomon's stables.

Obviously, there are other ways to access the Temple Mount. The ramp will be replaced by something more solid and the mosque will not be destroyed. But the 'Palestinians' would rather wait for a lot of people to be killed by the ramp's collapse so that they can invent another blood libel.

What could go wrong?
