Yisrael Medad
I am a resident of Shiloh, with my wife and children, and now grandchildren, since 1981, having come on Aliyah in 1970. I have served in a volunteer capacity as a Yesha Council spokesperson, twice a member of Amana's secretariat, Benjamin Regional Council plenum member and mayor of Shiloh. I was a parliamentary aide for Geula Cohen and two other MKs, an advisor to a Minister, vice-chairman and executive director of Israel's Media Watch and currently, am Information and Content Resource coordinator for the Begin Heritage Center.

It has been reported:

The Jordan Engineers Association (JEA) said that the temporal and spatial partitioning of al-Aqsa Mosque is no less important than the burning of the mosque, highlighting that the temporal division has already become a reality.  The union said in a statement on Saturday marking the anniversary of the burning of al-Aqsa Mosque at the hands of a Jewish fanatic that the Jordanian government should exercise its jurisdiction over al-Aqsa Mosque.

But, it seems, these are "Islamists":-

Islamists on Friday commemorated the 45th anniversary of the arson attack on Al Aqsa Mosque.

Participants, who included representatives from the Muslim Brotherhood as well as poets, said the event is held every year to remind the public of the importance of Al Aqsa Mosque and its religious significance to Muslims, the Jordan News Agency, Petra, reported.

And to where did the "engineers" go?

Flags they fly:

That same Petra site informs us

Dozens of Jewish settlers, led by radical Rabbi Yehuda Glick, on Sunday stormed the Al-Aqsa Mosque compound from Al-Magarbah Gate in occupied Jerusalem.

The settlers roamed the Mosque yards under the protection of Israeli soldiers and policemen, while conducting provocative tours, but worshippers expelled extremist rabbi Glick from the Compound with the assistance of Palestinians and students.  Dozens of Israeli settlers and foreign tourists crowded outside Al-Magarbah Gate with additional groups, waiting to storm the Mosque.

So, what's the difference, based on the language used between 'moderates' and 'Islamists' in Jordan?  A country with which Israel signed a peace treaty twenty years ago.

If there is an destruction at the site, any violation of laws, any discrimination, any violence it is all Muslim, directed against Jews, our history, our national and historic legacy and our basic humand rights, not to mention opportunities of coexistence.

Here is a calendar of the Jewish holidays in the month of Tishrei --- in Arabic so that Mislims can be properly alerted to interfere with Jews visiting, and to act provocatively:

Can we expect that Israel's government will call in the Jordanian ambassador and explain to him in no uncertain terms that this type of activity in Jordan is an infraction of the 1994 Peace Treaty which includes this:



Each party will provide freedom of access to places of religious and historical significance...The Parties will act together to promote interfaith relations among the three monotheistic religions, with the aim of working towards religious understanding, moral commitment, freedom of religious worship, and tolerance and peace.

Anyone in the Government want to respond?
