Seems like the new Arab ploy is to emphasize the importance of Jerusalem to the Falacistinians. If they just bitch and moan long enough and loudly enough the world will think that Jerusalem belongs to the Falacstinians and not the Jews. And that if Arab/Muslim leaders push enough buttons they can create an incident to spark the third intifada, which Mahmoud Abbas threatened in June would take place if the Jews were to do something as outrageous as take a nationalist stand on its sovereignty over its lands, including Jerusalem.
Jordan's contribution comes in the form of a statement from the Jordanian ambassador to the US, Zeid Ra'ad Zeid al-Hussein (I think the second Zeid is for emphasis), to the Washington Times that Jerusalem is a powder keg that could be set off by Jewish extremists' attacks on Muslim holy places. This is the dressing sprinkled over what I am calling the "Jerusalem Agenda," which involves maximizing the propaganda campaign that seeks to delegitimate the role of the Jerusalem in Jewish life and history, while simultaneously making it appear to be more holy to Muslims than Mecca.
It's not a wholly irrational plan considering that the world seems to accept every story the Arabs tell as truth, whether it is the made up fairy tale of Palestinian nationalism, or that IDF soldiers are harvesting Arab organs.
So, while the Arabs are filling wheelbarrows with rocks to throw at Jewish worshippers we're supposed to believe that it is Jewish extremists that are the threat, just as the world is supposed to believe that there is no Jewish connection to Jerusalem, despite the overwhelming physical evidence, and the fact that it is mentioned in the Tanach, the Hebrew Bible, more than 800 times, but only mentioned in the Koran zero times.
Watch the video. He seems so concerned doesn't he? Oh yes, there will be a toxic religious atmosphere because of the Jews...I think if you watch carefully you can actually see crap coming out of his mouth...and of course the solution is to get the Jews out of Jerusalem.
So while Zeid says that the Netanyahu government's determination to continue building in Jerusalem will end negotiations, this fabled attack by Jewish extremists will be the "show stopper." So when the third intifada is launched, expect to hear from the Arab media that it was Jewish extremists attacking Muslim holy sites that caused it. We certainly wouldn't want the Arabs inciting violence against Jews to be seen as the problem. That would be dealing with reality, and very few in the international community seem interested in dealing with that.
