"Excavations" near the Ala Aqsa mosque in Jerusalem

Israel could replace the star-of-david on the flag with a bulldozer.

I agree with post # 1. And if you had any idea of the destruction of Jewish, and Christian, holy sites that Jordan over saw in the old city of Jerusalem before the six day war, you would be a little more careful, about that stupid bulldozer remark. Those of us that are educated know what the agenda here is, and you know what it is as well- but its all ways better to fan the flames of incitement, RIGHT !

Marilyn said...

The issue here is Israel's blatant disregard for the life and dignity of their neighbors. It is not a matter of what THEY say they are doing with the excavation; it is a matter of being up front with the locals and with respecting the religious concerns of the people who frequent the mosque to pray.

Maybe for a change Israel should involve the Muslim and Arab communities in the issues that concern those communities as opposed to ramming everything down their throats with racist contempt.

anyone who read this blog can feel the deep
antisemitic tone of this blogger.Israel is building a bridge that collapsed last year . the bridge is not in temple mount . Emily keep plugging your hatred to Israel.

Actually I agree with Anonymous this blogs is Anti-Semitic, and now they will say:"if someone criticize israel he is Anti-Semitic?..no, but if someone criticize israel all the time and even don't check the facts only spread his hate and think that israeli has nothing to do but to send poisoned bloons, and destroy holy places..its kind of Nazi Germany propaganda ,no matter what they do, they are animals without any feelings....and just for your knoweldge, Anti-Zionism it is racism too, so guess what? you are racist exctly like those evil zionists...

EDB said...

Wawaweewa!!!

Is that the verdict? This blog is "officially" anti-Semitic? I wonder what my grandmother would think, to hear that I am being labeled an "anti-Semite" by an entity that drags her family history through the mud... As a matter of interest, are anti-Zionist Jews anti-Semitic, too? Do you have a special categorization or blanket slur for those? Do tell. And don't tell me that Jews who oppose Israeli policies are "self-loathing", because they can't bask in the glory of Israel's military prowess and don't embrace Jewish chauvinism...

You take the balloon incident as some sort of absolvation of every crime Israel has actually committed. Rather than only making excuses for your own hysteria, why not consider that people in southern Lebanon perhaps have reason to fear a neighbor who most recently dropped tens of thousands of cluster bomb duds after a ceasefire had been agreed to...

Ach Israeli readers, please do not claim to speak for all Jews. It's so very tedious.

alon said...

I didn't said that anti-zionist are anti-Semitic too, I only said that anti-zionist is kind of racism, like when you say that Avigdor Liberman is racist because he hate arabs..well he doesn't hate arabs for being arabs, he hates them because of their actions, is he racist? yes he is...but you also, when you hate zionist because of their govermant actions...when you hate people because of their ideology, when you not reconise their state...yes you are racist..this isn't verdict this is my opinion...and yes there is a lot of anti-Semitic elements in your blog...

P.S- we have a lot of reasons to be afraid from you too... your freinds in the south are not poor angels like you think...

ok, the temple mount was and is a the holy site for jews...

it was conquered by islam and now is controlled by islam...

Islam has used bulldozers ON THE TEMPLE MOUNT with no riots, no permits, no respect to the PEOPLE who BUILT the mount...

Now Israel is building a RAMP and this is cause for excitement?

Within the Palestinian territories the palestinians have destroyed HUNDRED of Jewish historic sites and yet not a sound from the islamic world.

remember Joseph's tomb? the one that was dismantled down to the ground and then painted GREEN?

It would actually would be a funny hoot if israel actualy suspended islamic control of the Dome of the Rock and did not allow ANY moslems there for prayer and kept it locked and closed...

Funny how Islamic families still have the keys to CHRISTIAN sites in Jerusalem, since Christianity predates the moslem INVASION by 700 yrs...

Want to get excited about anti-islamic things?

then continue to cry wolf...

Marilyn said...

The Muslims of Jerusalem have the key to the Church of the Sepulchre in Jerusalem not because they wanted control but because they were asked to hold the keys by the warring Christian sects in the past. It has become more of a symbolic tradition of community arbitration than anything else.

The Muslims never destroyed any religious icons in Jerusalem. They were careful to do the opposite and, in fact, it was the custom to involve the local religious leaders of all faiths in the decisions that impacted any religious site in the city.

The Israeli government has had a "tradition" of negating any consensus and has erased centuries of political cooperation among the sects that was prevalent in Jerusalem.

I think maybe you guys need to study ALL of the history of the area before you start accusing people of being ant-semitic. I am an anti Zionist because Zionism, in its core ideology, is a racist and oppressive ideology that puts one group of people above all else and, therefore, it justifies the oppression and murder of the children of Arabs.

Many of us are frankly sick and tired of this hiding behind the "victimhood" status of people like you and the Zionists as they slit the throats of the children whose homes they are trying to steal and whose culture they are trying to obliterate, all in the name of some fake ideology called ZIONISM. Maassacres were committed to spread fear among Arabs so that they would leave and their lands stolen.

Why should a Zionist from the Bronx lay claim to a house that belongs to an Arab? Anyone who justifies such a behavior is a criminal in their thinking and behavior.

Ask the Israeli military about the nerve gas it uses on Palestinians in the Occupied Territories and the white phosphorous it uses in Lebanon. It deliberately littered the landscape of Lebanon with cluster munitions that are unexploded to TERRORIZE the civilian population, knowing full well that most of the casualties will be women in children and as they were in the process of withdrawing. What military "need" did those cluster bombs satisfy? They are no more than murderers who were bent on revenge and a final act of blasphemy and murder before they left the country they could not subjugate (they are not done with it yet and they have a nuclear arsenal to back them up, oh, MOST MORAL ARMY IN THE WORLD, my FOOT).

So spare me the Zionist rhetoric. The game is up and the world sees Zionists and their military machine for what they really are: nothing more than land grabbing, murdering, atheist, uncompassionate SOBs who ever walked this earth and they do not care who they oppress in the process, including the Jews who suffered terribly under Nazi Germany and who do not agree with what is happening in the Middle East.

Zionism is a political disease like Fascism and Nazim for a simple reason, it makes all people subservient to that ideology and they cease to be human.

By the way, that ideology attracts a certain type of human being: delusional racists and self-centered almighty psychopaths.

And don't forget about the Palestinians in Gaza which burned the synagogues...

but it isn't new that islamist are hypocrites...
when someone draw their Mohamad in caricature they go out the streets and cry, but no one say anything when they burned israel flags, teach their children that jews are pigs, when they deny the Holocaust, when they shout tousend of people "death to America,death to israel"....
you should thank the israelis when they give you the premison to go this place, the jordenians didn't let the jews go to the western wall.

and now they only fix a bridge...a fucking bridge.. it is so typical

alon said...

LOL, Marilyn, you just proof what I was saying, you are fucking racist, look how much hate you have, you talk about people like you talk about disease...
if this blog administration has little respect, they would delet your post, but they have not...

you need to look again about your post and look how it sounds..

and you talk about racism? LOL
you make me sick...

I stand corrected, I do now remember that story.


Marilyn said... The Muslims never destroyed any religious icons in Jerusalem.

How about the Mount of Olives Cementary?

How about the Western Wall was used as a garbage dump.

How about 22 tons of 1st century artifacts bulldozed 3 yrs ago and dumped in a wadi from the TEMPLE MOUNT?

But I do like the way you "qualify" it. the moslems of "jerusalem"..

How many Jewish sites were erased in jerusalem by Jordan?

Marilyn said...They were careful to do the opposite and, in fact, it was the custom to involve the local religious leaders of all faiths in the decisions that impacted any religious site in the city.

Ah, is that why it was illegal for jews to blow the shofar at the western wall? Your point is crap..

Marilyn said... The Israeli government has had a "tradition" of negating any consensus and has erased centuries of political cooperation among the sects that was prevalent in Jerusalem.

Nice statement..

this tradition imposed by the invading moslems was and is crap.

Marilyn said... I think maybe you guys need to study ALL of the history of the area before you start accusing people of being ant-semitic.

i have studied, here is a fact, the arab world & islamic have ethnically cleansed all jews from their midst, (with 2 small exceptions)

Marilyn said... I am an anti Zionist because Zionism, in its core ideology, is a racist and oppressive ideology that puts one group of people above all else and, therefore, it justifies the oppression and murder of the children of Arabs.

actually israel and zionism are fine with having 25% arab populations as citizens... however again look to the arab world and see that they do enjoy killing jews and israelis as job occupations.

Marilyn said...Many of us are frankly sick and tired of this hiding behind the "victimhood" status of people like you and the Zionists as they slit the throats of the children whose homes they are trying to steal and whose culture they are trying to obliterate, all in the name of some fake ideology called ZIONISM.

well nice statement again!
1. Jews dont slit throats, moslems do
2. No homes have been stolen since "1967" and actually Israel has left 99.9% of all disputed lands in total, what is left is a small portion of the west bank, since israel has offered 97% of that back as well.
3. The concept of zionism is 3800 years old, unlike the fake people palestine whos name "palestinian" was used to refer to JEWS until 1949.

There never was a "arab" national identity of Palestine until the egyptian Arafat created it in 1965

Marilyn said...Maassacres were committed to spread fear among Arabs so that they would leave and their lands stolen.

ok, fine that was 1948 & 1967, what about the 500,000 jews ethnically cleansed in 1948 & 1967? never heard of population exchange? Millions after ww2 had to resettle, none had to move less than 6 miles away like the fake people palestine, and none have had their own UN agency pouring billions down their throats to no ever "resettle? and noone else counts a refugee as a decendent...

Marilyn said...Why should a Zionist from the Bronx lay claim to a house that belongs to an Arab?

Newsflash, there has been no "new' disputes in 50 yrs, and trust me MOST of those "zionists" BUILD new homes

Marilyn said... Anyone who justifies such a behavior is a criminal in their thinking and behavior.

but kassams are just?

Marilyn said...Ask the Israeli military about the nerve gas it uses on Palestinians in the Occupied Territories

and yet there is no proof and no mass deaths, dam...

Marilyn said...and the white phosphorous it uses in Lebanon.

again, no proof, and no mass deaths, dam...

Marilyn said... It deliberately littered the landscape of Lebanon with cluster munitions that are unexploded to TERRORIZE the civilian population, knowing full well that most of the casualties will be women in children and as they were in the process of withdrawing.

Yep, i agree on that on, aint taht a great idea? cluster bomb the area that attacked you and murdered your people and kidnapped your soliers! I love it..

great lesson, dont attack israel and you wont have custer bombs left in your gardens... but i notice you dont mention the hezbollah 4400 rockets? were they love pellets?

Marilyn said...What military "need" did those cluster bombs satisfy?

it's called an object lesson... if you dont attack israel or allow iran to use your lands to attack israel you wont have cluster bombs..

karmas a bitch aint it?

Marilyn said... They are no more than murderers who were bent on revenge and a final act of blasphemy and murder before they left the country they could not subjugate (they are not done with it yet and they have a nuclear arsenal to back them up, oh, MOST MORAL ARMY IN THE WORLD, my FOOT).

We'll dont you fret, israel will not drop leaflets next time, and maybe you will learn not to fuck with israel?

Marilyn said...So spare me the Zionist rhetoric. The game is up and the world sees Zionists and their military machine for what they really are: nothing more than land grabbing,

yep that's why the left lebanon and gaza and the world loved it...

Marilyn said... murdering, atheist, uncompassionate SOBs who ever walked this earth

Ah... jews are atheists and the good moslems that shoot rockets on civilians are good monothiests?

Marilyn said... Zionism is a political disease like Fascism and Nazim for a simple reason, it makes all people subservient to that ideology and they cease to be human.

and yet... 25% of israel is arab and they live in freedom... and yet the arab world has honor killings... hmmm me thinks your a bit to wound up...

Marilyn said... By the way, that ideology attracts a certain type of human being: delusional racists and self-centered almighty psychopaths.

is that why mohammed married a jew?

is that why islam "borrowed" the jewish prophets?

hmmm... talk about a chick that hasnt gotten laid...

A bulldozer and skulls enshrined in $$$$$.
As for the israelis guests of your blog I think that their histerical agressivity wouldn't exist if they didn't know that they are abject colonisers.Thus all their invectives proove beyond belief a/that they feel guilty b/that their moral position is unsustainable with all due respect to the suffering of Jews through history.To make a whole population far away from europe pay for crimes they didn't commit since 1948 is just cruel,disgusting and ridiculous.
On the subject of excavations in Jerusalem I was told repeatedly by different archeologists working or having worked in the city that 50 years of excavation have not disclosed a single evidence of the temple or jewish remains.Curious,in a land so fertile in archeological artifacts...

Congratulations Emily,
your blog has now attracted the attention of the rabid dog bunch that constitutes a large part of the Israhell amen corner. This constitutes a whole new level of achievement. Now the sky is the limit I say.

wow, now that is amazing, were those so called "archeologists" actually alive?

to state that in 50 years not a single bit of evidence of jewish or temple artifacts have not been found is simply azaming, next you will tell me that islam is a religion of peace and that the world is flat or that arafat actually was a "palestinian"..

amazing and I thought denial was a river in egypt..

Actually "what is occupation", denial is posting excessively vacuous, predictable and repetitive comments on a saturday night, and still thinking you have a life (aside from the general pleasures of rifle-butting unarmed civilians).

wow, big words, did you go to an American University? Do you actually understand them?

EDB.. and still thinking you have a life (aside from the general pleasures of rifle-butting unarmed civilians).

Edb, somehow you think that all that find your culture lacking are "rifle-butting unarmed civilians". Nothing could be further from the truth...

I personally think that if an attacker uses a rock, bomb, rocket, knife, pistol, bomb belt or rifle they should be rifle butted until dead...

Please show me where Israel advocates "rifle butting unarmed civilians", but please spare me the human shield nonsense, if you have "unarmed civilians" protecting gunman, then according to the Geneva convention they are NOT by definition, non-combatants and if they are injured it is the responsibility of the people HIDING (like cowards) behind the skirts and diapers of civilians

EDB said...

It doesn't matter if Israel turns a blind eye to the excesses of the IDF or actually orders them. It amounts to the same. The former is in fact more convenient for your conscience but has the same effects on the civilian populations you subjugate. I know enough former IDF soldiers and have seen it with my own eyes... and I was talking about the pleasure of doing so. What, you mean you're just an armchair bully and don't really enjoy brutalizing people in the flesh? Go figure.
What-is-occupation I will delete your comments henceforth if they do not interest me or are downright offensive. Your ramblings are a waste of space, your rhetoric-- again-- predictable, and your retorts lame. Haaretz forbids the comparison of Israeli occupation to Nazism in their response section; I forbid you from expounding that 80,000 Lebanese were killed by Arabs when in fact Israel managed to knock off 30,000 in the summer of 1982 (and that amounts to almost 1% of the population). Why don't you start your own blog? Perhaps you can get some funding from the ministry of information towards that ends...

back to the point...

Israel is rebuilding a ramp..

it uncovers 7th century islamic artifacts, it doesnt destroy them like the palestinians DO...

and i follow that up with the status of other jewish sites in the arab world...

most of those have been destroyed...

Conclusions:

1. The excavation work is totally routine, and outside the religious compound, fully within the Israeli-controlled area.

2. It is to replace a temporary ramp to the only entrance to the compound that is controlled by Israelis. The temporary ramp replaced the earth mound which had collapsed.

3. Therefore, protests against it are merely protests against Israel. I'm sure people who hate Israelis would prefer them not to have access to the compound.

4. Which also means there are no rational protests against the ramp construction work itself. It's all purely political, and rooted in hate and control. Israel has done nothing new or heinous with the construction of the ramp. It's mere existence is, as it has been, the real, and ONLY, focus of these protests.

Muslim prayer room found near Mugrabi Gate
By Ronny Shaked, Yedioth Internet, February 18, 2007

Remains of an ancient Muslim prayer room were found under the dirt embankment adjacent to the Mugrabi Gate in 2004, yet the findings, unearthed after part of the embankment collapsed into the Western Wall compound, were kept secret until now.

The information was withheld from the public but had been known to various Israeli officials. The findings were revealed in an article
posted on the Israel Antiquities Authority's internet site by archaeologist Yuval Baruch, who works in the Jerusalem district.

What is "Occupation" said...

then it's not a secret?

let's compare that to the dead sea scrolls?

hmmm...

or compare that to the islamic trusts bulldozing and dumping of 2 tons of materials in a wadi?

usually if something is POSTED on an official israeli website it aint a secret.
