Islam – The Perpetual Nuisance
I keep writing about the childish stupidity of the Palestinian Arabs and their simple belief that they can fool people by playing games and tricks that are so obvious that a blind man could see through them. It would all be so funny if it wasn’t, literally, deadly serious.
This latest silly bit of manoeuvring by the Muslims in Jerusalem aptly demonstrates my point.
In an effort to gain control of Gan Ha’atzmaut (Independence Park) and to expropriate the land from Israeli sovereignty, the Islamic Movement has begun setting up new gravestones in the park insisting that it is a Muslim holy site.
For some time now the Islamic Movement has been attempting to gain control of Gan Ha’atzmaut, which is centrally located in the heart of Jerusalem, opposite the US consulate on Rechov Agron, but the courts have repeatedly rejected their claims.
There are a number of old Muslim graves located in the park.
In one instance (June 2008), the Islamic Movement petitioned against building the Tolerance Museum in the park claiming that it is being built on a Muslim cemetery. The Jerusalem court ruled that the State and the Jerusalem municipality would fulfill the religious requirements necessary to protect the gravesites, and decided against the Islamic Movement’s petition.
When the Islamic Movement realized that the area is not legally considered a Muslim cemetery, they decided on a course of action which would turn it into one. Within a short period of time, they established hundreds of new “gravestones” in the park (without graves underneath).When the State and the Jerusalem municipality started demolishing the gravestones, the Islamic Movement demanded a court order to stop them.
Justice Dov Pollak of the Jerusalem Magistrate Court wrote “I find it strange that in an area where there are few known graves, nearly 500 unmarked graves have been “discovered” and marked within just a few months. He rejected the Islamic Movement’s application for a temporary injunction and allowed the State and City employees to continue their work.
However, there is a strange twist to this tale:
The Legal Forum for the Land of Israel recently discovered that despite the court’s decision, the general manager of the KKL (Israel Land Authority), Yaron Bibi, had ordered the demolition work stopped.
In a letter to Mr. Bibi, The Legal Forum asked whether or not he had given orders to stop the work, because
“... if you have ordered the city to stop demolishing the fictitious graves, then you are responsible for serious harm to the rule of the law, particularly after the court has already decided that the State and the municipality are to continue their work. In addition, your orders injure the honour and authority of the court, and are even more serious coming from a government authority.”
The Legal Forum notified Bibi that they would determine whether or not he was fulfilling his responsibility to protect State lands, and doing everything in his power to prevent illegal seizure of State lands by the Islamic Movement or any other organization. Copies of the letter were sent to the KKL supervisor for the Jerusalem and Southern District, and to the head of the department for supervising construction in the Jerusalem municipality.
Matters appertaining to the freedom of Israel are not helped by having a Government so dominated by wishy-washy leftists that it kowtows to the Islamists at every chance that presents itself. But honestly, did those childish Muslims honestly think that by placing false gravestones in full daylight that they would somehow be able to claim what doesn't belong to them? Risible isn't the word!
