[Billions in unauthorized U.S. taxpayer dollars, per year, are funding the military-state of Israel; the state of Israel then commits terrorism, ethnic cleansing, and genocide against innocent civilians. Divest from Israel. Boycott Israel. Refuse to pax illicit taxes. End the wars. Vote for Ron Paul. –DT]

Talk about ‘grasping at straws’ and ’sinking lower than low’…. the champion of such actions is at it again…. Israeli authorities just ordered the demolition of a mosque that was built near Jerusalem without a permit.

This alleged CRIME was committed 700 YEARS AGO!!!

Just another instance of collective punishment and ethnic cleansing…. How can you ethnic cleanse an entire nation without cleansing their history as well??

The following report from the Ma’an News Agency deals with this very sick situation….

Sheikh Muhammad Hussein, the Mufti of Jerusalem [Ma’anImages]Mufti condemns Israeli decision to demolish historic mosque near Jerusalem

Jerusalem – Ma’an – The Grand Mufti of Jerusalem, Sheikh Muhammad Hussein has condemned a decision by Israeli authorities to demolish the Al-Omari mosque in the village of Umm Tuba near Jerusalem under the pretext that the building had been built without a license on Sunday.

Sheikh Hussein told Ma’an that the mosque was built more than 700 years go, and it was last restored in 1963. It is the only mosque in Umm Tuba.

The Mufti claimed that Israeli authorities have been attempting to wipe out historic Islamic sites in Palestine which is violation of all religious values and international treaties.

He warned of the repercussions and called on the United Nations Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) which is charged with protecting human cultural heritage around the world, and other international organizations to prevent the demolition of the mosque.
