Excavation of AL AQSA

13 February, 2007

  Related Speakout  

Apparently bowing to the strong protest lodged by the international community, especially the Muslim countries, Israel has stopped the excavations near Al-Aqsa Mosque, Islam`s third holiest site.


Earlier, the Israeli premier had spurned the appeals, including one made by Israel`s defence minister to halt the work.

The excavations, which Israel says aim to salvage artifacts before construction of a pedestrian bridge leading to the complex also sacred to Jews, have angered Muslims who fear the work can damage the foundations of the 1400-year-old Al-Aqsa.

On the other hand, the Arab League had warned that the excavations could hurt efforts to revive the long-stalled Israeli-Palestinian peace process.

It also stressed that the sacredness of the site makes any movement inside or around it a very sensitive issue for Arab and Muslim people, in a way that could cause the situation to explode.

Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert claimed that a thorough examination of the matter revealed that nothing about the work underway will harm anyone, and there is no truth in the contentions against the work. Whereas, Grand Mufti of Jerusalem, Shaikh Salah disclosed that the Israelis are building a synagogue 97 meters away from the Dome of Rock as part of the ongoing excavation work.

Here are some questions
1) What do you suggest that why has Israel started and later stopped excavation?
2) Was it an attempt to judge the Muslim countries reaction in case of complete demolition of Al-Aqsa Mosque?
3) Has Israel actually stopped excavation of the Mosque on the pressure of Muslim countries?
4) Has America played any role to stop Israel from excavation?

Total Blast in Middle East

Israeli aim is to demolish Al-Aqsa Mosque, they stop it temporarily, but again they will do it, it is an indication of threat for Muslims world from Israel, America and Europ. Now it is the responsibility to Muslims countries leaders who are sleeping to wake up, and established a joint Muslims Countries Security Force for the safety of Al-Aqsa Mosque.... Otherwise they will demolish it and and the TOTAL BLAST IN MIDDLE EAST will be occur.

Excavations around Al-Aqsa

The gravity of situation is related to the ultimate peace on earth and need to be discussed without
reservations and with un-biast approach. Here are my views and answers to your four questions as such:

1) What do you suggest that why has Israel started and later stopped excavation?

Answer: This is a classic way with supported techniques and logistics of carrying through a decided act through steps like start, stop, hold and restart modes.These steps will be steered through with occasional application of breaks or stops.And the pace of these modes of actions will be determined by the reaction in the Islamic world.Even though the reaction at Islamic government head figure levels has been mute and of near neglect, the Islamic people and the ground war participants around Israel have demonstrated enough not to let the things go through un-obstructed and un-checked.Perhaps Israelis are reading through if the Islamic world, after the destruction of Al-Aqsa through calculated mechanical engineering effects of excavations, will take up the whole issue as animosity against the existence of Israel for ever. To day,the issues of recognition of Israel or other wise are of not that big worry and are subject to change if or as the Israeli state starts behaving in a rational ways to its neighbours.

No body wants to demage a neighbour if there is good mutual behaviour. And muslims are not that mad people to ignore that Jews have historic roots there as well. Christian Europe may have tried to exterminate the Jews, but it was Islamic world that accepted them with open hearts giving them refuge in Istanbul, Bukhara, Samarkand, Casablanca and many other places.It is not muslims fault if the jews in those cities got absorbed, assimilated and nearly forgotten through inter marriages betwen jews and muslims.

2) Was it an attempt to judge the Muslim countries reaction in case of complete demolition of Al-Aqsa Mosque?

Answer:Mechanical engineering and soil ground strength effects can be made workable to reverberate into to make it look like accidental tragedy in order to conceal the real intentions.This can be attempted vindication through benefits of doubt and accomplishment of the intended goal.

The jews are exceptional smart and prudent to read into the reactions. Look at America and the rest of the world as a small population has made the world its money slave. They have made the world believe blindly that the debt is credit. Every body, even the governments of talking of being credited while they and more specifically the coming generations will be paying to the nose and with legs and arms the interest plus the principle on debt. People today gladly talk of credit cards, while they are in fact debt cards. Almost all home less people in north America have the causes in their credit(debt) cards.The jews are exactly judging the reaction of the muslim countries. Each time an other muslim leader talks of recognizing Israel out of sincere or enslaved heart, the Isrel gets into their plays and targets. It is like a cat and mouse game.

3) Has Israel actually stopped excavation of the Mosque on the pressure of Muslim countries?

Answer: It is not pressure of the muslim countries as Israel is the most empowered nation on the planet earth for now.Things were not the same when Russian Kosygin called president Johnson on hot line with the blunt warning:

"Stop them or we will"

And Russian military in 1967 was much better positioned and closer to carry out the threat. Johnson had to surrender to Russia's demand immediately and on the spot.
Things can and are changing again as Russia and China have gone very much obsessed in procuring the deadliest weapons of mass destruction to match America's.And Russia still has the legacies of those comparable weapons.

Even if you set the military factor aside, the oil and gas resources of muslims are enough to devastate world economies if the things get too ugly.

4) Has America played any role to stop Israel from excavation?

Answer: America is too much sold out to Israel and Jews.Even before world war two and according to Hitler's words in his famous book "mein kemf" or "my struggle", he sites that only one big America's industrial corporation,"Ford motors" were exempt from Jewish control. All other big industries owned by the jews controled America. Bribes, deceptions, intrigues and multiple wars are the common happenings in the jewish mastered uni-polar world. But Shanghai accord is now set to change that to revert it back to like it was before 1990.

America is slave to Israel and some Arab monarchies and Musharraf and his military are being attempted into second hand slaves of Isreal through America.Even BB is bidding to be there.

Israel has demonstrated its masterly control of America many times and there is a long un-ending list of those accounts that your short space here does not allow to list them.

Alaqsa relativity with rebirth of yehudees since Gadr

AlAqsa Episode started with Queen Victoria 1858 declaration “our strength is based
upon theirs” coinciding With last Mughal ruler Bahadur Shah Zafar Urdu poem 1858 Birth of Qadiani G Ahmed Foundation Deoband Institute .There also came with a Quick recruitment of Charles Darwin and origin of species. Darwin is buried in Westminster. This coincided with Lord Dufferin of Canada India UK and subsequent birth of Bani Israel Arab sheiks Via Jewish Lord Balfour and UK McDonald .Irish famine brought Queen Victoria .Alaqsa came With UK MP Shannon (Chicago born).This came along with Iraq invasion sheik meeting with Einstein and Einstein theory of relative Alaqsa Miraj of holy Prophet Muhammad pbuh.

Man proposes God Dispose. Only recently USA Canada UK Germany European had outshined Japanese Chinese. Although Muslim in general had sacrificed high profile living standard in pursuit for Islamic teaching which had been distorted since 1857Gadr development but real loser are above Group of people and nation. They have sacrificed white race white dignity own prosperity in direct quarrel with Lord via self declared Lords self declared prophet self declared Vishnu with little perception with little IT knowledge.

However with above distortion new distortion came in the format of Salman Rushdie Taslima Nasreen invasion of Iraq, Alqaeda Osama Bin Ladin, and Danish Cartoon with equal fun joke of TV mosque show Little Mosque on Prairie.

The writ of democracy of above group is to undermine Islamic countries. Original Anti Islamic Torch bearers are dead. The New Torch bearers of democracy writ with foreign soldiers around have Little perception of God or religion or method of judgement or running Office sharing commission and income expenditure bill which in turn Remained based on stolen asset.Alaqsa of 1858-2007 with torch bearers (obvious) They Are those who are hell bent to torch Islam Islamic OIC Quran Islamic religion and Alaqsa Miraj relativeity.Will they succeed With such a poor perception of everything( including democracy and democratic court)? L & M should have been Kalma #1.Instead
-m- for hamburger is disgrace in OIC and is part of conspiracy to defraud.

Alaqsa crisis since Hitler died

Divide and rule was UK method. Method is catalyst which increase
Or reduce chain reaction. Principle is taking aspirin for pain rather than
Hammering pain out. King of UK may have created sheikdoms and bani
Israel. But Shannon Neville Ramsay McDonald Bunch incited Hitler for
Being imprisoned incited Hitler to make wrong move i.e.
Attack Muslim Russia and Ottoman Yugoslavia

With Tehran Conference to attack Japan but Hitler Mussolini Japan
Had own anti Jews legislation .They had almost won Russia. If there
Was a win there would have been neither Alaqsa crisis nor Sheikdom
Neither crisis nor Car revolution. Success came to share stolen asset bribes amid
Enemy from within via catalyst induced since 1858 mutiny.


Z_Belal, Canada - 19 February, 2007

Removing a pile of dirt next to a structure that has stood 2,000 years is hardly "undermining Al Aqsa."

The only thing that could lead to the colapse of the Haram as_Sharif is the digging that goes on *within* the structure itself.

Indeed the Waqf has miscalculated in it's run to develop the complex and has put the whole complex in danger. Israel happened to start a project just at the right time so that they can be blamed if the structure collapses. It's brilliant. I'm divided on the issue, Palestinians have been forced to take the blame for so much that they weren't responsible for by Israel, now they've turned tables, and can blame Israel for something they did. It evens the score a little bit.

Israels new Conspiracy

Israelis are plannig similar to what has happen in INDIA. But Allah swt is the BEST PLANNER. Israeli has taught INDIANS how to Demolish Babri Mosque. They have setted the plan and trained Hindu Terrorists of INDIA. Thats how INDIAN Terrorists so called Hindu Extremists carried the demolition of Babri Mosque. Initially these HINDU terrorists/extremist like RSS/VHP/BJP/Bajrang Dal and Shiv Sena said they will do some shila nyas (so called Pooja)and not disturb anything to Mosque, but they fooled Indian Muslims. Which was clearly a shameful act. Since the Muslims are in Minority in INDIA just had faith in their leaders that everything will be allright but nothing came fruitful and everything was lost. Babri Mosque was Shahid. God will punish such people to every inch.

Truth_Lover, Hungary - 22 February, 2007

Why not send a Pakistani team of experts to Aqsa instead of feeding the anti-Jewish hysteria?

It is rather comical that so many Pakistanis are willing to feed the hysteria. This is a matter of engineering decisions to repair a collapsed bridge. Turkey has decided to send a delegation to check the situation on the ground. Pakistan should follow suite and send a team of experts there. Our engineers should prepare a report, and if necessary produce an alternative plan. It is time to follow our engineers and ignore these Mullahs and Muftis. These Mullahs should be concerned with mosque instead of bringing so much death and destruction to all of us.

Dr. Qazi, United Kingdom - 23 February, 2007

In reply to Dr Qazi

This is in response to Dr Qazi's letter. It appears that Mr Qazi needs to learn some mathematics.Turkey, Egypt, Jordan and a tiny other country-all put together are under 10 percent of the Islamic population of 1.5 billion people.

WAITING GAME IS BETTER THAN CROSSING THE LINE AGAINST MAJORITY OF OVER 90 PERCENT MUSLIMS. THAT IS WHAT PRUDENT WISDOM DICTATES AS MATHEMATICS AND ITS KNOWLEDGS IS VERY IMPORTANT IN THE LIVES OF ALL HUMANS.

WE ARE NOT EMOTIONALLY TALKING ABOUT OUR RELIGIOUS CLERGY. WE ARE SIMPLY TALKING OF MAJORITY AND THAT IS THE SENSE OF DEMOCRACY AS WELL. THERE ARE LARGE ISLAMIC COUNTRIES TO BE CONSIDERED LIKE INDONESIA, MALAYSIA AND PAKISTAN ITSELF. AND THERE ARE THE ENERGY GIANTS TO LOOK AT SUCH AS IRAN, SAUDI ARABIA, IRAQ,ABU DHABI,IRAQ AND KUWAIT.

AND THERE HAVE TO BE CONSIDERATION OF THE SELF DIGNIFIED AND PRINCIPED MAJORITY ISLAMIC PEOPLE WHO LIVE IN THE WORLD OF ISLAM RATHER THAN THOSE WHO ARE SOLD TO DOLLARS IN THE COMFORTS OF THE WEST AND THOSE FEW CULT RULERS WHO CARRY IN THEM THE SPIRITS OF LAWRENCE OF ARABIA OR THE MONEY SMILES OF OVERLY PRIVILEGED BRIBES AND LOOTS OF RECENT TIMES.

THE MAJORITY OPINION IN THIS FORUM CLEARLY SPEAKS FOR TRUTH RATHER THAN A FEW DRUM BEATERS OF THE WESTERN PRODDED DANCES OF SLAVERY-AT HOME OR IN THE COMFORTS OF THE WEST.

MAY ALLAH BLESS THOSE MAJORITY MUSLIMS WHO WANT TO LIVE IN DIGNITY AT HOME OR IN THE WEST.

Anwar Mahmood, Canada - 24 February, 2007

Canadian-Pakistani should be able to comprehend Logic 101


Al-Aqsa is holy mosque and an old building. Any old building needs constant repair and care. Pakistan has many experts who can help in this situation.

Instead of spitting and frothing, we should volunteer a group of engineers and archeologists for Al-Aqsa as well. And yes! Please do not add any Mullah type in this group.

The sole purpose of this group should be to suggest the best way for doing repairs and yet protecting the sanctity of Al-Aqsa as well as the Wailing Wall.

It is time for us Pakistanis to follow educated people instead of succumbing to the propaganda of some dim-whit Mullah.

Israels 'Hot Thread'

Every overture of peace made by the Palestinians in recent times, has been met with Israeli silence or violence. Last week, Israel said it would not negotiate with the Palestinian unity government signed off by Fatah and Hamas leaders in the Saudi-brokered Mecca Agreement. A few days later, Israel began a series of aggressive incursions into the beleaguered city of Nablus, deep inside the occupied West Bank. Returning again barely 24 hours later, Israel continued the “Hot Winter” offensive by sending 100 tanks and heavily armoured vehicles thundering into Nablus - a blatant provocation that could well trigger a new spate of violence.



Israeli soldiers began forcing Palestinian families out of their homes at gunpoint whilst looking for the relatives of “Wanted Palestinians”. Homes were vandalised and young men were blindfolded, handcuffed and arrested. There was no discriminating between the relatives: an old man with a heart condition and a 5-month pregnant woman were amongst those rounded up and kept under surveillance at a city school. Since the incursions began, some 150 Palestinian civilians have been detained. One man was killed and at least 30 people have been injured.



Large areas of this city of 50,000 people are now being held under military curfew, and once again, Palestinians are being confined to their homes for an indeterminate period. This, of course, has terrible implications for the sick and elderly who are not able to even seek medical assistance. Medics have had to find ways of reaching patients in crisis putting their own lives at risk, particularly since soldiers have taken up positions in peoples’ homes and are using the rooftops as sniper towers. Soldiers have also stationed themselves in the corridors of Rafidiya Hospital and are checking IDs and the belongings of doctors, patients and staff. The old city of Nablus is progressively turning into rubble as soldiers and bulldozers arbitrarily destroy buildings that they decide are security risks.



There is nothing new in all this: Israel has been executing such military operations in Palestinian cities and towns for decades. However, Nablus has borne the brunt of nightly military invasions that never make the media: only some do. Last year, a three day invasion destroyed priceless records covering more than 100 years of Palestinian history from the Ottoman Empire to the present day. As well, thousands of personal identification records were destroyed in a move seen by many as a deliberate act to strip the Palestinians of their identity. And what better way to break the economic centre of the occupied West Bank than to cut Nablus off from every other city and town. It also gives Israel carte blanche to collectively punish the civilian population using whatever methods will further subjugate a people already suffering under its Machiavellian occupation.



On any level of human existence, humiliating and terrorising a city’s population is bound to give rise to resistance. Israel’s claims that such incursions prevent terrorist attacks have not been borne out. There will always be those prepared to fight off their oppressors and the more brutal the response from the military, the more intense the resistance will be. This has been well and truly demonstrated in the forty years of oppression the Palestinians have already endured. The only conclusion that one can draw from Israel’s refusal to recognise the unity government, and Israel’s dangerous provocations in an already volatile situation, is that Israel is not interested in peace with the Palestinians. This raises the question - how does Israel expect to have peace without them?



If it’s not Nablus, it is Jenin or Gaza or any one of the other Palestinian cities and neighbourhoods regularly targeted by Israel’s military that leads to the seeds of discontent being sown from one generation to the next. The damage Israel has wrought on Palestinian society is enormous. Peace cannot come by drawing up unilateral borders, but only through engaging, making real concessions and genuine efforts to see justice done. A “Hot Winter” offensive is just a military solution by yet another euphemistic name. In such a milieu, peace will most likely be held to ransom indefinitely.



Shokat Saleem, Georgia - 06 March, 2007

Mr. Showkat forgot about the title of this discussion (Alaqsa Mosque and its repair)

Palestinians are so unfortunate that their existence has been marked by so much misery.

However this discussion is related to Alaqsa mosque, its old structure, a damaged bridge, and the repair.

No need to repeat the Palestinian story. You reap what you sow. Palestinians consistently made wrong choices. First they sided with Hitler, and then Soviet Union. They got money from the wrong people, and sided with losers. The result is that they lost too.

However Alaqsa mosque is not a Palestinian only issue. It is an issue for Pakistan too.

Instead of spitting and frothing on Israel, Pakistanis should send a team of engineers and suggest solutions and offer help to Israel. That way Alaqsa mosque will be repaired and remain open to worshiping and prayers.

peace

mosque

There is so much outrage(rightly so) in the Islamic world over excavation near Al Aqsa mosque. But nobody ever really complained when Sunnis bombed Holiest Shia mosque in Somara & killed 100s of Muslims. If Shia Iran attacks Mecca & Medina tomorrow everybody will keep quiet!

a s ahmed, Pakistan - 09 March, 2007

western muslims like qazi shud wake up

it pains me to read how western muslims are defending israel and actually still criticissing the mullahs in these very sensitive times when jews are near demolishing the aqsa mosque .these western so called muslims will onlyw ake up when there own lives and honour will be endangered by kuffars in kuffars western countries,wait and watch,then these same traitors of islam so called muslims will scraem for "mullahs" help to safeguard them
but it will be too late by then!

kashif jamal, Pakistan - 02 April, 2007

Destruction

There is ongoing preparation for the destruction of Al-Aqsa mosque in seemingly unconnected events in Kosovo. In the same way that Serbia is deprieved of Kosovo, in Palestina will be deprieved of Al-Aqsa because the jews want to build the third temple for the enthronement of the antichrist. And they will do it with the aid of USA.
