The Farthest Mosque

One of the most the most publicized conflicts of recent years had been the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. On September 13th, the conflict got even worse.

The Israeli police say they got reports saying that Muslims barricaded the 3rd holiest site in Islam, the Al-Aqsa mosque in Jerusalem, which translates to “The Farthest Mosque”. As the Jewish new year, Rosh Hashanah, approached, some Israelis decided to visit the site they call Temple Mount, otherwise know as Haram al-Sharif (the Noble Sanctuary) in Arabic.

Police say young Palestinians “threw stones and fireworks”. Reports say no one was injured but several Palestinians witnesses say there were many people were wounded, because of these attacks, Israeli police attacked the Mosque.

"They were chasing us with (stun) grenades and it's been like that since the morning," said Khadijeh Khweis, a Palestinian woman.

"We could only pray in front of the doors (leading to the complex).", she told the Agence France-Presse.

 

I am absolutely disgusted by these attacks! The Palestinian people are being treated as they are not even human. They are attacked at every other day and other rarely do any any major western news outlet report it. This attack was reported by the BBC and the New York Times, but the two biggest news outlets, CNN and Fox News, did not even say a word about these attacks.

The Israeli police caused enormous damage to one of the holiest sites in Islam. If Palestinians attacked a Israeli Synagogue, there would be tons of outrage and every major western news outlet would be reporting on it 24/7.

I urge you please watch the videos in the links below and stop watching bias news outlets like Fox News.

I see this everyday and I wish I could help those people who cannot help themselves. The way we can help is by speaking out against the Israeli state and donate money to the people living a hellish life in the Gaza Strip and West Bank.
