Israel said bracing for likely Omar, Tlaib visit to flashpoint Temple Mount

Israeli officials are preparing for the likelihood that US congresswomen Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib may seek to visit the flashpoint Temple Mount in Jerusalem during their visit to the country next week, Channel 13 reported Wednesday.

A “secret meeting” was recently held on the subject in Israel’s National Security Council led by Deputy National Security Adviser Reuven Azar, according to Channel 13.

There, the network reported that Azar said there was a high probability that Omar and Tlaib, who are both Muslim, will seek to visit the Al-Aqsa Mosque and Dome of the Rock shrine at the holy site.

The participants at the meeting agreed that if the congresswomen choose to do so, it is vital that the Israel Police not permit their visit to be accompanied by officials of the Palestinian Authority, which would serve as symbolic backing by the US lawmakers for Palestinian claims of sovereignty at the site, the holiest place in Judaism and the third holiest in Islam.

2. I know, right

You've got an Israeli PM trying to out flank the right leading up to the election, and a Palestinian president (Abu mazen) who just claimed he and his people are descendants of the canaanites and the Jews were "unexpected visitors" who just showed up in the 19th century.

4. Let's not forget

They say that there was never a Jewish Temple in Jerusalem, despite accurate historical documents from the time of the Roman Republic/Empire.
