PA Officials Warn Obama Over Visiting Al-Aqsa
Arutz Sheva ^ | 25/2/13 | Elad Benari

Posted on 02/24/2013 4:00:33 PM PST by Eleutheria5

Political and religious leaders in the Palestinian Authority on Sunday stressed that U.S. President Barack Obama should not visit the Al-Aqsa mosque compound in Jerusalem in a way that might compromise what they called its "Muslim sovereignty," AFP reports.

Obama will be arriving in the region in the spring, and PA media has been speculating that he will visit the site of the mosque. The White House, however, has announced neither the dates of Obama's visit nor its itinerary.

Sheikh Akrameh Sabri, head of the higher Islamic council and former Grand Mufti of Jerusalem, said that Obama must enter through a gate that was not under Israeli auspices.

"Any visitor is welcome to Al-Aqsa, but they should follow the regulations of the Waqf and enter through the Lions' Gate and not through Mughrabi Gate, to ensure Muslim sovereignty," he said at a press conference and was quoted by AFP.

Hatem Abdel Qader, who heads the Jerusalem portfolio of the Fatah movement, said that Obama's visit should be coordinated with the PA and with the Jordanians.

"The visit shouldn't have a political theme to it because Al-Aqsa belongs to Muslims only and it is their place of worship and we refuse that any Israeli official accompanies the visitor," said Sabri.

As a Sunni Muslim, he has every right to go to the mosque, unroll his prayer blankee and pray to the Muslim goat god.

It will awaken an evil inside him that has been hidden, and world war three will begin in earnest.

The place needs to be “visited” with a bulldozer.

Probably right...or at least something like that.

And don't the PA officials know Obama is a muzzie...his visit to the Temple Mount will fulfill a prophecy. He is more qualified that any member of the PA.

After all, he is the Mahdi.

What the heck would happen if he started running around claiming to be the Twelfth Imam?

Everyone in the western world would just ignore it and feel sad for him because they know his delusions were a result of a traumatic brain injury.

The Muslims on the other hand. After seeing something that could only be described as a miracle from the creator. They may take him at his word, and initiate their final battle plan for taking over the world.

Uh? I thought he was going the week before Palm Sunday. Supposed to arrive there Weds. I believe?

Being given the medal of honor....

Barack Obama will receive one of Israel's most prestigious honours during his upcoming visit to the Middle East. On Monday, the office of the Israeli president, Shimon Peres, announced that Obama will be given the presidential medal of distinction in March.

A statement said that the honour recognised Obama's "unique and significant contribution to strengthening the State of Israel and the security of its citizens".

Obama to receive Israeli honor next month

PA Officials Warn Obama Over Visiting Al-Aqsa

"Obama will be arriving in the region in the spring, and PA media has been speculating that he will visit the site of the mosque."

Being given the medal of honor....

The first thing that came to mind when seeing the headline was that super-spiffy Peres Medal.

Why you may ask? Because he may need it on a visit to Al Aqsa.

Early in young Hussein’s life, and on July 20, 1951, his grandfather King Abdullah was martyred at al-Aqsa mosque in al-Quds (Jerusalem). Hussein was there, with his grandfather, as they went regularly to perform Friday prayers. A medal King Abdullah had recently given the young Prince Hussein, and which he wore after his grandfather’s insistence, saved Hussein from the assassin’s bullet.

Sunnis believe in the Mahdi (Sunni Muslims' Al-Mahdi)...just with slightly different role than that envisioned by the Shia.

PA Officials Warn Obama Over Visiting Al-Aqsa

No problem, only Obamah might need a couple of Moorish guards for protection!

If only they'd watch Lawrence of Arabia!

Anthony Quinn, Peter O’Toole and Omar Sharif in “Lawrence of Arabia,” which has undergone a 50th-anniversary digital restoration.

The film’s real-life hero, T. E. Lawrence (played by Peter O’Toole), was a flamboyant British officer who gained fame during World War I for leading a gaggle of Bedouin tribesmen in guerrilla assaults on their Turkish occupiers, paving the way for the Ottoman Empire’s downfall. In the process, he came to see himself as a demigod, destined to unite the Arab people and “give” them freedom — an illusion crushed by big-power politics and the Arabs’ own tribal rivalries: a mix that has thwarted dreams for the region ever since, from Gamal Abdel Nasser’s pan-Arabism to George W. Bush’s cakewalk for democracy in Iraq.

Lawrence figured in the debate over our own recent tangles with insurgents, in Afghanistan and Iraq. His memoir, “Seven Pillars of Wisdom,” was tapped both by the United States Army’s counterinsurgency strategists and by skeptics, who quoted Lawrence’s warning about wars against rebellions _ “messy and slow, like eating soup with a knife” — though the enthusiasts took the pronouncement as a challenge.
