Arutz Sheva: “Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu apparently is very intent on forbidding Jewish prayer on the Temple Mount – the holiest site in Judaism – so much so that on Thursday he called Jordanian King Abdullah II and stressed to him again that the discriminatory “status quo” on the site will be kept.

Ahead of a meeting with Indian Home Affairs Minister Rajnath Singh on Thursday evening, Netanyahu said “I spoke today to King Abdullah of Jordan and we agreed that we’ll do every effort to calm the situation.”

“I explained to him that we’re keeping the status quo on the Temple Mount and that this includes Jordan’s traditional role there, as consistent with the peace treaty between Israel and Jordan,” said Netanyahu.”

Opinion: “And they shall fall by the edge of the sword, and shall be led away captive into all nations: and Jerusalem shall be trodden down of the Gentiles, until the times of the Gentiles be fulfilled. Luke 21:24

Look at that face.

img491694Arutz Sheva: Jordan has withdrawn its ambassador to Israel, citing clashes on the Temple Mount.

Prime Minister Abdullah Nsur asked the foreign minister to “recall the Jordanian ambassador from Tel Aviv in protest at Israel’s escalation on the Al-Aqsa mosque compound,” the Petra news agency reported.

The announcement was made shortly prior to this afternoon’s terrorist attack in Jerusalem, in which one person was killed and at least 13 wounded, according to Channel Two.

The Jordanian government has made several threats to Israel against allowing Jews to set foot on the Temple Mount – Judaism’s holiest site.

Opinion: Until the Temple Mount terror attacks of the past weeks, Jordan had been on relatively good terms with Israel.

Bur Jordan represents three of the Psalm 83:4 armies; Edom (South) – Moab (Central) – Ammon (North). Just as Turkey’s 2010 Mavi Marmara flotilla incident destroyed relations with Israel, the Temple Mount may be the catalyst for soured relations as well.

Jordan’s proximity to Israel is dangerous. As Israel’s next door neighbor and home nation to the so-called Palestinians, the potential to wreak havoc is daunting.

It is interesting however, that Jordan has such interest in the Temple Mount in light of the fact that when Jordan controlled East Jerusalem Jordan’s King Hussein had scant interest in even visiting.

You see, Jerusalem is NOT mentioned in the Koran, except as the place where Mohammed tied his horse before his winged flight to heaven.

Joel Rosenberg: “On January 10th of this year, I began writing a series of columns on key people in the epicenter who I planned to keep an eye on in 2014. The first name on my list was Jordan’s King Abdullah II.

Sure enough, the King has proven himself a central player in a region set aflame by the forces of Radical Islam this year.

As the flames get higher, several critical questions come to the fore:

  • Will ISIS or other Radical groups try to topple the King and raise their black flag over Amman?
  • Will the U.S., NATO and other allies stand closely together with the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan, one of our most important allies in the region, to make sure this does not happen?
  • Will the U.S., Israel and Sunni Arab countries such as Jordan, Egypt, Saudi Arabia — as well as some of the emirates — forge a quiet but effective alliance not only to stop jihadists like ISIS but to stop the ayatollahs in Iran from going nuclear?

Opinion: Jordan also has special significance in that it is mentioned three times in the war of Psalm 83:1-8

  • Edom: Palestinians of the West Bank and Southern Jordan
  • Moab: Palestinians of Central
  • Ammon: Palestinians of Northern Jordan
  • Amalek: Arabs of southern Israel and the Sinai
  • Ishmaelites: Saudi Arabia
  • Hagarenes: modern-day Egypt
  • Philistia: Gaza, Israeli border of Egypt (Hamas)
  • Gebal: northern Lebanon
  • Assyria: Syria including Kurdish (northern) Iraq
  • ‘Inhabitants’ of Tyre: modern-day Lebanon (Hezbollah)

Joel Rosenberg makes an interesting point that Abdullah is a reformer :

He is actively trying to lead his small, oil-less, but vitally important nation towards progress and freedom, tolerance and modernity. He’s keeping close ties with the Arab world. He maintains a close friendship with the U.S., and is maintaining his nation’s courageous peace treaty with Israel. He’s also actively trying to help the Palestinians and Israelis make peace, as well. But the Radicals desperately want to topple the King and seize Jordan for themselves.”

So my question: Is it Abdullah that orders the Jordanian armies into Psalm 83 or another entity that conquers Jordan?

Arutz Sheva: “One-sided ‘sign of goodwill’ offered by Israel, even as Hamas refuses to discuss returning two fallen IDF soldiers’ bodies for now.
