Muslims gathering at the Temple Mount on Wednesday night for the Laylat al-Qadr events marched while calling for the massacre of Jews, as the State of Israel commenced with events marking Yom HaShoah, its national Holocaust remembrance day.

Waving Hamas and PLO flags, the thousands of marchers chanted slogans in support of the Hamas terror organization, called “in spirit and in blood we will redeem Al-Aqsa,” and “Khyber, Khyber al-Yahud” – an explicit call for the massacre of Jews as occurred in the Khyber battle in 629.

Fear not, for I am with you; Be not dismayed, for I am your God.
I will strengthen you, Yes, I will help you, I will uphold you with My righteous right hand.” Isaiah 41:10

The police, who deployed some 3,000 officers to secure the event, did not respond.

The police stated that its boosted deployment “to maintain public peace and security” enabled tens of thousands of Muslim worshipers to reach the Temple Mount to perform the night prayers safely, and the various prayers were held in order. It estimates that some 150,000 Muslims visited the Temple Mount.

Early Thursday morning, after the Fajr prayer and during the dispersal of the worshipers, several dozen rioters disturbed the order, but within a very short time, they were confronted by the police with riots dispersal means while many worshipers at the holy site acted to repel them without the need for police.
