Jerusalem Online: The Al Aqsa Mosque is presently being ruled by the Jordanians.  The Jordanians have a history of ignoring the fact that various Palestinian groups have been utilizing the holy site in order to start riots and engage in other acts of violence against Israel.  Indeed, according to various sources, the Jordanian regime stands behind much of the unrest in the Temple Mount area.  Their media outlets call attacks against Israelis “heroic operations” and they urge Palestinians to harm Israel.

In a previous interview conducted by JerusalemOnline, Dr. Mordechai Kedar stated: ““There is no doubt that Jordan fights against Israel in every arena except the security arena around the border.  A Jordanians prince named Zaid bin Raad is the head of the International Human Rights Council in Geneva.  He is behind a series of decisions that are against Israel.  He is directed by the king to bash Israel at every possible opportunity.  Jordan was behind the decisions of UNESCO, which doesn’t recognize the Jewish connection to Jerusalem and Hebron.   Many other actions they do cannot go along with the peace agreement with Jordan.”

And every man’s hand against him.
And he shall dwell in the presence of all his brethren.” Genesis 16:12
