Europe News: Al Quds Day

Below are a couple of interesting articles from Europe News:

Al Quds (Jerusalem) is allegedly the third most holy site in Islam. Strange, then, that it is not mentioned anywhere in the Qur’an or ahadith. Some background: Before the Six Days War between Israel and her neighbours in June, 1967, Jerusalem was supposed to be an international city, holy as it was to three religions, and administrated by the United Nations so that Jews and Christians as well as Muslims could have access to their holy places.

However, the envisaged administration by the UN did not materialise. Instead, upon Israel’s declaration of statehood on 14th May, 1948 and the resulting attacks on her by her Arab neighbours the 1,500 residents of the Jewish Quarter of the Old City were expelled and a few hundred taken prisoner when the Arab Legion captured the quarter on 28th May. The Arab Legion also attacked Western Jerusalem with snipers. Arab residents of Katamon, Talbiya and the German Colony fled. Arabs were also displaced in the battle.

Half of the 58 synagogues in the Old City were either razed or converted to stables and hen houses over the next 19 years, including the Hurva and the Tiferet Yisrael Synagogue. The Jewish Cemetery on the Mount of Olives was desecrated. Its gravestones were used to build roads and latrines and many other historic and religiously significant buildings were demolished and replaced by modern structures.

Regardless of whether one have confidence in the EU or not, the euro debt paved the way for what they are constantly working toward: an European superstate ripped of European charm and democracy, left in the hands of self-elected people who has shown no interest in protecting the citizens against influence of a criminal religion and its immigrated adherents that have turned out to be a catastrophe for our economy, safety and the rule of secular law that so many people through our continent's bloody history have given their lives to get and protect.

It makes no sense to get it stirred up again on new posts.
