Palestinians Building Mosque in Nazareth
Vatican Calls Them Extremists
Israel - Middle East
Wednesday, November 14, 2001
Jack Kinsella - Omega Letter Editor

Muslims in Nazareth are building a mosque in Nazareth beside the Basilica of the Annunciation. The Vatican has lodged a protest with the Wakf [Islamic Trust]. The Vatican said "Building the mosque here will in effect put this holy place in a state of permanent siege and make its gate a gathering place for the most hostile elements."

The Wakf has demonstrated Arafat's so-called 'protection of Christian holy sites' to be part of the tissue of lies he offered to the UN at the General Assembly last week.
Israeli authorities charged today that the work constituted a provocation and threatened to stop the construction by force, even as the Muslim holy month of Ramadan begins. Local Christians warned the work could re-ignite the interreligious violence that erupted at the site last year.
Construction on the mosque began Monday, without the necessary permits, but the Israeli Lands Authority ordered it halted. The Wakf, or Islamic Trust, stopped the work today but said it will start again if it does not get the necessary permits within a week.
According to sources in Israel, the construction operation has been operating at night in order to keep the project a secret. But it is hard to hide a new mosque going up when the sun comes up. The Vatican is now complaining that Israel made excessive concessions to the Muslims, while ignoring promises made to Christian leaders, including the pope.
Israel believes that starting construction days before the start of Ramadan is a cynical use of the holiday by the Muslims, with the hope authorities will not act to stop the work.
Arafat had, at the time, sided with the Christians in the dispute, saying in December 1999 that the Muslims should not build the mosque so close to the church.
Arafat continues to promise one thing and do another. In his speech to the UN General Assembly, Arafat accused Israel of 'undermining our Christian and Muslim holy sites.' In point of fact, the Arafat appointed Islamic Authority has been conducting excavations under Temple Mount for years, systematically destroying or covering up any evidence of a Jewish Temple on the site. Those Jewish holy sites located in Palestinian controlled areas are off-limits to Jews, as is the Temple Mount. Christian holy sites are generally closed to the Christians.
Arafat is a liar and a terrorist. But the world is so deluded by the major Western media [who backed the wrong side from the beginning and are attempting to cover up their error by concealing what they know now] that Arafat can pretty much say anything he wants, knowing it will be extensively reported, and do anything he wants, knowing it will be largely ignored.
