Incitement And Child Abuse On The Temple Mount

Yesterday was Eid al-Adha (Sacrifice Feast), the Muslim holiday celebrated worldwide which “honors the willingness of Ibrahim (Abraham) to sacrifice his son Ishmael, as an act of submission to God’s command, before God then intervened sending his angel Jibra’il (Gabriel) and informs him that his sacrifice has already been accepted.” *

Even though the holiday is based on a rewriting of the (earlier) account told in the Torah – in which Abraham was commanded to sacrifice Isaac (a patriarch of the Jewish people), not Ishmael (ancestor of the Muslims) – the Jewish state has been gracious in wishing all Muslims around the world a happy Eid al-Adha.

Methinks they don’t really appreciate it.

Unless they are just getting carried away with the whole child sacrifice motif.

Incidentally, the Arabic in the tweet says “Pictures of Eid al-Adha prayers at the Al Aqsa mosque.”

Given these are the same people who claim Jews walking quietly around the area are “storming” or “desecrating” it, I would suggest they are not the best at finding the right words to use.

Speaking of which, when I see this photo of incitement and child abuse, I also have a hard time finding the right words.
