Jordan quietly gaining Temple Mount control: Officials say Arab kingdom using shell firms to buy key properties with access to holy site by Aaron Klein forwarded with comments by Emanuel A. Winston,
Board Member and research associate of
Freeman Center For Strategic Studies
When that antiquities thief, womanizer with the black eyepatch, Moshe Dayan, rushed to give up the keys to the Temple Mount to the Arab Wakf, shortly after it was restored to and reunited with the Jewish people in 1967, the orders presumably came from David Ben Gurion. Too bad that he and his cabal could not politically afford to give observant Jews the Highest Holy Temple on earth. Too bad, because those Jews valued it above all else (except life). But, the Labor Leftists could not dare chance that the Temple site (or also the Cave of the Patriarchs in Hebron) would become rallying points for Jews around the world to return to their holiest roots.
Therefore, Ben Gurion and Dayan gave up the tremendous political power that emanates from whomsoever controls these Holiest Jewish sites. And that process of surrendering our highest Jewish values has never stopped.
If, as is said in the following, that if King Hussein is buying up properties around the Temple Mount, it is because Olmert, Labor and Kadima want it so. It fits the doctrine of the dysfunctional Olmert family, Amir Peretz the dupe and Tzippi Livni, Shabak’s inside agent, and always the evil vulture, Shimon Peres (Peres is the Hebrew word for vulture).
All want the Temple Mount out of their hands and into the hands of the Muslim Wakf. If you think that the Mossad, Shin Bet and Shabak under the control of Olmert, were unaware of King Hussein’s acquisition of properties surrounding the Temple Mount, you would be naive or deliberately blind to what is happening.
This is all in advance of the U.S. State Department “Road Map” plans to divide Jerusalem and make eastern Jerusalem the capital of the neo-state of Fatah/Hamasland.
So, in addition to working to abandon the Golan Heights to Syria, Olmert is also in the process of slicing up Jerusalem and surrendering ALL those areas under Jordanian control for 19 years from 1948 to 1967.
If you are interested in the plotters, look to the Bush family, led by the devious James Baker - among others. But, it is Olmert who they need to sign the deal which is why Olmert is still in office. Should he be indicted for any of the numerous crimes for which he has been accused and investigated, the Leftists and the U.S. State Department will make every effort to put Tzippi Livni into Olmert’s position as PM. Should that fail they will rely upon Bibi Netanyahu turn on his commitments as happened with Sharon.

FROM WND'S JERUSALEM BUREAU
Jordan quietly gaining Temple Mount control
Officials say Arab kingdom using shell firms to buy key properties with access to holy site By Aaron Klein

JERUSALEM – Jordan has been quietly purchasing real estate surrounding the Temple Mount in Jerusalem in hopes of gaining more control over the area accessing the holy site, according to Palestinian and Israeli officials.
The officials confirmed to WND the Jordanian Kingdom has been using shell companies during the past year to purchase several apartments and shops located at key peripheral sections of the Temple Mount.

The officials said Jordan also set up a commission to use the companies to petition mostly Arab landowners adjacent to eastern sections of the Temple Mount to sell their properties. They said profits from sales at any purchased shops would be reinvested to buy more real estate near the Mount and in eastern Jerusalem neighborhoods.
The shell companies at times have presented themselves as acting on behalf of the Waqf, the Muslim custodians of the Temple Mount, WND has learned.
Sheik Azzam Khateeb, who was installed last month as the new manager of the Waqf, is known to be close to the Jordanian monarchy. The previous Waqf manager, Sheik Adnon Husseini, was loyal to Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas' Fatah party and had relations with Israel and some Jewish groups.
"Khateeb answers directly to Jordan," a Fatah official told WND.
The Israeli and Palestinian officials said Jordan recently placed a bid to purchase Jerusalem's Intercontinental Hotel, which is situated on an important road that leads to an ancient cemetery on the Mount of Olives, adjacent to the Temple Mount. Informed sources tell WND the hotel is owned by groups representing the Israeli government and is leased every 10 years to a new company. The last lease was signed in 1997 and expires later this year. It was not immediately clear whether Jordan's bid was accepted.
The Mount of Olives is site of many biblical events and is considered important to Judaism and Christianity.
Real estate ownership in Jerusalem's Old City is widely considered a sensitive matter. Previous Israeli-Palestinian peace proposals tentatively divided parts of the city based on Jewish or Arab residence.
Jordan previously controlled eastern Jerusalem and the Temple Mount from 1948 until Israel liberated the territory in the 1967 Six Day War. During the period of Jordanian control, Jews were barred from the Western Wall and Temple Mount, Judaism's holiest sites, and hundreds of synagogues were destroyed. Jordan constructed a road to the Intercontinental Hotel that stretched across the Mount of Olives, bulldozing hundreds of Jewish gravestones.
Jordan the past few months has boosted its public profile on the Temple Mount.
The appointment of Khateeb as the new Waqf manager for the Temple Mount was widely seen as a nod to Jordan.
In January, Israel granted Jordan permission to replace the main podium in the Al Aqsa Mosque from which Islamic preachers deliver their sermons. The podium is considered one of the most important stands in the Muslim world. Muslims believe it marks the "exact spot" their prophet Muhammad went up to heaven to receive revelations from Allah.
The new stand bears the emblem of the Jordanian Kingdom. It replaces a 1,000-year-old podium believed to have been shipped to Jerusalem by the Islamic conqueror Saladin. That stand was destroyed in 1969, when an Australian tourist set fire to the Al Aqsa Mosque.
Last month WND first reported Prime Minister Ehud Olmert granted permission to Jordan to construct a large minaret at a site on the Temple Mount where Jewish groups here had petitioned to build a synagogue.
A minaret is a tower usually attached to a mosque from which Muslims are called to the five Islamic daily prayers.
There are four minarets on the Temple Mount. The new minaret will be the largest one yet. It will be the first built on the Temple Mount in more than 600 years and is slated to tower over the walls of Jerusalem's Old City. It will reside next to the Al-Marwani Mosque, located at the site of Solomon's Stables.
A top leader of the Waqf told WND Olmert's granting of permission to build the minaret in the synagogue's place "confirms 100 percent the Haram al-Sharif (Temple Mount) belongs to Muslims."
"This proves Jewish conspiracies for a synagogue will never succeed and solidifies our presence here. It will make Muslims worldwide more secure that the Jews will never take over the Haram al-Sharif," the Waqf official said.
