Jerusalem - Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has condemned Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas for an “inflammatory speech” about Jerusalem.

Speaking in Qatar, Abbas charged that Israel was intending to destroy the Al-Aqsa Mosque, Islam’s third-holiest site. The mosque sits on top of the remains of the two biblical Jewish temples.

Netanyahu said Abbas should “not disseminate lies and incitement.”

Jerusalem is the most sensitive issue at the core of the conflict between Israel and the Palestinians.

Tensions flared in Jerusalem over the weekend.

One Palestinian was killed, and 11 Israeli police officers were injured.

Netanyahu made the remarks Sunday after Abbas’s speech in Qatar.

Israel's chance to destroy that pagan place was immediately after the Six Day War in June of '67.
Israel would have saved themselves many a problem had moshe dayan not given the keys of the wakf to the mufti of jerusalem, reversing on its head, 'to the victor goes the spoils'.

"... Abbas charged ... Islam’s third-holiest site ..."
Sure ... 3rd holiest site. That's why Jerusalem isn't mentioned once in the Koran, all Muslims pray with their backs toward Jerusalem and no Muslim leader ever visited Jerusalem while it was under Muslim control.
Does any sane (maybe, Hu-sein?) person believe this nonsense?

Abba should be careful what he wishes for....

If Israel was intent on destroying the mosque, they would have already done so.

Abbas and Abbdulla are the real obstacles to peace.

What can you say. The troubles just never ends for the land of israel. Every day there is something else going on. What a troubled nation. Maybe after all it would have been better to wait out the coming of the mesiah.

Right Mark...keep on invoking your doomsday scenarios. The Ebeshter looks forward to your weekly rants predicting what he will or won't do. At a time Netanyahu is seeking to calm the rhetoric, we really don't need foolish yidden like you speaking such meshugaas.

Try telling that to the 300,000 displaced homeless yiddin sitting in DP camps in Europe after the war.

abbas thinks like an Arab and thinks others behave the same way when they are in power. Look what the Taliban did in Afghanistan to the Hindu statues.

of course the simple fact that Israel did not destroy if for the last 60+ years is a small oversight on his part

How true, our greatest enemies are "us" the ones like dayan who always wanted to be accepted by the Goyim. As a reward to the murderers he gave away East Jerusalem in 1967 so now we see what that has brought us.
When all Jews will finally reckognize that there is no one to make peace with as all the Arabs want is to destroy Israel and kill all the Jews worldwide, when we accept this reality then maybe we will have the courage to rise up and obliterate Iran with a Hiroshima type bomb then and only then will there be peace.
I am scared for our survival - not from the Arabs - but from our and the Worlds inaction.
Everyday I open the news and see that it is an open miracle that we are still around, but how long can we go on like this?
The time is here now for a strong leader to emerge and take care of "business".
In 1945 an American president made the decision that 50,000 American lives ( this was the estimated count for aditional losses for the US inless the A bomb was dropped) was worth more then a couple of hundred thousand Japanese lives and what a right decision that turned out to be.
Today 7 million Jewish lifes in Israel and another 20 million Jewish lives are certainly worth Irans antisemitic pipulation to be made an example of.!
The alternative is just unimaginable.
May it be Hashem's will that all come to this conclusion let us rid ourselves from this menace.
