As Muslims Boycott Temple Mount in Protest of Increased Security, Jews Seize Rare Opportunity to Pray

Muslim Brotherhood Leads Calls for "Intifada" Against Israel

by IPT News  •  Jul 17, 2017 The Muslim Brotherhood called for an "Islamic Intifada" – a violent uprising – against Israel Friday following the day's deadly Palestinian terrorist attack in Jerusalem.

"The Muslim Brotherhood calls upon the sons of the Islamic Umma (nation), its Ulema (Muslim religious scholars), figures and blocs for an Intifada in order to stop the (alleged Israeli) violations of holy sites...," the Brotherhood wrote on its official Arabic-language website and translated by the Investigative Project on Terrorism (IPT).

From Israel: Terror and the Temple Mount.

...The Mount was closed on Friday for security reasons – including an extensive search for additional weapons and an investigation into possible assistance the terrorists had from inside the Mount. Friday is the Muslim sabbath and many come to the Mount to pray; the site remained closed over Shabbat.

While partial closures do occur, this total closure was considered unprecedented, not having happened since 1969.
...I rather liked what Minister Miri Regev (Likud) had to say (emphasis added):

"The murderous terror attack which occurred today…forces us to examine thoroughly the Temple Mount's status quo.
...President Trump released a similar statement about terrorism the next day; he even supported Israel's move to temporarily close the Mount and urged Muslim nations to be patient. I saw this as a welcome show of support for us. Additionally, however, and totally predictably, he "applauded" the decision to retain the status quo. What else would he be expected to say?

US Ambassador to Israel: Terrorism must be condemned, defeated
US Ambassador to Israel David Friedman says terrorism must be 'defeated,' expresses shock at terror attack.

Palestinian Media Watch. Fatah Facebook rebroadcasts Abbas` call to prevent Jews "in any way" from "defiling our holy places"

Abbas: "We must all carry out Ribat [religious conflict] in the Al-Aqsa Mosque... We have to prevent them, in any way whatsoever, from entering the Sanctuary... They have no right to enter it. They have no right to defile it. We must prevent them. Let us stand before them with chests bared to protect our holy places."
