In response to an inquiry on sources (more regular than me) with which to keep
abreast of Palestine news, I recommended subscribing and reading Ali
Abunimah's prodigious output. As a sample, here is one of his latest
postings. His email and website address are appended. Good reading!
Forward from Ali Abunimah follows:
URGENT: JEWISH EXTREMIST GROUP TO MARCH ON AL-AQSA, LAY CORNER STONE FOR
October 13, 2000
The Temple Mount Faithful, an extremist Jewish group committed to
destroying the Aqsa Mosque and Dome of the Rock at the Haram al-Sharif
in Jerusalem has announced its intention to march on the Haram on
Monday and "lay the cornerstone" for a Third Jewish Temple.
The seriousness of this threat cannot be over stated. If Israel does
not prevent this action, as it is required to do as an Occupying
Power, it will solely bear the consequences, which could be
disasterous for everyone in the region.
The Temple Mount faithful connived with the Netanyahu government in
1996 to open a tunnel under the Al-Aqsa in 1996, sparking clashes
which killed over 60 Palestinians and 15 Israeli occupation soldiers.
United Nations Security Council Resolution 271 of September 15, 1969
passed in the wake of an arson attack on the Al-Aqsa Mosque by a
Jewish fanatic stated that, " that any act of destruction or
profanation of the Holy Places, religious buildings and sites in
Jerusalem or any encouragement of, or connivance at, any such act may
seriously endanger international peace and security," and condemned
the failure of Israel to protect the Holy Places as it is bound to do
under the Geneva Conventions.
The group claims that "The event has the approval of the Israeli
authorities and will be protected by the Israel security forces."
If Israel does act to prevent this, will they use live ammunition and
rockets against Jews, as they insist they must against Palestinians,
or are such measures only for Arabs?
Below, for reference, I have included the full text of the Temple
Mount Faithful Statement, and the text of UN Resolution 271.

Israel, the Chosen People of G-d, is now living in the most exciting
time in their history. These are the godly, prophetic end-times and
G-d is redeeming the people of Israel. The biggest dream and vision of
the G-d and people of Israel is becoming a reality in the great time
in which we are living in the sight of all nations.
Blessed are those whose hearts and eyes are open to understand and
accept what G-d is doing with Israel at this great time. When G-d said
to the nations "Love Me through My people, Israel", He knew how much
it would be need and especially in our time when Israel is again
surrounded by so many enemies who are trying to destroy this great
prophetic end-time dream and vision. Together with you we shall tell
them that they have no chance because only the G-d of Israel controls
the destiny of Israel and He is determined to accomplish His end-time
plans with the people and land of Israel and then with all the
nations. The foundation of the State of Israel in 1948 opened this
godly end-time scenario and prophesy became a reality, also when G-d
started to regather the Jewish people from all over the world to the
land which He gave to Israel in an eternal covenant. Now it is the
time to rebuild the House of G-d on the holy Temple Mount, the
location of the First and Second temples. G-d is ready for this and He
expects Israel to re-liberate the Temple Mount from the pagan Arab
worshippers and to rebuild His house to again be the heart, soul and
focus of Israel and all the nations. The Temple Mount and Land of
Israel Faithful Movement has decide to wait no more and to bring the
G-d of Israel back to His rebuilt house on Mt.Moriah in the midst of
the life of Israel and all the world and to make the word in Isaiah a
reality in our lifetime:
"And it shall come to pass in the last days, that the mountain of the
Lord's house shall be established on the top of the mountains, and
shall be exalted above the hills; and all nations shall flow to it.
And many people shall go and say, Come, and let us go up to the
mountain of the Lord, to the house of the God of Jacob; and he will
teach us of his ways, and we will walk in his paths; for from Zion
shall go forth Torah, and the word of the Lord from Jerusalem. And he
shall judge among the nations, and shall decide for many people; and
they shall beat their swords into plowshares, and their spears into
pruning hooks; nation shall not lift up sword against nation, nor
shall they learn war any more. O house of Jacob, come, and let us walk
in the light of the Lord." (Isaiah (2:2-5)
Come and see for yourself what G-d is doing with Israel at this great
time and be a part of this major vision and end-time event.
