Taking their misinterpretation of international law to new heights, the Arab League this week accused the Jews of Israel of violating the rules that govern global behavior by praying atop Jerusalem’s Temple Mount.
The incident occurred on Sunday, when the head of the Temple Institute led a small group of Jewish tourists atop the Temple Mount. Israeli police at the site forbid non-Muslims from praying there or making any kind of outward religious gestures, such as kneeling or bowing.
But the Temple Institute told Israel National News that the group managed to hold a very brief prayer session without being detected.
After reading about the Jewish prayers at Judaism’s holiest site, Arab League Secretary-General Amr Moussa called them «a serious blow to the holiness of the site»
Moussa insisted that under international law, Jews and Christians are forbidden from praying atop the Muslim-controlled Temple Mount.

«Obama to armbush Israel on UN opening»
President Obama is set to demand that Israel give up sovereignty over Jerusalem, abandon settlements, and recognize a terrorist state on the West Bank.
Several sources have informed One Jerusalem that the Obama Administration is planning to significantly step up the pressure on Israel by announcing a comprehensive plan for Israel and the Palestinians at the opening of the United Nations General in September.
The first sign that something was up came when Egyptian President Mubarak said that the Obama Administration was ready to propose a plan in September. The White House rushed to dampen expectations by declaring that they are nowhere near to readying a plan.
