Jordan warns against Israeli measures to Judaise Jerusalem
— His Majesty King Abdullah on Wednesday warned against Israel’s unilateral measures to Judaise Jerusalem, which he said threaten the Islamic and Christian heritage in the city.
He made the remarks during a meeting with Patriarch of Moscow and All Russia Kirill I and an accompanying delegation visiting Jordan as part of a regional tour.
His Majesty underlined the role the Russian church can play in protecting Jerusalem against Israeli policies meant to undermine the authentic identity of the holy city.
The King and the patriarch emphasised the importance of tolerance and dialogue between followers of different religions, which contributes to a message of peace and love all around the world.
The Russian patriarch praised Jordan’s role in protecting the Islamic and Christian holy sites in Jerusalem.
He described Jordan as a model for co-existence and dialogue between religions, valuing the stability and security of the Kingdom.
Patriarch of the Orthodox Church of Jerusalem, Patriarch of the Holy City of Jerusalem and All Palestine Theophilus III and director of the King’s Office Imad Fakhoury attended the meeting.
His Majesty said that the Russian Pilgrims’ House at the Baptism Site strengthens the relations between the two countries, especially when it comes to religious tourism.

It is interesting that the Muslims in Jordan feel Israel is falsifying the history.
Like the claim that Israel:
….undermine the authentic identity of the holy city.
Let it be crystal clear:
It was Jordan who occupied East Jerusalem from 1948 to 1967. During this occupation, Jordan did not only refuse to protect the holy sites of Judaism. The criminals who entered the city destroyed and burned more than 50 ancient synagogues.
In regards to the “authentic identity of Jerusalem”, this city was founded more than 1.500 years before there ever was a religion named Islam.
The Jewish people built this city, and they are the only true caretakers. And they do their job with sincerity and respect for people who are born into other religions. Muslims are free to worship in their Mosques and shrines, and so are Christians and Roman Catholics.
Comfort, comfort my people, says your God. Speak tenderly to Jerusalem, and proclaim to her that her hard service has been completed, that her sin has been paid for, that she has received from the Lord’s hand double for all her sins.
Evangelical friends of Israel have absolutely no problem with the Jewish control of Jerusalem. We who believe in Jesus the Messiah proclaim He liberated the city in 1967. The Jews were given the task of being good and fair caretaker of Jerusalem more than 3.000 years ago.
King Abdullah of Jordan had a choice. He could stand up for the truth, or he could distribute Islamic lies. He has chosen to tell lies, in a bid to save his kingdom from facing a take over by Islamic Jihad or the Muslim Brotherhood.
Some antichrists in the claimed to be “Christian family” has decided to join the falsehood of the King of Jordan.
