Knesset candidate calls for bombing Aqsa Mosque's Dome of the Rock
Knesset candidate calls for bombing Aqsa Mosque's Dome of the Rock

NAZARETH, (PIC)-- A Knesset candidate from the Habayit Hayehudi (Jewish house) party called for blowing up the Aqsa Mosque's Dome of the Rock and building the alleged Jewish temple in its place.

According to Hatnua, a rival party, Habayit Hayehudi's candidate Jeremy Gimpel, publically discussed the destruction of the Dome of the Rock and its replacement with a Jewish temple, during a recent lecture he gave in Florida.

A video of the lecture was broadcast on the Israeli channel 2 on Friday. Gimpel is heard asking those attending the lecture to imagine a scenario in which the Dome of the Rock "was bombed" to make room for the alleged Jewish temple.

Hatnua party filed a petition with the central election committee to disqualify candidate Gimpel because his remarks on the Dome of the Rock could trigger widespread violence in the region.

In another incident, the Israeli newspaper Jerusalem said the Israeli municipal council issued last week demolition orders against two Palestinian Mosques in Tur town and Bab Al-Amoud neighborhood east of Jerusalem.

It added that that the orders were issued after Aryeh King, director of the Israel land fund and a noted right-wing figure, filed a complaint about the two Mosques.

The newspaper quoted Meir Margalit, head of the Israeli committee against house demolitions, as saying that this move is an attempt by the municipal council to ignite the middle east and please the Zionist right-wing forces and their supporters.
