Palestinian Authority Leader Mahmoud Abbas

(Worthy News) - Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas spoke by phone late Thursday with Jared Kushner, senior adviser to US President Donald Trump, reportedly to ask that the White House pressure Israel to remove metal detectors installed at the Temple Mount following last Friday’s deadly terror attack.

According to Hebrew-language media, Abbas told Kushner that tensions over the holy site were a serious concern, and threatened to get out of control if Israel did not back down.

Abbas held emergency meetings with senior members of his Fatah party on Friday to discuss the escalating tensions. The meetings with the PLO Executive Committee and the Fatah Central Committee were intended to decide on the Palestinian response to Israel’s decision early Friday to leave the metal detectors in place on the Temple Mount despite Palestinian protests.

  1. Why does anyone need to bring in metal to the Temple Mount? What has metal in it (besides arms for duly authorized military personnel) that's needed at the mosque there? Or is this question exposing the folly of anyone even arguing about it? It's not people they are keeping out, nor ending services (though I think allowing it to continue the main issue). Why would Jared, an Orthodox Jew, even consider Abbas request? Why would Abbas even think Jared would consider doing so? None of the foolishness of all this makes any sense. Except for the part where metal detectors have been put into place there. Better late then never. The over-reaction of Muslims (just like this) in that part of the Land there is an inevitability. Israel either deals effectively, like with metal detectors, now or later.
