57 Muslim States are trying to stop the archaeological digging near the Temple Mount.


A group of 57 Muslim countries meeting in Jeddah has agreed to step up pressure and try to force Israel to stop archaeological digging near the Temple Mount. The Organization of Islamic Countries (OIC) continued to accuse Israel of endangering the Al Aksa mosque on the holy site.

"In light of the positive developments in Palestine and formation of the national unity government, the international embargo against Palestinians has no justification," said Ekmel Al Deen Ihsanoglu, Secretary-General of the OIC.

He called on the 57-member states to provide financial and moral support to Jerusalem Arabs and the Palestinian Authority (PA).


Wow, well that's all very interesting but whilst we've got 57 Muslim Member states of the OIC desperately trying to inflame a situation that has no real basis in truth, do you think Arutz Sheva INN might just be able to stick to facts in its headline?

You see, these events are all about semantics, about trying to get the rest of the non Islamic world to start believing that what is clearly out side of the Temple Mount is now inside the Temple Mount.

It's a disgrace that the editor of I.N.N ran with this headline.

But whilst we're on the subject of antiquities and sacred religious items, it would seem there has been a rather large paramount shift by the OIC Islamic member nations.

They now believe in the sanctity of religious and cultural heritage. Which is all very fine, if the world can find anything non Islamic they haven't already, bulldozed, blown up or set on fire.
