Palestinians have allegedly damaged the Temple Mount and threw broken pieces of rock around the Temple Mount.
The Israel Hayom reports:
The Israel Antiquities Authority is considering removing Temple Mount antiquities that rioters have displaced. Rocks and pieces of smashed artifacts have been used as weapons during recent riots, and some were used to block visitors’ paths designated for Jews.
In a recent letter to Prime Minister Naftali Bennett, Education Minister Yifat Shasha-Biton, and Public Security Minister Omer Barlev, attorney and chairman of the Temple Mount Organizations Aviad Visoli claims that the destruction of antiquities on the Temple Mount was similar to the damage the Islamic State did to antiquities at Palmyra when they controlled the city during the Syrian war.
“What our people have seen following the riots on the Temple Mount on Friday and Saturday, April 15-16, 2022, was horrifying. The riots pulled out ancient stones, including sections of columns, and threw them around the Temple Mount,” the letter reads.
“Hundreds of antiquities were thrown on the eastern path of the Temple Mount toward the Dome of the Rock, with the purpose of blocking the path to religious Jewish visitors who visit the Mount and circle the Dome of the Rock,” it continues.
When ISIS was created under the Obama Administration, the Islamic group not only literally cut Americans’ heads off, but they also destroyed ancient buildings in their path. We reported on how ISIS destroyed the historic Arch de Triumph in ancient Palmyra.
The beautiful and magnificent 2,000-year-old arches were destroyed by ISIS in Syria.
