The latest Temple Mount rioting during Rosh Hashanah has demonstrated once again that Muslim holy places are regularly used in service to militant Islam.

The cinder blocks and rocks piled up inside the Al Aqsa Mosque (Islam’s third holiest site) that turned prayer carpets into filthy rugs are a vivid reminder of the stark differences between the Muslim and Christian concepts of the sacred. From a Muslim point of view, dirty carpets are a small price to pay in the heroic effort to protect the holy place from the much greater filth of infidels. Continue Reading »

By  Israel Today Staff


Following Monday’s deadly terror stabbings, Western leaders engaged in the Israeli-Palestinian peace process were quick to issue statements of condemnation, though their substance was disparate, and very telling as to whom Jerusalem could truly count on to understand its security needs.

The knife used in Monday’s stabbing attack in Judea, in which a young Jewish woman was killed and two others were wounded.
