Since we're talking about Jerusalem - as in Israel - please allow me to repeat that headline.
"For no apparent reason, the Turkish government is building a 10 meter high wall along a section of the Old City wall."
OK, calm down.
I said....... CALM DOWN.
Aryeh King, Chairman of the Public Complaints Bureau in eastern Jerusalem, recently noticed signs in Turkish and English around a section of the Old City wall near the Lions' Gate. The signs proclaimed that a construction project was being carried out by Turkish governmental fund TIKA. Next to the signs, Arab workers were working on completing a huge 10 meter high wall around the Muslim cemetery there, and the wall is now virtually finished.
"Someone has gave the instruction to let the Turks and Arabs build, and the rest of the authorities are toeing the line," he said.
To be somewhat snarky, is that "someone" the same people always called "they" ?
Israel has lost whatever sanity remained. The fact even a one meter high was allowed to be constructed is beyond any comprehension I can muster. Ten meters ? That's over 33 feet high.
The wall is being built around a Muslim cemetery.
Hmmmmm.......... Come to think of it, maybe calming down isn't such a good idea right now.
Personally, I take this as an act of war by a sovereign nation against another......... It wouldn't shock me at all if IDF was ordered into that location and to not stop partying until the highest item is something close to an ant hill.
I'd also seriously consider expelling every single Turkish official from Israel - no questions - 24 hours - get out.
Then I'd get angry.
By the way, on a completely different item and if you don't remember, The Flag Of 'Palestine' is flying in Washington DC.
Here's part of a post I ran up last week............
The Jihadist At 1600, Cass Sunstein, Hillary Clinton, Harold Koh and Samantha Power strike again.
The United States State Department has announced to the Palestinian Authority/Palestinian Liberation Organization Mission representative in the United States that its status will be upgraded from a 'bureau' to that of a "general delegation' and that this change will allow the office in which the representation is situated to fly the PLO, now also the Palestine Authority, flag at its entrance.
The upgrading, besides allowing the flag to be flown, also grants certain privileges to the delegation staff, such as diplomatic immunity, although it is not equal to embassy status.
Y'all need to show this article to all American Jews who campaigned and voted for their own annihilation. If they still don't "get it", just walk away from them forever.
Also, someone please let me know when it's ok to formally charge every single person in the current administration with treason, sedition, aiding and abetting a documented enemy, etc.
Until then, I'll be at the range or 'toy shopping'.
Everything I need to know about Islam I learned at the age of thirteen on September 5th 1972.
