Declaration of War from Hamas over Fixing Mughrabi Bridge

Nadene Goldfoot
The Muslim Brotherhood's main leader, Sheik Yusuf al-Qaradawi, is a Theologian against Jews.  He can't wait to take over "Al Aqsa" in Jerusalem.  This is the mosque that Muslims have built over the Temple Mount which was an important part of our Jewish history.  This has happened in other parts of the world as well.  They build over some aspect of the conquered culture to say that it now belongs to them.

There is a temporary wooden walkway called the Mughrabi Bridge that Israel has wanted to close temporarily to repair it, or there are going to be injuries involved.  Hamas is having a fit over it.  They have warned that if Israel closes this to the Temple Mount it is tantamount to a "declaration of war" on all Muslim holy sites.  They neglect to tell whoever is listening that they have already been doing just such a thing to Jewish holy sites that I have been writing about. 

"This is a serious step that shows the Zionist scheme of aggression against al-Aksa mosque," Fawzi Barhum of Hamas said.  Israel closed it on Sunday for these safety issues.  The original ramp was made of earth which led to the Mughrabi Gate.  It collapsed in 2004 in a snowstorm, which is fairly rare in Jerusalem.  The bridge is also highly flammable.  This situation is bringing protests from Egypt.  I guess they'd rather see it collapse with people on it.  Netanyahu has postponed this decision but cannot any longer.  It's imperative that it be fixed now. 

"The dispute over the bridge has now become a key issue in Egypt's elections. The Muslim Brotherhood's spiritual leader, Sheikh Yusuf Qaradawi, called last week on Jordanian King Abdullah to dissuade Israel from replacing the ramp."

Update: 7pm Yahoo added that it will be repaired in a few days time.  It's the only access for non-Muslims, which would be Jews and tourists.  The ramp starts at the plaza by the Western Wall.  There are other ways to enter besides this one.  "Amman has frequently spoken out against removal of the ramp, which is one of the 15 gates leading into the Al-Aqsa mosque compound, 10 of which are in use.  Amman, Jordan, who has the responsibility for Muslim holy sites' upkeep, has often spoken out about this gate's removal.  It is one of 15 gates, 10 of which are in use.  I don't know why all the ballyhoo about this particular one.
