Zionist terrorists storm al-Aqsa Mosque as Muslim worshippers locked inside
Zionist terrorists stormed Al-Aqsa Mosque earlier today and later marched through Al-Quds/Jerusalem shouting “Death to Arabs”.
A howling mob of several hundred zionists, protected by heavily-armed Israeli police, illegally stormed the Aqsa Compound while zionist occupation forces locked up Muslim worshippers inside the Masjid.
This was done to prevent the Palestinian worshippers from challenging the zionist thugs that were illegally trespassing on the sacred site.
A splinter group of the zionist mob also started waving flags inside Al-Aqsa Mosque.
Others prayed at the mosque compound in violation of a longstanding agreement in place since 1967.
Following these provocative and aggressive acts of vandalism and desecration, thousands of zionists stormed the Damascus Gate in occupied East Jerusalem.
What is referred to as the ‘flag march’, is held to mark Israel’s occupation of eastern part of the city in 1967.
It was under Jordan’s control but Jordanian troops fled without putting up a fight to defend the holy city that houses the Holy Sanctuary.
The zionist regime has illegally occupied the entire city and calls it its capital.
This is not internationally recognized but no western regime has confronted the zionists’ illegal encroachment and occupation.
As the zionist mob marched through the Old City shouting “Death to Arabs”, it also assaulted Palestinians.
Aida Saidawi, in her 50s, and an Old City resident and activist, was attacked by the zionists.
She was also pepper-sprayed resulting in her being taken to hospital for treatment.
Enraged by the zionist mob attacks, the Palestinians were forced to react.
With their bare hands they tried to prevent the zionists from attacking the unarmed and defenceless Palestinian civilians but they were no match for the thugs and their heavily-armed police contingent supporting them.
At least 15 Palestinians were wounded in Al-Quds/Jerusalem (Old City) and the surrounding area, the Palestine Red Crescent Society (PRCS) said.
The Zionist occupiers also used tear gas against Palestinians both at the Aqsa compound as well as in the streets of the Old City.
The zionists also tried to prevent journalists from video recording these attacks on Palestinians.
Videos showed the zionist mob obstructing journalists in Al-Quds and clashing with Palestinians.
The PRCS reported that its medics were assaulted by police near the Damascus Gate while they attempted to reach the wounded.
On May 11, Al Jazeera journalist Shireen Abu Akleh was specifically targeted and shot and killed outside Jenin.
Even her funeral procession was attacked resulting in her casket nearly falling to the ground.
The repeated zionist attacks and illegal encroachment on Al Aqsa Compound are meant to normalize such activities.
This part of their policy of creeping annexation.
It must be resisted not only by Palestinians but by all Muslims and indeed all justice-loving people everywhere.

Sunday, June 5, 2022, Islamic terrorists stormed the St. Francis Catholic Church in Ondo, Nigeria, and massacred more than 50 Christians who were otherwise peacefully worshipping their God. Videos, according to one report, “showed church worshippers lying in pools of blood while people around them wailed.”
As terrible as this massacre might seem, it is just the proverbial “tip of the iceberg”: over the years, Muslims have assaulted, shot up, or torched countless churches in Nigeria. Below are just three other examples:
– Easter Sunday, Apr. 20, 2014: Islamic terrorists torched a packed church; 150 Christians were killed and countless injured.
– Easter Sunday, Apr. 8, 2012: explosives planted by Muslims detonated near two packed churches; more than 50 Christians were killed and unknown numbers injured.
– Christmas Day, Dec. 25, 2011: Muslim terrorists shot up and bombed three churches; 37 Christians were killed, 57 injured.
The Christians of Nigeria are, in fact, being purged in a genocide, according to several NGOs (here and here, for instance). One Christian is killed every two hours in Nigeria.

Where is your outcry Kevin Barrett?????
“It must be resisted not only by Nigerians but by all Christians and indeed all justice-loving people everywhere.”
No surprise here…muslims playing the “victim card” with a few ad hominem attacks thrown in for good measure!
The trick is to condition the populace to disempower itself, done through education and propaganda- as in America.
The So-called israelis know not but their Terrorism in Palestine shows that they have God’s Wrath upon them. Their actions do not show their courage or their might ( the might comes from the whole of the West’s military power standing behind them ). It clearly shows that the Almighty has turned them into evil beasts. And that is the God’s Wrath. They will be gone sooner or later. They will be a footnote in the history of Palestine which suffered no less under the Crusadders’ Cruelty than they are suffering now. Palestinians exist but Crusaders are remembered as a passing plague.
This is a direct result of Trump making Jerusalem the capital of Israel. This may not have happened if the capital was still Tel Aviv.
Imagine if he was able to cheat his way into a second term, he would have allowed the capital of Israel to be 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue instead of 251 H St NW, Washington DC.
Trump moved the capital to Jerusalem to appease the 40 million or so US Christian Zionists who voted for him in 2016. They have been conned into thinking that the European Ashkenazim who now brutally occupy Palestine are the God’s chosen ones. Each year they throw millions of dollars at Likud to further the illegal occupation. They look to a catastrophic nuclear war with Russia as the beginning of their crazy end-times eschatology.
I agree that Trump moved the capital to Jerusalem to appease the 40 million or so US Christian Zionists but his ulterior motive was to mainly to be a faithful servant of Israel and seal being re-elected in 2020. The same for declaring Syria’s Golan Heights stolen by Israel in 1967 to be Israel’s; his anti-Palestine “Deal of the Century” followed by his and Kushner’s anti-Palestine Abraham Accords.
Trump’s fatal error, I believe, was saying “Hitler did a lot of good things” during a WW1 commemoration in Europe in early 2020.
No politician, even the POTUS, can expect to be elected or re-elected if they say anything good about Hitler.
That’s a good one. But unfortunately, Joe “I am a Zionist” Biden has, I believe, surpassed Trump in his devotion to Israel. Biden and his entire administration were chosen by the MarxistZionists, not the other way around.
So with Biden being the present Uncle Sam the capital of Israel does seem to be 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.
