Netanyahu is also expected to demand that the Palestinian Authority cease its incitement against Israel, and especially the “lies the PA is spreading about Israeli intentions on the Temple Mount,” the sources said.
Third Temple on the Temple Mount ~ link ~ This isn’t the real lost ark,” he says. “The real one is hidden about a kilometre from here, in underground chambers created during the time of Solomon.” I look at him askance. “It’s true,” he says. “Jews have an unbroken chain of recorded information, passed down from generation to generation, which indicates its exact location. There is a big fascination with finding the lost ark, but nobody asked a Jew. We have known where it is for thousands of years. It could be reached if we excavated Temple Mount, but that area is controlled by Muslims.”
Police have resorted to putting up barriers toward the entrance to the Temple Mount, Channel 2 reports Monday, to help combat the constant rain of rocks and firecrackers being lobbed at security forces at Judaism's holiest site.
Early Monday, dozens of terrorists barricaded themselves on the Mount to attack police, ahead of expected riots in honor of the Sukkot holiday.

The Institute, based in the Old City of Jerusalem, announced it has finished building an altar that is essentially “ready for use” in sacrificial services.
Muslim Firebombers Attack Police on the Temple Mount ~ link ~
New clashes broke out Monday between Muslim extremists and Israeli police on the Temple Mount, as Islamist groups mobilized to prevent an expected increase in Jewish visitors to the site over the Sukkot holiday.
Police fired tear gas and stun grenades while rioting Arab youths who had pledged a day earlier to "defend" the Al-Aqsa Mosque threw rocks and firebombs before barricading themselves inside the mosque itself.
Palestinians feel they have Nothing Left to Lose ~ link ~ Even when they don’t agree with stone throwing, Palestinians in East Jerusalem say their existence is constantly under threat.
King Abdullah of Jordan 'Threatens Israel' over the Temple Mount ~ link ~
Abdullah was speaking at the new session of the United Nations General Assembly Monday.
Rioting in Jerusalem which broke out several weeks ago – on the eve of Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish New Year, and has continued since then – is the fault of Israel, Abdullah has reiterated several times in recent weeks. Last week, Jordanian Information Minister Mohammed Momani said that his government condemns the assault carried out by special forces of the Israeli occupation army against the Al-Aqsa mosque compound. He accused Israel of "provocations" and "attempts to change the status quo" at Judaism's holiest site.
Jordan cannot remain idle on the Temple Mount and Jerusalem ~ link ~ The question that always resurfaces when there is a new assault by Israeli extremists on Al-Aqsa compound is: What can Jordan, custodian of Jerusalem’s Muslim holy sites, do to stop Jewish settlers’ frequent incursions into the third holiest site in Islam?

Attacking Muslim worshipers, firing noxious tear gas, rubber-coated steel bullets and stun grenades, again on Sunday, following previous days of violence and chaos, willfully causing damage, injuring numerous Palestinians threatening no one.
Praying at Al-Aqsa is hazardous. Israel made it a near-free-fire zone. Not a word from Washington or other Western capitals denouncing its war on holy ground – the ruthless policy of a racist state.
Murabitoun Al-Aqsa worshiper movement head Yousef Mukhaimar said “Netanyahu’s strategy is fulfilling his promises to his right-wing and extremist supporters to eventually demolish Al-Aqsa and build their alleged temple in its place.”
Israel's High-Stakes Strategy on the Temple Mount and why Netanyahu may prevail ~ link ~ Over the years, the strategic settlement growth was complemented by the religiously motivated expansion, championed by a vibrant movement, exemplified in the founding of “Gush Emunim” (Bloc of the Faithful) in 1974. Its mission was to settle legions of fundamentalists on the West Bank.
Little has changed since, save the fact that the current Israeli Government is a government of settlers, who are not engaged in a symbiotic relationship with the Government but who dominate a political establishment that is teeming with zealots and fanatics, relentless on changing the status quo in Jerusalem, starting with Haram al-Sharif, or the “Noble Sanctuary”.
Haram al-Sharif is one of the holiest Islamic sites, but this is not just about religion. Israeli politicians have been “debating” the status of Haram al-Sharif for many months, as right-wing, religious and ultra-nationalists elements are advocating the complete appropriation of the al-Aqsa Mosque (situated in Haram al-Sharif), currently under the management of the Islamic Trust (known as “Waqf”.)
Holy Site Clashes ~ link ~ Right-wing Jewish organizations have reportedly called on Jews to visit the compound in coming days, while Palestinian leaders in Israel have called on Palestinians to “protect” the mosque compound “in masses”.
Police enter the Temple Mount after the Palestinians in the Aksa Mosque throw firebombs and stones ~ link
Explosive Declaration of Sovereignty ~ link ~ Ariel, the Israeli Minister of Agriculture, intended to provoke a firestorm when he led 30 extremist Israeli settlers into the Haram al-Sharif, the third-holiest site in Islam.
We simply can’t underestimate the emotional and religious importance this place holds to all three religions and how dangerous such a provocation is. It has the potential to inflame emotions across the globe, which underscores the imperative to maintain the status quo at the compound that has been agreed to.
When Ariel resolutely defied the status quo by entering the compound, he knew all hell would break loose, and that was his intention. This is a man who two years ago called for the building of a third Jewish temple there, and who advocates for the temple to be built on the ruins of the Al-Aqsa mosque.
Israel okays Live Fire on stone throwers ~ link ~ Occupied Jerusalem: The Israeli regime on Thursday approved harsher measures to combat the practice of stone-throwing, widening the rules of engagement for occupation police and vowing to raise minimum penalties for offenders to four years’ imprisonment.
The measures, approved by the Security Cabinet, allow police officers to fire live ammunition when there is an “immediate and concrete danger to police or civilians,” according to a government statement.
