Transparency Palestinian Style

Last year I noted a plan being advanced for 247 cam­eras at the Tem­ple Mount in order to sub­stan­ti­ate Pales­tin­ian claims of Israel vio­lat­ing agree­ments con­cern­ing it which the Jor­da­ni­ans, John Kerry and the Israelis agreed.

How­ever for some rea­son our peace­ful Pales­tin­ian who have been accus­ing Israel of mis­deeds objected even though such cam­eras would allow any Jews vio­lat­ing said agree­ments to be caught in the act.

Of course the ques­tion was exactly who would be caught in what acts?

Another rea­son the Pales­tini­ans are opposed to King Abdullah’s idea is their fear that the cam­eras would expose that Pales­tini­ans have been smug­gling stones, fire­bombs and pipe bombs into Al-​Aqsa Mosque for the past two years. These are scenes at the PA, Hamas and the Islamic Move­ment do not want the world to see: they show who is really “con­t­a­m­i­nat­ing” the Haram al-​Sharif. Need­less to say, no Jew­ish vis­i­tors have thus far been caught try­ing to smug­gle such weapons into the holy site.

Well five months later the final ver­dict is in:

Fol­low­ing fierce pales­tin­ian protests and threats, Jor­dan said on Mon­day that it has aban­doned its plan to install secu­rity cam­eras on the Tem­ple Mount.

The deci­sion was announced by Jor­dan­ian Prime Min­is­ter Abdul­lah Ensour.

The secu­rity cam­eras were sup­posed to be installed on the Tem­ple Mount in accor­dance with an agree­ment reached late last year between Israel and Jor­dan under the aus­pices of US Sec­re­tary of State John Kerry.

Appar­ently the Pales­tini­ans were so opposed to cam­eras record­ing all the evil actions of Israelis and the peace­ful non threat­en­ing nature of Pales­tin­ian actions at the tem­ple mount that they dis­trib­uted leaflets urg­ing Pales­tini­ans to break the cam­eras if installed.

One might be shocked at the lack of trans­parency on the part of the Pales­tini­ans, of course that’s because I find their actions trans­par­ent in the extreme.

Last year I noted a plan being advanced for 24/7 cameras at the Temple Mount in order to substantiate Palestinian claims of Israel violating agreements concerning it which the Jordanians, John Kerry and the Israelis agreed.

However for some reason our peaceful Palestinian who have been accusing Israel of misdeeds objected even though such cameras would allow any Jews violating said agreements to be caught in the act.

Of course the question was exactly who would be caught in what acts?

Another reason the Palestinians are opposed to King Abdullah’s idea is their fear that the cameras would expose that Palestinians have been smuggling stones, firebombs and pipe bombs into Al-Aqsa Mosque for the past two years. These are scenes at the PA, Hamas and the Islamic Movement do not want the world to see: they show who is really “contaminating” the Haram al-Sharif. Needless to say, no Jewish visitors have thus far been caught trying to smuggle such weapons into the holy site.

Well five months later the final verdict is in:

Following fierce palestinian protests and threats, Jordan said on Monday that it has abandoned its plan to install security cameras on the Temple Mount.

The decision was announced by Jordanian Prime Minister Abdullah Ensour.

The security cameras were supposed to be installed on the Temple Mount in accordance with an agreement reached late last year between Israel and Jordan under the auspices of US Secretary of State John Kerry.

Apparently the Palestinians were so opposed to cameras recording all the evil actions of Israelis and the peaceful non threatening nature of Palestinian actions at the temple mount that they distributed leaflets urging Palestinians to break the cameras if installed.

One might be shocked at the lack of transparency on the part of the Palestinians, of course that’s because I find their actions transparent in the extreme.
