Jordanian Parliament Praises Temple Mount Terror Attack
TEL AVIV – The Jordanian parliament on Sunday praised the terrorists responsible for Friday’s Temple Mount attack less than 24 hours after King Abdullah II condemned the attack in a call to Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.
According to Jordanian media reports, the parliament slammed Israel for closing the Temple Mount following the murder of two Israeli policemen, and prayed for the souls of the three Arab-Israeli gunmen who carried out the attack.
“May the mercy of Allah be upon our martyrs who sowed and watered the pure land,”saidParliament Speaker Atef Tarawneh. “We will raise our heads through the sacrifice of the young Palestinians who are still fighting in the name of the nation.”
He continued by blessing the families of the three cousins from the Arab-Israeli town of Umm al-Fahm, Muhammad Ahmed Muhammad Jabarin, 29; Muhammad Hamad Abdel Latif Jabarin, 19 and Muhammad Ahmed Mafdal Jabarin, 19, who carried out the attack.
“May Allah have mercy on our young people, members of the Jabarin family, whose family members deserve to receive glory and honor,” he said.
The speaker of the Jordanian House of Representatives added that the attack was justified, and that Israel and the “occupation” of Jerusalem were to blame. READ MORE
