PA, Islamists Push Blood Libel Against Israel
One of the most enduring anti-Israel slanders is the charge that it is persecuting non-Jews and destroying Muslim and Christian holy sites. These dubious claims continue to be made not only by international organizations, but by U.S. groups like American Muslims for Palestine (AMP) and the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR).
Coming at a time when Christians are under direct attack from Muslims in Egypt, Nigeria and in other Muslim states, promulgating such fantasies serves only to incite hatred and violence against Jews.
Palestinian Muslims and Christians "are living basically in an outdoor prison, in refugee camps," CAIR-Michigan Executive Director Dawud Walid said in a May speech to the Islamic Organization of North America. "Al-Masjid al-Aqsa is our property for us to defend. This is the land that Allah guided us to … and it should be free" (i.e., not under Israeli jurisdiction).
