This will reinforce the jihadist idea that any land that has once belonged to the House of Islam must always by right belong to it. Of course, that applies not only to Israel, but to Spain and large tracts of Eastern Europe. From the Jerusalem Post, with thanks to Kemaste:
The Arab chairman of a committee which serves as a
go-between between Jerusalem police and Arab residents of east Jerusalem is selling burial plots to Muslims just outside the Temple Mount in contravention of the law which classifies the area as state archaeological grounds, a prominent right-wing activist who has taken the state to court said Thursday.
The area in question lies adjacent to the southeastern corner of the Temple Mount, where Jordanian engineers are at carrying out repair work on the 2,000-year-old wall, in the direction of the walled-up Golden Gate, where Jewish tradition holds the messiah will enter.
With burial space fast running out at the nearby ancient Muslim cemetery, Arab residents have, over the last year and a half, begun encroaching on the new site to be used for burial.
