Israel closes Al-Aqsa mosque citing security, says it will reopen Friday

Israel shut down the Al-Aqsa mosque on Thursday, Islam's third holiest site. The closure set off a wave of condemnation in the Arab world and provoked threats of violent confrontation. CCTV America's Stephanie Freid reports.

Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas described Israel’s Thursday shut down as “a declaration of war. ”

Such a move hasn’t been made in 14 years. The action was prompted by an attempted drive-by assassination of an Israeli right-wing activist by a Palestinian a day earlier. The would-be assassin was later killed in a strike by Israeli forces.

The closure is being viewed in the Arab world as an aggressive move by Israel and an attempted takeover of the mosque. Despite the closure, Jewish settlers also attempted to storm it Thursday.

Al-Aqsa will reopen to worshippers Friday, but that has yet to appease Palestinian leaders who fear more shutdowns in the future and are calling for immediate international intervention in the matter.

Palestinian leaders accuse Israel of trying to ‘Judaize’ all of Jerusalem and are calling on the Palestinian people to come to the city to defend the mosque on Friday.

  • How could anyone still have a doubt? The media definition of “conspiracy theory” is only there to discredit what is already in front of your eyes. TV and newspapers will never tell you that the airplanes crashed on 9/11 were highjack with a new technology and flown via remote control (Dov Zakheim’s Flight Termination System) and it was instead the Israeli Mossad to place the explosives that brought down the twin towers and building 7 in New York. What you see between Israel and Palestine is the gauge to visualize what is in store for everyone. Israel was a concept before it became a State and today is a State like no other. In fact it is the only Country in the World that has never defined its borders since its Declaration of Independence and now is ready to expand its territory through the use of any means. The Zionists and their Plan will have the US forces to fight a World War in place of Israel.
    This next conflict will find Israel against any form of Equality and in a prospective that sees the World from the top of a virtual Pyramid.
    Unquestionably this culture is Equality’s ultimate enemy.
    And precisely from here it is the Solution to the Conflict
