I am no longer surprised at the stupidity and willingly to convince the world every lie about Israel they can think of. Whether it is aphrodisiac gum, stolen human organs, or the use of chemical weapons. Today the latest Junk Science Claim is a doozy! The Israelis can manufacture Earthquakes. Earthquakes powerful enough to destroy the Al-Aqsa Mosque.
Ismail Radwan, Minister of Religious Affairs in Gaza's Hamas government, claims that Israel is trying to cause an artificial earthquake to totally collapse the Al-Aqsa Mosque on the Temple Mount in Jerusalem. According to Radwan, Israel is attempting to do so to establish the Third Temple.The fact is that Israel is on the tail end of the Great Rift Valley. The Israel Plate is grinding along the Arabian Plate. Sooner or later there WILL be a major (6+ or above) earthquake. With all the digging under the Dome of the Rock and Al-Aqsa Mosque done by the Muslims, I would be very surprised if they didn't collapse upon themselves. One could then say it was the Hand of G-d. And it would be.
The comments came at an event organized by female students of the College for Professional Applied Sciences. In response to the supposed "earthquake attack," Radwan called for a general national enlistment to the military, and to support the mosque by having fixed presence at the site.
Radwan said through repeated Jewish access to the Temple Mount, as well as "excavations and criminal acts," the Israeli "occupation" has "arrived at the stage of accustoming Palestinians, Arabs and Muslim to accept the existing reality so as to implement their goals to destroy the mosque and build the supposed Temple."
The minister blamed peace talks and security arrangements between Israel and the Palestinian Authority (PA) as providing cover for the "criminal acts" on the Temple Mount.
Regardless of Hamas's fantastic scenarios, Israel is facing a real earthquake danger. In October, the Home Front Minister MK Gilad Erdan (Likud) warned that a major earthquake is looming that could potentially kill 7,000 Israelis.
On a happier note, Israel is the first non-European nation to be granted full membership into CERN. The Fakistinians have not yet
