JNS.orgPalestinians burned the French flag in protest of the new cover of the French satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo on Friday.

Several hundred Palestinian protesters gathered on the Temple Mount during prayer services on to demonstrate against the magazine’s decision to publish an image of the Prophet Mohammed on its Jan. 14 cover.

In a video, the protesters can be seen waving the Hamas flag and other Islamic flags while chanting “jihad, jihad, we will die in the name of God,” “Allahu Akbar,” and “Muhammad [is] our master and leader forever” as they set fire to the French flag.

On the cover of its Jan. 14 edition, Charlie Hebdo featured a cartoon of Mohammed holding a sign saying, “Je Suis Charlie” (I am Charlie), with a headline above the cartoon reading, “Tout Est Pardonne” (All Is Forgiven).

Protests also occurred in several other Arab countries on Friday, including in Jordan, whose King Abdullah traveled to France to march with French President Francois Hollande during the Jan. 11 anti-terror rally in Paris.

  • In the UNSC France broke with the USA, UK and Canada and voted for the Palestinian resolution — and this is the ‘hakoras ha’tov’ [gratitude] France gets from the Palestinians! Even to this day they never lose an opportunity . . . .

    Give a fool a match and he lives up to his expectations.

  • Its nice to know that the grounds of the Al Aqsa mosque, Islams 3rd “holiest site”, has so many diverse uses.

    We can now add flag burning and death chants to the long list which includes, praying, picnics, soccer games, riots, violence and incitement, rock throwing, tourism, and picture taking, etc.

    Those pseudo Palestinians sure know how to win friends and influence people.

    Keep it up guys.
    There may yet be a use for you in this world.

  • Your master Muhammad is violent…not like other prophet will not turn their hatred to those do not understand what they are doing..

  • Jordan is Arab-Palestine – The autonomous Jewish nation was in Jordan as much as in Israel
    In fact, Jewish sovereignty STARTED in Jordan over 4 millennia ago, with defeat of Amorites under Moses’ lead! The tribe of Reuven, Gad and half of Menasheh were the FIRST to have designated land! Only later, when Moses passed away did Joshua lead the rest of the Israelites into Canaan and conquered the area.
    What we today call Jordan was ours, as a people, BEFORE what we today call Israel!

    Even in the 2nd commonwealth. The Jewish sovereign kingdom under the Hasmoneans included all the inhabitable area of today’s “Jordan”.
    Jordan is “Palestine” as much as Israel can be claimed to be.
    As for options, though none are necessarily easy, “outcome thesis” of not preserving the “status quo” has to be a population transfer, as much as people like to shy away from it. The Arab countries have expelled over a million Jews, confiscated their assets, businesses, homes and land “5-6 times the size of Israel, valued in the trillions of dollars. Israel has taken the responsibility and settled the million expelled Jews from Arab countries. It is time for the Arab countries to settle the Arab-Palestinian on lands they confiscated from the million Jewish people and or settle them in Jordan – which was part of Israel.
    1) the world pressure for Israel to be 8-15 miles wide is increasing
    2) we know what happens when Arabs, er, “Palestinians” have Israel leave. Gaza.
    Jordan IS Palestine. It is 78% of the British Palestine Mandate, its population is 80% Palestinian, and its numerically insignificant royal family are British imports from another area entirely (modern day Saudi Arabia – which used to have a large Jewish population), circa 1920.
    Israel can not be 8 miles wide. If Palestine/Jordan wants to be antagonistic they will reap what they sow. Its time for the weakness of 20 centuries of ghetto living, to come out of the Jew. When this is done we will be alright, with the Almighty’s help.

    P.S. How many holidays do the Arabs celebrate due to historical events in the land of ancient Israel. The Jewish people celebrate most of their holidays and fast days in memory of and the goal and aspiration to return to Israel and rebuild the Temple in Jerusalem – where it was before it was destroyed and desecrated by the enemies of the Jews. Many of the Jewish prayers for thousands of years recite the love of Israel and the Jewish aspirations to return to their ancestral land and bring back its glory and holiness.
