The Islamic movements demonstrated on the Temple Mount yesterday following the wave of terror in France last week, but the demonstration was not protesting the attacks themselves, rather the Western world, who according to them, has started an attack on Islam.
During the protest, which was organized by Hamas and another movement called Hizb-a-Tahrir, protestors burnt the French flag, and waved green Hamas flags and other flags of the Islamic movement.
Hundreds of protestors arrived and called the Palestinian Authority “the authority of spies”, and yelled vulgar insults about the chairman of the Authority, Mahmoud Abbas, because of his participation, along with 40 other world leaders, in the protest march in Paris at the beginning of the week.
This is the first time that such activity protesting the Palestinian Authority has taken place on the Temple Mount.
