I don’t think Hamas is the real problem here. Evangelicals of the Left Behind variety are the ones most likely to go berserk if Obama visits the Temple Mount:
Hamas is warning that if President Obama visits the Temple Mount it would be a “declaration of war” against the Islamic world. Israel National News reports the terror group made the threat during a protest march at the religious site following riots on Friday.
Mushir al-Masri, a Hamas spokesman, called for a third intifada if Obama visits the contested religious site in Jerusalem’s Old City between Israelis and Muslims.
Public Security Minister Yitzchak Aharonovich believes the warning will lead to violence flaring up in the region ahead of the president’s visit.
Is it just me or has the world been getting distinctly crazier and crazier over the last nine months or so?
