JERUALEM (JTA) — Hundreds of Muslims chanted about killing Jews outside the Al-Aqsa Mosque in Jerusalem on Friday morning, prompting police to disperse the crowd.

The chants began as worshippers were leaving the mosque following prayers atop the Temple Mount, Israel’s Channel 13 reported.

No one was injured in clashes with police, who broke up the impromptu march where the chants occurred.

In footage from the march, many men can be heard shouting in Arabic, “Jews, remember Khaybar, the army of Muhammad is returning.”

The cry relates to an event in the seventh century when Muslims massacred and expelled Jews from the town of Khaybar, located in modern-day Saudi Arabia.

They also shouted: “With spirit and blood, we will salvage Al-Aqsa” and “Jews, the army of Al-Aqsa is returning.”

The last mass disturbance by Muslims near Al-Aqsa was in summer during the Muslim holiday of Eid al-Adha. Worshippers threw chairs and stones at police, triggering a temporary closure of the mosque.

  1. Were they yelling about all Jews or just Zionist Jews? Wanted to know if NK, Satmarers and other Israel-haters are included… or were they participating in the chants?

    • That’s because the Zionist hijacked the Jewish platform and pretend to represent all Jews. Our job is to go out and shew the world what genuine Judaism is. News flash: it isn’t the Zionist version.

      • News flash it’s a Machlokis. Satmar held like you . And rav kook ztl held Zionism
        Is the Jewish way as long as we still keep the Torah . That’s not for me and you to know. One thing is for sure practically speaking now they hate Us all. Even if the Zionist’s disappear the lions is enraged and out of its cage . From a practical perSpective we need to keep those animals behind strong walls and crippled. And yes build settlements so that they stay spread out and far away from big cities. It’s the only way we stay safe . It’s a practical matter

  2. Stupid israelis.shouldve come with tanks and squashed those vermin.what would egypt do if jews started saying itabach arabi.scared ? Ask the Chinese army how they did it

  3. This is why we need to Daven that Palestinians be smitten with yena machla and ALS. We are still in golus and can’t throw the bums out. Our powers lay in davening to hashem that they all be smitten while us Jews spared. I think even Yingel agrees with that .

    • There are 2 yingel’s here. Yingele and yingale. Not sure which one you are referring to. I certainly don’t agree with that. I never wish cruelty on anybody. I daven for a yeshua in e”y. Your tefila also most likely qualifies as a tefilas shuv since you are davening for an extraordinary and open miracle in a very specific way. Speak to your posek about it. While you’re at it ask your posek if you should post such vicious comments on a public online forum.

  4. I dont know why some posters here think that Egypt, or Jordan or Saudi Arabia wouldn’t allow their Jewish Citizens to chant “Death to Moslems”, and “Death to Arabs”? The arab regimes would absolutely have no problem with such demonstrations. Of course they don’t actually allow Jews to live in their countries, so it couldn’t actually happen; but otherwise, it would be no problem whatsoever!
