FED UP: Israel Bans Muslim Men Under Age 50 from Holy Site in Jerusalem...
Israel is sick of Palestine's crap. Understandable. There's been quite a bit of clashing, typically of a stabby nature (read 67% of Palestinians Support Knifing Israelis. Yes, Even Little Girls. and SO MUCH PEACE: Palestinian Leaders Encourage Children to Murder Jews). There's been violence aplenty surrounding "holy" sites in Jerusalem, where Palestinian Muslims prey upon all the Jews. After suffering through so much of Palestine's stirring of the pot (and exploding of the pot), Israel has a new security measure: no more military-aged men allowed at certain mosques.
Israeli police said on Friday that Muslim men under the age of 50 would not be allowed at the al-Aqsa Mosque compound, in an announcement made hours before expected mass protests.
Palestinians prepared for fresh demonstrations over new security measures at the holy site in occupied East Jerusalem, a week after a deadly shoot-out at the compound that triggered tensions.
"Entry to the Old City and Temple Mount will be limited to men aged 50 and over. Women of all ages will be permitted," a police statement said.
At least 3,000 Israeli police and border police units had been deployed to the area, according to a police spokesman.
For a country struggling to survive while surrounded by enemies, this isn't a bad idea. Yeah, sure it's "profiling" but military-aged Muslim men are typically the self-exploding, Stabby McStabersons. Is this policy also ageist? Sure. Islamophobic? You bet. But methinks the amount of violence will drop like the sexual age of "consent" for young Muslim ladies. Wherever Muslim men go, violence tends to follow. Much like gays and AIDS.
Godspeed and good luck to Israel here. It won't be long before the left rushes like stabtastic Muslims to denounce these totes reasonable actions. Israel is trying to keep the peace and protect themselves. It's called "self-preservation" from entire countries trying to blast them out of existence. How dare they. Perhaps Israel should flex their open mindedness by giving Palestine their land instead. That's an actual idea straight from Obama and the United Nations (see WTF? John Kerry Actually Says 'Israel can be Jewish OR Democratic. It cannot be both').
Israel can't catch a break. But if they can stop violent numbskulls from criming it up in their city, more power to them.
