Guardian photo caption claims Jewish settlers “stormed” al-Aqsa mosque

On Sept. 21 the Guardian published ‘Life in Palestine 20 years on from the Oslo accord – in pictures‘, which included the following photo:

Anger as Israel Restricts Access to Al-Aqsa Mosque on Friday

Here’s the caption:


According to the Guardian, Jews ‘stormed the mosque’, an incendiary and completely fantastical claim typically only advanced by the Palestinian Authority (andtheir extremist supporters) to characterize Jews who simply visit the Temple Mount, the holiest site in Judaism.  Indeed, the site of Friends of Al-Aqsa (a pro-Hamas UK organization which advocates Israel’s destruction) had an almost identical claimon the same day.

Regarding the specific Guardian photo in question, it actually depicts (per Getty Images) Palestinians in Gaza City protesting restrictions imposed on visitors to the mosque that day due to previous riots, as well as recent calls by Al Aqsa Martyr’s Brigade to confront the ongoing “invasion of herds of settlers to the compound“.

Please send me, as a comment to this page, any old material you have for inclusion in The Daily Joke Alert - to help enable us all to have our fancy tickled regularly! Never mind the state it's in as I tidy everything up prior to publication. Don't let good material go to waste - and so much does. In the interests of the environment we should always try to re-cycle everything, especially jokes. You know that makes sense! You may find some historical stuff here, but this does not really matter as humor is fairly timeless.
