1. Islamic 'rights' in Jerusalem.
tiki ,   belgium   (12.06.17)
Please show us where it's written in your holy Koran!
2. Israel please send 1000 ISIS from hospitals to depose king

3. Say what you want: at least the Ishmaelites are honest, as
opposed to our so called "friends' in Europe and the US!
Robert ,   Israel   (12.06.17)
Why is it that muslims always menace? Christians have the same right as them and we do not see christians exploting themselves, nor stabbing people, nor decapitating infidels. As far as we all know, muslims are infidels acording to the christisn faith.
5. Retired
Miranda Saltz ,   Jerusalem   (12.06.17)
Idle threats from leaders intimidated and ruled by TERRORIST groups.
6. The pretender king is pretending
Ian ,   Newcastle upon Tyne   (12.06.17)
I really do wish these Islamic tyrants would learn to open their arrogant mouths without trying to deceive.
Nothing in Trump's expected statement changes the status of Muslims and Christians in Jerusalem or restricts their ability to practice their religions.I avoid the nonsense term, 'rights' although Muslims have more of those on the Temple Mount than do Jews.

There is now more freedom of religion in Jerusalem than thrre has been for 2,000 years.During the Jordanian illegal occcupation and annexation Jews were barred from Eastern Jerusalem and the old city and Jewish sites were violated and destroyed.

It's overdue that Abdullah explains to us why his great grandfather and father didn't take the opportunity from 1948 to 1967 to set up a 'Palestinian' state on the 'West Bank' with its capital Eastern Jerusalem instead of just expanding TransJordan into Jordan and not even moving rhe capital from Amman to Eastern Jerusalem.

7. ... and what you Muzzies did up until now was not violence?

8. Denying Islamic Rights
Nigel Lawrence ,   London   (12.06.17)
Since 1948, Israel has guaranteed the rights to pray to all religions. The only exclusion is Jews at our holiest sight.
With this in mind, King Abdullah's comments are inflammatory, and ill founded
9. The eternal Moslem threats and blackmails
Alexander ,   Tel Aviv   (12.06.17)
It's pretty rich of King Abdullah to steal 80% of my JEWISH HOMELAND (Jordan), and then pretend that he is the rightful "owner" of "Jordan", while he gazes to the West in order to steal the remaining 20% of our Jewish homeland - still pretending that our Jewish homeland is the Arab and Moslem world's "real estate".

Thousands of years before Arabs and Moslems existed in the Middle East and thousands of years before they invaded and conquered Israel in 636 AD (could this be the correct year of the Islamic invasion of Israel in the 7th AD?), we Jews inhabited the land of Israel.

Claiming Islamic "rights" to Israel is like claiming Nazi German "rights" to Poland, USSR, Europe and the UK, or claiming British and European "rights" to Black Africa and India.

King Abdullah and Mad Dog ErDOGan: please change your diapers. The air in the Middle East is smelly enough. You don't need to make a natural contribution to the strained air quality in this region of the world.
10. The Koran says Israel belongs to the Jews
Alexander ,   Tel Aviv   (12.06.17)
Jerusalem is never mentioned - not once, ona single page, in the Koran.
By contrast, Jerusalem is mentioned approximately 700 times in the Holy Bible.

Just like the Bible, the Koran acknowledges the unbreakable bond and historical connection between Israel and the Jewish people.

"We [Muslims] believe in that which was revealed to us [the Qur'an] and that which was revealed to you [the Torah]. Our God and your God is one. To Him we surrender ourselves".

[Qur'an: Sura 29, "The Spider", verse 47]

"We [Allah] settled the Israelites in a blessed land and provided them with good things".

[Qur'an: Sura 10, "Jonah", verse 93]

"Pharoah sought to scare them [the Jews] out of the land [of Israel]: but We [Allah] drowned him, together with all who were with him. Then We said to the Israelites: 'Dwell in this land. When the promise of the hereafter comes to be fulfilled, We shall assemble you all together [in the Land of Israel in the End of Days]".

[Qur'an: Sura 17, "The Night Journey", verse 103]

"Pharoah sought to scare them [the Jews] out of the land [of Israel]: but We [Allah] drowned him, together with all who were with him. Then We said to the Israelites: 'Dwell in this land. When the promise of the hereafter comes to be fulfilled, We shall assemble you all together [in the Land of Israel in the End of Days]".

[Qur'an: Sura 17, "The Night Journey", verse 103]

"it was Our [Allah's] will to favour those who were oppressed [the Jews] and to make them leaders of mankind, to bestow on them a noble heritage and to give them power in the land [of Israel]: and to inflict on Pharoah, Haman, and their army, the very scourge dreaded by their victims".

[Qur'an: Sura 28, "The Story", verses 5-6]
11. Islam is of the Devil
Tova   (12.06.17)
to Jerusalem. Islam is a false god, There is no mention of Jerusalem in the Quran. The Quran was written by Mohammad who proclaimed himself king of the world. Islam means Jihad which mean to war against all nations and people who do not follow the Quran. Mohammad never rose to heaven on a white horse from the temple mount. He died before Jerusalem was conquered by Saldine. The Christian crusades lost the battle. Islam is a religion of death. and yet so many westeners including stupid jews believe if they accept Islam as a religion of peace will somehow bring peace on earth.

Islam is the muslin ideaology of eastern nations as Nazism, skin heads and white supremecy is of the western countries.
12. Jews have never had any rights in Jordan
Steve Benassi ,   Minneapolis USA   (12.06.17)
13. ""denying Islamic and Christian rights in Jerusalem will
will increase violence," which may cause the "palestinians" who I keep locked up in refugee camps to go berserk...alla knows that THAT doesn't take much... and possibly overthrow my phony, invented kingdom. Exile in England looks better and every day.
14. Spoken like a yapping chewowa
MadDad ,   Johannesburg   (12.07.17)
15. Lets be honest...
Mark ,   USA   (12.07.17)
some of those Islamic rights being claimed that can't be denied is
the right to murder anyone that is not Islamic enough for the mullahs, imams and
jihadists that seek to subject the Muslim community
to their narrow world view of kill the infidel, battle it out between Sunni and Shi'ia over who is Mohammed rightful successor ie heritidical lineage or custodial stewership and Nationalistic hubris.
Just saying that is an honest summation of last 100 years of conflict.
IRANIAN JEW ,   LALA LAND   (12.07.17)
Muslim leaders know how to twist inforamation and get what they want out of their followers. Hey short king! Take your WB and Palis and care for them like you shoudl have. Your daddy abandon them for others to care for.
17. how can ......
steve s   (12.07.17)
How can an educated person react to the US's acknowledgement of the capital of Israel by claiming: "denying Islamic and Christian rights in Jerusalem will lead to violence". Exactly what "rights" are being denied by this acknowledgement? Is King Abdullah now a defender of Christianity? I find his comments illogical, almost idiotic.
