On Friday, Breaking Israel News reported on a Hamas ‘Prayer’ rally that quickly evolved into a violent riot. Approximately 8,000 Muslim Arabs descended upon the Temple Mount and the Tomb of the Patriarchs.
Something else that happened, that was largely unreported was that during the incident, thousands of those participating in the riot chanted slogans threatening a holy was with Israel yelling: “Jews! the army of Al-Aksa (mosque) is returning!”
They also chanted mantras implying a bloody war to retake the Temple Mount screaming: with spirit, with blood, we will free Al-Aksa!”
Below, Kann reporter Nurit Yohanan tweeted footage from the melee:
הבוקר בהר הבית: מתפללים קראו בסיום תפילת הבוקר “יהודים, הצבא של אל-אקצא חוזר” ו”ברוח, בדם, נפדה את אל-אקצא”. המשטרה נכנסה ופזרה אותם pic.twitter.com/1lyE8184XG

According to channel 13, the violent chants were heard as the rioters were exiting the Temple Mount complex.
The footage from the riot also reveals many of the participants shouting in Arabic, “Jews, remember Khaybar, the army of Muhammad is returning.” This is a reference to a seventh-century massacre of Jews at the hands of Muslims in the Saudi Arabian town of Khaybar.
Meanwhile, on Saturday, a 50-year-old Arab woman tried to stab Israeli police officers:

These are the sort of attacks being praised and funded by the Palestinian leadership.
