Article 9 of the 1994 Jordanian-Israel Treaty

Postby gracebyfaith on Sat Oct 12, 2013 12:11 pm

Article 9 guarantees free access to historically significant places in Jerusalem. Israel agrees to respect Jordan's special role in protecting Muslim Holy shrines in Jerusalem. Israel agrees to give high priority to Jordan's historic role in these shrines during permanent status negotiations. The states also pledge to promote interfaith relations among Judaism, Islam and Christianity, with the aim of working towards religious understanding, moral commitment, freedom of religious worship, tolerance and peace.

Article 9 clarifies that Jordan and Israel have agreed to guarantee freedom of religious worship at Jerusalem Holy Sites. That suggests that MK Feiglin is correct. All restrictions against Jews on the Temple Mount are contrary to the terms of a signed Peace Agreement. Discrimination of Jews at Jerusalem Holy Sites is a Treaty violation

Sounds good, looks good on paper, but these three faiths are perpetually at odds with each other, and so are the people who carry these faiths deep in their hearts. I appreciate that these kinds of statements (and probably steps to implement good faith measures) are necessary, but in reality, the individual people who harbor and true feelings for their faith are not going to be persuaded.
