In an image released Tuesday, U.S. Ambassador David Friedman can be seen laughing and smiling — while standing next to an aerial view of Jerusalem that has been digitally altered to replace one of Islam’s holiest sites with a Jewish temple.

The photograph, which was first reported on by the ultra-Orthodox news site Kikar Hashabat, was taken while Friedman was in the Israeli city of Bnei Brak, known as a center of ultra-Orthodox Judaism. The ambassador had been touring the city with Achiya, a charity that works with disabled children.

The Jerusalem Post reports that the altered image was given to Friedman as a gift from an activist who works with Achiya.

  1. Rafiq— Muslim have two Holy places—1 in Mecca, 2 in Madinah— that is more than enough — be generous Allah will bless those who generous— let us love Jews, let Jews to build their own Temple, they do not have a Holy Temple yet in Israel.
    Can we be generous and kind to our brother Jews?

    “What has turned them (Muslims) from their Qiblah [prayer direction (towards ,Mesjidil Aqsa,Jerusalem)] to which they were used to face in prayer.” Say, (O Muhammad SAW) ” Surely, We shall turn you to a Qiblah (prayer direction) that shall please you, so turn your face in the direction of Al-Masjid- Al-Harâm (at Makkah). And wheresoever you people are, turn your faces (in prayer) in that direction. Certainly, the people who were given the Scriptures (i.e. Jews and the Christians) know well that, that (your turning towards the direction of the Ka’bah at Makkah in prayers) is the truth from their Lord.
    That this is verily the word of an honoured Messenger [i.e. Jibril (Gabriel) or Muhammad SAW which he has brought from Allâh]. Q.69:(40) . o they not then consider the Qur’ân carefully? Had it been from other than Allâh, they would surely have found therein many contradictions. Q.4:(82) Then in what statement after this (the Qur’ân) will they believe? Q.77:(50)

    And the Messenger (Muhammad SAW) will say: “O my Lord! Verily, my people deserted this Qur’ân (neither listened to it, nor acted on its laws and teachings).Q.25: 30. Those who reject Allah’s commandment will be punished severely.

    May Allah create peace between Jews and Palestine. Amen

    All love ❤️
    I wish you all a blessed and peaceful Ramadhan
