“Jews played badminton in Al Aqsa Mosque”: rumor

This may be the craziest rumor yet about Jews on the Temple Mount.


An antisemitic former Kuwaiti MP tweeted twice about Jews yesterday.One of his tweets called Jews the most despicable of all people that he claimed were ruining his nation.

His other included this photo which he claimed showed Jews playing sports in the Al Aqsa Mosque.

The Jews not only broke into the third holiest mosque but they defiled it by playing badminton! How low can you get?

This rumor has been around for at least a year, mostly on Twitter and message boards.

The photo actually comes from Turkey. Hurriyet Daily News reported in 2013:

Children who attend Quran classes in Turkey’s Muğla province are now also receiving badminton lessons in the mosques, in accordance with a protocol signed recently between the Religious Affairs Directorate and Sports Directorate.

Offering badminton courses with Quran readings aims to get the children to form a habit of visiting the mosque, according to Anadolu news agency.

A badminton net was put up inside the Milas mosque and the first match went down between the Milas religious official Uğur Kocabaş and badminton trainer Şermin Günaydınoğlu. Lessons will now be offered to all children who attend the summer Quran courses at the mosque, the report said.

Kocabaş said the arrangement allowed “students to be introduced to sports while they learn religion.”
