An extremist Jewish organization has urged the Israeli government to
launch a World Trade Centre-style attack on the Ka'ba, Islam's holiest
mosque, on Feb-21, the main day of the Hajj. 

According to the PPA's correspondent in London, the Israeli government
has refused to support the plan saying such a plan is not feasible at
the government level. 

An Arab diplomatic source who learnt about the murderous plan,
originally suggested by U.S.-based Jewish Defence League (JDL), has
taken up the matter with his government and has also informed several
other Muslims diplomats in Washington. 

According to the diplomat, U.S. officials, who are also aware of the
suggestions, told him not to take this threat seriously. The JDL is
outlawed in the US as a terrorist organisation. 

Muslim diplomats in London believe that any attack against the greatest
Islamic symbol faith and unity could enrage Muslims all over the world
and may spark off a new wave of uncontrollable protests and
disturbances. 

"Perhaps this what the enemies of Islam are looking for, to destabilize
the several powerful Islamic countries and pave the way for an
intervention by foreign elements to capture strategic assets there," a
Muslim diplomat told PPA. 

Late last year the U.S. Federal Bureau of Investigation charged the two
top leaders of Jewish Defence League, Irv Rubin and Earl Kruggel with
conspiring to bomb a mosque in Culver City and American Congressman
Darrell Issa's Office. 

Both suspects face a minimum 35 years imprisonment. An Indian
fundamentalist organization, Hindu Unity, also based in America, is
campaigning for the release of two Jewish leaders.
