Is Ascending the Temple Mount Irresponsible?

That a Knesset member must toe the line of the majority, not because it is the law but because it is the majority opinion, is not applicable to democracy.

But that really does not matter. The argument that a Knesset member must toe the line of the majority – not because it is the law but because it is the majority opinion – may be applicable to the understanding of democracy in the People’s Republic of China. There is no need to further belabor the point. Thus I suggest that you rethink your position.

Sincerely,

Moshe Feiglin

  1. Everything comes down to former defense minister Dayan, who allowed the Muslims to keep control of the Temple Mount, but in actuality, it was Israel right to keep ti for being the victorious in the 1967 war. Israel should have been the power in control of that area, never mind, Israel cosiders Jerusalem its Capital, and she claims sovereignty on the whole area. Thus, why it is that Jews are not allowed to worship on the Temple Mount if Israel controls the whole area? Why is it that the Muslims have to dictate and forbid Jewish people to worship there if you know that the old Temple was built right there? How long are you people going to keep the status quo as it is just because the Muslims do not like Jews at all? What needs to be done to change this loudicrous status quo, and let Jewis People not only built their Templo but to worship there again? What are you afraid of? World War III? then, so be it. You will never have your Third Temple and worship there unless you do something about it. Just keeping the pathetic status quo is not going to solve the problem. Do you want the Anti-Christ to show up and do that job for the Jewish State? I would prefer Israel to take care of the problem, and now; not in about 1,000 years. The Jewish Faith is paramount to the Nation of Israel, and that is why Jews are back on their own homeland.

  2. Israel should take back the Temple of the Mount. They will do a much better job than the Arabs.

  3. Robin Rosenblatt says:

    The more we give to the Arabs the more they will take.
