Arab Rioters Force MK Feiglin off Temple Mount

From the standpoint of the Arabs, Jews indeed are guilty of incitement so long as Israel exists.

Stone-throwing Arab rioters forced police to escort Knesset Member Moshe Feiglin off the Temple Mount Thursday morning. Several Muslims were bruised in the melee.

Feiglin and his entourage ascended the Temple Mount without any confrontation. He commented to those accompanying him that the Third Temple will be built, God willing, a prayer that is included in the liturgy that Jews recite every day and which has been expressed for 2,000 years.

But when Feiglin says it, especially on the Temple Mount, the Arabs call it incitement.

Arabs screamed “Allah Akbar” as they confronted dozens of policemen who protected Feiglin, who eventually was forced to retreat as the mob got out of hand and police decided their freedom to riot was more important than the freedom of a Jew to visit the site.

Feiglin commented after he was hustled away, “Today’s incidents show more than ever…that violence pays off. Israeli weakness encourages violence.”

Different versions of the incident appeared in the media, each with its own agenda. The Bethlehem-based Ma’an News Agency told its readers, “Worshipers shouted ‘Allah Akbar’ at the group before Israeli forces raided the compound and began assaulting them with clubs. In response, young Palestinians began throwing stones at the Knesset members, forcing them to leave the compound.”

The terms “raid, “stormed,” and “invade” are used in every Arab report on Jews ascending to the holy site. Ma’an blamed Israel for the riot, stating that “Israeli forces, however, regularly escort Jewish visitors to the site, often leading to tension with Palestinians.”

 Arutz Sheva reported that.” Hundreds of rioters threw stones at Feiglin,” although the number seems to be gross exaggeration since only two Arabs were arrested. In the YouTube of Feiglin’s visits, stone throwers were not caught on film.

The Jerusalem Post wrote that the Arabs “gathered” to protest Feiglin’s visit and that “authorities ordered Feiglin to leave the compound and worked to disperse the rioters.”

The Times of Israel wrote, “Hundreds of Arab youths assembled Thursday morning atop Jerusalem’s Temple Mount to protest the visit of Likud MK Moshe Feiglin to the site.”

They did not “assemble” and did not “gather” and if they were “worshippers,” as Ma’an called them, why weren’t they inside their mosque praying to Allah to curse Feiglin?

Stay tuned.

MK Feiglin will be back, and so will the rioters.

In the video below, the commotion begins around 2:50 minutes and then escalates at $4:00 and 6:00, where the police begin to retreat.

  1. President Obama is seen as weak. America should lead the world and not be the laughing stock of the world. Putin is laughing at Obama. RABBI DR. BERNHARD ROSENBERG

  2. Ben II says:

    deport the rioters to Syria. Coward Netanyahu needs to wake up.

  3. DAVID AGAINST GOLIATH. WE WILL HAVE OUR TEMPLE AND THERE WILL BE PEACE FOR ALL THE NATIONS TO GATHER TO WORSHIP THE G-D OF ISRAEL. BRAVE LITTLE GROUP OF JEWS

  4. It is shame that we have to live with these kind of people and to deal with them.

  5. The State of Israel must rebuild the Temple of God, because it is written in the Torah, in Exodus 25:8, that God commanded Israel to make for Him a sanctuary.
    The State of Israel must forbid the practice of Islam in the Land of Israel, because it is written in the Torah, in Exodus 22:19, that God commanded that, if a human being sacrifices to other god, he be condemned to death, and the Muslims sacrifice to other god, because their god, in the Quran, said words that contradict the words that the true God had said before, that are written in the Tanakh. For example: In the Quran, the false prophet Muhammad said that his false god said that the holy day is the sixth day of the week (Quran 62:9).

  6. never mind rebuilding the temple. Establish full control over Har HaBayit. Is it a part of Yerushalaim, or is iit still somewhere in Jordan? The right of all Jews to visit the "Temple Mount" should be limitted at most by halachic consideration of tumma and tahara

  7. Build third temple today on Temple Mount.demolish al aksa mosque now,reclaim Temple Mount today.Abraham made kaba for Ishmael in Mecca and madina.Arabs have no rights on Temple Mount ,they must go to Mecca and medina.Demolish Ramallah ,nabulus,jenin,jerico today.Temple mount for Judaism only.

  8. Again, the weakness of the jewish people to allow arabs to take over the Temple Mount, that is our Temple, I am not sure if the muslims are the "bad boys" survivors from Sodoma and Gamorra?.

  9. Lou Brifman says:

    It is a shame that we allow goal freedom of movement to the Arabs but do not demand the same freedom from them in regard to our holy areas.
    We gave up control of ha maarat hamachpelah, the temple mount and we had to bury Rachels tomb due to the damage inflicted by the Arabs.
