Arabs Harass Two Members of Harper’s Staff on Temple Mount (Video)

Israelis forget that normal countries with normal police arrest abnormal hotheads.
Stockwell Day: “If anyone in my country yelled at police like that, he would be arrested immediately,"

Stockwell Day: “If anyone in my country yelled at police like that, he would be arrested immediately,"

Two members of the delegation travelling with visiting Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper were shocked to see provocative and insulting behavior of Muslims and complacency of Israeli police during their visit to the Temple Mount Monday.

Stockwell Day, former Minister of Public Safety, accompanied Aharon Blumenfeld, a religious Jewish lawyer from Toronto was joined Harper’s entourage on Sunday after a private visit on the Sabbath with former Canadian businessman Mark Belzberg.

After the subject of the Temple Mount came up during the day and Blumenfeld said he wanted to ascend the Temple Mount, Day insisted that go along and even immerse in the mikveh (ritual poll) before, as required of Jews but not non-Jews.

If you’re going to experience something like a Jew, go all the way.

When the time tame to ascend the Temple Mount, Day and Blumenfeld discovered what Israelis go through every day, at least those who are allowed by police to visit.

First of all, the police inspected them and went through their pockets to make sure they were not carrying forbidden items, such as machine guns, bombs and a piece of Kleenex with a prayer scribbled on it.

They were warned not to pray and not to pick up any holy dirt from the holy site, which seems like a bit of a strange request. The Palestinian Authority has picked up a tons of holy dirt, along with artifacts that are evidence of the Holy Temples, in an effort to prevent exposure of proof beyond the Biblical account, which of course is part of a Zionist conspiracy to deny the Muslim claim that Jesus was a Palestinian and that the Zionist lobby made up all that other stuff.

After getting clearance, Temple Mount activists Rabbi Yehuda Glick  and Yoel Elitzur escorted Blumenfeld and Day to the Temple Mount for a visit of slightly more than an hour.

Towards the end, the action started, as seen in the video below.

Muslim men and women started screaming and yelling at the intruders. Glick, who has had his run-ins with police, complimented them on their handling of the situation. He told The Jewish Press that the law enforcement officers did a good job of separating the outraged Muslims from the visitors and preventing things from getting out of hand.

Day, who as minister dealt with police conduct, was not so impressed.

“If anyone in my country yelled at police like that, he would be arrested immediately,” he was quoted by Glick as saying.

Welcome to Israel.

Stockwell, by the way, is also active in the Canadian Center for Israel and Jewish Affairs.

In 2004, after the death of Yasser Arafat, Day was one of the few sane people who did not offer his condolences.

    The two, Day and Blumenfeld, are not members of Harper's staff.
    They're on the trip courtesy of Canadian taxpayers.
    BTW People in Canada do not get arrested for talking loudly to police. You have been misinformed.

  2. Eva Stein says:

    That's outrageous! It's our holy place!

  3. Dan Silagi says:

    It is both a Muslim holy place and a Jewish holy place. Both Jews and Muslims should have the right to pray there.

  4. Interesting information. But the abundance of grammatical errors are unacceptable for a large Jewish publication.

  5. Wonderful!! Let others see what kind of trash goes on at the occupied Temple Mount.

  6. why “abnormal hotheads?”

  7. Sure evil hates good.

  8. Michal Evenari says:

    I too find unbelievable, how calm and nice the police officers were. One must imagine, the few men wanted only to pray! I am very sorry, but here the Israelis are on the way to be like sheep, who – after some time of behaving like this – , will go quietly to be slaughtered. It all happened once, that some shouted and the others were quiet and obedient.

  9. I might add…since it's Jewish then it's Christian also. I can't believe the control and restraint of the police. Wow!!! I'm impressed. This too will end….when the GOD of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob sets foot on the Temple Mt they will all know to WHOM it belongs.
