UPDATE: According to Ma’ariv, the Temple Mount compound has been closed to visitors, following the arrest of ten men who danced and waved Israeli flags at the site. The area is now clear for Arab kids to continue their soccer matches.

We previously reported that Jerusalem police on Monday morning detained for interrogation three Jewish visitors on the Temple Mount on suspicion of praying and bowing in the area which is designated for strictly Muslim worship.

According to Yehuda Glick, a Temple Mount Heritage Foundation official who has been detained last week and banned from setting foot on the holiest Jewish site, the three Jews, Mevo Horon Rabbi, Rav Micha Peled, and Rabbis Yaakov Heiman and Danny Simmon, were arrested after they had been caught saying the “Sh’ma Israel,” the twice-daily utterance of the covenant between God and the Jews.

Not a very popular document near the Al Aqsa…

The United States Dept. of State has deplored numerous times the unequal treatment of non-Muslims on Temple Mount. Jews, Christians and other non-Muslims who are spotted shutting their eyes meaningfully or moving their lips silently are immediately approached by police who usher them off the compound.

According to Glick, there appears to be anew campaign emerging on the part of the police, whereby they would be guaranteed a measure of peace by the Waqf, the Jordanian charity supervising the site, in exchange for banning anyone who manages to upset the Arab bosses of the place.

Several months ago, MK Moshe Feiglin, a frequent visitor to the holiest site for Jews, was banned indefinitely, backed with an order from Prime Minister Netanyahu.

  1. Terrible but Hashem watching WITHHis eyes…Adonai knows His children praying for you

  2. Shanola Webb says:

    Out of order seems like

  3. Joseph Colen says:

    Why worry about all this when we see that the temple mount in the hands of Jews will eventually allow women lesbians and gays to even perform their marriages there. Who are we trying to kid by thinking otherwise. This is an age where Jews are in majority socialist and communist and we should be thinking that this is what will happen and it should be disturbing to any Jew who will not join them. Wake up. The Almighty will bring the right time when liberalism will no longer exist in us with the coming of the messiah.

  4. Ray Watson says:

    and the great news is that Messiah has already !

  5. Ray Watson says:

    When Messiah returns for the next time,, things WORLD WIDE will be VERY different….thene there will be PEACE as we have never known !

  6. Bernhard Rosenberg

    We need guts. IF THEY WANT A RELIGIOUS WAR GIVE IT TO THEM. THE ONLY PEACE THEY WANT IS A PIECE OF Israel. RABBI DR. BERNHARD ROSENBERG

  7. This can not be allowed to continue…otherwise, why would anyone want to go to Israel to visit a nation held hostage by islamics, the evil ones of vile and horrible memory!

  8. Gil Gilman says:

    Hashem can not be profaned by evil doers. The Temple mount open to and controlled by all Israelis will be a cause for joy.

  9. Sherry Shugart says:

    Cal on the Lord god of Israel and see what Your Lord will do—

  10. I hope thousands upon thousands of Jews pray on the Temple Mount and force Netanyahu to abandon his hideous, contemptible descrimination against his own people who he "claims" to care about.

  11. truthseekr says:

    This is a control issue. The muslims are using threats of violence to control what happens on the Mount, which is Israel’s to control. We have to stop giving in to their threats of violence. Arrest and deport the rioters. This goes on and at the same time Israel is accused of apartheid against Arabs. Bottom line is, G-d owns the Temple Mount and His payback will not be pretty. This is the very LAST place Muslims should choose to take such a stand.

  12. Anonymous says:

    In case you all forgot the fact that the Temple Mount is in Israeli territory, owned and should be operated by Israel. Not the Palestinians, Arabs, or any one else. The time has come to destroy the Mosque that is polluting this land, and start to build the Third Temple. For sure, limit the number of Palestinians and other Arabs from visiting this site.

  13. declare SHEMA YISHMAEL – ALLA HUAKBAR – HAF ALLAH

  14. What a horrible, irrational response to a serious conundrum that deserves serious debate. The rules for worship on Temple Mount, like most in Israel, are the result of negotiations. The experience of non-Jews (and some Jews) desecrating, littering, and destroying portions of this holy place is one, but not the only, historical "fact" that requires weighing in addressing control of much of the historical sites is Israel that have meaning to all persons of many faiths, and sometimes no faith. And in this world of adversity, let's hope that G– has better things to do than mediate who has the right to "control" this sacred place, which is, after all, just a piece of land that has symbolic importance to many.

  15. IT IS NO SURPRISE THAT AT THE SAME TIME OUR OWN SITES ARE SHUT DOWN BY OUR GOVERNMENT AT THE SAME TIME THE TEMPLE MOUNT IS CLOSED TO ONLY MUSLIMS. OUR OWN PRESIDENT IS A SECRET MUSLIM THAT HAS GIVEN BILLIONS OF OUR TAX DOLLARS TO LEADERS OF MUSLIM NATIONS AND MADE A TRIP ON OUR TAX DOLLARS RIGHT AFTER HIS ELECTION. THE FACT THAT MUSLIMS LET THEIR KIDS PLAY SOCCER ON IT, SHOW THEY REALLY DON'T CARE ABOUT THE SITE BEING THEIR "HOLY SITE". WOULD THIS BE HERESY TO USE A HOLY SITE FOR SUCH THINGS? IT IS JUST ANOTHER JEWISH SITE THAT MUSLIMS WANT TO STEAL FROM ISRAEL. MUHAMMAD NEVER EVEN CAME TO JERUSALEM. IT IS LIES. I CAN NOT BELIEVE OUR PRESIDENT HAS NOT SAID SOMETHING ABOUT THIS SINCE IT IS TOURIST ALSO BEING ABUSED BY ROCK THROWING. BUT WHY SHOULD OBAMA SAY ANYTHING? IT IS HIS "BROTHERHOOD" THAT IS TAKING THE THINGS AWAY FROM THE JEWISH PEOPLE. THE ONLY THING HE WANTED FROM JEWS WAS VOTES. ALL I CAN SAY IS BARUCH HA SHEM ADONAI! THE TEMPLE WILL BE REBUILT IF NOT NOW WHEN MESSIAH COMES! SHALOM TO US ALL THAT BELIEVE THE TRUTH!

  16. "Our OWN President is a secret Muslim???" OMG a Tea Party moron. YOU and people like you who don't think, can't think and won't think are KILLING EVERYTHING my country ever stood for.
    ALL you ignorant right wing extremist have destroyed AMERICA . The people that hate America don't have to do anything to us ….YOU are doing it for them.

  17. The Israeli Government really must stop pandering to Islamic persecutors, Al Acqsa has no place on Temple Mount. There have been two so called Muslim Empires all of which made Islam the National religion since there were so many uneducated Arab peasants at the time. The Almoravids were not Muslim, they came from Northern Sahara and were in fact Berbers with a different religion. Prior to all Muslim areas in the Balkans, Eastern Europe Iran Iraq the religion was either Judaic, Coptic Christian, Zorastrian, B'hai or Parsee. People were forced to become Muslim and Christian white blonde women were stolen from Europe to serve in the Harems of both Ottoman & Almoravid. As for Saudi, they had no religion to speak of until the so called Prophet. In conclusion the sooner Islam is no longer recognized as a political tool the better for all of us. The Arabs have Mecca and Medina so what do they want Jerusalem for other than to make trouble. I am so sick of hearing about Muslim Arabs who are corrupt, greedy, self indulgent and dishonest and daily this is being proven in Europe.

  18. Blow up the Al-Aqsa and buid the temple, do you hear Netanyahu.

  19. Yechiel Baum says:

    If you ban Jewish prayer at the Temple Mount, then the next step will be their continued demand to ban Jews praying at the outer wall of our Jewish Holy Temple.

    Does this make sense from Israeli law givers to do the work of the Arab squatters to ban Jews from our temple so Arab kids can defile the Temple by playing soccer and throwing rocks at the holy Jews?

    Where is common sense?

  20. The Israeli Government has given permission for the Muslims to have access to the Temple Mount. Personally, I think they should revoke the permission. If Jews and Christians are not allowed, then Muslims shouldn't be allowed either.

  21. Betty Scott says:

    If their belief is that no other God except the one the Muslims pray to hears the prayers, then why is it such a big deal when other people pray there?

  22. You are wrong sweetheart. You need to do your homework

  23. The third Temple will be rebuilt. According to God's plan. His plan, so I think this is of major importance to him.
