MK Moshe Feiglin issued the following statement on his Facebook page:
Regarding my ascent to the Temple Mount.
Tomorrow – the 19th day of Jewish month of Tammuz, it would be the fourth month in which I have been forbidden to enter the Temple Mount.
We are now in the period of the “three weeks” between the fast of the 17th of Tammuz and the fast of Tisha B’Av, and these days the grief over the devastation becomes more concrete for me, as I am not allowed onto the Temple Mount.
Tomorrow I plan to arrive at the Temple Menorah Plaza in the Jewish quarter – a place overlooking the Mountain – and to conduct morning prayers there, with the people who will later go up.
