Bibi Capitulates to Muslim Threats, Orders Feiglin Off Temple Mount

The Waqf threatened Netanyahu with "World War Three" should Feiglin go on the Mount on Monday.

For the past ten years, MK Moshe Feiglin (Likud-Beitenu) has been visiting the Temple Mount in Jerusalem on the 19th of the Hebrew month, every month. But on Sunday, April 28, 2013, Feiglin received a phone call from Deputy Commander Moshe Barkat, Chief of the Israeli Police David Precinct, which includes the Old City of Jerusalem.

He informed me that, on direct order from the prime minister, I would not be permitted to enter the Mount tomorrow,” MK Feiglin wrote in his Facebook page.

A source close to Feiglin told The Jewish Press that the deputy commander told the MK that the Waqf, the Jordanian charity organization which runs the Temple Mount, warned the Prime Minister’s office that should Feiglin go up on the Mount on Monday, it would “start World War Three.”

No one wants that. Except that the same Waqf has been cautioning about new world wars frequently, and is often involved in organizing, rather than trying to prevent them.

According to Feiglin, the prime minister has no legal authority to give such an order, because it violates three basic laws:

1. Basic Law: Human Dignity and Liberty, which gives each person freedom of movement, and requires the state to protect this right.

2. Basic Law: The Knesset, which grants every MK complete immunity in carrying out his duties.

3. Basic Law: Jerusalem, which says: “The sacred sites shall be protected from desecration and any other violation and from anything likely to violate the freedom of access of the religionists to the sites they hold sacred, or their feelings concerning those sites.”

Also: “Any and all authority applying to the area of Jerusalem that is granted by law to the State of Israel or the Jerusalem Municipality, shall not be transferred to a foreign entity, political or governmental, whether permanently or temporarily.”

“The only legal way to prevent me from going up to the Temple Mount tomorrow (without changing existing law),” says MK Feiglin, “is if, in the opinion of the officer in charge of the place there exists an immediate, clear and present danger.”

But, having given him the warning a full day in advance, Feiglin argues, security forces should have ample time—had the prime minister only told them so—to organize and prevent dangerous gathering and violence.

According to MK Feiglin, the Prime Minister’s decision “confirms what I was told by the police command when I asked to tour the Dome of the Rock, that the Temple Mount is under Muslim sovereignty.”

This unfortunate decision, writes Feiglin, can be added to reports this week about transferring broad supervisory authority to UNESCO in Jerusalem, as well as the reality of a de facto construction freeze in Jerusalem, as Housing Minister Uri Ariel warned last week.

The source close to Feiglin says the MK will obey Netanyahu’s directive, but that as of tomorrow Feiglin would no longer be voting the Likud-Beitenu party line.

“When, just before Jerusalem Liberation Day, the Prime Minister orders an Israeli Knesset member that—contrary to Israeli law— he not to go up to the Temple Mount, it means that the Prime Minister has officially and openly revoked Israeli sovereignty on the Mount and given it to the Muslim Waqf,” MK Feiglin wrote.

“This is an entirely new situation, more severe than before, and I must consider now how to force the Prime Minister to respect the sovereignty of the State of Israel in its capital Jerusalem,” he concluded.

  1. Arabs have over 38 Countries, and Israel has shared too much land, so much that even Jewish families have been moved from their homes for Arabs. But Arab maps do not show Israel and they want all of it. Sorry but YHUH made it for the Jews first. And it goes against Torah to give it away when it has been given unto the Children of Israel. So be glad that modern Israel is not Torah obedient that you should take what is not rightfully yours to begin with!

  2. No one should be banned from anyplace if that person respects GOD and is there to pray. No matter how many quotes from whatever number of holy books are posted; the main theme is this, no matter what or which direction you face when you call upon GOD you must carry out his first law… That is to love one another and sing praises when calling upon him and no person has the right or authority to deny anyone else from praying to GOD. Maybe if the powers that be in the "HOLY" land would pray next to each other and find a common bond to the Father, PEACE MIGHT BREAK OUT, it's worth a try!

  3. Michael K-n says:

    Congrats on preventing WW II!

    If this order is a gesture of Israel's good will, neighbors would hardly assume it as it.

  4. Ron Kall says:

    Mustafa just landed from Mars, since there are no more intolerant people in the history of the planet earth than the muslims and a muslim thinks he can lecture Israel. Let him lecture his muslim brothers who destroy every religious site they can as long as it is non muslim. Really, share the land like the muslim world did to it's indigenous Jewish populations and is still doing to it's Christian populations. The epitome of chutzpa!!

  5. Ron Kall says:

    It's a Jewish sickness that they would in any way acquiesce to any demands from the worst enemy the Jewish people have ever faced, muslims! Even worse than hitler!

  6. Ron Kall says:

    I wanted to put that in my posts, but I thought the moderator would be afraid to post it, so now that you said it, I say level the Dome and let the muslim world ignite and make sure that all muslims leave Israel, including Judea and Samaria, like could have been done after the Six Day War!

  7. Ron Kall says:

    You mean like when Begin gave up the Sinai for nothing in return or Golda Meir didn't pre-empt when she new the arabs were going to attack on Yom Kippur!?

  8. Ron Kall says:

    Dennis, the Jews have been trying your idea for a hundred years and the result is more dead Jews. Like interfaith marches and prayer meetings in America, especially right after some muslim kills some of us! The muslims get to walk around hand in hand with us and show the world that they are really pulling one over on us. When G-d eradicates islm, peace will break out!!

  9. Ron Kall says:

    This would be gesture of good will # 987,356.22 and all with the same result from the muslims . More killings and more demands!

  10. Eliezer Dvir says:

    I was used as a "surgical experiment" without my foreknowledge or permission, less than two weeks prior to Pesach, 1985. The 'doctor' destroyed my spine irreparably and also gave me infected blood, and I only discovered (almost dying one day post-Pesach) less than a year ago that the 'doctor' gave me Hepatitis "C", and my wife abandoned me to die in 1986, forbidding me to see my children since 1989 (6 children). Because I am a victim of admitted malpractice, I have NO medical care and am suffering constant agony. I desperately need to come back to Israel somehow (the only one of my children that wants to associate with me lives there, 15,000Km from Vancouver, B.C., Canada), but NO organization will assist me, and the 'doctor' is impossible to locate. The hospital destroyed my files shortly after the 'surgery', and I do not know what tot do. My email is eliezerdviralephbet316@gmail.com. The Israel embassy in Canada refuses to aid me, and o "religious' groups will even speak to me. Is there any way that you can offer me advice as to how to proceed? Mr. Eliezer Dhaim Dvir.

  11. Dvorah Bee says:

    Bibi seems to have given up! To cower to the waft after cowering to erdogan, he is looking like a dhimmi. this is not how a leader of Israel behaves- we do not bow to Islam.

    You Arab drecks

  13. Jason Lipstein says:

    It's only a matter of time before the Jewish people will also be able to once again use G-d as a weapon against His enemies……

  14. The question is simple, how would have King David or his Son Solomon responded to this Muslim threat. The Gentiles have trampled the court yard of the Sacred Temple long enough. The time has come to demolish the Dome and re-build the Temple at the original threshing floor site where the holy of holies was located and that site is exactly in line with the original east gate under the dome of the tabernacles. The time has come for the prophesy to be fulfilled as written. So it was written by HA-SHEM so let it be done.

  15. 2 chronicles 6:6 "But I have chosen Jerusalem, that my Name might be there."

  16. something is very wrong in this country! when muslims threaten to use violence instead of protecting the Jewish People they are attacked for causing the violence!

  17. Zecharia 12 verses 9 and it shall come to pass in that day, that I will seek to destroy all nations that come against Jerusalem, and I will pour upon the House of David, and the inhabitants of Jerusalem, the spirit of grace and supplication,and they shall look upon Him, whom they have pierced and they shall mourn for Him, as on mourneth for his only son. and shall be in bitterness for Him, as one that is in bitterness of his firstborn." the coming of Christ, to gather His elect from the four corners of the earth. shalom.

  18. We have to continue our fight for the Temple Mount! Until all these "bibis" will capitulate to us and to our pressure.

  19. Moishe Sachs. I know there is a theology out that goes around saying that Israel is not important anymore, but that is not true, as Christ has put a love for Israel into our hearts, and Paul mentions that "When the fullness of the gentiles has come in, the Lord will once again return to the people of Israel, as the prophesy that gentiles would be included by Isaiah has come to pass.

  20. Robbie Goldstein says:

    Dan, that is nothing more than revisionist nonsense.
    Here are some verse which show that the covenant between G-d and the Jews will NEVER end:

    (Ecc 13:14)"Whatever G-d decrees shall be forever; nothing shall be added to it nothing shall be taken away."
    (Is 40:18)" The word of the L-rd shall stand firm forever"
    (Num 19:21)"and it shall be law for all time"
    (Num 15:14)". . .There shall be one law for you and for the Ger(Convert), it shall be a law for all time throughout the ages."
    (Num 15:21)"You shall make a gift to the L-rd from the first yield of your baking, throughout the ages"
    (Ex 31:16)"The Israelites people shall keep the Shabbat, observing the Shabbat throughout the ages as a covenant fro all time."
    (Dt 4:2) "Every word which the I command you. You shall observe and do Thou shalt not add unto it nor diminish it"
    (Ps 119)
    (Dt 4:40) "Observe His laws and commandments, which I enjoin upon you this day, that it may go well with you and your children after you and you may live in the land that the L-rd your G-d is assigning to you for all time."
    (Num 15:23) "All that the L-rd commanded you by the hand of Moses from the day that the L-rd gave commandments and onward throughout your generations."
    (Ex 12:17) "And you shall observe the (commandment of) Unleavened bread . . .you shall observe this day throughout your generations as an ordinance forever."
    (Is 49:14) " But Zion says, The L-rd has forsaken me, and my L-rd has forgotten me. Can a woman forget her sucking child, that she should not have compassion on the son of her womb? Yes, even they may forget, but I will not forget you"

    Maybe your pagan idol changes his mind and breaks his word-after stating that HE does not, but the L-rd G-D of Israel, HaShem, does not.

  21. Chaiya Eitan says:

    It is not YOUR land to decide to 'share.' You are occupying the holiest place on earth to the Jews – the Temple Mount! Get your mosque off of there!

  22. Chaiya Eitan says:

    Ya know what….let them start the 'third intifada.' We'll destroy them. They'll beg for mercy.

  23. Yori Yanover says:

    First we need to reclaim it from Bibi, I'm afraid.

  24. Yori Yanover says:

    If only you spoke Hebrew, you'd have understood that what you've concluded here is hogwash. Ignorance equals bliss.

  25. Yori Yanover says:

    Cathy Sherman · Maybe it's like the filibusterer–we should demand that they actually start something, not merely threaten.

  26. Zahava Miryam Ben Yishai says:

    not with what we have leading this country. only if we had a serious right-wing gov't could, and would, we destroy our enemies. the next intifada will probably be worse than the last one. more dead jews. more jewish blood on the gov't's hands. we are our own worst enemy and we're destroying ourselves from the inside. israelis are idiots. they're still in the mindset of "protekzia" – u do for me, and i'll vote for u. it's really pathetic.

  27. Yori Yanover says:

    Georg von Starkermann · Bibi is simply not a religious person. As long as his father, Prof. Netanyahu, was alive, he paid lip service to the Jewish faith. Now his last restraint is gone. A vote for Bibi was a vote for the secular Left in Israel.

    Ron Kall – I'm the moderator, and I agree with you wholeheartedly. If we're talking war, let there be a reason for it.
