DOES THE WAQF RULE ISRAELI POLICE?

Israel Police Banned Me from the Temple Mount on Vague Charges

Temple Mount Institute official and professional tour guide Yehuda Glick, an American, sent us his version of events as of last Thursday.

Anyone who knows me is aware of the fact that when I visit The Temple Mount I go out of my way to be kind to all – tourists, the police, the Arabs. Beyond that, I am totally obedient to any request or instructions of the police.

The same was the situation this past Thursday – they told me to speak more softly, go here, go there, go slow, go fast – every request has been met in full.

As a licensed tour guide, I guided a group of Likud activists, this was the fourth group already that Thursday.

Everything seemed to be fine.

As we concluded, we shook hands with the policemen and officers that had accompanied us.

We thanked them, they said goodbye and even expressed that it was a successful visit, and it was all over.

Each one of us turned his way. I received a call from another group asking me to join. I came to the main entrance, went through the routine inspection and everything was fine.

Just before we actually entered the mountain, an officer came and told me I was detained for disturbing the public order on the Temple Mount. I was quite shocked. After an interrogation, I still have no idea what I am accused of.

I told the investigator that today was no different than the hundreds of other times I guided groups in the past. They ignored my protests and notified me of an unlimited ban from entering the Temple Mount.

As a matter of fact, while I was waiting at the police station, the police officers who earlier escorted me around the mountain entered the station and asked me what I was doing there. I told them that I was being arrested for disturbing the Temple Mount order. They asked me “when? But you were with us!” Then they were taken in to a room and someone “explained to them the issue.” One by one they came out and passed me without meeting my eyes.

I genuinely have no clue as to what the story is. Maybe there was some agreement with the Waqf (the Jordanian charity in charge of the Temple Mount compound) that the police will keep me away and they will stay quiet. Maybe it was an act of revenge against me for my criticizing the police – I really have no clue. It is absolutely clear that some decision was made about me, regardless of my real actions.

I have 15 groups scheduled for the coming month. This is my entire life and my main income. I’m the Father of a family of 8 children. Unfortunately, there is no one to talk to.

The group that was with me are very angry and want to send to the authorities a letter titled “blood libel,” though this is not my style. My lawyer issued a legal letter but I’m afraid it won’t do much good.

I think the main reason the police can get away with such behavior is that we gave up the Temple Mount. If Jews were part of the natural landscape on Temple Mount, things would be different.

Jews Come Home To The Temple Mount!

    I do not hate Muslims. I respect them much more than Christians but I am 100% Zionist. But why shouldn’t Jews be able to pray on the Mount? Would they rather Al Aqsa was demolished to rebuild the Temple? That’s the next alternative and technically it could not be stopped except by Israel’s unwillingness to do so.

  4. Yes…come to the Temple Mount!

  5. Cody Flecker says:

    Either kickout the Arabs from the Temple Mount, or give it back to them 100%. Stop this anti Jewish nonsense right now.

  6. truthseekr says:

    This is an abomination. I’ve toured the mount with Rabbi Glick and he’s not a troublemaker or anything that should bring about such an order. This is not right. I’m one Israeli who’s getting very fed up with the situation with the Arabs on the Temple Mount. If they won’t share, they need to go. Period. We need to stand firm against their riots and threats. I pray the govt rescinds the order against Rabbi Glick.

  7. Outrageous…how dare they? Every Jew has the right to go to our Temple Mount any time and as often as we wish…the police are simply wrong on this matter and the Waqf needs to be removed and not replaced.

  8. The Temple Mount the holiest site in Judaism is neglected by the secular, agonstic,atheistic anti-Judaism,anti-Zionist governments(}left,center,right wing)!of Israel. The religious in Israel(modern,centrist,ultrorthodox)lack the EMUNAH the real faith to put this CHILUL HASHEm to an end! The Ramban built a shul on the top of the Mount in the middle ages! For starts, let be a no-man land. The Mosque on the Temple mount is a national disgrace! Shame! Shame! Watch BCAT.Tv every Wednesday 10:00am and 6:00PM New York Time. Scroll down to Community Media then click on Bcat Tv Network. Click on the arrow in Channel 2.(Judaism). rabbimfriedman@yahoo.com

  9. Why stop with the Temple Mount, kick the Arabs out of Greater Israel. Period.

  10. Lloyd Bergner says:

    Har HaBeit shelanu l'olam va'ed (The Temple Mount is OURS forever)

  11. This is a holy place.
