Police Bar Jews from Holiday Visit to Temple Mount

Jerusalem police once again have prohibited Jews from visiting the Temple Mount because of security officials’ unintended admission that they cannot or do not want to deal with violent Arabs.

Officially, police say that they blocked the planned visit of hundreds of Jews to the holy site on Tuesday, the sixth day of the Sukkot holiday, because of intelligence information that Arab protesters would be violently upset, which is par for the course when Jews try to ascend the Temple Mount.

Among those barred on Tuesday was Jewish Home Knesset Member Shuli Moalem-Refaeli as well as busloads of school children.

The Temple Mount remained open for Muslims, of course.

    If the reason Jews are barred from the Temple Mount is  unintended admission that they cannot or do not want to deal with violent Arabs then it is, perhaps, time to have to start contending with justifiably and and violent Jews.

    If the reason for keeping Jews off the Temple Mount is unintended admission that they (authorities) cannot or do not want to deal with violent Arabs, then it is, perhaps, time to start dealing with justifiable angry and violent Jews.

    well if the Arabs are the ones causing the problems, then expel and ban them from Jerusalem, instead of rewarding terrorism with EXACTLY what they want!!!….
    Me thinks the Israeli Government has forgotten that it is supposed to be fighting for Judaism rather than Islam…
