Arabs on Jerusalem’s Temple Mount began rioting at 8 AM Sunday morning.

The Muslims on the Jewish holy site began throwing firebombs and stones at police, after police opened up the Mughrabi gates to visitors.

Two policemen were hurt in the Arab attack.

Police used stun grenades to disperse the rioters.

The police subsequently closed the Temple Mount was closed to all visitors.

Arabs on the Temple Mount violently riot on a semi-regular basis to keep Jews from being able to visit, particularly before Jewish holidays, when it has become more popular for Jews to visit the holy site.

  1. WHY does NETANYAHU and the rest of Israel continue to tolerate this?

  2. That absurd situation, Israel must respect the law and the will of every Jew to visit the Temple Mount.
    G’D bless and protect Israel and you people.

  3. Paul Weiss says:

    close it to all Muslims until Jews are given their time for their prayers. They do not decide who gets the right. Certainly, we Jews have first rights, without a doubt!!!

  4. Dan Larrivee says:

    Muslims will never stop attacking the non Muslim, its there prime goal, its not because they're Arabs its because their Muslims and they believe in the Quran and their Imams.

  5. John Wests says:

    I’d live to see everyone under the Islamic lash rise up and riot through every Muslim area. See who they like it we people take back Thier rights and stolen land.

  6. Torah has a passage where Isaac and Ismael made peace after the death of Avraham! So there’s a hidden message there: arabs turn to the Peace (Shalom ; Salaam )!

  7. QED If the Waqf is incapable of managing the site, patently they are not, administration should be given to a mixed council of Muslims, Christians & JewIsh religious leaders. That would sort it!

  8. Romi Itzik says:

    they have no repekt for holy they are Satanik people

  9. If Putin was the PM in Israel, I wonder what his reaction would be to incidents like this.Guy may be a thug, but he does not tolerate this type of incident in any way, form or manner.Of course, then the world would vilify Israel, as usual.

  10. Ted Sones says:

    It is about t time the Israel gov. herd the provoking Palestinians up and send them over to Hamas and let them enjoy their so-called freedom there.Those involved ; their families should be refrained from receiving welfare handouts as a penalty for not controlling their gangster kids.

  11. Anonymous says:

    Will the Israeli army take over the mount or only yeshivas get taken over?

  12. This should not happen in a holy place.

  13. Pashan Knight says:

    God's will be done.

  14. We believe the Jews will not be driven out of Jerusalem again. best wishes from the Midwest of America.

  15. They need to control themselves or else controlled

  16. Kathie Sykes says:

    To the Arabs, it apparently is not a holy place. I can’t imagine, say, Christians rioting in their churches, or Jews rioting in their synagogues. I don’t think I’ve ever heard of Muslims rioting in Mecca…

  17. I don't know what to say except how terrible to see a Burning Jewish Guard. What do we do?They shouldn't be able to get away with this!!!

  18. Obviously Jordan can't police the Temple Mount.

  19. Anonymous says:

    Whoever leaves you, don't worry, Your God of will protect you from all your enemies. Time has come closer for the world to witness your God.

  20. You will know them by their fruits….
    Too bad the police didn't just shoot them for throwing firebombs.

  21. Alan Kardon says:

    I am not reading about any arrests. Why? If you let them push you around they will continue to do so.

  22. It is time to take over East Jerusalem, Judea, Samaria and Gaza and throw all this arabs to the neighbour ****ries.

  23. Ron Szczotka says:

    The police should have used rifles instead of stun grenades.Eliminate the problems one by one until they realize they are gonna die if they threaten the lives of innocent people or the police!

  24. Stun grenade , Use the new Laser weapon on bomb throwers, it works on rockets and RPG's, Try it on the rag heads.

  25. Why stun grenades? they should be using hollow-points with a little bit of mercury inside…that will insure they will not be around for next Passover…

  26. Bob Propp says:

    PEACE TO THE ARABS IS SPELLED " PIECE" THATS WHAT THEY
    WANT . THEY WILL NEVER RECOGNIZE THE STATE OF ISRAEL .
