Temple Mount Closed to Muslims – War Does Not Break Out

Jews on the Temple Mount

Jews on the Temple Mount

Police closed the Temple Mount to Muslims on Tuesday, Shavuot eve, after receiving intelligence reports of planned Arab riots against Jewish visitors to the holy site, according to an Arutz-7 report.

A source confirmed the story to the JewishPress.com and added that police simply learned their lesson from previous Jewish holidays when the Arabs used that as an excuse to riot.

This is the first time Israel has ever almost completely closed the Temple Mount to Muslims. Only some Waqf officials, and elderly were allowed to stay on the Jewish holy site.

And despite the constant threats from the police and the left that the Arabs would riot and war could break out if Israel were to do that – nothing happened.

In an unusual move, the police instead opened the Temple Mount to 400 Jewish visitors, and did not cause the religious Jewish visitors any delays or problems like they normally do.

One regular at the Kotel told JewishPress.com that he saw an unusually large contingent of Jews go up to the mountain.

There have been proposals to create a time-sharing arrangement on the Temple Mount, so Jews can pray there without being harassed by Hamas inciters. If today works out smoothly, perhaps this will become a more permanent arrangement.

The Women in Green have already put in an official request for Jewish prayer time on the Temple Mount on Tisha B’Av, the anniversary of he destruction of the Temple. They are still waiting for a reply.

  1. About time if it’s true.

  2. Wow is this true??

  3. Brilliant news! Hope its true!

  4. Should only be opened to Jews. This is the site of the Temple, anything else is secondary. You can respect it, but, Jewish sovereignty over the mount takes precedence.

  5. The Mosque there is a “victory mosque’ to rub in military victory. They are notorious for this sort of desecration. Time to re-assert the territory. Blow the mosque up and replace it with the Temple that belongs there. The mosque was put there as an insult. Time to return the favour.

  6. Marc Guerin says:

    Very Soon you will get your Wish..

  7. Marc Guerin says:

    Wonderful ! This makes my Day !

  8. And KEEP IT CLOSED TO THE MUZZIES. Next step, kicking the whole lot of them out of Israel.

  9. Leo Roys says:

    it’s about time good for you Israel

  10. Uzi Kattan says:

    Jewish for a day? It should always be Jewish!

  11. Thankyou Yahweh our ELOHIM of all times. ..HaleluYah

  12. Victor Krief says:

    Une mosquee construite sur les ruines de notre temple.Je souhaite qu’un jour que notre temple refera surface a cette meme place .AMEN .

  13. Lize Bartsch says:

    Wow!!!!!! this is progress :) May the Lord protect you and bless Israel!!!

  14. Lize Bartsch says:

    Yes let them go to their countries and worship at Mecca their Moon stone. The Arabs who convert to YHVH Elohim can also worship at the new temple. Jerusalem belongs to the Jews for 3500 years!!!

  15. THINGS ISRAEL NEEDS TO DO NOW WITH EVERYTHING THAT HAS OCCURRED:
    1) ASSERT SOVEREIGNTY OVER THE ENTIRE TEMPLE MOUNT.
    2) ANNEX ALL OF JUDEA AND SAMARIA.
    3) TURN OFF THE ELECTRICITY TO ALLTHE MUSLIM AREAS UNTIL THEY PAY THEIR BILL.
    4) WITHHOLD ALL THE TAXES THAT WE COLLECT IN ISRAEL FOR THE MUSLIMS.
    5) FOR MUSLIMS CITIZENS OF ISRAEL AND THOSE WHO WANT TO BE CITIZENS OF ISRAEL, THEY NEED TO SIGN AN OATH OF LOYALTY TO ISRAEL THAT THEY ARE HELD TO…….IF THEY DO NOT WANT TO SIGN NOR ABIDE BY ANY SUCH DOCUMENT, THEY MUST LEAVE.
    6) BLACKTOP GAZA AND CLEAR OUT THE SCUM.
    7) RESIGN FROM ALL ASPECTS OF THE UN…..AS WELL AS KICK THE UN OUT OF OUR COUNTRY.
    8) ADVISE ANY OF OUR NEIGHBORS THAT SURROUND US, THAT ANY VIOLATION OF OUR BORDERS, WILL CAUSE A COMPLETE ANNIHILATION OF THEIR COUNTRY.

  16. Ralph Pipkin says:

    the only reason the muslims consider the Mount a muslim holy place is because it is a Jewish true Holy place

  17. Lisa Roberts says:

    YAY!!!!! Now keep it that way!!

  18. Kkkk Wake up stupid. SHEEPLE

  19. I pray that we should all get along & respect each other

  20. Dan, when they worship, they kneel and turn their backsides to the Golden Pimple and face MECCA! Easy to find photos of it online.

  21. Judith Dowla says:

    Sandy, that is a very great thing that you have said, that we all respect each other. It is coming to be the tikkum repairing.

  22. Judith Dowla says:

    Right David, the right has been paid with the blood sacrifice of lives. Each life that was laid down for the cause.

  23. Benjamin Fox says:

    Neither the Temple Mount or Jerusalem mentioned in the corrupt book the Quran, so no rights there and no claim there, be gone you Islamist dogs, go eat some pork chops and drink some pigs blood in your own land.

  24. Judith Dowla says:

    Bobbie, it could be that they do no want to create war but rather are looking at a different remedy that would not trigger violence and bloodshed. We know that ADONAI is working behind these scenes. We need to speak with the LORD more often than not.

  25. Next step: to build our teple.

  26. Judith Dowla says:

    Thank you Sientje! And G-D Bless you too! Blessings and All Good Things! Shalom,

  29. Judith Dowla says:

    Angela, I have had similar confrontations with Muslims in other places and remain silent though on one occasion I spoke up and said we need to find a common ground between Muslims, Jews and Christians. And he asked me a question about Abraham and I answered him and he said nothing more for he knew that I had the correct answer. We went our separate way in peace. Our best foot forward is to respond in civility and I learned that the hard way a few times. The way provided in the Jewish Code of Ethics works, yes it does and I will use it from now on.

  30. Judith Dowla says:

    Josh Bitto , they have the same father being Abraham, and believe in Isaac, Moses and Jacob. They claim through history that has been taught to them that Ismael is a family member and Ishmael was the first son of Abraham via Hagar. You could check online for more details if you feel you need to. Good question Josh, very good indeed.

  31. Judith Dowla says:

    So Stuart, who do you think should take this on?

  32. Judith Dowla says:

    Alice, you are right, it is good news and there is hope that more will take place. All is starting to go through a committee of approach and time will tell if that leads to fruition. We are known by the fruits of our works and our civility.

  33. Judith Dowla says:

    Josh, you might contact via the Internet The Temple Mount Institute who have already prepared a considerable amount of items to be placed in the future Third Temple. You can find them online and ask what stage they are at.

  34. Judith Dowla says:

    A nice idea Brian but we are not allowed to take the law into our own hands let alone make a law that has not been sanctioned. We are really trying to create a mutual agreement on some aspects we are sharing with others. Unfortunately due to the errors or politicians the Temple Mount got ceded over to the Muslims in one of the wars. Sad, but true. Now it would be to negotiate to share the common ground. Everyone has had quite enough of war and bloodshed and are realizing it really does more harm than good.

  35. Judith Dowla says:

    Dan, let`s build the Third Temple soon!

  36. Judith Dowla says:

    shermaneutics2 let us build the Third Temple soon and not just talk about it but get up to it and around to it.

  37. Silky Pitterman Easily solved. Hand out a map prepared by Rav Riskin or other knowledgeable person showing where not to go on Har Habayit. Also going to mikveh before ascending is also a good idea even with a valid map.

  38. Judith Dowla says:

    ¨Philip, and it will come to be,a sharing of the Temple Mount.

  39. Judith Dowla says:

    Silky Pitterman, we need to know how to walk on hallowed ground.

  40. Larry Singleton says:

    Martin Kramer:
    Gaza is a place with no Israeli settlements, from which Israel has totally withdrawn to the 1967 lines, and which nonetheless has become a Hamas terror state. That’s what happens in conditions of Gazafication. So when people say that in a two-state solution, Palestinians would have a "right of return" to the West Bank and not Israel, I do not find that particularly reassuring either. Any influx of Palestinians across the Jordan poses a problem for Israel, and it is naive to dismiss it. I would like to hear how, in a two-state scenario, Gazafication of the West Bank can be prevented. I haven't heard it yet.

    Neither have I.

    Read The Haj by Leon Uris. And ask these questions:

    What year did the nation of Palestine come into existance?
    What were its national borders and what year did it cease to exist?
    What currency did the nation of Palestine use and why is there no history of it?
    Name one leader to the “nation of Palestine” prior to Yasser Arafat.

    What the hell is with this damn web page that it keeps hopping to the top of the page? No offense but I usually find these problems with websites that tend to be ad whores. It's bouncing up and down AS I TYPE!!!!

  42. Larry Singleton says:

    No matter what I do the damn thing keeps hopping to the top of the damn page!!!!!

  43. Josh Bitto says:

    Judith Dowla Yeah, but Ishmael was sent away and never was given any lineage or inheritance from Abraham after the fact. So really their validity is mute. :/

  44. I WILL CONTINUE TO RESTATE THIS ABSOLUTE IMMUTABLE TRUTH THAT IT'S TIME TO TEAR DOWN THAT SATANIC BLASPHEMY ON OUR HOLY MOUNT MORIAH AND REBUILD NO MATTER WHAT IT TAKES OUR HOLY TEMPLE NO MATTER WHAT IT TAKES! NOW!

  45. I have a solution for the two state problem. The people in Gaza and the west bank should read their Qr'an which says that Israel is for the Jews then they need to go home to where ever they came from Egypt, Iran, Iraq, Saudi or where ever they come from then they can be in their own state. Palestine does not exist in the middle east it's in Texas.

  46. Hello Larry: I thought it was me, or my computer! Now I know it's the web page. And yes, even before I can get to reading the essay, ads pop up in the centre of the screen.
    Thanks for letting me know it isn't my computer. If this continues, the only solution for me is to end subscription.

  47. Josh Bitto : They just do as their Imams tell them; think as their Imams tell them. Proof of Israel being the Jewish homeland is not jut in the Old & New Testaments; it is in the Qur'an too. Sadly, Muhammad got into the habit of killing as many Jews as he could; today's bunch believe that Muhammad is the "perfect model for human behaviour"; so they copy everything he did – without a single thought or idea in their heads apart from "kill Jews" as their Imams and Muhammad tell them they should. Oh, and Muhammad was a VERY practise deceiver & liar. So it is easy to see where the Arabs/Muslims are coming from.

  48. Silky Pitterman – Good point. MOSHIACH NOW!!!

  49. Tennille Thomson says:

    sam_simpson – then get off this site!

  50. Dan Silagi says:

    Mark Weis There's plenty of bullying on each side. Who am I? I'm a centrist, assimilated, secular Jew who believes that a 2-state solution, with Jerusalem totally in Israel but with open access to the holy sites, is the only practical one.

  51. Dan Silagi says:

    Eleanor Hebert Wyatt Uh. Eleanor, the book of Arab military victories against the Israelis is a very short one. In fact, there's nothing in it at all except black pages. And if they face Mecca, well, that's their religion. Where are they supposed to face? Scranton, Pa.?

  52. Anonymous says:

    Sheila Novitz Same problem as well.

  53. Anonymous says:

    Judith Dowla Please stop taking the name of G-D in vain. It is for prayer only.

  54. Larry Singleton says:

    I came back to respond to your response. I've only been here a minute and already it's driving me nuts. I keep looking at a post-it I taped to my desk "Don't Be Angry" Like Billy Jack used to say; "I try, I really try".

  55. Rick Krejcik says:

    Preach it , Brother !!!!!!!

  56. It is unnatural for Jews not to be allowed to pray at Temple Mount.. From America, I support Israel.

  57. David Tripp says:

    If I ever went to the Wailing Wall I would break down in tears and speak in Tongues .

  58. Josh Bitto says:

    David Tripp If you have ever watch any of Perry Stone's sermons he goes to Israel every year. In one of them he says that some people get so caught off guard on how holy the place is and how it affects them personally. He said his first time going he cried for days on just being there. Wish I could go O.O maybe one day. :/
