Moshe Feiglin davened with a minyan on Temple Mount.

The Jewish Press just received the following text of a letter sent earlier to Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, regarding the latter’s order preventing the entry of MK Moshe Feiglin to Temple Mount.

Dear Sir,

We, members of the Joint Staff of the Temple Mount movements, read with great concern the news of your order preventing the entry of MK Moshe Feiglin to the Temple Mount area.

To our knowledge, MK Moshe Feiglin has been ascending to the Temple Mount each month for more than ten years. Every one of his visits has gone without any damage whatsoever to the public order.

Recently, the GSS has arrested a terrorists cell who tried to harm Jews climbing up to the Temple Mount. Once again it was proven publicly that Jewish visitors are not the source of violence on the Temple Mount.

In recent years we have seen a very welcome increase in the number of Jewish visotors to the Temple Mount, and the prevention of the entry of Jews in general and so much more so a Knesset Member from entering the Temple Mount, the holiest place for the Jewish people, constitutes a clear message of encouragement and support to parties that incite and perpetrate violence.

We fear that this step will give our enemies the tools to continue their incitement to violence and the violation of the Jewish freedom of worship in our capital.

We call on you at this time to immediately revoke your order preventing the entrance of MK Moshe Feiglin to the Temple Mount, and if you think there is a fear that his assent to the Temple Mount would endanger the public order, it is required that you instruct the numerous security personnel who are scattered all over the Temple Mount area to provide MK Moshe Feiglin with full protection of his liberty and of his immunity as a member of the Knesset.

  1. One does not have to agree with the messianistic pretentions of these "Temple Mount" organizations, or with MK Feiglin's extreme and often uninformed political views, to think that arresting people for praying on the Temple Mount is an inappropriate thing for a Jewish state to be doing.

  2. So now we turn Jeruslaem into hell.
    The Arab takeover of our temple mount, we cannot dig for addiitonal proof of our ownership.
    Women can touch the toah even when they are Nidah.
    Did Bibi rename the country: The Non-Jewish State of Israel as Yael Dayan wanted?

    Bibi, this is our home. Stand up and be a man!

  3. Temple Mount is now our ground zero- without rights to pray here, without the goverment backing our rights, we are reduced to being dhimmi status. Bibi is afraid of the Muslim Wakf.
