The Temple Mount Closed Down following Feiglin’s Visit

MK Moshe Feiglin and friends on Temple Mount last year.

MK Moshe Feiglin came to the Temple Mount on Monday morning and asked to enter the Dome of the Rock. According to Feiglin, police prevented him from entering, claiming that the place is under the sovereignty of the Waqf Arab charities in Amman, Jordan, Reshet Bet radio reported.

Jerusalem police sources said that MK Feiglin asked to enter one of the mosques that are closed to Jewish visitors.

But as of 2006, the entire Temple Mount has been reopened to non-Muslim visitors between the hours of 7:30–11:30 AM and 1:30–2:30 PM during summer and 7:30–10:30 AM and 1:30–2:30 PM during winter. Non-Muslims are prohibited from entering after 2:30 PM and may not enter on Fridays, Saturdays, or Muslim holidays.

Those police sources also said that it was made clear that Feiglin could not enter, but he insisted, saying he is entitled to enter in his role as member of the Knesset.

Knesset members are granted extensive legal immunity and privileges. Their special legal status, which many observers regard as excessive, ranges from parliamentary immunity to protection from criminal proceedings for the entire period of Knesset membership. Immunity extends to acts committed before becoming a Knesset member, although such immunity can be removed by the Knesset upon the recommendation of the House Committee.

While the MK was debating with police, a crowd of Muslim worshipers gathered in the place. A police force that was dispatched to the scene dispersed the crowd and took MK Feiglin out, declaring the site closed to the public.

Hamas TV claimed that Muslim worshipers threw shoes at Feiglin and chased him away. This does not appear to be a truthful report.

    I am not sure what Moshe Feiglin's objective was entering the Dome of the Rock. He wanted to see it? Jewish religious rituals have never been held in there. Just like they have never been held at the Kaaba Stone. If he wanted to stand on Temple Mount to pray, then freedom of worship should have allowed him to do so.

  3. Hinda Blas says:

    MK Feiglin has a right as per law to enter the mount. Once again the Invented People are showing their pro-Apartheid stances by refusing Jews from entering the sites. If this doesn't prove to the world that the Invented People are trying to erase all claims by Jews to the region known as Israel, nothing will.
