Video: The Shema That Shut Down the Temple Mount!

Thirteen Jews were arrested for being on the Temple Mount for praying.

Monday, October 14, 2013 (10 Cheshvan): Jews on the Temple Mount today shouted out the Shema prayer, prostrated themselves on the ground (in Aleinu), unfurled an Israeli flag and sang Hatikva, the Israeli national anthem, before being stopped by police. Thirteen Jews were arrested.

The Israel Police, acting contrary to Israeli law, forbids any non-Muslim form of worship on the Temple Mount. Jewish symbols such as the flag of Israel of the star of David are also forbidden, as is the national anthem of Israel. The reasoning behind the ban is to placate the Muslim Wakf which enjoys custodial authority on the Mount.

The first half of this video was filmed by Jewish participants in today’s Temple Mount ascent, and the second half was filmed by the Muslim Wakf guards.

    Can you believe were we are today? That when a Jew davens on the Temple mount, it's now a crime… How long before HaShem says to us, maybe we haven't be away long enough to know the value of this sacred and chosen place. It is not too lage for us too, to show the same courage these young men did and take back that which we were charged to watch over, which we were given back, as a possession.

  5. My spirit is with my brother Jewish man, FOUNDATION of Temple Mount is Mt. MoriYAH, the foundation ROCK, the most HOLY /set-apart place in the whole earth, given and belongs forever to HIS set-apart chosen people ISRAEL….this is a DIVINE scripted rested issue … all others are but just a a century old arbitrary man-made claim… tracing back has no foundational DIVINE, and factual basis, but just a continuous clinch imaginary arbitrary man-made claim….the TIME IS ripe…HE is coming too soon back to you NOW Israel…

    All very well.  Now, let me ask everybody a simple question:  would YOU send YOUR SON OR DAUGHTER to risk his/her LIFE….. over the rights to this “great/sacred” real estate?    And before you get carried away with patriotism for Israel, remember…it’s might be YOUR kid who’s up there safe-guarding the area.
    With that in mind:  what’s your answer?

  7. It is time to make our government in Jerusalem fill every jail and prison with these, our hero Jews, who will not stand down from what is ours…make the government act and then make it show it's shame and retreat from supporting islamic domination of what is ours…the Temple Mount belongs to Jews and no one else! It is time to drive the evil doers, the islamic murderers and liars from every Holy site in Israel…starting at the Temple Mount! Foreign opinion be damned as it always has been!

  8. Let This Freedom Ring Throughout Israel!

    Once again mazel tov..

  10. You are the Chashmonaim of today, the Irgunists, the true heroes!
    EVERY DAY groups of Jews should do the same until they stop harassing us for praying in our holiest spot.

  11. Moshe Shani Raider says:

    Since when are we allowed to go onto Har Habayis – isn't there a tumah issue?

  12. Suzanne Levin says:

    Kol ha'kavod!

  13. Ira L. Jacobson says:

    You sound like a Xtian missionary, Zining Messianic. Did I guess right?

  14. Apparently they are afraid of prayer to the real God…..

  15. r goldz says:

    once we are no longer willing to risk even our lives for an ideal or even a “piece of real estate”, our lives become meaningless – we may as well be cows grazing in the pasture.

  16. The revolution is starting!, go on!,this our soul!, through away the muslims, they don't respect Hashem place.

  17. Diane Parkin says:

    I was on the Temple Mount several weeks ago and felt intimidated by Muslim women as our little group went to peek in the window of the Mosque.

  18. Jewish people should have as much access to the Temple Mount as Americans have to their Memorials and Landmarks!

  19. Yechiel Baum says:

    Is the Israeli police on the payroll of the moslem squatters wakif and stop prayers by Jews at the Kotel and in the shuls?

    The police should not expect to be buried in Jewish cemeteries with ritual prayers then!

  20. Darah York says:

    This is STILL obsurd to me. Dayan should have listened to the Rabbi…

  21. We Christian America are with you Brothers in Abraham, Take your Birthright of Prayer.

  22. TEMPLE MOUNT, AND IN OUR YERUSHALAÏM, in her entity again, and in our very own Jewish land, ISRAËL,
    Where is the harm, for Gods'sake?
    And above and formost all,
    WHAT rhe HECK are those Moslim policemen doing in our ERETZ ISRAËL?
    It is not AT ALL their country here.

    MOSLIMS, GO HOME!!

Additionally, may we dry our hands via an electric dryer?
