  1. It would almost be funny if some of the rockets being fired at Israel landed on the al-aqsa mosque.

  2. Yes, but believe it or not, I don’t want to see innocents killed, including Arabs.

  3. they should impose sovereignty instead of preserving th rioters.

  4. Stop ,the nonsense and let the jewish people pray on the temple mount and stop the MUSLIMS that is the correct way.

  5. Maybe a rocket will hit the golden dome!!!

  6. Christa Dees says:

    So you are saying it is okay for Palestinians to kill children of Israel. Palestine started this.

  7. True.all thy real self that believe what they thought was right is actually wrong.as thy fallen angel Lucifer controls and wants to be a God that he can never be thy real God.for all thy strategies are revealing a true scriptures in life.no matter what they go against thy living almighty God. Their sins they will have to answer before thy throne of Almighty God themselves .but how real demons answer their own accountable sin before thy glory, before thy three cross of repentance. Each person has to be accountable in their own sorrow .and generation of adam and eve along with Lucifer of pride .thy sorrow in sin has to answered in truth amen thank you God

    Israel are defending themselves… It’s not just rock throwing… You barbaric pigs bloody stone people to death! This is retaliation for Israel’s children being murdered, for non stop rockets sent by terrorists trying to take the lives of innocent civilians. Israel are trying to preserve life and protect it’s people… Your people on the other hand are murderers! Plain and simple!

  9. bruce have been saying that all along sure hope so

  10. Lisa Kamins says:

    close Our Temple Mount to the muslims, not the Jews.

  11. PUNISH ARABS WHY NOT ALLOW JEWS

  12. Dale Stacy says:

    Ok, the rioters need to be removed, not others…

  13. Dale Stacy says:

    It’s amazing to see Arabs so baffled that there are consequences for their actions, whether it’s rioting or terrorist attacks, the state of mind is mind boggling, need a few thousand years of evolution to bring them up to modern times…

  14. I was just going to say that. May the rockets fall on the dome of the rock and may the innocent Arabs be far away from it.

  15. Just another front for Israel, always potentially a daily one.

  16. Get all the Muslims out of Jerusalem. Send them back to their own countries. Syria, Jordan, Egypt, Lebanon etc

  17. It belongs to the Jews. Let them have the whole thing!

  18. why was it opened to arabs at all??

  19. They are animals. The Temple Mount is a religious place for the 3 religions. It is a pity that the hate mongrels control the uneducated masses and push them to commit crimes of hate

  20. this is the reason, Dome of the Rock is the,’that which makes desolate’ Jews are not even allowed, pray in temple mount.

  21. Carolin Knox says:

    Why do those like Marsha Forman Goldfine choose to “infantalize” in the Judea/Samaria and Gaza? You act as if they don’t know what they are doing and they certainly do. That is what they were taught, but most have internet access and can learn. Unless you want to claim that they are mentally challenged or learning disabled, then quit it. It is wrong and has left them with a never ending sense of victimhood.

  22. Judi Fradkin says:

    Keep them off the temple mount from now on……..

  23. Ronnie Pleet says:

    time to blow it up and start anew

  24. Ronnie Pleet says:

    Do you think innocents are on the mount now? Only rioters

  25. Close it to everyone, seriously, don’t let a single Muslim on the mount period.

  26. It’s a futile effort trying to keep the peace with radical Muslims …..!!

  27. so why didn’t they close it to the rioters? .. bored

  28. It should be closed to Muslims… Temple Mount belongs to the Jewish people
