The Kotel Plaza, the stairs, the Kotel entrance, the roads, everything was packed for Birkat Cohanim – the Priestly Blessing of the People – now imagine if this had been held on top of Har HaBayit, the Temple Mount!

  5. =
    The Birkat Cohanim religious service cannot be held on top of Har HaBayit. Because the Israel Authorities in collaboration with the Israel Rabbinic Authorities are still under the mental enslavement of dhimmitude.
    Israel National TVs rather speak of the Tiberias packed seashores & of the TLV Luna Park, But not a word about the thousands of Israelis visiting the “Peace House” & the Makhpela in Hebron to unite in prayers with the surviving wife & five kids of the police officer victim of Islam terror. The Israel national TVs rather show a section of Hebron under muslims rocks attacks. And the Israel Police rather close the Temple Mount to Jewish Visitors in order to comply with the sharia compliant fatwa of a Jew Free Temple Mount.
