Jews Barred from Temple Mount, Feiglin Blames Provocateurs

The Temple Mount was closed to Jews and non-Muslims on Sunday, after posters attributed to Likud candidate and activist Moshe Feiglin called for the destruction of the mosques on the site.

Feiglin and his spokespeople denied any involvement in the creation of posters placed throughout Jerusalem calling for a “cleansing” of the “enemies of Israel” from the Temple Mount.  Feiglin was among those prevented from going up on the Temple Mount during his monthly ascension to the holy spot.

Also on Sunday, Israel Army Radio reported that the  ‘Ir Amim’ organization, which promotes Arab rights in Jerusalem, wrote to Prime Minister Netanyahu asking him to prevent Moshe Feiglin and other Likud party members from ascending the Temple Mount.

“There was some provocation going on,” Feiglin told The Jewish Press.  “Someone published a flyer in my name calling for the destruction of the mosques (on the Temple Mount) and before I managed to do anything about it, the entire world media was there basically, including al-Jazeera and many European and Israeli media, and the police got scared so they closed the mountain.”

“I think the situation where Israel is walking on egg shells in everything that has any connection to the Temple Mount just shows that the Temple Mount is not really in our hands, and because of that, we are losing the rest of the country,” Feiglin said.  “The Temple Mount is the core, the key, it is the heart of the body of the land of Israel.  That’s why it’s so important to keep our connection to the place and full Israeli sovereignty over the place.”

Feiglin, who earned 25 percent of votes in the Likud party primaries on January 31 against Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu, goes up onto the Temple Mount every month on the 19th of the Jewish month.  He urged police to investigate the making of the posters.

    Since the first people to complain were radical lefties from Keshev and Ir Amim. I’d put money on where I think the poster originated from, or at least who might know who really made it.

  2. Wazup says:

    Hey! Ir Amim didn’t complain on Sunday. They complained at least yesterday if not the day before. They knew about it before Moshe did.

  3. Wazup says:

    It’s so obviously fake. The poster say, “Manhigut HaLikud” not “Manhigut Yehudit”.

    I think Moshe Feiglin embodies the spirit of the old Likudminks like Begin, z”l, Shamir,z”l & are more inclined to be jealous for every inch of our Inheritance of Eretz Yisrael. All these other guys are acting like real estate brokers, but even when Barak offered them everything they spit in his face. There is no 2 Sstate Solution. Israel was given to the Jewish people by the UN and Britain. There are 57 Arab States. If they want to live in a Moslim State, let them leave, with our assistance. There is only One Land for the Jews & it is so small it’s barely visible on a map. I know that Menachem Begin grieved until the end of his life because he started this whole precedent of giving land to our Enemies with NO GUARANTEE OF PEACE, NO ECONOMICAL TRADE BENEFITS, gave up all our OIL WELLS that provided Israel with all her energy needs. It was a loser’s decision–not a winner. We had respect of the world after the 6 day war. Now we’re acting like they REALLY HAVE A CAUSE, WHICH THEY DON’T. People who believe we Jews have a right to all of our land should join with Moshe Feglin & back up those who aren’t afraid to tell the whole world that this is Our Land. Not only was MORE LAND given by the UN, but we have bled on this land through 63 yearss of constant war. And in our own Country Jews are banned from the Temple Mount. In the Time of Redemption our Govermnment is blind & afraid to lose money. They don’t stand for their land. They are acting like brokers. We will NOT BE PROTECTED! Nobody cares. I watched in horror in 1967 as the UN sat on their hands & did NOTHING to help Israel. Egypt told the UN Forces who were placed there to protect Israel to get out. They left. Everyone said Israel was a goner. Too bad. But HaShem had a surprise for the world, and he gave us back our Holy Temple. Moshe Dayan, an atheist Jewish General gave it back to the Arabs. The people had no voice or choice in that. We just take all this junk they shove at us like sheep. We need Shepards like David HaMelech, the Great Warrior, King & Lover of G-d.
