Three Detained for Trying to Smuggle Flag into Temple Mount

All of Jerusalem and the Temple Mount site were restored to Israel in 1967, but few want to acknowledge it.
Muslims can eave a Palestinian flag on the Temple Mount, but Jews' waving an Israeli flag there is considered a violation of the status quo.

Muslims can eave a Palestinian flag on the Temple Mount, but Jews' waving an Israeli flag there is considered a violation of the status quo.

Three Israelis were detained by police Tuesday morning for trying to smuggle an Israeli flag into the Temple Mount, where they wanted to unfurl it and wave it, a police spokesman said.

One of the men, all of whom were said to be in the 20s and 30s, hid a flag in his underwear, and the two packed the flags in their bags.

Their offense apparently was violating the status quo on the Temple Mount. There is no similar prohibition for Muslims to pray or fly any kind of flag on the Temple Mount.

Last October, 13 Israelis were dragged out and arrested for praying and waving an Israeli flag on the Temple Mount. On Independence Day last year, a group of Israelis tried to enter the Temple Mount and were subjected to what they described as a humiliating search to expose hidden Israeli flags.

“We were separated from the tourists who entered the Temple Mount freely and our ID cards were taken for inspection” Eitaמ Kleinman told the Kol Yehudi radio station.

“A police officer asked us to enter a search room,” Kleinman rlated. “He apologized, explaining that he had to physically search us for a flag. We were shocked; we removed our upper garments and were searched as if we were dangerous criminals.”

After the search they were allowed to enter the Mount, accompanied by officials of the Muslim Waqf who shouted at them.

    Soon and very soon all our prayers will be answered and the Holy Temple will be in it's proper place.Be patient just a little while longer! Amen

  2. The State of Israel must rebuild the Temple of God, because it is written in the Torah, in Exodus 25:8, that God commanded Israel to make for Him a sanctuary.
    The State of Israel must forbid the practice of Islam in the Land of Israel, because it is written in the Torah, in Exodus 22:19, that God commanded that, if a human being sacrifices to other god, he be condemned to death, and the Muslims sacrifice to other god, because their god, in the Quran, said words that contradict the words that the true God had said before, that are written in the Tanakh. For example: In the Quran, the false prophet Muhammad said that his false god said that the holy day is the sixth day of the week (Quran 62:9), when the true God had said before, in Exodus 20:8-11, that the holy day is the seventh day of the week.

  4. Benjamin Fox says:

    Lets see if I have this right, can't fly your own flag on your temple mount and the dome of the devil, oops rock can sit there, burn the thing down, blow it up or what ever, it is trash on a holy site and needs to go, along with the pigs and dogs that worship there, a insult to life, mankind and to God, the real monkeys who are evil, mean, hateful, rapist and murderers and need to be hung from a tall tree in public as the children of satan that they are.

  5. How can we continue a so called peace process with people who openly say they will wipe us off the face of the earth.Is that Emunah or Delusion?

  6. Cody Flecker says:

    If Israeli Jews cannot act responsibly toiwards their own territory, then maybe it's best if they give it away much like their giving away so many murderers to the Palestinians. At least they are proud of their land, Israelis sure are not.

  7. There is something so unbalanced here that I don't begin to understand it. Why are we so afraid of offending the sensibilities of the Palestinians on the Temple Mount when they show no similar sensitivity to offending us. Is the mentality of the Jew as a second class citizen so ingrained in our psyche? So we can't demand "Don't hit me" but rather "Don't hit me too hard". If I weren't being reticent and respectful I would insist that this is pure BS.
