I can’t understand why the government claims to be afraid about what the Arabs will say or do when it comes to Jewish prayer and access to the Temple Mount?
Are they going to shoot at us from Gaza? Are they going to launch firecrackers at us from Jerusalem? Will they throw rocks at the Jerusalem Light Rail? Nu shoin. They’re doing that already.
But these aren’t even the Arabs that the government is referring to.
They’re referring to Arabs out there, somewhere else. In Jordan, in Saudi Arabia, in Iraq. Oy! Maybe even Yemen.
Jewish prayer on the Temple Mount will galvanize them to… to what exactly?
Riot in their own cities? Behead each other a little more? Somehow cross the desert to attack us? And the few that make it will what? Throw stones at the border fence before we shoot their legs? Maybe they’ll pass around pictures of Moshe Feiglin praying on the Temple Mount on their social network sites. That will really work them into a lather.
The claim that we’re concerned about the Arab reaction is a fictional one.
The Pisher-King of Jordan should be more worried about ISIS overrunning his kingdom, or of his oppressed “Palestinians” overthrowing his British imposed regime (which would resolve the two-state solution once and for all).
It seems Jewish prayer on the Temple Mount is more their problem than our problem.
If our government is against Jewish Prayer on the Temple Mount, it should say the real reason why.
Maintaining this so-called “status quo” is another farce.
For a few years after 1967, when we weren’t afraid of this fictional Arab rage, Jews would go up to the Temple Mount, and they would even openly pray there. So if anything, that’s the status quo I say we should return to (at a minimum).
A bunch of angry Arabs really isn’t something we need to worry about. They’re always angry, and look at what it’s got them.
