Public Security Ministers Threatens to Bar MKs from Temple Mount

Thursday, November 13th, 2014

Public Security Minister Yitzhak Aharonovitch told Israeli television Wednesday that he will prohibit Knesset Members from visiting the Temple Mount if he thinks doing so will endanger the public, meaning that it will anger the Arab Muslims who endanger public security.

In response, the spokesman for Housing Minister Uri Ariel, a frequent visitor to the Temple Mount, told The Jewish Press, “It won’t happen. Aharonovitch has brought up the idea before, and it is just political propaganda.”

He added that if Aharonovitch, a member of the Yisrael Beitenu party, would think about what will happen to the coalition government if he is serious about such a drastic move.

If visits by MKs “may lead to riots, I will not allow them to go,” he told Channel 1.

That is how Aharonovitch keep the public order. Don’t let the Jews “make trouble” and the Arabs won’t make trouble.

And once the Arabs understand that, Aharonovitch will have to start maintaining public security by issuing one-way tickets for Jews to leave the country

Before that happens, he has a better idea – using magnometers to screen Arabs before they enter the site.

It is not such a new concept. They were used until the intifada began to take a brief recess in the late 1990s when then-Prime Minister Ehud Barak was ready to hand over almost all of Judea and Samaria and parts of Jerusalem to Yasser Arafat.

Months after the magnometers were removed. The Oslo War, or Second Intifada, broke out, but no Public Security minister thought that maybe putting them back into use would keep out terrorists.

It took nearly three weeks after the attempted murder of Temple activist Rabbi Yehuda Glick for Aharonovitch to wake up and decide to use magnometers again.

Of course using them might make Arabs anger.

Rabbi Glick, whose medical condition has improved to the point where doctors report his life no longer is in danger, will undoubtedly wasn’t to thank God for his remarkable recovery by ascending the Temple Mount.

But that might incite riots.

Will Aharonovitch elevate Rabbi Glick to the status of Knesset Member and tell him to go home?

Better yet, perhaps Aharonovitch will go home.

Road Terror Continues in Jerusalem

Thursday, November 6th, 2014

Arabs in Jerusalem hurled rocks at passing motorists on Thursday in the mixed Arab-Jewish neighborhood of A-Tur (Abu Tor).

Six vehicles were damaged in separate rock attacks by Arabs but miraculously, none of the drivers or their passengers were physically hurt.

Border Patrol police officers searched the surrounding area of the attacks for the perpetrators and investigators will follow up, police said.

Sixteen people were arrested Wednesday by Jerusalem District Police for disrupting the public order.

In the past two weeks, nearly 200 suspects – 188 people, including 71 minors under age 18 – were arrested on charges of disrupting the public order in the Israeli capital.

Jewish Prayer on the Temple Mount Will Galvanize the Arabs to… to What Exactly?

Tuesday, November 4th, 2014

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.

Arabs Attack Police and Civilians in Jerusalem

Monday, November 3rd, 2014

Arabs hurled rocks and shot off fireworks at Israel Police in Jerusalem this afternoon (Monday, Nov. 3).

District police used standard riot dispersal methods to control the mob, including firing tear gas canisters.

Arab attackers also hurled rocks at a minibus passing near the Mount of Olives, in a separate incident.

The windshield of the vehicle was smashed but none of the passengers were physically injured.

Israeli security forces immediately began searching the area to hunt down the perpetrators.

When and if the attackers are caught, they may be punished with up to 20 years in prison due to a newly-stiffened penalty whose severity was harshened by the government cabinet this week.

Both attacks involved dozens of Arabs and took place in areas of Jerusalem that were restored to the capital in 1967 during the Six Day War.

Earlier in the day, police arrested three Arab residents of the Jerusalem A-Tur neighborhood. The suspects were taken into custody and charged in connection with last month’s destruction of tombstones at the Mount of Olives cemetery.

Arabs Stalking MK Moshe Feiglin on Temple Mount

Sunday, November 2nd, 2014

In the days before an Islamic Jihad terrorist attempted to kill Temple Mount activist Rabbi Yehuda Glick, the rabbi’s name was a local household word, and his photo was everywhere. (He remains in grave condition, although his health is gradually improving.)

Likud Knesset member Moshe Feiglin, who heads the ‘Manhigut Yehudi‘ (Jewish Leadership) faction of the party, is also a very familiar face around town, having long been active as an advocate for Jews to freely enter and pray on the Temple Mount.

Feiglin visited the holy site this morning (Sunday, Nov. 2), the first time in nearly a week that the Temple Mount was open to Jews.

It was discovered over the weekend that the MK is also now being stalked by Arabs with cameras.

Photos of Feiglin snapped by various Arabs have reached the Tazpit news agency after having emerged on Arab web and social media sites.

Arabs were seen today (Sunday, Nov. 2) photographing and distributing pictures of MK Moshe Feiglin on the Temple Mount.

In both YouTube video clips seen here, one can clearly see that the MK now has a close security detail escorting him, at least while he is on the Temple Mount.

Outraged Israelis and other supporters from abroad, including other Muslims, are still asking how an assassin was able to get so close to Glick — a known Jerusalem personality advocating for co-existence on the Temple Mount, a controversial cause — in the first place. Feiglin has been assigned a security detail following last week’s assassination attempt on Glick. He and several other MKs, including one cabinet minister, all attended the conference at the Begin Center where Glick was a guest speaker.

Feiglin himself spoke with Glick after the program and left the venue just 20 minutes before the attack. The shooter – an 11-year veteran of the Israeli prison system who worked at the Center’s restaurant – was apparently waiting nearby and simply watching for the right moment during Feiglin’s conversation with Glick.

On Friday, police arrested a second man they suspect may have been involved in the assassination attempt on Yehudah Glick on Wednesday at the Begin Center, according to Israel’s Channel 2 TV news. The second suspect who was arrested worked at the Begin Center’s “Terasa” restaurant with the shooter, Ibrahim Mut’az Hijazi.

On the day the assassin fired at Glick, it wasn’t Feiglin that he wanted: it was the Temple Mount activist rabbi.

Glick’s killer is dead, having made the mistake of opening fire at the Israel Police counter terror Yamam forces who tracked him down and came to arrest him late that night.

Nevertheless, now Feiglin is being followed and his photo is being snapped for positive identification – perhaps to help another assassin?
