Indictments have been filed against three Jerusalem Arabs, including one minor, who were involved in making pipe bombs to attack police on the Al Aqsa mosque and compound on the Temple Mount during the recent High Holidays.
A gag order on the arrests of the gang was lifted Friday. Two adults from Jabel Mukaber, an Arab hotbed of terror and adjacent to the Jewish neighborhood of Talpiot, were charged with buying equipment and explosives for the bombs.
The two Arabs took materials to the home of a minor, who made 13 pipe bombs, 10 of which that were discovered during a police raid before last month’s Rosh HaShanah holiday.
The other three bombs were smuggled and later discovered on the Temple Mount, where Muslims forbid Jews from bringing any objects that are considered religious.
Muslims have accused Israel of violating their freedom of worship by preventing them from ascending to the holy site.
If “freedom of worship” means praying with pipe bombs, they are right.
