Muslims at the Kotel

Monday, May 18th, 2015

A group of Muslim tourists visited the Kotel the other week.

They weren’t yelled at, they weren’t assaulted, they didn’t need police protection.

If they chose to, they could have even prayed.

What a shame a Jew can’t do the same on the Temple Mount.

But THIS Is Allowed on the Temple Mount!!!

Thursday, May 14th, 2015

This speech was given on the Temple Mount in Jerusalem two weeks ago.

“They must convert to Islam, or pay the jizya poll tax, or else, you should seek the help of Allah and fight them.”

“You should fight them even if they do not fight you.”

Meanwhile, it’s Rabbi Yehuda Glick, who the police want to prevent from going up!

Police Appeal Decision Allowing Glick Onto Temple Mount

Tuesday, May 12th, 2015

The Israeli police have appealed the decision of a Jerusalem court that granted human rights activist, Rabbi Yehuda Glick, permission to once again go up to the Temple Mount.

The police also asked permission to prevent Glick from going up until they receive an answer to their appeal, according to a YNet report.

The police claim, Glick’s “going up to the Temple Mount could lead to riots and a public safety risk.”

The soft-spoke Rabbi miraculously survived an Arab assassination attempt in October last year in Jerusalem, when he was shot four times at close range.

Glick’s primary source of income is working as a tour guide on the Temple Mount.

Unfortunately, the police would prefer to prevent Glick from working and entering the Temple Mount, than dealing with the Muslim instigators that harass him and other Jewish visitors to the Jewish people’s holiest site.

Police Arrest Groom for Allegedly Praying on Temple Mount

Sunday, May 10th, 2015

Jerusalem police Sunday morning arrested a young man who ascended the Temple Mount allegedly prayed there before his wedding at night.

The Honenu legal defense organization said one of its lawyers is at the police station and trying to win the release of the man.

The Israeli government accepted the Muslim Waqf authority on the Temple Mount. The Waqf forbids Jews and Christians from carrying any religious items to the holy site, and it goes berserk when one of its guards sees a Jew even moving his lips and possibly uttering a prayer to God.

It is not known exactly what the groom allegedly said.

The Chief Rabbinate of Israel prohibits Jews from ascending the Temple Mount on the basis of Halachic rulings, but many rabbis in recent years have permitted and even encouraged going to certain areas after the traditional immersion in a ritual bath.

Last week, a groom identified as Michael Basus visited the holy site before his wedding and stopped long enough to speak at the Grooms and Mourners Gate to talk about Judaism.

The Talmud relates a discussion of how Jews in the time of the Holy Temples comforted mourners and praise the grooms.

Below is the video, in Hebrew, of Basus and his friends on the way to the Temple Mount, under police guard.

“Glick, You’re Alive!”

Sunday, May 10th, 2015

Just days after a Jerusalem court gave Yehuda Glick permission to go up to the Temple Mount, Glick found himself once again assaulted by Muslims.

Glick hasn’t been up onto the Temple Mount since he was shot four times by an Arab assassin in Jerusalem and miraculously survived the attack.

The court ruled that Glick can go up only once a month, may not carry a cellphone with him, and can’t call out in a provocative manner.

The police did not appeal the court’s decision.

Glick works as a tour guide, and used to go up 3 times a day as part of his livelihood. This restriction will hurt him financially.

Apparently Glick’s carrying a phone annoyed the Muslims on the Temple Mount, presumably because he was able to record them harassing him.

As Glick walked in the Old City he was harassed by Arabs cursing “Allahu Achbar”.

The Arabs were shocked when they realized it was Yehuda Glick they were cursing.

One of them yelled out in surprise, “Glick, you’re alive!”

Court Allows Glick on Temple Mount – without Cell Phone

Tuesday, May 5th, 2015

The Jerusalem Court ruled Tuesday morning that Rabbi Yehuda Glick can ascend the Temple Mount once a month on condition that he does not take a mobile cell phone with him.

Judge Miraim Kasklasi rejected demands from the police that Glick be barred from the Temple Mount because he is a “dangerous man.”

Glick, who has recovered from critical bullet wounds from an assassination attempt last year, said last week he would be willing to visit the site in a wheelchair and with his hands tied. His lawyer told the court that if he is so dangerous, the police should not even let him out of his house.

The judge said Tuesday that Glick cannot take his cell phone with him in order not “to aggravate Muslims.”

The court apparently does not understand that it is not Glick and not his cell phone that infuriates Muslims on the Temple Mount. Rather, it is Glick’s faith.

God does not need a cell phone to hear prayers, which is why the Muslim Waqf prohibits them from being uttered

Police Ban Yehuda Glick on Temple Mount because He Is ‘Dangerous’

Friday, May 1st, 2015

Temple Mount activist Yehuda Glick, who was critically wounded in an assassination attempt last year, applied to the Jerusalem Court this week to overturn a police order barring him from the Temple Mount because he is ” a dangerous man.”

Glick said he would be willing to ascend the holy site in a wheelchair and with his hands tied.

He has confounded police for years because of his mild and non-violent manner during his visits and attempted visits to the Temple Mount, where Arabs always are on hand to throw rocks at him and force him and his police escort off the holy site.

A Jerusalem Arab shot Glick at close range last October at the Begin Center,  and not at the Temple Mount or even in the Old City, a fact that gave Glick’s lawyer an opportunity to unmask the police department’s argument that he is “dangerous”.

His attorney asked Judge Miriam Kaslasi if she thinks Glick’s attackers are not dangerous and suggested that if Glick is a menace to the public, perhaps the police should not let him out of his house.

The lawyer added:

It is unreasonable to punish a man because others want to harm him. Police don’t want Glick n the Temple Mount because they do not want to fight against Arab terror there. Glick’s appearance on the Temple Mouton encourages others to ascend, and that makes work for the police.

The police hate hard work and prefer an easy life.

The court has yet ruled on Glick’s appeal.
