Religious Student Blocked From Temple Mount as Class Goes Up

Friday, June 5th, 2015

Last Thursday, Hebrew University professor Roni Allenblum took his “Geographical History of Jerusalem” class up to the Temple Mount, or rather, most of his class.

Aryeh Copelan is the only religious, kipa-wearing Jewish student in the class who decided to join the class’s field trip.

Despite wearing a baseball cap the police at the entrance realized Copelan was a religious Jew and forbade his entrance, according to a Makor Rishon report.

The rest of the class were allowed through unhindered.

How’s that for police discrimination?

Police Forbid Yehuda Glick from Ascending to Temple Mount

Thursday, June 4th, 2015

Once again, the Israeli police misunderstand what their job actually is.

The court has accepted an appeal by the police, and have allowed the police to once again forbid Rabbi Yehuda Glick from going up to the Temple Mount.

Last year, Glick was shot 4 times by an Arab assassin, nad miraculously survived the attack. The Muslim terrorist was subsequently killed in a shootout with police.

The police believe that Glick’s presence will provoke the Arabs to committing violence. Even a cup of water will do that.

Screeching Muslim Women Assault Jewish Man Drinking Water

Thursday, June 4th, 2015

A Jewish man went to get a drink of water from the public water fountain while visiting the Temple Mount.

He was immediately assaulted by half a dozen screeching Muslim women, cursing everyone with their “Allahu Achbar”.

The police decided that the the problem was the thirsty Jewish man and told him to get a drink outside the Temple Mount.

Another Jewish man who did succeed in getting a drink was arrested.

The police have decided that Jews may not carry water with them when visiting the Temple Mount, and there are reports that the Muslims are shutting off the fountains during times when Jews are allowed to visit.

Does anyone else see a problem here?

Police Detain 2 Muslims for Harassing Visitors on the Temple Mount

Thursday, May 28th, 2015

According to the police spokesperson, two Muslims praying on the Temple Mount (that’s how the police described them), were detained for questioning by the police after they tried to harass visitors on the Temple Mount. The visits continued after the disturbance.

It’s unusual for the police to detain the Muslims who harass visitors on the Temple Mount.

One Boy’s Spontaneous Civil Disobedience Protest at the Temple Mount

Tuesday, May 26th, 2015

After 2 hours of being forced to wait, as hundred of non-Jewish tourists walked past them and were granted access to tour the Temple Mount, one young Jewish boy had enough of the Israeli police’s discrimination against religious Jews and launched a spontaneous, one-boy, non-violent, civil disobedience protest.

The boy single-handedly closed the entrance to EVERYONE, demanding that religious Jewish visitors, who were forced to wait outside for 2 hours, as everyone else passed them by, be allowed to go up to the Temple Mount too.

Joining his protest was an even younger boy.

The boy made cogent arguments and the police were clearly out-numbered by the young civil rights protester and his friend.

The police arrested them.

After the arrest, Shlomo Walfish, who filmed the video, explained in English to the watching tourists what the boy was saying and about this illegal discrimination by the police.

I see a bright future for this boy as a community organizer and civil rights activist.

And if more young Jews are willing to demand and protest for it, the state and the police will be forced to end their discrimination against religious Jews going up to the Temple Mount.

Israel’s 5-Year Upgrade Plan for Western Wall

Tuesday, May 19th, 2015

Israel’s new government has approved a five-year plan to upgrade and further develop the area around the Western Wall.

The project is already raising tensions because the Palestinian Authority is demanding Israel hand over the Old City plus much of the rest of Israel’s capital, as well as all of Judea, Samaria and Gaza to create a new Arab country to be called “Palestine.”

The Western Wall is part of the Temple Mount compound, Judaism’s holiest site, the sole remnant of the ancient Holy Temple of Jerusalem.

The Temple Mount area is also sacred to Muslims, and is considered the third holiest site in Islam.

To both, the site represents the heartbeat of the religious universe.

Israel plans to develop the area with upgraded infrastructure, improved archaeological activity and, further development of the Western Wall site, and underground tunnels that run along the length of the Wall.

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.
