Israel Police Banned Me from the Temple Mount on Vague Charges

Sunday, October 13th, 2013

Anyone who knows me is aware of the fact that when I visit The Temple Mount I go out of my way to be kind to all – tourists, the police, the Arabs. Beyond that, I am totally obedient to any request or instructions of the police.

The same was the situation this past Thursday – they told me to speak more softly, go here, go there, go slow, go fast – every request has been met in full.

As a licensed tour guide, I guided a group of Likud activists, this was the fourth group already that Thursday.

Everything seemed to be fine.

As we concluded, we shook hands with the policemen and officers that had accompanied us.

We thanked them, they said goodbye and even expressed that it was a successful visit, and it was all over.

Each one of us turned his way. I received a call from another group asking me to join. I came to the main entrance, went through the routine inspection and everything was fine.

Just before we actually entered the mountain, an officer came and told me I was detained for disturbing the public order on the Temple Mount. I was quite shocked. After an interrogation, I still have no idea what I am accused of.

I told the investigator that today was no different than the hundreds of other times I guided groups in the past. They ignored my protests and notified me of an unlimited ban from entering the Temple Mount.

As a matter of fact, while I was waiting at the police station, the police officers who earlier escorted me around the mountain entered the station and asked me what I was doing there. I told them that I was being arrested for disturbing the Temple Mount order. They asked me “when? But you were with us!” Then they were taken in to a room and someone “explained to them the issue.” One by one they came out and passed me without meeting my eyes.

I genuinely have no clue as to what the story is. Maybe there was some agreement with the Waqf (the Jordanian charity in charge of the Temple Mount compound) that the police will keep me away and they will stay quiet. Maybe it was an act of revenge against me for my criticizing the police – I really have no clue. It is absolutely clear that some decision was made about me, regardless of my real actions.

I have 15 groups scheduled for the coming month. This is my entire life and my main income. I’m the Father of a family of 8 children. Unfortunately, there is no one to talk to.

The group that was with me are very angry and want to send to the authorities a letter titled “blood libel,” though this is not my style. My lawyer issued a legal letter but I’m afraid it won’t do much good.

I think the main reason the police can get away with such behavior is that we gave up the Temple Mount. If Jews were part of the natural landscape on Temple Mount, things would be different.

Jews Come Home To The Temple Mount!

Temple Mount Organizations Warning Netanyahu on Feiglin’s Visit

Monday, April 29th, 2013

The Jewish Press just received the following text of a letter sent earlier to Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, regarding the latter’s order preventing the entry of MK Moshe Feiglin to Temple Mount.

Dear Sir,

We, members of the Joint Staff of the Temple Mount movements, read with great concern the news of your order preventing the entry of MK Moshe Feiglin to the Temple Mount area.

To our knowledge, MK Moshe Feiglin has been ascending to the Temple Mount each month for more than ten years. Every one of his visits has gone without any damage whatsoever to the public order.

Recently, the GSS has arrested a terrorists cell who tried to harm Jews climbing up to the Temple Mount. Once again it was proven publicly that Jewish visitors are not the source of violence on the Temple Mount.

In recent years we have seen a very welcome increase in the number of Jewish visotors to the Temple Mount, and the prevention of the entry of Jews in general and so much more so a Knesset Member from entering the Temple Mount, the holiest place for the Jewish people, constitutes a clear message of encouragement and support to parties that incite and perpetrate violence.

We fear that this step will give our enemies the tools to continue their incitement to violence and the violation of the Jewish freedom of worship in our capital.

We call on you at this time to immediately revoke your order preventing the entrance of MK Moshe Feiglin to the Temple Mount, and if you think there is a fear that his assent to the Temple Mount would endanger the public order, it is required that you instruct the numerous security personnel who are scattered all over the Temple Mount area to provide MK Moshe Feiglin with full protection of his liberty and of his immunity as a member of the Knesset.

Extremists Replace Al-Aqsa Dome with Bretslav Yarmulke

Tuesday, April 9th, 2013

The headline for this story translates roughly as “Extremists replace the picture of the Dome of the Rock with Talmudic writings.”

The Palestinian news site pls48.net reported:

Jewish religious leaders do not stop targeting the Al-Aqsa Mosque, trying to harm it in many ways, with daily attacks on the mosque and with Talmudic rituals which are a prelude to building a temple on its ruins.

In the latest attack on the Al-Aqsa Mosque, Yehuda Glick, one of the leaders of an extremist religious Jewish group, a promoter of the myth of temple rebuilding and one of the prominent settler organizers of incursions against the Al-Aqsa Mosque, published a photo in a special page on Facebook, showing the Dome of the Rock has been replaced by the hat worn by Jewish settlers and inscribed with Talmudic slogans, in an attempt to perpetuate the occupation by Jews and install the temple, which they claimed used to exist there – at the expense of the holy mosque.

The Al-Aqsa Foundation for the Protection of our Heritage said that these malicious actions demonstrate the magnitude of the plot that surrounds the entire Al-Aqsa Mosque and confirm the ambitions of the occupation, as part of an increasing number of desecrations targeting various holy sites.

It really makes you wonder if the Arabs still have a sense of humor, because if they don’t, then the Jews are definitely winning this one.
