The Temple Institute’s Yitzchak Reuven was interviewed by France 24 television on November 4, in a fairly accurate, if shallow, 3-minute story about recent Temple Mount related events. They also covered the Knesset committee dealing with Jewish access to Temple Mount, including the outbursts of Arab MKs, who, basically, warned that if Jews would start going nup to the mountain they, the Arabs, would be so angry, they’d start a third intifada.
Those Arabs have a lot of anger issues, if you ask me.
France 24 also interviewed a rabbi who explains why we shouldn’t go up, and Yehuda Glick, who makes a living taking guided tours to the holy site.
Altogether, it’s a better reporting job than most.
