Burka-clad Muslim women who harassed a group of Jews visiting the Temple Mount. One of them viciously punched a Jewish woman in the ribs. No arrest was made.

Arab women and children who have spent more than a week harassing Jewish visitors to the Temple Mount were barred from entering the site this morning (Tuesday, August 25) by security forces.

Adult Arab men with Israeli identification cards are being allowed to enter the site, according to Israel Police, but are being asked to leave within a half hour of their entry. In addition, Israel Police are not allowing the men to gather in groups at the exit of the Temple Mount, next to Ohel Yitzchak and harass Jews, as has happened in the past.


There have been reports of clashes at the exit gates of the Temple Mount near Ohel Yitzchak with Muslims who were pushed back after they had attempted to attack Jews within the compound.

Nevertheless, visits to the site were allowed to continue despite the attempted provocations, which are aimed precisely at forcing the police to close the site to non-Muslims.

The restrictions came in the wake of recent violence by the burka-clad women and Arab children, who were terrorizing every Jewish visitor to the site. The Arab hecklers clearly answered to Islamic authorities, who were seen in several videos telling them to be quiet during questioning at the entrance to the site — and they immediately lowered the volume of their chants.

Once away from the entrance, however, the Arab women and children instantly resumed clapping their hands in visitors’ faces, bursting water balloons and popping other balloons, and incessantly screaming “Allahu Akbar! (God is Great) at the top of their lungs, crowding as close to the Jews as possible.

Last week one burka-clad Arab woman viciously punched an elderly Jewish woman in the ribs and then swiftly slipped back among the other burka-clad women; it was impossible to know who was guilty of the assault.

  1. It is about time. I can’t imagine how terrible it would be to visit the Temple Mount and encounter those Muslims. It is bad enough that Israel was so cowardly as to give it over to them and they proceeded to dig up the place for yet another underground mosque shattering the agreement, and destroying Jewish temple artifacts.

  2. Where the hell are UNESCO and the World Heritage Fund? They scream and wring their useless hands over Palmyra, but this systematic Judeopathic destruction of our Temple has been going on for years by the Waqf and their jihadist simps and not as much as a peep out of those ‘stewards’ of world heritage! Disgusting.

  3. I wonder why it took so long to finally for the Police to do the right thing. You cannot be nice to the enemy and ignore everythin else. Also how is the police moritore the half an hour time that the men can be at the site? It's another concession to the guys who do the trouble.
    Maybe it's time to also montitore the trafffic at the Mpunt of Olives were many Jews have been attacked, hurt and some died on the spot or later in the hospital.
