Partially released for publication (Additional information related to the planned attack is expected to be released in the coming days):
Three eastern Jerusalem Arabs were indicted Friday for plotting to attack Knesset Member Moshe Feiglin and Rabbi Yehuda Glick on the Temple Mount last month, the day before another Jerusalem Arab tried to kill Glick.
The indictment was filed in Jerusalem on Friday against three Arabs, one of them, age 18 and the others 20 and 21 years old. They planned to stay overnight at the holy site and attack with fireworks and rocks when Glick and Feiglin were planning to visit the next morning, October 30. The day before, Glick was nearly fatally shot after he spoke at the Begin Center in Jerusalem.
The terrorists’ plan was that during an ensuing riot, they would flee to the Al Aqsa mosque and then walk away, untouched among a throng of Muslims.
Police had kept the arrests of the three Arabs under cover until Friday, which helps explain why National Police Commissioner Yohanan Danino and Public Security Minister Yitzchak Aharonovitch have been so adamant that Knesset Members not visit the Temple Mount.
The MK’s presence only riles up Arab terrorists and makes trouble for the police. If you can eliminate the cause for attempted murder, then there won’t be murders.
The only problem with this scenario, as most of our readers know, is that telling Arab crazies that Knesset Members cannot visit the Temple Mount has the opposite effect and gives them the incentive to plan attacks on any Jew who dares arrive at the site.
The reason for violence is not Knesset Members who visit the Temple Mount.
The reason for violence is that the security and court system allows them to be violent.
