Deputy Speaker of the Knesset, MK Moshe Feiglin (Likud), spoke with JewishPress.com on Sunday evening, following his morning visit to the Temple Mount.

The topic of the discussion were the Muslim photographs and videos of Feiglin in the Old City and on the Temple Mount, and their subsequent distribution throughout Arab and Islamic forums and social media networks, as first reported on JewishPress.com.

For maximum provocation, some of those videos were entitled with variations of the theme, “Moshe Feiglin storms Al Aqsa Mosque”.

Normally, such intense Islamic focus on Moshe Feiglin might be overlooked, but following the targeted assassination attempt on Temple Activist Yehudah Glick, there is now serious cause for concern.

The specific circulation of so many of Feiglin’s photos indicates that the Islamists have their eye on him.

We asked Moshe Feiglin if the threat to him is real, as it was to Yehuda Glick, and if he is afraid as a result.

We would add that the government assigned a permanent security detail to Feiglin following the assassination attempt on Yehuda Glick at the Begin Center conference on Wednesday night. Feiglin and other MKs were in attendance at the conference that night.

Arabs photographed and distributed pictures of Moshe Feiglin on the Temple Mount, Nov. 2, 2014.

Moshe told JewishPress.com that IDF soldiers recently fought in Gaza, and it was very dangerous, and that was their front. He [Moshe] is blessed to be able to fight on our most important front, the Temple Mount, which is the key to our existence in the Land of Israel.

Moshe said the threat to him is real, but it is not something new.

He is not afraid, because when you are doing something bigger than yourself, you’re not afraid.

He added that we all pray for Yehuda Glick to recover and get back to himself.

  1. If you are so sure that “Palestine , the country, goes back through most of recorded history,” I expect you to be able to answer a few basic questions about that country of Palestine :
    1) When was it founded and by whom?
    2) What were its borders?
    3) What was its capital?
    4) What were its major cities?
    5) What constituted the basis of its economy?
    6) What was its form of government?
    7) Can you name at least one Palestinian leader before Arafat?
    8) Was Palestine ever recognized by a country whose existence, at that time or now, leaves no room for interpretation?
    9) What was the language of the country of Palestine ?
    10) What was the prevalent religion of the country of Palestine ?
    11) What was the name of its currency? Choose any date in history and tell what was the approximate exchange rate of the Palestinian monetary unit against the US dollar, German mark, GB pound, Japanese yen, or Chinese yuan on that date.
    And, finally, since there is no such country today, what caused its demise and when did it occur?
    You are lamenting the “low sinking” of a “once proud” nation. Please tell me, when exactly was that “nation” proud and what was it so proud of?
    And here is the least sarcastic question of all: If the people you mistakenly call “Palestinians” are anything but generic Arabs collected from all over — or thrown out of — the Arab world, if they really have a genuine ethnic identity that gives them right for self-determination, why did they never try to become independent until Arabs suffered their devastating defeat in the Six Day War?
    I hope you avoid the temptation to trace the modern day “Palestinians” to the Biblical Philistines: substituting etymology for history won’t work here.
    The truth should be obvious to everyone who wants to know it. Arab countries have never abandoned the dream of destroying Israel ; they still cherish it today. Having time and again failed to achieve their evil goal with military means, they decided to fight Israel by proxy. For that purpose, they created a terrorist organization, cynically called it “the Palestinian people” and installed it in Gaza , Judea, and Samaria . How else can you explain the refusal by Jordan and Egypt to unconditionally accept back the “West Bank” and Gaza , respectively?
    The fact is, Arabs populating Gaza, Judea, and Samaria have much less claim to nationhood than that Indian tribe that successfully emerged in Connecticut with the purpose of starting a tax-exempt casino: at least that tribe had a constructive goal that motivated them. The so-called “Palestinians” have only one motivation: the destruction of Israel , and in my book that is not sufficient to consider them a nation” — or anything else except what they really are: a terrorist organization that will one day be dismantled.
    In fact, there is only one way to achieve peace in the Middle East . Arab countries must acknowledge and accept their defeat in their war against Israel and, as the losing side should, pay Israel reparations for the more than 50 years of devastation they have visited on it. The most appropriate form of such reparations would be the removal of their terrorist organization from the land of Israel and accepting Israel ‘s ancient sovereignty over Gaza , Judea, and Samaria.
    That will mark the end of the Palestinian people. What are you saying again was its beginning?
