Avraham Fuah being arrested for singing Hatikva on Har Habayit. Feb. 8, 2106.

Avraham Puah, 19, was arrested by police after he began to sing Hatikvah on Temple Mount Monday. Police say the youth was guilty of trying to disturb the public order on Temple Mount, where Jews are forbidden to pray by government decree, which is enforced by a Jordanian Islamic agency and Israel Police.

The short clip recording his arrest show police circle him as one of them literally shuts his mouth with his hand.

As this report is being prepared, Puah is still in prison.

Avraham’s brother, Yehuda Puah, head of the Betzalmo organization, which defends the human rights of Jews, said in a statement, “It is shameful that under an allegedly right-wing government the nation of Israel is degrading to such an extent the place of our temple. The bigger the establishment’s alienation from the place grows, the greater the yearning for the building of the temple is growing as well.”

Of the three policemen who apprehended the slightly built Avraham Puah, one shoved a hand on his mouth and dragged him away, one looked on to testify in the future against the criminal in court, and one recorded the scene on his own video, in case no one believes the second policeman.

  1. I am totally disgusted and angered by the actions of the police, but I can't say I am surprised. Arresting this kid for singing Hatikvah???? Seriously??? He wasn't praying!! They should be ashamed of themselves, but unfortunately they they would rather protect the rights of terrorists than the rights of Israeli Jews in Israel – and the Temple Mount IS in Israel!!! And yes – the police should be charged!

  2. Avi Silverman, HaTikvah is our national anthem, albeit perhaps a prayer or yearning for a peaceful homeland. Yet our political whores suppress it. Perhaps it is a good thing, that eventually they will overstep their mark and the Jews of Israel will no longer accept our galut homeland.

  3. Things around the world seem to be happening very quickly….but this instance where a Jewish boy can’t sing Hatikva on the Temple Mount, and all that it implies from a political standpoint, let alone a religious one just makes me think there is not a lot of time left. Hope I am wrong. Pray to G-d every night that the Islamic religion would become a religion of peace and love.

  4. Baloney! Do NOT invent Torah. Learn some from the rabbis who KNOW the issue, like RamBa”M, who went up to pray, and those before him who had BUILT A BETH KENESSETH ON THE MOUNT, which had been destroyed by the Crusaders by the time RaMba”M went up; do NOT learn from those who rely ONLY on the opinions of medieval rabbis who were never here. Har Habayt, see Torah, is 500×500 amoth. TODAY’S Har Habayit is more than DOUBLE that size, about 1500×1000 amoth. BESIDES, le-shem qibbush and even qorban, taharah is NOT necessary, when ROV HA-‘AM tameh, IT IS PLAIN HALAKHÀ! IN FACT, VERY BIG RABBIS GO-UP, and those who forbid it ADD TO TORAH and do it for POLITICAL REASONS. http://www.mikdash.org

  5. It is ALL because of distortion of Torah, and those who say FALSELY that Jews cannot go up to the Mount. People should learn some from the rabbis who KNOW the issue, like RamBa”M, who went up to pray, and those before him who had BUILT A BETH KENESSETH ON THE MOUNT, which had been destroyed by the Crusaders by the time RaMba”M went up. They should NOT learn from those who rely ONLY on the opinions of medieval rabbis who were never here. Har Habayt, see Torah, is 500×500 amoth. TODAY’S Har Habayit is more than DOUBLE that size, about 1500×1000 amoth. BESIDES, le-shem qibbush and even qorban, taharah is NOT necessary, when ROV HA-‘AM tameh, IT IS PLAIN HALAKHÀ! IN FACT, VERY BIG RABBIS GO-UP, and those who forbid it ADD PROHIBITIONS TO TORAH AS THEY ARE ACCUSTOMED TO BY FRUMMISM, just like the “Gebrochte fricks”, or do it for POLITICAL REASONS. http://www.mikdash.org

  6. I think the police are just FINE with the situation or they would be enforcing Israeli LAW, as defined by multiple court decisions and not the rules they simply have made up as they go along to try to appease the Muslims (which doesn’t really happen anyway. Just emboldens them to push harder against weakness).

  7. I am ashamed of the attitude of all people who disallow prayer on the temple mount or anywhere. Prayer is worship before GOD. And a man or woman who stops one from praying is in danger of the judgement of hellfire and brimstone cast down from our LORD and FATHER in heaven. Be careful of stopping prayer worship as you may be stopping an angels prayer.

  8. I sorry but I have a serious off topic question I'd like to ask that may be one of you can answer or refer me to someone who can……How can products be considered to be KOSHER and display the circle U or K if they use GMO ingredients…?

  9. Back in my young and foolish and judgemental days, I used to wonder that question about infant formula, and candy. The point is, if it's not violating the Torah, it's kosher. There are many things in recent history that have been reported, by scientists, as being harmful. Then later on, it was like, "Oops, never mind." Like Alar, butter, and eggs, to name a few. Anyone else out there, feel free to add to this.
