In the Jerusalem Post we read:
Two Border Police officers were lightly injured in clashes with Arab youths at the Temple Mount on Sunday morning.Enough is enough.
The rioters threw fireworks and rocks at security forces upon the opening of the mount to Jewish worshipers. Police responded with riot dispersal measures.
Police arrested 24 people for disturbing the peace.
The Temple Mount was again closed to visitors following the disturbance.
Prior to the closing of the facilities Moshe Feiglin and hundreds of Jewish tourists visited the mount.
The disturbances followed similar violence on Wednesday at the holy site.
Handing the Temple Mount over to the Islamic Waqf was a monumental mistake by Moshe Dayan in dire need of correction. The Muslim custodians have actively sought to erase any trace of Jewish history within Judaism's holiest site, they destroy priceless historical and archaeological artifacts, and they get violent at the sight of a Jew so much as moving her lips in silent prayer.
And this is within the Jewish State of Israel.
This is simply unacceptable and Israel needs to declare sovereignty over the Mount and release the Waqf from any administrative authority. The Temple Mount should be open to anyone and everyone who wishes to ascend it for the purpose of prayer.
Period. End of story.
Furthermore, the Jews of Israel should not be afraid of Arab-Muslim rock-throwers.
On the contrary, Arab-Muslim rock-throwers need to learn some fear of the Jews.
