A Member of Israel’s Knesset has stated that as a result of Jews being prevented from praying at Judaism’s holiest site, “Hamas and ISIS control the Temple Mount”.
Deputy Knesset Speaker Moshe Feiglin (Likud) attacked the Israeli police’s decision to close Jerusalem’s Temple Mount to Jewish worshipers on Sukkot. Sukkot is one of the three Jewish pilgrimage holidays that in ancient times required Jews to travel to the Temple in Jerusalem – a practice maintained today.
The decision to bar Jewish worshipers comes following an onslaught of violent Arab riots against police and Jewish visitors to the mount.
“Hamas and ISIS have taken control of the Temple Mount for the fourth day [of Sukkot]. The Prime Minister’s words claiming victory over Hamas and sending a message of deterrence to Hezbollah are crashing into a rock on the Temple Mount in Jerusalem”, Feiglin said Sunday morning.
“Hamas representatives and ISIS members have been able to barricade themselves at the mount. Meanwhile, (Yitzhak) Aharonovich (Minister of Internal Security – ed.) prevents police from arresting terrorists in the heart of the capital, which would free the mount from their hands and allow Jews to ascend to the Temple during Sukkot.”
Thousands of people came to the Western Wall Sunday morning to attend the Birkat Kohanim (Priestly Blessing) ceremony. Despite the mass of visitors, police closed the Temple Mount for Jews, stating that the decision was made following a security assessment.
