“The police are afraid, and do not allow the entry of more than 20 to 30 Jews at once,” said activist Yehuda Glick, who witnessed the incident, Israel National News reported.

“Hundreds of Jews wait an hour, two hours, and even three hours in the hot sun at the entrance, raising tensions at the Temple Mount,” he added.

The beating comes after former Member of Knesset Michael Ben-Ari was booted from the Temple Mount on Sunday.

“I arrived at the Temple Mount now, at the entrance the guard in the guard booth informed me that by the order of the commander I was forbidden from entering the Temple mount, with no trial, no warning, just like that,” Ben-Ari wrote on Facebook.

    By alowing their most Holy site, The Temple Mount, to be controlled by moslems, Israel shows to the whole world that it wants peace. If the world can not understand this,if they can not see this, then there is nothing Israel could ever do to make the rest of the world believe that it wants peace.

    The dome of the rock, that abomanation, should be removed and let Israel rebuild their Temple. It could just be, that God Himself,will remove it.
    God bless and protect Israel !!!

  • We are living in the endtimes….very exciting!

    As long as the Israeli government continues to turn a blind eye to this sort of Muslim violence against Jews, it will continue – and rest of the world will continue to disrespect Israel.
