As Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu took part today in services for Israel’s Memorial Day – Yom HaZikaron – on Jerusalem’s Mount Herzl, he was surrounded by an exceptionally large and unprecedented security detail, Israel’s Channel 2 news reported.

The security detail included hundreds of personnel. To ensure the Prime Minister’s safety, a unit of security officers specializing in protecting dignitaries was stationed on Mount Herzl, including elite Yamam officers. Snipers were positioned throughout the area, accompanied by soldiers with binoculars, ready to detect any threat to the Prime Minister’s safety.

Photos from the ceremony showed the armed security guards, some of them masked, standing next to Prime Minister Netanyahu and guarding his motorcade for the duration of the ceremony for Israel’s fallen soldiers and security personnel.

The security guards have become necessary because of the Prime Minister’s many long and public events which are made known to the public in advance, including the timing and location, Channel 2 news reported.

    I want to thank all the personnel who are guarding our Prime Minister Bibi for their vigilance in protecting him.

  • 1925 Wakf Temple Mount Guide or Temple mount – in Jerusalem
    taken by force 16 pages.
    Page 1 Cover and page 2 picture view of the Haram area from North to West
    In 1925 Moslems that controlled Temple Mount produced this guide which as it turns out is a pretty accurate history showing that they do NOT hold the original claim to the mount, but instead, took it by force. Admitting that even their own scholars admit it belonged to the Jewish people.
    Before 637 CE/AD Jerusalem was the Capital of the Jewish people for over a thousand years. Thereafter it was occupied by various conquering Nations as Occupied territory, It was allocated to the Jewish people after WWI under the 1920 San Remo Treaty and confirmed by the 1920 Treaty of Sevres and Lausanne.
    Read it for yourself and decide. Don’t take my word for it.

    A Brief Guide To AL-HARAM AL-SHARIF JERUSALEM – Temple Mount
    Published by the Supreme Muslim Counsel 1925
    The two principal edifices are the Dome of the Rock, on a raised platform in the middle, and the mosque of al-Aqsa against the south wall. Other buildings which we shall consider later lie dotted about here and there. On the left along the east wall the double portals of the Golden Gate appear. On every side, trees break the prospect, which lend a peculiar charm to the scene.
    The side is one of the oldest in the world. Its sanctity dates from the earliest (perhaps from pre-historic) times. Its identity with the site of Solomon’s is beyond dispute. This, too, is the spot, according to universal belief, on which “David built there an altar unto the Lord, and offered burnt offerings and peace offerings”. (1)
    On the east side of the Dome of the Rock, facing the Bab Daub. or gate of David, stands an elegant little edifice, also surmounted by a dome, which look at first sight like a miniature representation of its larger brother. The room which supports the Dome and it’s drum rests on two concentric rows of columns neither of which is encased by walls. On the south side is a Mihrab, that is to say the prayer-recess. The edifice is variously known as Mahkamat Daud, (i.e. Tribunal of David) and Qubbat al-Silsileh (i.e. Dome of the Chain), from the legendary belief that on its site was the place of Judgments where verdicts were given by a miraculous chain. For as the legend has it, a chain was once suspended

    from heaven over this spot, to which it was the practice in Solomon’s time to appeal in cases of conflicting evidence. Each witness was made to grasp the chain in turn: if he succeed in holding it, his truthfulness was thereby vindicated, but if it eluded his grasp, then he was a manifest liar.

    In the west wall of the chamber, a door opens into a stair-case descending to Solomon’s Stables. This is a vast subterranean chamber, of roughly rectangular shape, of which the chief feature is the imposing size of the piers. Of these, there are fifteen rows of varying size and height supporting the vaults on which rests the roof. Little is known for certain of the early history of the chamber itself. It dates probably as far back as the construction of Solomon’s Temple. According to Josephus, it was in existence and was used as a place of refuge by the Jews at the time of the conquest of Jerusalem by Titus in the year 70 A.D..
