Algemeiner Editor-in-Chief: New Temple Mount Security Measures ‘Responsible Governance’ on Israel’s Part After Terror Attack
Following last Friday’s terrorist attack at the Temple Mount in which two Israeli policemen were killed, Palestinian leaders have been seeking to “rile up” their public, the editor-in-chief of The Algemeiner said during an appearance on i24 News on Tuesday.
The demands being made that Israel remove the metal detectors it put in place at the entrances to the Temple Mount following the incident are “undermining the rights of people to be safe and secure,” Dovid Efune stated during a debate with Mai Abdul Rahman — the president of the American Palestinian Women’s Association — on the “Crossroads” program, which is hosted by David Shuster and Michelle Makori.
Efune called the increased security measures at the sensitive hilltop holy site “responsible governance” on Israel’s part.
Furthermore, he noted, the status quo that has prevailed on the Temple Mount since 1967 has not changed.
“Everything remains the same, except it’s a little bit more secure,” Efune said.
