According to the story, Jews who want to visit their holiest site must register head of time with Israeli authorities. Only two sets of Jews are allowed to visit - a limit of 45 in one morning group and 15 in an afternoon group, so no more than 60 can visit on any day.
Notices of the new policy were posted at the Rambam (Moroccan) gate that non-Muslims use.
The official reason being given is that this is to maintain the security of Jews visiting the Temple Mount.
This is as blatant anti-Jewish discrimination as one can imagine. And it is being done by Israel.
Under these rules, I would not have been able to create my video tour of the Temple Mount, where I was able to ascend with a group of only three Jews and we had freedom to (generally) go at our own pace.
By contrast, 25,000 Muslims visited the Temple Mount last Friday.
Here is video of Jews "storming" the Temple Mount yesterday to "provoke the feelings" of Muslims who are harassing them.
לא תהיה הגבלה מראש על מספר המבקרים בהר הבית.המשטרה תעשה כל שביכולתה כדי לאפשר כניסה ולאבטח כמה שיותר מבקרים במהלך שעות הפתיחה של ההר.— גלעד ארדן (@giladerdan1) November 23, 2015
This blog may be a labor of love for me, but it takes a lot of effort, time and money. For over 11 years and over 22,000 articles I have been providing accurate, original news that would have remained unnoticed. I've written hundreds of scoops and sometimes my reporting ends up making a real difference. I appreciate any donations you can give to keep this blog going.
