Today over 300 Jews lined up at Mugrabim Gate of the Temple Mount to celebrate the liberation of the Mount in the 1967 “6 Days War”.
Sadly once again the Israeli police with orders from above created serious limitations on Jewish ascent to the Mount:
These limitations included:
1. Only allowing 10 Jews to enter the Temple Mount at a time.
2. For the Jews that did enter they were only allowed a very brief stay of 4-5 minutes.
3. Forcing every Jew to hand over his ID card for a background check
4. Giving priority for entry to all non-Jewish tourists and secular Israeli’s.
In the end only half of the Jews who arrived this Jerusalem Day succeeded in entering the Temple Mount on the very day it was liberated from foreign rule after 2,000 years of hopes and prayers. I myself arrived at the Temple Mount gate at 7:30am and almost made it through the security check point when the clock struck 11am the time when the Israeli Police close the Temple Mount to all non-Muslims. I was actually half way through the meddle detector when I was informed the Mount was closed. After waiting for nearly 4 hours, I was ejected with one foot in the door.
Please watch the following video and feel free to share it on social media; it is time for the discrimination to end and for everyone to stand up and be counted.
