Ted Belman. Moshe Dayan gave the keys to the Temple Mount to the Wakf without receiving anything in return. So legally, Israel is not bound by that decision and can change the locks, so to speak. It is unconscionable that Jews are not permitted to pray there. We are not asking to pray in the mosque itself or even in the perimeter surrounding it but the temple mount was built by Jews some 600 years before it was conquered by Muslims. And the Jews have come back to claim what is theirs.
As is their wont, they obliterate the presence of any other religion on territory conquered by them. Now that Israel has conquered it back she should wipe out their presence just as they do to others. But Israel doesn’t do that. Jews are too liberal. But maybe they could learn from the Muslims. By giving respect to the Muslims, she is sowing the seeds of her own destruction. That’s why Sherman and Feiglin, and Kahane before them, want them removed from Israel. By allowing them to dictate to us, we are accepting dhimmi status in our own lands.
If Israel does not do something about freedom of prayer on the Mount, its survival is at stake.

Arab spokesmen, unlike their Israeli counterparts, are not ashamed to be “intransigent” or to cherish territory.
Arab spokesmen, unlike most of their Jewish counterparts, are not ashamed to make the Temple Mount the center of their new war against Israel.
Arab spokesmen care so much about the site that they can claim that Abraham wasn’t a Jew, that Jews never had a Temple in Jerusalem, that Jews in Biblical Israel are “the descendants of monkeys and pigs”.
Arab spokesmen were so skillful and able to manipulate history that today the UN, Europe, America and the chattering classes, which have no religion at all, are all reinforcing the Arab claim that any who died on the Temple Mount were martyred defenders of holy places, mowed down by savage, unprovoked “Israeli settlers”.
