Detained for Praying on Temple Mount
Likud activist Moshe Feiglin was detained on the Temple Mount
on Tuesday morning after police accused him of praying on the Temple Mount.
Police detained Feiglin and removed him from the site but did not close the
area to other visitors.
Praying out loud or using any type of traditional prayer objects such as
tefillin, tallit, or prayerbooks is forbidden for Jews at Judaism's holiest
site due to tensions with Muslims worshipers at the Al Aqsa Mosque.
Feiglin ascends to the Temple Mount on the 19th of every Hebrew month. This
month the 19th falls on a Friday, the Muslim day of prayer, when the Temple
Mount is closed to non-Muslim visitors. Feiglin went up to the Temple Mount
on Tuesday with a number of additional supporters, as is his usual custom.
