Moshe Feiglin: Government Must Stop Using Police as Security Fig Leaf
The closure of the Temple Mount to Jews today was not due to security considerations. The Mount was closed to Jews at the behest of the king of Jordan. Apparently, he does not like the fact that a relatively large number ofJews has visited the Temple Mount over the holiday. I demand of the government to stop using the police as a security fig leaf to conceal the fact that it is surrendering Israeli sovereignty on the Temple Mount to Jordan, despite the Jerusalem Basic Law that prohibits this.
