Moshe Feiglin: Knesset Must Affirm Israeli Sovereignty on Temple Mount in Important Tuesday Session
The more we lose our sovereignty on the Temple Mount, the more the world turns against us. When we safeguard our rights, the world respects that. After the 6 Day War in 1967, Moshe Dayan and the State of Israel gave religious sovereignty on the Temple Mount to the Moslems, out of respect for their religious beliefs. But they did not mean to give the Jordanians actual sovereignty. Israel’s respectful approach was taken advantage of by the Arabs and today no sign of Israeli sovereignty is allowed on the Temple Mount. We want Israeli sovereignty on the Temple Mount to be affirmed in a clear statement by the Knesset this Tuesday. Every MK who said “If I forget thee o’ Jerusalem, may my right hand lose its cunning” under his or her chuppah must make it his/her business to be at this all-important deliberation.
