Moshe Feiglin: Surrender to Hamas on Temple Mt. Makes it Impossible to Win in Gaza
In testimony in court on Sunday, Jerusalem Police Commander Avi Bitton said the following: “Last night, tens of masked Moslems barricaded themselves into the El Aktza Mosque on the Temple Mount. While inside, they prepared rocks and fireworks. This morning at dawn, serious disturbances began on the Mount…”
And what did the police do? Did they prevent the Arabs from barricading themselves? Did they arrest them? Or close the Temple Mount to Moslems?
Of course not. At 8:30 in the morning the police closed the Temple Mount to tourists and Jews.
Until we control the heart of our capital, we cannot triumph – not in Gaza and not in any other place.
He who controls the Temple Mount controls the entire Land. He who abandons the Temple Mount abandons the entire Land.
This Tuesday, the 17th of Tamuz, I will ascend the Temple Mount at 8 a.m. with G-d’s help. (This is two days earlier than my usual 19th of the month –due to the fast on the 17th).
