The candidate elected to the
14th place on the Likud list for the Knesset, Moshe Feiglin, is attempting
to broadcast moderate, not provocative messages, as he had done in the past.
He has been doing this for quite a few months. But he has not given up on
his belief that his destiny is to build the Beit Hamikdash on the Temple
Roy Sharon, good evening.
Good evening Guy. Prayer on the Temple Mount is a very unusual event. The
political echelon, as well as the police and of course the wakf have
been attempting for years to prevent prayer on the Temple Mount. They
attempt to prevent any Jewish worship on the Temple Mount. The traditional
threat is that prayer on the Temple Mount will anger the Moslems and riots
may break out. This morning, future MK Moshe Feiglin, with no tricks and
making no attempt to hide, prays on the Temple Mount. Let us first look at
the film clip:
A month ago, Guy, he was arrested on the Temple Mount and taken to the
police station. But he refused to sign a guarantee that he would not pray on
the Temple Mount. This morning we can say that he tested the police and
apparently, he triumphed. He prays openly and nobody prevents him from doing
so. By the way, no Moslem starts to riot. There is not really any law that
prohibits prayer there. There is barely a government decision from 1967.
However, every Jew who ascends the Temple Mount is warned that he is
forbidden to pray and there is also the status quo, which has been preserved
for years. Future MK Moshe Feiglin has never hidden his intentions and his
plans to build the Beit Hamikdash in the future. The question is if this is
a declaration of his future intentions. In another two months he will have
the immunity of a Knesset Member in his pocket and then we will see how he
will conduct himself on the Temple Mount.
