Flying under the radar on the Temple Mount - by Hillel Fendel and Chaim Silberstein

The battle for Jerusalem and its holy sites thus continues with full force, even if under the radar of most news outlets and consumers. As history marches on before our eyes, let us not stand passively by.

It was the driest of headlines, betraying nothing of the dramatic and even historic significance of the events it heralded. “Police forces operating on the Temple Mount,” read the ticker late Saturday night. The news brief below it gave just a tiny bit more detail, adding that the police were moving Muslim worshippers out of the Temple Mount area.

What was really going on?

A representative of the Temple Mount Movement’s Joint Task Force was able to provide the full story.

Generally, Muslim worshippers on the Temple Mount—our holiest site, the Holy of Holies of the two ancient Temples—pack up around sunset and go home for the night. But that’s not what happened this time. Hundreds of Muslims, led by a band of stocking-masked men, decided to hole up in the holy compound. Planning to riot and throw firebombs the next morning, they would thus prevent the normal opening of the Mount and deter tourists and Jewish visitors.

This, of course, is the ultimate goal of these terrorists: to detach the Jewish people from the source of their national strength and history. Funded and led by radical Islamist elements, they have attacked tourists on various occasions, as well as the police, with rocks, fireworks, iron rods and even firebombs.

Not that this past Saturday night was the only time they ever tried this trick.
