It is astonishing that the reporter is unaware of the fact that thousands of Israeli Jews, (and non-Israeli Jews) either went up to the Temple Mount over the three week holiday season that has just concluded, or were denied entry by the police for alleged security reasons. These Israeli Jews go up out of a longing for the Holy Temple and to fulfill the commandments to be seen in the place of the Holy Temple and to show reverence for God in the place of the Holy Temple, (Mora Mikdash). They seek to pray while on the Temple Mount, but this basic right, guaranteed in Israeli law, is currently denied to all non-Muslims. I encourage Moshe Gilad to become more familiar with what is really happening on the Temple Mount.
