    What was heard in Israel in 1968 on establishing a Jewish presence on the Temple Mount? What efforts were undertaken by extremeists to carry out such p[lans? Very little indeed. Moshe Dayan and rabbinic authorities respected the Muslim authoirty over the site and the rabbis forbade entry due to concers of ritual purity. But with the asvcendency of the right wing and the toxic connexion between religion and nationjalism, the strident voices of fanaticism became louder and its defenders could be heard in the Knesset and from government ministers. The Temple Mount Faitful is supported by thousands and are sponsored by right wing ministers. There is indeed an attempt to take over or establish, bit by bit a Jewish presence on the TM and claim it exclusively as a Jewish site.This has been ongoing for over a decade and is not a lie. Netanyahu, once again, proves that he is the deceiver. Read the literature of the groups trying to carry out this takeover and how much bolder they are today.
