Jewish rights on the Temple Mount?


Jewish rights on the Temple Mount?

Even after 10,000 Jews rallied for Jewish rights on the Temple Mount last year, Jewish religious rights are still denied.
  • Only Jews must wait in a special security line before entering the Mount
  • Only Jews must show their ID’s before entering the Mount
  • Only Jews are subject to special “ritual item searches” before entering the Mount
  • Only Jews are divided into groups when ascending the Mount and are forbidden from walking on the Mount alone
  • Only Jews are followed and filmed by both Israeli police and representatives of the Muslim religious authority (aka. WAKF) during their entire stay on the Mount
  • Only Jews are arrested for crimes, including the following: praying; learning Torah; holding religious books; wearing tallit or tefilin closing eyes, swaying; bowing; singing; dancing, ripping ones shirt in mourning for the Temple or picking up dirt to be placed of the forehead of a groom
  • Only Jews are prevented from ascending the Mount more than once a day
