Supreme Court Rejects Temple Faithful Suit


The Supreme Court rejected Tuesday a lawsuit filed by the Temple Mount Faithful movement against what the movement termed desecration of the Foundation Stone.  Justices Salim Joubran, Yoram Danziger and Tzvi Zilberstein said the plaintiffs had not gone through the proper channels. “It seems that the suit is not sufficiently urgent to justify not exhausting other means,” they wrote.

The plaintiffs argued that the Muslim Waqf is allowing damage to the Foundation Stone, and called to bring those responsible to trial for “desecration.”
