MK Eldad Joins Rally for Temple Mount Preservation


MK Aryeh Eldad of Otzma Leyisrael joined protesters in Jerusalem on Wednesday for a rally calling on the government to stop the Muslim Waqf's destruction of ancient artifacts on the Temple Mount.
 
The Waqf is "systematically" destroying historical finds "that can never be repaired and studied," Eldad warned. Its goal is to destroy proof of Jewish ties to the holy site, he said.
 
"Netanyahu, who knows how to give lofty speeches about 'the cornerstone of our existence,' is sitting on his hands," Eldad accused.
