Arieh King: No Jew Should Fear Visiting Temple Mount


Arieh King, who heads the list for the upcoming Jerusalem mayoral elections, responded to the Arab riots that were taking place this morning on the Temple Mount.

“It is inconceivable that the Israeli police should try to prevent Jews, on the Eve of Rosh Hashana, from praying on the Temple Mount.  It is incumbent upon them to fight the Arab rioters, and show them that their incitement and provocation will not work to disrupt our rights and traditions,” King stated authoritatively.

“In the next Municipal Council, we will ensure that Jews will no longer feel the need to cringe in fear to visit and pray the Jewish People’s holiest site,” he asserted.
