Proposal to Manage Temple Mount for Both Jews and Arabs


A detailed proposal formulated by the Jewish Leadership Movement on the management of the Temple Mount for both Jews and Arabs is being submitted to the Knesset Internal Affairs and Environment Committee.

Michael Fuah, director of the Research Department of Jewish Leadership discussed the proposal with Arutz Sheva. Fuah noted that their acknowledgment that it was the responsibility of the Minister of Religious Affairs to deal with issues of the holy sites, but that even on our holiest day of the year, this site is not even officially recognized as being holy (to us).
