Police, today (Thursday), halted Jews seeking to go up the Temple Mount in resonse to Arab threats to riot. The Temple Institute claims that they are giving in to the Arabs, who are trying to stop Jews from planting flags at the site.
Yehuda Glick, who arrived at the Temple Mount today with a group of students, responded harshly to the police action. "Closing the Mount to Jews, but leaving it open for the Muslims has the police complicit in terrorist goals. They are surrendering to the terrorists rather than trying to vanquish them," he said. The planting of flags was schedule today in reponse to the humiliating searches Jews were submitted to last week by the police.
