Knesset to Discuss Sovereignty on Temple Mount


On Tuesday, the Knesset is scheduled to hold a discussion on Israeli sovereignty over the Temple Mount, Judaism's holiest site. Member of Knesset Moshe Feiglin (Likud-Beytenu) plans to screen a short film he made last week of his visit to the site in which he explains the historical and religious significance.

The Temple Mount was the home of the two Holy Temples, the second of which was destroyed by the Roman Empire in 70CE. It is currently under jurisdiction of the Muslim Waqf.
