Dichter: Open the Temple Mount to Jews

Chairman Avi Dichter of the Knesset Foreign Affairs and Defense Committee said on Sunday that after Friday's deadly terror attack, the Temple Mount should be opened for Jews.

The former head of the Shabak Israel Security Agency said, "It is inconceivable that as a result of the attack, Muslims will be able to enter and Jews will not." He said the Waqf Muslim Authority "is intended to deal with the mosques and the Israeli police on the entire mount. This is not a matter for discussion with anyone but a legal determination by the competent authorities in Israel. The political echelon must make this clear and the security bodies must enforce it."
