MK Yehuda Glick (Likud) submitted a petition to the Supreme Court today (Monday) to allow MKs to ascend the Temple Mount over the Succot holiday.

MK Glick asked the court to order Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu not to prevent MKs from visiting the holiest site in Judaism during Succot and Simchat Torah.

In his request, Glick stated that, "There is no dispute that all the relevant security forces are prepared to allow MKs onto the Temple Mount at this time."

"In a personal meeting with the prime minister over a month ago, he promised me personally that with the success of the pilot, the Mount would be open to MKs.

"I felt cheated and hurt, after it turned out that the 'pilot' was just 'throwing us a bone,' as if the MKs were dogs. To prevent MKs from performing the pilgrimage on Succot is an illegal order which contradicts the recommendations of the security forces," he said.
