Jewish activists arrived Tuesday afternoon at the Jerusalem Central Bus station and distributed fliers in Hebrew and Arabic: "Don't agree to humiliation! There are security checks? Stay out!"

The activists protested against the removal of the metal detectors from the entrances to the Temple Mount Tuesday.

Otzma Yehudit party head Baruch Marzel said at the event that: "the magnometers were removed a week after they were put in place only because of the pressure of terrorism and the threats of the Arabs. This is a security threat to every Jew in the Land of Israel."

"The Israeli government announced: We are weak, we are afraid, we are not capable of doing what is accepted everywhere in the world, at the airport, in Mecca, in Hevron, and everywhere there is heaven from magnometers," he added.

"The Israeli government cannot stand behind its word for even a week. The Arabs understand this message and we are all in danger [because of the government's decision]."
