Marking the first day of the Hebrew month of Iyar and continuing what has become a tradition, MKs Yehuda Glick (Likud) and Shuli Mualem (Jewish Home), together with bereaved families, ascended Temple Mount today.

MK Glick said: "Today, we're ascending Temple Mount with families who have gone through the pain of terror. And the idea is to understand on the one hand the proportions of life, and on the other hand the connection of the Jewish People to the Temple Mount.

"When we send condolence to a family who are mourning, we always say that Jerusalem will fill your heart with condolences. And we come to G-d and we say 'Nachamu, nachamu ami'; To the Nation: take condolences - from where? From Jerusalem. And today, the families who are here to get the condolences by connecting to the Divine Presence of G-d, and many, many more Jews are coming to the Temple Mount, and many, many more people from all around the world, Jews and non-Jews who are worshipping G-d are coming to the place that G-d chose to rest His Divine Presence.

"And from here, the light of the universe shall add so much light to the world, and we should see the love between the People of Israel and the love between mankind and G-d should only strengthen and strengthen from today on, through the connection for independence of Israel, and the State of Israel, the People of Israel, and the connection to Jerusalem and to the Temple Mount."

Rina Ariel, mother of 13-year-old Hallel Yaffe who was murdered in her Kiryat Arba bedroom in June 2016, said: "Today's the first day of the month Iyar. What we do for the last two years is we every month go up to Har HaBayit in memory of Hallel. This month, because it's a special month, part of the Israeli Memorial Day and part of the Independence Day, we felt we have to do something different, and we asked all the people who lost somebody in the war, or injured, or anything who are willing and able to come with us and to say that part of independence is not only have a free physical state, but we believe we have to continue after seventy years and free the holiest place of the Jewish People, and that's the mountain over here, and build the Jewish Temple."

Ariel, together with dozens of bereaved families have announced formation of a new organization to increase deterrence against would-be terrorists and fight against “lavish conditions” received by terrorists in Israeli prisons.
