Prime Minister Netanyahu has decided allow several days during which MKs will be permitted to ascend the Temple Mount, in order to assess the removal of the prohibition that currently prevents MKs from ascending to Judaism's holiest site as causing disruption of the public order.

The response of the state to MK Yehuda Glick's petition to the Supreme Court said that the prohibition will be suspended for 5 days, starting on July 23.

The decision comes within the context of the petition of MK Yehuda Glick (Likud) against the prohibition imposed by the Prime Minister barring MKs from ascending the Temple Mount.

Glick, a long-time activist for Jewish rights on the Temple Mount, was shot in the past by an Arab for encouraging Jews to ascend the mount.

Glick said this morning, Sunday, in response to the announcement, “This is a correct and fitting decision. It’s a pity we had to go to the Supreme Court.”

“I call on MKs to ascend the mount and honor the site in a fitting manner, and leave their disagreements and agendas outside the mount. We will continue to hope that the mount will [soon] serve it purpose and become a worldwide center of peace and reconciliation.”
