Skip to comments.Feiglin to question legal authority, legitimacy of Temple Mount Waqf

The Knesset Interior Committee scheduled a hearing for Monday regarding preparations for Jewish visitation to the Temple Mount over Succot.
Groups lobbying for Jewish prayer rights at the site criticized the lack of access afforded to them over Rosh Hashana and are demanding that Jewish visits over Succot be enabled by police.
In general, access for Jews and other non-Muslims is strictly controlled, and police prohibit any non-Muslim prayer at the site as well as any outward demonstrations of religious worship, in accordance with the demands of the Jordanian Islamic trust, or Wakf, which administers the area.
MK and Deputy Knesset Speaker Moshe Feiglin, a longtime Temple Mount prayer rights advocate, is insisting that, in light of the problems encountered over Rosh Hashana, police must prepare adequately for Jewish access over Succot.
The MK highlighted specifically the closure of the Temple Mount to Jews and non-Muslims over the last two weeks of Ramadan. In light of this policy, exclusive Jewish access should be provided by police during Succot, he argued.
Feiglin also intends to publicly question the legality of the Wakf and its authority to administer the Temple Mount.

Har HaBait should be under Israeli control and open to everybody, in fulfillment of Isaiah 56:7, "My house shall be called a house of prayer for all nations"
It’s about time!
Why? If I was an Israeli, I'd be doing everything to tweak the mooselimbs noses. Every time they fired rockets into Israel, declare an open holy day on the Temple Mount for Jews. Maybe the mooselimbs would eventually get the idea.....
Everyday should be an open day on the Temple Mount for Jews, Christians and anybody who wants to worship the One True God!
This is a fascinating time in history for anyone who reads the Bible.
Amen to that! Jesus is coming back soon!
You can tell that the secular Jews don’t want anything to do with the Temple Mount. When it fell to their military during war, they quickly gave control to the Muslims. Shameful. But no secular force will prevail. The Temple Mount will soon have some form of Temple once again. The implications will shake all humanity.
Too right! It is absolutely ridiculous that Jews have very limited access to the Waqf-controlled Machpela building, Temple Mount, etc. I mean, whose country is it anyway? And the Mooslimes are busy vandalizing the Temple Mount Jewish artifacts and destroying the site.
