Religious Freedom in Israel, Bad News for The Jews

Israel is offering the Vatican, Catholics, more prayer rights in Mount Zion , but at the same time Jews are forbidden from praying in our holiest spot, Har HaBayit, the Temple Mount.

Contrary to PC (politically correct) myth, the kotel, Western Wall is not Judaism's holiest site.  It's holiness is only because it's connected to the Temple Mount.  It's the remains of an outer wall of the Temple Compound.

Israel makes every effort to accommodate religious demands from Muslims, Catholics, Protestants and Mormons, but when it comes to Jewish Rights that's another very different story.

Jewish religious and civil rights should be primary.  This is the State of Israel in the Land of the Bible, our Jewish Bible.  We don't have to sacrifice our rights for others!

So my suggestion go in as one of the aforementioned religions. I'd take off my tzitzit and kippah(wear a ball cap) if it granted me acess and blend in and pray in Hebrew not making myself so conspicuous. Go to a mikvah prior to going to the place and memorize a tehillim or something that wouldn't be so obvious. We need to use strategy here. Just a thought. The last time stood next to that dome(outhouse) was in 1995 and I refused to go in while 30 Jews paid a shekel to enter in. I'll never forget how everybody looked at me but I stood my ground. Why pay them a shekel where they would invest it in killing us ...

jdl, Maybe since you're from chu"l you could pass, but Israeli Jews rarely succeed. Yes, they do try it.
I'm glad you didn't pay to get into the Muslim building!
