Just a day before I ran into a friend who told me of her rather uncomfortable visit to Har HaBayit, the Temple Mount where paid Arab women are stationed all over screaming in Arabic whenever Jews came near. She said that Arab youth played irreverently and Jews were restricted from praying. Any sign of moving lips which could be construed as prayers, and the Jew would be roughly hustled away from the Holiest Place on Earth. Yes, to make it clear, Har HaBayit, the Temple Mount, where both Batei Hamikdash, Holy Temples had been located is the Holiest Place of Earth for Jews. The Kotel which Jews tout as the "holiest" sic is no more than the outer wall and was more a parking lot where Biblical Jews left their animals, transportation of the time, when they went up to pray and give sacrifices.

Davka yesterday, while I was enjoying the Israeli flags waving freely and proudly on Ben-Yehuda Street, Jerusalem, Arab Muslim terrorists were attacking Jews and taking over Har HaBayit.
Arab rioters succeeded in violently shutting down the Temple Mount this Jerusalem Day to everyone except Muslims.
One police officer has been injured so far by a rock hurled by a rioter as security personnel battle Palestinian Authority Arabs on the Temple Mount in the first hours of the morning on Wednesday.
Masked Arab youths have been hurling stones and firebombs (Molotov cocktails) since the start of the morning, once again effectively preventing Jews and anyone other than Muslims from reaching the site. Their handy weapons are stored in piled caches in and around the Al Aqsa mosque, one of two Muslim houses of worship located on the Temple Mount. (Jewish Press)
Were they dispersed? Were they arrested? NO, but Jews were sent away. This makes a total farce out the Israel's victory in 1967.
We have a long way to go, baby...
