I find it immoral and illogical and totally discriminatory that we Jews are forbidden by the Israeli police to pray to Gd in the holiest place on earth, the Temple Mount, Har HaBayit!
Also Arabs and others who shout out hateful violent antisemitic threats and curses and lies to Jews aren't arrested, while Jews who may possibly be involved with anti-Arab acts and philosophy are held without civil legal rights. Yes, I'm not exaggerating.
MK Zahalka to Jewish worshipers on Temple mount: “Get out of here, go home!”

Yesterday when leaving the Kotel area, I noticed a group approaching with a Palestinian flag, but I couldn't catch a photo of it. Obviously it was a provocation, and I wonder if it was connected to Zahalka's group. I haven't seen any report of it. If you have, please add to the comments here, thanks.MK Jamal Zahalka of the Joint List arrived in Jerusalem this morning (Tuesday), to participate in the Arab protest against the right of Jews to enter the Temple Mount. Zahalka approached the Jewish worshippers and the policemen at the site and shouted at them: “Get out of here! Go home! You have no place here! You are not wanted here!”
One nice thing I heard while saying my prayers at the Kotel was joyous Jewish song about ascending Har Habayit. It came from the upper passage as seen in the picture above. Apparently, a group of Jews was taking advantage of their approach to the Temple Mount for prayers they are forbidden once there. The women and children near me were all looking up from where the songs were sung with joyful admiring expressions. It somehow reminded me of the old Superman television show when people would stop, stare and point:
"These are our SUPERJEWS!"Man 1: Look! Up in the sky! It’s a bird.
Woman: It’s a plane
Man 2: It’s Superman!
That was what went through my mind as I heard their joyous prayer-filled song. The more Jews who ascend the Temple Mount the closer and sooner we will get to having full religious rights and then full national rights on the holiest place in the world for Jews!!
