Rightist groups seek Jewish sovereignty over Aqsa mosque

April 29, 2014 12:44 A.M. (Updated: April 30, 2014 10:14 A.M.)
JERUSALEM (Ma’an) – Right-wing Jewish organizations distributed a leaflet across Jerusalem Monday urging Jews to join an emergency conference to discuss means to secure a Jewish presence inside the al-Aqsa compound.

The conference, according to the leaflet, will be held Tuesday at the Menachem Begin Heritage Center in Jerusalem to address how to guarantee a Jewish presence inside the holy place and to force Israeli police to open all gates to Jews and allow them to perform Jewish rites freely.

The leaflet reads that workshops and panels will be held to listen to suggestions on how to impose “complete Jewish sovereignty on the Temple Mount.” The leaflet claims that Jews, when they enter the compound, are being humiliated, detained, harassed and subjected to physical harm.

Panelists in the conference include rabbis, Israeli ministers and Knesset members such as Moshe Feiglin, Orit Strook and Moti Yogev of the Jewish Home party as well as Miri Regev of Likud and Shlomi Moallem, according to the pamphlet.

It adds that the “Temple Mount is open to Jews from 7:30 to 11:00 a.m. and from 1:30 to 2:30 p.m.”
