Postscript to the Feiglin/Temple Mount Episode


Fearing riots, police closed the compound to Jewish visitors. "The visit by Feiglin sympathizers to the Temple Mount is nothing new and takes place once a month," a senior police official explained. "What is different this time is the distribution of ads in the media calling for the site to be 'cleansed of Israel's enemies.'"

How the other side pumps it:

Israeli Right Provokes Confrontation in Jerusalem

Forget about Shai Nitzan ordering Arab inciters to be arrested.

Moshe Feiglin, Yisrael Medad and others who believe Jews have the right to pray peacefully on Har Habayit will have to do penance for the Arabs.

After all, Israel's dhimmi Police Chief wants quiet and arrested Jews - unlike Arabs, won't protest and create an international incident.

Seen in that light, the Israeli government's decision to submit Arab threats and blackmail isn't entirely craven.
