Har Habayis Closed to All!

hhaFollowing the Wednesday night attempted assassination of Har Habayis activist Rabbi Yehuda Glick, Jerusalem Police have announced Har Habayis is closed to all, Muslims and non-Muslims alike.

Arab media sources however have published photos of worshippers praying on Har Habayis so it is not certain if police have truly closed down the site to everyone or possibly, permitting some Islamic worshipers onto the holy site.

Israel Police spokesman Micky Rosenfeld this morning released a Twitter message confirming Har Habayis is “closed today to prevent disturbances”.

The tzibur is requested to be mispallel for Yehuda Yehoshua ben Rivka Ita Brenda bsoch kol cholei am yisrael.

Photo below was released by the Arab media to show there are worshipers in the mosque this morning.

  1. wow!someone at least has 1/2 a brain to close off the mount to arabs when they riot and kill.
    As punishment they should only allow non-muslims on the mount

  2. Sure. That’ll teach them. Just like all our past “offensives” and “aggressions” have done. Our Holy Land cannot be taken by force. Period. It has never worked. It can never work.

  3. Many of us remember a time not too long ago when Jews weren’t allowed to go to the Kosel. It’s now our home again, B”H. To all of the arabs, you’re in OUR home so you need to play by Our rules.

  4. 1. “Har Habayis closed to all”—JEWS! Arabs were never shut out.
    2. Har Habayis was given to Jordan, shortly after we sacrificed lives to recapture Yerushalayim. Israel cannot close Har Habayis because we have no control over it. This is the crux of the problem.
    3. by denying access to all Jewish worshippers, the goal of the terrorist arab murderers was achieved.

  5. Hey, we know that Clall Yisrael should nto be on Har Habayis right now. We are nowhere near the state of Taharah necessary for that. Now, the Har Habayis will no longer be defiled by an am zaar. So, I believe this ban is a good thing.
