“Palestinian terrorists” are responsible for the violent riots on the Temple Mount during the last weeks, Israel’s Ambassador to the UN Gilad Erdan told the United Nations Security Council in New York on Monday. Those who blame both sides for the violence have created a false equivalency, he warned. “The only ones – the only ones – breaking the status quo on the Temple Mount are the Palestinian terror groups inflaming the holy sites,” Erdan said.

His words echoed those of other Israelis, including Foreign Minister Yair Lapid, who also insisted that Israel was upholding the status quo on the Temple Mount, in which Jews and Christians can visit but cannot pray. Palestinian Authority Ambassador Riyad Mansour, who spoke before Erdan, said that, “Clearly, Israeli officials are the only ones to believe [Israel’s] actions are anything but a flagrant violation of the historic status quo."
