Police set to let far-right MK Ben Gvir visit Temple Mt. before Sunday’s Flag March
Final decision to be made Sunday morning; in contrast, potential visit by Arab lawmakers to Damascus Gate will reportedly be seen as ‘provocation,’ MKs may be removed by force

Police are expected to allow far-right MK Itamar Ben Gvir to visit the Temple Mount on Sunday amid soaring tensions around the contentious Jerusalem Day Flag March, which is set to take a route through the Old City’s Muslim Quarter later that day. Police believe that while Ben Gvir’s potential visit could lead to a significant escalation in the security situation, any consequent clashes could be contained and controlled, the Haaretz daily reported Friday.

The report said officials from other security bodies, such as the Shin Bet, were part of the security assessment meeting and also did not raise objections to Ben Gvir’s visit. A final decision on the matter is set to be made in the early hours of Sunday as part of a situational assessment led by Jerusalem District Police Commander Doron Turgeman. Earlier this week, Ben Gvir advised the Knesset, as is protocol, that he planned to visit the Temple Mount on Sunday.

Why is it still not ok for Jews to visit the Temple Mount, whatever their views, whatever the time of day or year?

I know Gvir is making a point, but it's a point that needs making.

This is a Jewish site that was taken over by the Muslims, and when the Jews gained control of it, they continued to allow the Muslims access to the mosques built ON JUDAISM'S HOLIEST SITE that PREDATES ISLAM by over a millennia.

Meanwhile it's fine for Arab Muslims to come and go anytime, stockpile rocks and other weapons in the mosques up there, put glass and needles on the pathways because they know the devout Jews go barefoot and throw rocks at the Jews who dare to visit their own site.

Just for historical reference Solomon's temple was built there in built in 957 BC

The Muslim invaders didn't arrive till 637 AD some 1594 years LATER, and they didn't build the Dome of the Rock till 685, another 48 years after that.

So The TEMPLE was and is the Holiest site in Judaism for almost 1000 years before Christ, and wasn't defaced by Islam until 637 AD some 1,642 years later.

It wasn't until the 30s and 40s that Yasser Arafats uncle, (the grand mufti of Jerusalem) started the idea that Mohammed went up to heaven on his horse from that spot, and he did that to make the Arab position on the Temple Mount more secure. Same reason Muslim invaders always built on religious sites of their conquests. To drive home their "ownership".

Meanwhile the Jews own the site, both historically and since 1967. But owning it and taking possession of it are two different things.
