Israel Only ‘Free Country’ in Mideast, Turkey No Longer ‘Free’: Report

Muslims screaming “Allahu akbar” protest metal detectors as Israel reopens Temple Mount


Why are they so angry about security checks? One cannot help but conclude that they mean to bring weapons to the Temple Mount. Israel is interfering with their jihad against…Israel. Watch for the world to see what is happening and condemn…Israel.

“Worshipers protest metal detectors as Israel reopens Temple Mount,” by Judah Ari Gross, Times of Israel, July 16, 2017 (thanks to Mark):

Israel partially reopened the Temple Mount complex on Sunday after a brutal terror attack two days earlier, allowing in only Jerusalem’s Muslim residents. A comparatively small number of worshipers actually entered the site, while others stayed outside in protest of new metal detectors set up at the entrances.

According to police, approximately 200 Muslims entered the Temple Mount as of 1:00 p.m., an hour after it opened on Sunday, a far cry from the thousands that were expected to visit the site. By 5 p.m., the number was up to 600.

The holy site had been closed since Friday, when three Arab Israeli terrorists opened fire at a group of police officers, killing two of them, using guns that had apparently been stashed earlier on the Temple Mount.

The closure was the first time Israel had shuttered the compound on a Friday, Islam’s holy day, in nearly 50 years.

At noon on Sunday, Israel reopened one of the entrances to the Mount to all Muslim residents of Jerusalem, regardless of age or gender. However, metal detectors were installed at the gate, which Israel had set up in the past but later removed, in order to improve security.

Waqf officials, who oversee the religious management of the Temple Mount, refused to enter the site and instigated a protest outside the entrance, with dozens of worshipers conducting their afternoon prayers next to the gate. “We will not accept security checks at Al-Aqsa… Don’t go through the gates,” one official shouted to the crowd outside the gate, who responded with cries of “Allahu Akbar.”

Police said the the Waqf officials were not required to pass through the sensors. Channel 2 reported that Waqf officials initially entered the compound by a side entrance, without being required to go through the metal detectors, but later came back out and instigated protests against the new arrangements.

No non-Muslim visitors were allowed to enter the site on Sunday.

Israeli officials noted that all entrants to the Western Wall Plaza and Western Wall, beneath the Temple Mount compound, have for many years been required to go through metal detectors.

Public Security Minister Gilad Erdan, who is responsible for police, said in a tweet that the Waqf officials’ protest was “opposition to the very existence of the metal detectors.”

The decision to install the detectors came Saturday night from the Prime Minister’s Office Saturday night, which is seeking more effective security arrangements at the compound. Officials had previously refrained from using them out of fear of protests from Jordan, which opposes any change to the delicate status quo at the site.

Mahmoud al-Aloul, deputy head of Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas’s Fatah faction, told Palestinian media on Sunday that posting metal detectors at the Temple Mount was “illegitimate,” and security would only be ensured at the site by preventing the entry of “settlers” and removing “Israeli soldiers” — a reference to Border Police officers stationed at the site — from the compound.

The Palestinian Authority’s official Wafa news outlet also reported on Sunday that Israel had banned several Waqf officials from going up to the Temple Mount. This could not be immediately confirmed by Israeli officials.

Over the weekend, multiple Waqf officials were arrested — mostly for inciting speech against Israel’s decision to close the Temple Mount — but were released after interrogation.

On Sunday morning, Israeli forces conducted a security sweep and began installing the detectors. Given the large number of worshipers expected to enter the site, the new measures could slow movement and spark tensions.

Erdan said in an interview with Army Radio Sunday morning: “Right now, we can only screen [for firearms] at some of the gates, even if it’s only with a hand-held [detector], but we hope to place metal detection gates at all the entrances to the Mount and reach a point where everyone who enters gets checked,” he said.

After a Saturday night consultation with security officials, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu ordered a gradual reopening of the site to Muslim worshipers starting Sunday at noon.

The closure, which drew furious complaints from the Jordanian-appointed Waqf Muslim trust that administers the compound, was the first time the site was closed since 1969. Jordan, a custodian of the sacred compound, called for its immediate reopening. Netanyahu acted quickly to allay Muslim fears, saying that the status quo at the Muslim-administered site “will be preserved.” But Gaza’s Hamas rulers called the act a “religious war” and urged Palestinians to carry out more attacks.

The reopening, Erdan said, will be accompanied by heightened security measures, a response to the fact that the shooters had managed to smuggle their guns into the compound before the attack.

Only the Mughrabi Gate entrance, used by Jews and foreign visitors, had a metal detector before Sunday, Erdan said.

According to the daily Israel Hayom, Israel has not had metal detectors at all nine gates into the Temple Mount since 2000, when they were removed at Jordan’s insistence. A police plan in 2014 called for them to be reinstated, but they were only placed at some gates, given the issue’s sensitivity.

Netanyahu’s office announced the lifting of the closure late Saturday, saying in a statement, “It was decided to gradually reopen the site tomorrow to worshipers, visitors and tourists.”

The statement added that sensors and detectors would be set up at all gates leading into the site, along with “further additional security measures.” Cameras would be set up outside the gates, the statement added.

Erdan said no decision had yet been taken to add security cameras inside the compound, a proposal opposed in the past by Jordan….

  • Trump can’t ban islam

    this is against freedom of religion and human rights of muslims. disgusting, horrible with undertones of the islamophobic spain of the XVI century. It’s against everything europe and USA stand for. europe and USA fought during centuries to defeat the spanish empire, so now muslims are free to bring islam wherever they want

    • Mariaca

      Frankly, the world could use a large helping of Islamophobic Spain of the XVI century.A ‘religion’ that wants to kill or subjugate everyone not of that ‘religion’ is not healthy for free humans.
