MK Miri Regev responded to threats from the UAL regarding the ascent of Jews to the Temple Mount.
“In light of Abbas’ rude, abusive and defiant statement, it was fitting that Bennett should make it clear to Abbas that today, the day the Jewish people mourn the destruction of the Temple, not only will Jews ascend the Temple Mount, but it is time for Jews to pray on the Temple Mount.”
“Freedom of worship is a basic right for every citizen, every person has the right to come and pray in his chosen holy place. Only in the State of Israel, Jews are discriminated against and can not pray on the Temple Mount. This status quo must be changed,” Regev said.
