Dr. Gabi Barkay: Hamas-Promoted Riots "Reign" on Temple Mount

reposted from Israel National News
9/6/2014, Elul 11, 5774

Dr. Gabriel Barkay, winner of the 1996 Jerusalem Prize for his life's work in Jerusalem archaeology and current lecturer at Bar Ilan University, has told Arutz Sheva that he believes that Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu's order to terminate work on the new bridge to the Mughrabi Gate which leads from the Western Wall to the Temple Mount, was so ordered due to intimidation by the Hamas-promoted Arab riots that continue to plague the area.

"The Mughrabi Gate, in essence, is the sole entrance to the Temple Mount for Israelis and tourists from the Western Wall. And since 2004, when it was closed due to the collapse of the embankment from the heavy winter rains, there has only been a temporary wooden structure in place," he explained. "All attempts to rebuild have been stymied by fear of Arabviolence, which has upset the overall status quo, and we have been left with the temporary structure," he added.

"And now, we see not only the Jordanians fighting to maintain sovereignty over "al Aqsa", but that Hamas has entered the equation, fomenting violenceon non-Muslim visitors," he said.
