Is the Flag of Israel Dangerous?

reposted from Israel Hayom
February 14, 2014

by Emily Amrousi

Jews entering the Temple Mount are used to draconian treatment -- separate lines from tourists, meticulous security checks, vociferous orders not to pray or whisper, the chaperone. Now there is a new order: Every Jewish man and women are required to enter a side room and take off their clothes to prove they are not smuggling a dangerous, explosive prohibited substance: The Israeli flag. It should be noted that Muslims wave the flags of the Palestinian Liberation Organization and Hamas regularly, in front of cameras and policemen.

In the 1950s bold young men and women tried to reach Petra. Today they try to sneak an Israeli flag into Temple Mount. One of them, Eitan Kliman, got a restraining order banning him from the Temple Mount for concealing "under his shirt an Israeli flag that read 'Temple Mount is in out hands' which he planned to wave [on the site]." It is safe to say that they would probably have banned Mordechai Gur (the Israel Defense Force's 10th chief of staff) from the Temple Mount.
