Jews must be able to pray on the Temple Mount whenever they want, Housing and Construction Minister Uri Ariel said on a visit to the holy site Wednesday morning.

Ariel ascended the Mount on the eve of Rosh Hashanna, and expressed hope that one day Jewish worshipers would be able to do the same on the holiday.

The Bayit Yehudi minister added that he "plans to continue to go up [to the Mount] and strengthen the State of Israel's sovereignty in the site."

"The Temple Mount is ours, and it cannot be argued about or negotiated," Ariel emphasized.

Earlier this year, Ariel launched virtual, online tours of the Temple Mount on Tisha Be'av, the day that, according to tradition, the Messiah will return and the Holy Temple will be rebuilt in Jerusalem.

"[Secular people] aren't taught, so they don't know anything about the destruction of the Temple. They think the Temple Mount is a place where rocks are thrown and right wing people make provocations," Ariel quipped.
