Muslim groups upset as Likud MKs plan protest trip to the Temple Mount.

by Maayana Miskin

Islamic groups have begun an internet campaign opposing Likud membersí plans to visit the Temple Mount, Temple Mount organizations report.

Likud members are planning a joint visit to the holy site in protest of the fact that their fellow Likud MK, Moshe Feiglin, has been barred from visiting.

Organizer David Tzviel spoke to Arutz Sheva about the planned protest visit. Feiglin's ban is not only a personal matter, he explained, but demonstrates that the Israeli government sees the Muslim Waqf as the sole ruling power on the Temple Mount Ė a situation that he believes must change.

An invitation sent by organizers to Likud members read, "46 years after the liberation of Jerusalem, 46 years since the historic shofar blast that made thousands of hearts tremble, and the emotional cry, 'The Temple Mount is in our hands!' the Likud-Beytenu movement has decided to end the shameful neglect of Israeli sovereignty on the Temple Mount, the holiest place on earth to the Jewish people!"

Islamic groups have called on supporters to spend all day Tuesday on the Temple Mount in order to prevent the Likud group for touring the area.

In light of recent tension as Muslims try to prevent Jews from visiting the holy site, Temple Mount groups are throwing their weight behind a proposal to avoid tension by splitting visiting hours at the site. The proposal would see certain times and places set aside for Jewish prayer, while other times are set aside exclusively for Muslim prayer.
