Barkat Slams Porush for Temple Mount Remarks

reprinted from Arutz 7
17 Tishrei 5769, 16 October 08 09:14

Jerusalem mayoral frontrunner Nir Barkat added his voice on Thursday to those criticizing hareidi-religious candidate Meir Porush for remarks made earlier in the week that religious control of the Temple Mount in Jerusalem belongs in Arab hands. Porush said political and sovereign control of the mount should remain in Jewish hands.

Barkat was quoted by Nana/Channel 10 Television as saying, "Who could believe that, of all times, on these days of the three pilgrimage festivals, when thousands of Jews are coming up, Porush chose to make this suprising, extreme statement. Since the declaration 'The Temple Mount is in our hands!' no Israeli public figure has said such a thing." He added, "Sovereignty on the Temple Mount, the holiest place for the Jewish people, has to be Jewish, with no connection to differences of opinion on if it's allowed [under Jewish law for Jews] to up to the mount."
