Temple Mount Cops Detain Jewish Victim of Muslim Harassment

Rabbi Yehuda Glick was detained after videotaping a Muslim who uttered obscenities at him.

Police detained Temple Mount activist Rabbi Yehuda Glick on the Temple Mount Monday, after Glick videotaped a Muslim man who hurled obscene curses at him.

After Glick took photographs on the Mount and shared them on the internet, police confiscated his cellular phone and detained him. Only when he agreed to stop sharing photos did police give back his phone.

Glick's regular peaceful visits to the Temple Mount are often met with harassment, but police concerns over offending Muslim sensitivities on Judaism's holiest site - which is also the site of the Al Aqsa Islamic complex - have often led to Glick being detained to "diffuse" the situation, instead of his attackers.

Several months ago, police issued an order distancing Glick from the Temple Mount, Judaism's holiest site. Only after a hunger strike by Glick and pressure from the political echelon did police rescind the order.

For the second day running, and for the fourth time in a week, police had to deal Monday with Muslim rioting on the Temple Mount.

The Temple Organizations' HQ calls for separation of Jews and Muslim on the Temple Mount and asks that the Mount be opened exclusively to Jews on Jewish holidays, just as police close off the Mount to Jews on Muslim holidays, and as they do in the Cave of Machpela.

Police said Glick was detained after he “caused a provocation.”

Despite being the holiest site in Judaism, Jewish access to the Temple Mount is very limited - including a blanket ban on Jewish worship there - in what activists condemn as a capitulation to Muslim extremism.
