Meretz MK Slams Labor Leader on Temple Mount Prayer

Member of Knesset Issawi Farij (Meretz) sharply attacked Secretary-General Hilik Bar of the Labor Party, Sunday, after Bar expressed support for a bill by Likud Beytenu Knesset member Miri Regev to regulate Jewish prayer on the Temple Mount in Jerusalem's Old City.

Farij said Bar's "populist statement ignores the explosiveness of the site and the inherent dangers" in the proposal, citing steps by Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu during his first term and afterward by then opposition leader Ariel Sharon in 2000. Farij added, "The Temple Mount/Al-Haram Ash-Sharif is too explosive a place for MK Bar to use 'to clean' himself from the leftism that was stuck on him after his meeting with Abu Mazen [Palestinian Authority Chairman Mahmoud Abbas -ed.]. Calling the status quo of Muslims praying on the Temple Mount and Jews praying at the Western Wall the key to preserving quiet, he called Bar's support a "dangerous provocation" reserved until now for "Regev and her friends," and cited Labor leadership for not condemning it.
