Avraham Fuah a été  libéré dans la nuit après avoir reçu l’ordre à la demande de la police par le tribunal de Jérusalem de quitter la ville. Les visites des juifs sur Mont du Temple sont strictement réglementées et surveillées par les jordaniens membres du Waqf (Autorité jordanienne chargée de garder le Mont du Temple depuis 67).
Les Juifs n’ont pas le droit d’y prier ou de procéder à toute autre forme de culte sur le site, les visites ne peuvent se faire que par petits groupes et seulement sous la stricte surveillance de la police israélienne et des gardes membres du Waqf islamique.

Des Juifs orthodoxes militants ont longtemps fait campagne pour mettre fin à ces mesures qu’ils dénoncent comme étant discriminatoires. Le gouvernement israélien, affirme, pour sa part ces mesures sont nécessaires pour maintenir le calme sur le site.

En réponse à l’arrestation de son fils, le père d’Avraham, le rabbin Michael Fuah, qui dirige la Yeshiva Hitzim, à Itamar, a demandé au gouvernement de mettre fin aux mesures draconiennes sur le Mont du Temple : « Le moment est venu de mettre fin à la situation honteuse dans laquelle les Juifs se trouvent. Ne pas être en mesure de prier dans le lieu le plus saint du peuple juif est un non-sens, c’est une reddition face au terrorisme musulman sur le Mont du Temple. Nous demandons au gouvernement d’Israël d’ordonner le retour de sa souveraineté dans tous les lieux du pays, y compris le Mont du Temple« .

  1. The Basic Law regarding the Knesset (basic laws are Israel’s equivalent to a constitution) states (sec. 7a) that

    A candidates’ list shall not participate in elections to the Knesset, and a person shall not be a candidate for election to the Knesset, if the objects or actions of the list or the actions of the person, expressly or by implication, include one of the following:

    negation of the existence of the State of Israel as a Jewish and democratic state;

    incitement to racism;

    support of armed struggle, by a hostile state or a terrorist organization, against the State of Israel.
    By following these rules the Likud and netania who must be disqualified for support of armed struggle on the mount against his country.
    Meir Kahane and his Kach party were disqualified from running for the Knesset in 1988 under this law. Haneen Zoabi was also disqualified by a full vote of the Knesset prior to this election, on the grounds that statements she made incited violence – but Israel’s Supreme Court overturned the result and allowed her to be seated. Zoabi, among her other actions, sailed on the Turkish ship Mavi Marmara in 2010, when Israeli sailors were attacked with iron bars and knives after they boarded the vessel to stop it from breaking the legal blockade of Gaza. She also once said that kidnapping wasn’t terrorism.

    • Decades have now gone by since the immortal words of Motta Gur, “The Temple Mount is in our hands!” blared across Israeli radio. The world took a collective breath as the Jewish people regained their ancient capital. Despite the miraculous victory, the secular elitists chose to hand the keys to the Temple Mount over to the Jordanian Wakf. After all, the rabbis declared it forbidden to ascend to our holiest site. This is despite the fact that, rabbinic sages of the past like the Rambam ascended to the Temple Mount with no qualms.

      Despite the security ban on public display of prayer on the Temple Mount, more and more Jews are ascending the mount.The issue has moved from the fringe of the Israeli body politic to the center. Led by Rabbi Yehuda Glick and Rabbi Richman, the Temple Mount movement uses the most basic argument there is, freedom of worship.

      This argument alone has compelled most on the right and many in the center to support Jewish prayer rights on the Temple Mount. Even the Supreme Court, known usually for its leftward judicial activism has supported unhindered Jewish prayer at Israel’s most holiest spot. The government though, through the security establishment has clamped down on Jewish prayer citing unofficial agreements with the Jordanians on following the legally fictional status quo.

      Jews that pray are systematically hauled off the Temple Mount and arrested by security officials. The arabs, who typically use the area to lay soccer or even urinate magically appear offended at the notion that Jews are using the area to serve the Creator. This plays into the security establishment’s fear of sparking more and more violence, when in fact there would be violence anyway. What the arab street is done is use that fear to stake and hold de facto control over the Jewish Nation’s holiest spot. Jewish leadership, mostly within the Israeli elite netaniawho regime are happy to oblige the arabs.
