No moving Jewish lips in prayer on Temple Mount, says Dichter

Can you believe this? In the Jewish state which is supposedly a democracy Jews are not allowed to even pray silently at our holiest place.

No moving Jewish lips in prayer on Temple Mount, says Dichter

"It is not possible to arrest a person for 'conversing with his maker,'" Dichter replied, using the same terminology of the MKs' letter.

"However it is possible to carry out an arrest for expressions of outward and demonstrative signs [of prayer]."

Where is that bastion of justice the Supreme Court? When it comes to the security fence, the protection of Sderot, etc. they have no problem in overruling the security forces. However suddenly here, when it is an issue relating to Judaism, the justices are silent.

hafuch - the supreme court has ruled it is perfectly legal to pray on temple mount as freedom of religion. However they left the decision on the ground to the security forces due to the potential for violence regarding the issue.

It is amazing how we cowtow to this. We give total freedom of religion in every right to every religion, but we let our own be trampled..
