According to the Netanyahu government’s Foreign Office, “after Jerusalem’s reunification in 1967, Israel’s leadership chose to uphold the existing status quo on the Temple Mount. Out of respect for Muslim sensibilities, it allowed the Islamic Waqf to continue to administer the Temple Mount, the holiest site in Judaism.” And, a paragraph or so later, the FM of PM Netanyahu notes: “Jews and other non-Muslims are not permitted to pray on the Temple Mount.”
And the Waqf has been relentless not only in stopping and reporting any Jew who dares speak to his or her Father in Heaven from the Temple Mount, they’ve also been digging and removing 9,000 tons of earth, millennia of Jewish artifacts and Jewish history, and dumping them by the truckload (an entire archaeological project has risen using that dumped soil – The Temple Mount Sifting Project).
Im Tirtzu stressed in a press release that “due to the highly sensitive nature of the Temple Mount, all digs must be approved by both the Waqf and the Israel Antiquities Authority.”
Students for the Temple Mount, a student-based organization promoting religious equality and freedom on the Temple Mount, also blasted the digs, stating: “The fact that the Waqf had the gall to publicly publish pictures of this illegal digging just emphasizes Israel’s lack of sovereignty on the Temple Mount.”
Comment: Vilnagaon.org does not believe in equality between Judaism and other religions on the Temple Mount. Vilnagaon.org believes in the supremacy of Judaism.
